This month we are encouraging you to join us on our Sugar Free September Challenge!
The UK is currently in the middle of a sugar addiction epidemic! Sugar has been reported to be as addictive, IF NOT MORE, than cocaine. Its hidden in so many of the foods that we consume thinking they are healthy, such as smoothies and juice drinks as well as cereals, granola bars and even pre-cooked chicken – ever wondered how they get that use by date to last so long?! The best way to avoid unwanted refined sugar consumption is to eat foods that are as unprocessed as possible. Which may seem like a lot of work, but it’s actually pretty easy if you know how and with a little advanced prep and planning. AND – you dont have to be an amazing cook to make delicious snacks and meals. it just takes a few easy habit changes!
The saying goes… it takes 30 days to break a habit, so we will be trying for the whole of September to stay sugar free 80-90% of the time, but we understand that might seem quite daunting for a lot of you, so lets start small with an obtainable goal and then go from there…
Let’s all try to go sugar free for 7 days…
We are encouraging you to join us next week for the first 7 days of our sugar free September challenge – then if you feel great and want to keep it up, stay on board and share your stories with us!
What is sugar free September?
Sugar free September is a 7-30 day challenge for those of you wanting to give up sugar – fast.
Sugar free September is NOT some fad weight-loss diet – it is a challenge that will hopefully help you make a healthy lifestyle change for the better.
Going sugar free though can help to loose some weight, curb hunger and cravings, reduce fatigue and also help improve your skin, mood and concentration.
We are going completely refined sugar free – this means avoiding things like table sugar, biscuits, cakes, sweets, chocolate, ice cream, cereals, juices and smoothies or even fruit yoghurts. We will also try to limit our natural sugar in take too which can be found in foods such as fresh fruit.
You can still enjoy coffee, tea, sparkling water, sugar free treats, cheese, nuts, and much much more! It’s actually not that restrictive at all. Don’t worry – we will open your eyes to a delicious sugar free menu of choices when its comes to meals and snacks!
