No added sugar or artificial sweeteners for 21 days.
This includes removing sweeteners such as: sugar, honey, pure maple syrup, molasses, sugary alcoholic beverages, agave nectar, sucralose, aspartame, etc. Artificial sweeteners can make sugar cravings worse or prevent you from stopping the cravings.
OK to have during the Challenge
Fruit, stevia, monk fruit, wine, and unsweetened alcohol are allowed. It's not my intention to make this an alcohol-free challenge.
Many high-quality supplements and protein powders contain monk fruit or stevia, which is why it's OK to include these two more natural ingredients.
You will build your meals around a lot of vegetables, fruit, proteins, healthy fats, grains with zero added sugar, and unsweetened beverages.
