couldn't resist a hot X bun which someone gave me but kept to home-made yoghourt instead of ice cream.

This one is hard on the holidays, but I can say that I didn't have as much candy this Easter or a decadent dessert. I had 5 or 6 Jelly beans and a chocolate pudding cup.

I stopped with soda and stopped with junk food and most desserts, except pudding and flavored yogurt.

I am not up to the hidden sugars yet, I am still getting rid of the visible ones.

I think this would be the main challenge I need for the next month. More than any other.

Hello all!

Bottom line: Sugar, well too much refined sugar, sucrose, fructose, etc. is not good for you! And it's in just about everything these days! It's important to check labels before buying and ingesting!local paper. Intake of too much sugar, and especially items with High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) can be detrimental to my body and my diet. More so than I even knew way back then.

We cannot stop the barrage of chocolate and other sweet delectables that flood the market every perceived holiday but we CAN take control and win the war for ourselves, our health and our bodies. This weeks MC is to keenly watch the amount of refined sugar, fructose, glucose & HFCS that we ingest into our bodies. It's in much, much more than just chocolate & other sweet stuff.

Now, and here's the tricky part, HFCS can be lurking in places that you might not realize they are. For instance there is loads of HCFS in canned sodas (we broke that cycle 2 weeks ago, yes?), in breakfast cereals, in ketchup and in snack bars & power bars. So, your MC is to read labels & choose wisely!

For 5 days out of the 7 this MC is in effect, make a substitution of a healthy snack when you find too much HFCS, refined sugar, glucose or fructose in a food that you might otherwise have eaten had you not been paying attention.

Report in this Forum exactly where you are finding the hidden sugar in your diet and what substitution you made so that it can help us all!!!

Also, did you know that refined sugar is THE number one offender in causing 'belly fat'? Ewwww....and we just finished all those crunches! Don't let all that work go to waste!

Read this one page SP article about sugar substitutions: tinyurl.com/2ztmmr

Read more about HCFS and why it's harmful: tinyurl.com/pnz36

Read about breakfast cereal scams & how much sugar there really IS in the morning staple:
tinyurl.com/32w78g

Don't forget to get your 3 points EACH for reading the articles.....above all, have fun with this and enjoy your week.

Hugs ya'll and remember to Say No to HFCS!

L.
