    Helpful list!

    My rule of thumb is generally not to have anything with sugar in the first five ingredients. (Although sometimes it can be the second or third ingredient but amount to less than a gram of sugar. ?)

    Thats a good rule of thumb! When I was growing up we could not buy cereal unless the first 2 ingredients were not sugar. Crazy how hard that was to find cereal I liked that was not loaded w/ sugar. 🙂

    I try to stay away from the substitute sucrolose as well as it spikes the glycemic index more than sure something like Stevia or Swerve.

    Friends! How was Day 1? Did you take a before photo and log your weight? Sugar grams? Anyone surprised how much sugar is in everything that is not in its natural state. Plank challenge? You still have time to do it!

    Day 1 complete! Eliminated sugars today and completed the planks. Thanks, Sierra, for creating a platform to help hold me accountable. I am excited to watch the next 30 days unfold!

    Hmm … well, I haven’t had added sugar in 6 1/2 years. Does that count?

    Great job Kristin! I’m excited to see how much lifestyle change we can make as a group -The next 30 days are going to be GREAT! I know that when I cut added sugar out of my diet my mind feels completely different- its something I want everyone to feel. I love that you are on board!

    Not really. I just completely cut out flour and sugar, which pretty much means unprocessed foods. (I do eat vegetarian protein products though.) For me, simple works best.

    Does Stevia work for a sweetner for coffee? Or a sugar free creamer. I might just go with tea. I like passion Starbucks tea. I did see fruit juice as a sweetner on the teabag package. Also is this okay? [Image]

    Cicely – I ask for Passion Tea with no sugar, and they will do that. Good luck!

    Or should I say unsweetened. In any case, I’m talking about the prepared tea Starbucks sells, not the teabag.

  12. Sierra Lavelle (Mindful Carrot)

    Stevia is a great sweetener. I prefer the liquid form for my coffee-I feel like it isn’t as bitter but thats just my opinion. I would avoid the sugar free creamer as it has chemicals and artificial sweeteners that we should really avoid. RE: the tea Ask the people at the counter as they have all the nutrition facts available. I’m guessing if its a tea bag there shouldn’t be any added sugar but if its a packet then beware. 🙂
