Wondering how this challenge is going for all of you. I can jump on board now that the holidays are over but I have a difficult time eliminating all sugars including the natural found in fruit.

APRIL

Work as if it was your first day.
Forgive as soon as possible.
Love without boundaries.
Laugh without control
and never stop smiling.

Honey is sugar just like the white powdered stuff and they are both just about equally 'natural' - sugar comes from the sugar cane plant and is refined - the honey we buy is made by bees and is also refined [filtered, sometimes coloring added, sometimes sugar added, too] - both react the same way in our system for the most part and the same is true of agave juice, molassas and other sugars.

I find that when it comes to eliminating sugar, the first few days are the hardest and then it's relatively easy but I have to have 100% abstinence or I get cravings again. Good luck!!

I would think that honey wouldn't count for this, it's a natural sugar? Just my opinion.

I'm trying to cut out the cookies, donuts, cake, etc. Trips to the vending machine that could be replaced by fruits &/or vegetables.

I did pretty good yesterday, I only had two of those small candy bars, one was a Butterfinger & the other a Nestlee Crunch.

I did fight off the craving for one of the cup cakes in the refrigerator . . . . just really need to throw those out!!!

After I decided to take on this challenge yesterday, I did not have any sugary snacks. Despite the fact that there are still two cup cakes in my refrigerator.

Now to make it through today!

Can you be a bit more specific on "sugar free". Are we only avoiding sweets like cake, cookies, candy, sodas. If so, I am in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
