Lots of illness in my house, too, but it looks like we are all well now, even my little girl... finally. Anyhow as for being sugar and artificial free... I pretty much have been all of February except for that s/f syrup for my coffee, but I am cutting down to less of that at least. I can't even recall any sweets either. So, I'd say for the most part, I'm doing A-OK with the challenge. :)

Hungry For Change is an excellent informative film... So is Food Matters, Forks Over Knives, and Dying to Have Known.

I have no idea how on track I am with this challenge and have no plans on going back the last few days to figure it out. I've been sick and what little I ate was not good.

But am ready for a new day and to get back on track.

Found the challenge finally. I've been cutting back on my soda intake already this month. I also have stop putting anything in my coffee. I just drink it black now.

Enjoy the moment

I can't wait to try the pizza crust recipe.

Thanks for all the advice everyone. I'm kind of new to this.

A friend of mine told me I need to watch Hungry for Change. It's got a lot of Paleo eating information from what I understand. So I'm sharing with you all that it is on NetFlix, and I will probably be watching it soon. If you're not on board with eating less sugar... you might be after seeing this (or so my friend says)

That's why you're the boss: you know how to delegate, lol.

Unfortunately, unless you're a genius at reverse-engineering recipes and triangulating ingredient lists, nutrition panels, and dietary values, there's no way to differentiate between naturally-occurring sugar (like the 10g in your apple, for instance) and added sugar (as in conventional sweets and beverages) in your tracker. If you are keeping count outside of SP, only include the latter in your 7-15g goal to get a more accurate picture of your processed sugar intake.

DSD... for those of us who like to have a goal set each day and reach it because we are OCD....

How many grams a day should we shoot for. I was aiming for between 7-15ish, and an apple has 10g of sugars. I'm a teensy bit lost.

Today it begins. The first day of the Team Zombie "28 Days Later Challenge." The plan is that for the month of February (28 days) team members are challenged to do everything they can to reduce the sugars and artificial sweeteners in their life. Our primary focus here is the sweeteners found in sweets and drinks, but the overall goal here is to reduce the need for sweeteners in everything we consume.
Truth is, it will be almost impossible to go completely sugar free. But check the labels and look for artificial sweeteners. They are our real enemy here, and are turning us into sugar zombies, gradually increasing our need to eat more and more and more sweetener.
It will take a little bit of work, checking the labels and finding alternatives to those things swimming in aspartame and the like, but it is something we can all do.
Good luck. The future of mankind may be depending on you.
