Mini Challenge - NO Sugar

Ok, Dad has a Protein Metabolic Type and I am Mixed. So, I think we will focus on the Protein Type at first and see how I do with that. Haven't seen a blog entry from Carlyn or Emmalee yet. Please post your Metabolic Type so we have it recorded.

I have a mini challenge for this week. In your e-mails I will send another document called "The Top 10 Most Common Nutrition Mistakes" The first 2 items mentioned in this document are about sugar and artificial sweeteners. The mini-challenge I propose is that this week, beginning, Mon. August 16th:
We avoid ALL artificial sweetener and added sugars for one week.
We have all completed this challenge before, but if you were like me, you went right back to the old ways - flavored creamers in my morning coffee, diet sodas, crystal lite teas, etc. As you will read in the 10 mistakes document, once you wean yourself, then the cravings will go away.

I can't put the Metabolic Test or the 10 Mistakes document out on this site, because I purchased them from a company on line, for my family. Anyone interested in purchasing these documents themselves the website is www.thedietsolutionprogram.com .

I know that you have all been doing well and I encourage you to continue. We will ALL be winners in the end. Love to all, Mom

I say Yes to Stevia. It is all natural and that is what we are shooting for. I bought some at the grocery store last night. Emmalee, the Turvia is made from the Stevia plant also. I have read that some people have bad side effects from Truvia, so if you do, then get the pure Stevia.
Love ya, Mom
