For one day, TOMORROW, you will give up everything and anything that has sugar - I don't mean the natural kind found in fruit, but the refined stuff that is in almost everything you eat!  WHY AM I PROPOSING THIS???  Besides the health benefit of eliminating sugar from your diet, this will help you be more aware of what's in your food.  YOU MUST CHECK FOOD LABELS!!!  You will soon realize that you are eliminating most foods that are processed.... most breads, ketchup, BBQ sauce, flavored yogurt, etc.. 

Some examples of foods to avoid:
  • White bread (includes any bread with white flour in it) and some brown breads.... READ the INGREDIENTS LIST!
  • Pasta, unless whole grain
  • White flour, and products made with it such as cake, cookies, crackers, pretzels, doughnuts, bagels, and muffins
  • Potatoes and potato chips
  • Corn and corn chips
  • Sugar and products with added sugar, e.g. canned fruits in syrup
  • Jams and jellies containing added sugars
  • Syrups
  • Salad dressings and sauces with added sugar, such as Teriyaki sauce
  • Fruit drinks containing added sugar
  • Sugar-sweetened soft drinks
  • Sugar-cured meats (e.g. ham is often cured with salt and sugar)
  • Beer
