30 Days to a Cleaner Diet: Day 26

sugar cubesDay 26 Rule: No more Added Sugars.

Sugar=Empty calories in most cases nowadays. The fact that it was added in the first place tells you that it was not necessary, and as Americans we have managed to find an excuse to add sugar into EVERYTHING. You’ve only got 4 days left! (Yay!) Take the time to cut all processed sugars out of your life and just see where it leads you. If you’re not sure about the sugar content of something, check the nutrition label. Keep in mind that some sugars are naturally-occurring, such as those in fruit and milk. But many packaged products contain processed sugars, which will likely be identified in the ingredient list as “sucrose”.

30 Days to a Cleaner Diet: Day 13

fruitDay 13 Goal: Eat 2 fruits today.

The point to this is simply to encourage you to satisfy your sweet tooth with a healthier option. The sugars that are naturally occurring in fruits are much kinder to your body than the one in an Oreo cookie. That being said, sugar is still sugar, so don’t go nuts. Eat 2 fruits today, and at the end of the day, see if you’ve eaten as much junk food as you normally do.

30 Days to a Cleaner Diet: Day 8

no candyDay 8 Goal: No candy allowed today.

Sugar is often my biggest weakness when it comes to sticking to a diet. I can stop frying foods and I can drink more water. But I cannot pass up a tootsie roll that is staring me in the face. So that is your job today. No Candy. One day is enough to prove to yourself that it is possible.
