Hi all,
A friend of mine got me on to this challenge commencing July 1:

Reduce your intake of juice, soda, ice-cream, lolly/sweets, pastries, white processed carbs, diet products and sugar in coffee/tea. Opt for wholegrain carbs and fresh produce washed down with loads of H20. 50 days from July 1 2012.

The challenge is run by Natalie Carter of New Outlook Fitness in Sydney, Australia (disclaimer: I do not know her, nor have she and I ever exchanged money). You can register for the challenge via her website: http://www.newoutlookfitness.com.au/
Registering will sign you up to receive email updates.

I'm all signed up and raring to go; is anyone interested in joining me? happy

Sounds great and is similar to a clean diet anyways. Good luck with it! I would like to do it but don't have much faith in myself at the moment to not give in to my chocolate addiction!

I have actually significantly lowered my 'added' sugar intake lately though, but I'm just wondering what her take is on fruit? My 'cleanish' (!) diet has me eating a lot of fruit because it's natural and I love it, but it keeps my overall sugar intake quite high. Does she tell you to cut right down on it?

Might as well try the No Air Challenge after you're done with this idiotic endeavor.

That doesn't actually sound too dissimilar to how I eat anyway! I'm not a great fan of sugar and try and avoid it in processed foods - so like you've said, I'll try and opt for wholemeal/grain rather than white (though pasta and rice I will still go for refined - but that's more to do with my boyfriend's preferences as we eat/live together). I've never been a fan of fruit juice (I was the kid that always watered it down) and if I have refined sugar now I tend to get a bit hyperactive and I can't sleep!

I find cutting cakes, chocolate, sweets etc fairly easy as I don't have a sweet tooth (I might be lucky like that) but my sugar does come in these forms...

Alcohol
Birthday/Occasion Cake
Fruit

However I DO use aspartame sweetener and drink diet soda on occasion which can also be controversial for some people, but it's my personal choice.

I've been doing it for a few months now, you enjoy the experience and weight loss :)

I don't do any kind of grains either ... I know, completely bonkers, I shall die of a clogged colon or something ;)

My understanding is that you can have 1-2 serves of low-sugar fruit (apples, berries, grapefruit, rockmelon/cantaloupe - there may be others?) per day. For some, that will mean cutting right down. For others (myself included), it will mean focussing on specific varieties.

Re: chocolate addiction - It's called a challenge for a reason ;)

Grain-free doesn't sound too crazy to me, but then, I'm Coeliac ;)

Glad to hear you've had a positive sugar-free experience :)
