Who is in for NOsugarVEMBER ???
This is something that Troy has been doing with his Fittabodies clients for over a year now (check the Fitta bodies blog here) , they get some awesome results and after reading on his blog that they are preparing to start again I thought it would be great to get a Body Beyond Baby team involved. You will be surprised how much sugar you consume on a daily basis (in various forms) and by eliminating it from your diet, along with a good exercise routine leave yourself open to gaining some fantastic results just in time for summer and before Christmas rolls around. So, rules, borrowed from Troy's blog they are as follows:
No cakes, chocolates, pastries, ice creams, soft drink
No Fruit juices, boost juices, smoothies, milk shakes
No white potato
No sugar in tea or coffee
No sweetened yogurt
No dried fruit
2 – 3 pieces of fruit per day only
2 slices of wholegrain bread per day maximum
1 cup of cooked pasta per serve a maximum of two times per week
You are all going to lose some weight in this month, but the main aim of this 30 days without sugar is to show you how much sugar you normally consume and to hopefully curb your sugar cravings.
By the end of this month, you will have developed habits that will see you;
Drink tea and coffee without sugar
Only drink alcohol once or a maximum of twice per week
Only eat sweets once or a maximum of twice per week
Learn that meals should be made up of large amounts of non root vegetables
Treat pasta or rice as a accompaniment to a meal, not the main part of the meal
Never drink soft drinks
Avoid boost and other blended drinks
Learn that dried fruit is not a health food
Choose lower sugar yogurts
So who’s in?
Please put your name down in the comments section and we can kick the sugar as team 'Body Beyond Baby'
If you break your sugar free promise, you must log your indiscretion on the blog and perform 5 burpees. If you happen to break the rules again, you must log your indiscretion and double the burpees. For each indiscretion, you must double the burpees. Just think, 5 times and you will be up to 80 burpees on the 5th occasion!
And be honest! You signed up to this, nobody forced you! You need some sort of guidelines to keep you on track!
and to make it more interesting we will be going up against the Fitta bodies team so the losing team (as in the team that has the most amount of people cave in) will have to perform all of their burpees all over again - or something equally as mean.....Troy and I will nut that one out and get back to you.
