  • I started three weeks ago. The best thing I did this year. I breath better, I think better, and I feel great.I suggest to break free all at once not gradually. Enjoy.

  • I gave up processed sugar last February--well, to be honest, I do have a hankering for ice cream from time to time and who says no to birthday cake?-- but for the most part, I'm sugar free! I use honey, agave, maple syrup and dates for sweetening. Since giving up sugar, I've lost 20lbs and I handle stress better! And I don't feel out of control when it comes to sugar, like I used to. I control my own consumption, which feels wonderful!

  • I pretty much gave up all processed foods for 22 days now including today!
