How to Successfully Complete a 7-day No Sugar Challenge


Avoiding sugar, let alone finding food that does not include it, can be super tricky. It's in everything, from your morning oatmeal to your afternoon snack. To make matters worse, it can harm your health, make you feel slumped, affect your mood, and potentially cause you to gain weight.

Eliminating sugar from your diet will make you feel more refreshed and able to maintain the energy needed to go about your day. Benefits of a sugar-free week include losing weight faster, especially belly fat, younger-looking skin, long-lasting energy, and the prevention of diabetes. Let's start our sugar-free journey together! Here is a detailed meal plan for a week without sugar, so you can make substantial substitutions that will still please your taste buds!
