Can you go a day…. a week ….. or how about a month without eating sugar?
I did it and so can you!
As the Passover holidays culminate, we, as Jewish women are ready to give back to ourselves by focusing in on what our bodies need right now. So, if you have been thinking about making an empowering life changing event to improve your health and well being- then this “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge” is for you. Join me with hundreds of women to take control of their bodies, this Thursday, April 8th as we will begin our “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge.”
A. Comment below with your thoughts and share with all our “detoxers” at TheJewishHostess.com.
B. Have an e-mail buddy to report to on a daily basis. Everyday send to your supporter
> if you were or weren’t successful on that given day
> why you were or weren’t
> how your mind and body feels
Example… Hi Susie, this is Sari. I was successful on the first day of my challenge. I had all my meals prepared from the morning , which helped me to be successful thru out the day. My mind feels strong and determined! My body still feels bloated from the holiday. Speak to you tomorrow!
C. Weigh yourself Thursday morning April 8, and resist the temptation to weigh yourself until May 8. While weight loss is a give in, I want to draw our focus to health and wellness and not to the numbers on the scale.
D. Incorporate clean healthy balanced meals by using all the food groups such as protein, carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, and “good for you” fats.
E. Join me and all of our “Sugar Detoxers” on Friday morning, May 7th from 10-12 for a morning to celebrate our accomplishments with a free inspiring class experience. RSVP….ASAP! (regardless of your ability to finish the challenge, everyone will be a winner!) (Brooklyn, NY area)

My mission for this “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge”
TO LIVE A LIFE YOU LOVE IN A BODY YOU LOVE, by a heightened awareness of the foods we put into our bodies. Realizing that “what you DESIRE you can a will ACHIEVE!”
What to do today:
A. Eliminate simple sugars completely from your diet. Read labels! Manufactures hide the name “sugar” to fool us. The most common are called fructose and corn syrup.
B. Do not restock your pantry with all the sugary foods that you simply cannot resist.
C. Load your refrigerator and pantry with all fresh unprocessed foods.
D. Visit the health food store and check out foods that you might enjoy such as cereals and oatmeal. Ask for the healthiest sweetener available such as Agave.
E. Determine what staple foods you will be eating and make sure it is sugar free.
F. Take the time to plan and prepare your meals- this is the most important step to success!
Dos and Dont’s:
-Artificial food sweeteners are a don’t! They are chemical based and is the exact opposite of the health and wellness benefits that we are striving for.
-Adding sugar to your morning coffee is acceptable only if absolutely needed. (I am so thankful that I’m not a coffee drinker!)
-Do enjoy every combination of whole foods.
-Don’t fret the small stuff- if you falter, just get back on track immediately.
-Do have sweet whole foods on hand (especially the first week) such as sweet potatoes and bananas, even dried fruit, so when a sugar temptation strikes, you will be well equipped.
-Do have regular meals everyday. (breakfast, lunch dinner and snacks.) Having regular spaced meals is an insurance plan that will maintain stable blood sugar levels.
- Do know that for most of us, this challenge will be at times very difficult. But, feel assured that it does get easier as every day goes by.
My Sample Menu:
8:00;-oatmeal with Greek nonfat plain yogurt and berries
(if I’m teaching a class and then working out I drink apple juice)
12:OO; post workout; a repeat of 8 am meal or hard boiled eggs and banana
3:00;walnuts, lentil soup or sweet potato and hard boiled eggs
6:oo; salmon, brown rice, vegetables or salmon brown rice sushi and vegetables
8:oo ; almonds and fresh dates
Note that I did not include quantities. I believe that you should eat until you are satisfied. This is what I like to eat, there are hundreds of great combinations of meals that will suit your taste buds that are healthy and sugar free.
With lots of health and wellness! Xoxo Sari
