Don’t give into temptation this weekend; stay strong with your No Sugar lifestyle and in a few more days it will pay off. Today was way easier and I feel like I have more energy. This may be a placebo effect, but I’ll see how I feel in a few more days.
I think the trick is to be consistent with what you’re eating. That’s why I have developed a routine and try to eat the same things daily.
Here is what I ate as of 6:02pm EST
According to a story that I found on CNN, cutting sugar in just 10 days has amazing results for children. So if you started doing this, it may be time to get your kids involved, too.

Soooo, I made it! It’s almost the end of day 2 and I didn’t give into temptation. I know it might seem silly to some of you, but you’ll be surprised at how many things I can’t eat because of the added sugar.
Here are the things I ate today (minus a pink lady apple that I forgot to take a photo of). I also drank another can of seltzer water and filtered water throughout the day.

According to The American Heart Association, the daily recommended intake for “most American women, is no more than 100 calories per day and no more than 150 calories per day for men (or about 6 teaspoons per day for women and 9 teaspoons per day for men)”. I used to eat WAY more than that!
I found this really cool infographic from the DailyMail showing how much sugar is in some of the common foods that we eat. (Also, don’t mind the fruits, your body can’t function without sugars, but they should be natural).
Jar salads have become super popular over the past few years and I never realized how easy they were to make. Usually when I come home from a long day I don’t want to make a complicated dinner. So I’ll have a salad, some fruits, veggies, or anything that doesn’t require cooking.
Instead of just munching on boring veggies, I decided to spice up my dinner with this fun salad. If you’re interested — keep reading!
