I'm also curious about artificial (saccharine ect) sweetners. If they count I've got ALOT of adjusting to do. Breakfast alone would have 4 servings added sugar (brown rice syrup in my cereal bars; sucralose in my protein shake; sweet n low in the coffee). What an eye opener

I'm just starting and am nervous about giving up sugar, yet I know I must, as it rules me. From the sound of things this means giving up artificial sweeteners too YIKES! How can I sweeten my coffee?

If honey is added to a food that doesn't naturally contain it (like in a baking recipe, for example), then it would be considered added sugar.

You'll get an email each day with the day's challenge, which could be a task, just reading a piece of content, etc. You can access the calendar here:

You'll get daily emails with challenges for the day. If you've been in the challenge for a while but haven't been using it, I'd click Leave This Team at the bottom of our team page, rejoin the challenge and then you can start from Day 1.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

Good morning team:

I haven't been active on this team for quite some time.

Can you all tell me how this challenge works exactly? I would appreciate it.

Yesterday I had decided to try to not eat sugar starting today. Funny thing I am already craving my dark chocolate? Anyway after I made that decision yesterday, I joined this challenge last night, I didn't do the day one challenge, I read it and was going to discuss this today. I would like to read day one challenge again, can I journal even if I started no sugar thing now? I'm pretty sure I can answer most of the questions on it or should I just start over and do it the way day one says. Actually I was just able to reset back to Day 1, now I have to do the quiz again, I guess. Any imput would be helpful.

It said mine was under control too, but I feel like you can never learn too much about sugar control. I fail sometimes too that is why I am taking the challenge.

I like putting Splenda in my recipe instead of sugar. I like Truvia baking blend when I want something to get brown or to make caramel. So is it okay to use artificial sweeteners in this challenge?

Browniet, this sounds delicious but I cannot have the artificial sweetener in the SF puddings either [stomach rebels] but I have been playing with protein powder, cocoa powder and truvia and vanilla and mixed in coffee for a hot mocha ..still fine-tuning measurements then will make an iced version for this summer.

Yesterday I had lemon lush; a dessert my friend made & brought over day 2 (4/24) of rejoining SP. I had 3TBS that day & a serving Thurs. I don't if this if cheating or not but for those who crave choc this may be a "fix". I blend 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (original) 1/4 pk of sugar free instant pudding & 1 serving (2 scoops) of vanilla whey protein powder. And drink! It is delicious. So far I have only had banana cream flavor, but I have sf cheesecake & sf chocolate waiting in the wings. 1C almond milk is 50 cal, 1/4pk of sf banana cream instant pudding 25 cals, protein powder 120 cal = 195 cal drink

NO EXCUSES ONLY RESULTS!

OK, I can do better. I've been having SF chocolate chia seed pudding every morning, and then a smidgen (think pinky-nail size) of chocolate later. Even skipping my breakfast cereal because they added cane sugar to it. Tomorrow, no sugar at all!

Hi!

I love chocolate too so I don't have it in the house. I'm on day 3 of the challenge and this afternoon, I desperately wanted something sweet. I finally remembered I had SF chocolate pudding that I made the other day in the frig. I enjoyed every taste and that was it until supper. One day at a time. tomorrow will be a bigger challenge since I will not be home but will be spending the afternoon with a group of friends knitting. Wish me luck

I got the same thing. I guess other people may have it worse. I love chocolate too (who doesn't?), but I can stop at one piece if I have to. However, I need that one piece.

Sugar is my greatest downfall. Since joining sparkpeople, eating good natural food, little healthy fats. 2 weeks later, my sugar craving has declined. Didn't think possible. I did use a slightly sweet marinade to grill salmon & activate my sugar cravings. Wow! learned a good lesson from that. Removed All sugar from my home. Using stevia for now.

I'm currently trying to cut down to 1-2 helpings of sugar a day. I made some chicken in my slow cooker last night and the recipe called for 2 tbsp sugar. Would one helping of my chicken also count as a sugar helping do you think?

I would agree. Some more long term programs do suggest you cut out as much sugar as you can, but I think for this 21 day program, we're just looking at refined sugar.

When carbs break down in your body , it becomes sugars. I have a craving for sugars after I have eaten. Sugars in fruit? As long as it is 25g a day?

Hello everyone I'm Izzie. Today I joined this challenge it's my 2nd one. I'm on day 1 and I took the quiz for sugar craving. My results are I have sugar craving under control, so my question is should I be doing this challenge? Will I still learn something from this challenge?

Keep Going! You Can Do This! Izzie!

I would think when we are discussing sugar, it is refined sugar ,and not complex carbs we find in fruit,right ?

I wondered about that myself. Usually I just move on to the next day and forfeit the points. If I do get the task done, I go back and record it.

If i do some of the tasks, but not all of them, should I move on to the next day or repeat the day that I am on. So far, I have not successfully kept to 1-2 servings of added sugar per day, and so am not sure whether to keep repeating until I do so or move to another day.
