Slash The Sugar Challenge starts August 15
Overdoing the Sweet Stuff?
This 5-week challenge does not expect you to avoid everything sweet (which is good news if you like coffee with a little sugar) but instead focuses on healthy progress and cutting back. Your goal is to cut your sugar consumption in half, which for most of us is a realistic goal.
Here's how the program works: we will start by learning a little more about sugar and how much of it is in common foods. We'll learn ways to cut sugar and take a close look at sugar substitutes. Each week, you'll take some quizzes and track some of the sugary foods and drinks you consume using the tracker in this portal. Sound easy? Let's get started.
Program Dates: August 15 September 16
Register by Friday, 08/19
Total Point Value: 25
Weekly Requirements: Answer all of the questions each week of the program, and track your sugar consumption on at least 15 days during the challenge. Use the Nutrition Tracker to track sugar consumption.
