Day 1 - Get Rid Of That Sugar!

Today is Day 1 and it is time to eliminate foods with added sugar from your diets. And remember to look at food labels when buying stuff from the grocery store. Make sure you don't see the words sugar, dextrose (or anything that ends with -ose), and agave to name a few.

Post your meals for the day in comments section.

Do we send you photos/ measurements now or later?

Dawson said...

You hold on to your photos. You can email me your measurements if you like.

Money??? What money??? Kidding. Yep. I got it.

Hey Martin. Sounds like you are off to a good start. I'm just curious as to what brand of sausages you have. I only ask that because a lot of sausages and bacon have sugar as an additive.

Thanks
