Why Join The No Sugar Challenge?
Reason #1: Boost Your Immunity
Did you know that eating less sugar not only improves your overall health, but also gives your immune system the boost it needs to protect you from germs, viruses, and chronic illness?
With the coronavirus outbreak taking center stage, now is the time to take care of your immune system so it can take care of you!
Eliminating added sugar from your diet doesn’t have to be hard.
And you can STILL enjoy a treat now and then.
You just have to get the details on how it’s done.
Reason #2: Get Your Energy Back
Before you write this challenge off as another fleeting diet trend, know we’re in the business of creating sustainable, LASTING habit changes. No crazy detoxes – your body already does that itself every day.
Because here’s the deal… you can get your energy back
Cutting out added sugar can lead to benefits like:
- WAY more energy
- Loss of unwanted fat
- Lowered inflammation
- Clearer, glowing skin
- Mental clarity
- Reduced risk of type 2 diabetes
- A well-functioning immune system
And we promise — cutting out sugar doesn’t have to be painful or difficult.
Extreme self-quarantine boredom got you stress-eating that box of Little Debbie’s?
We’ve got your back.
Trouble kicking that late-night sweet snack?
Don’t worry — we have alternatives!
Reason #3: Reduce Chronic Stress
Fun fact: Sugar is stressful.
As if you need more stress in your life right now…
Plus, we all know how chronic stress feels.
That overwhelming, wired and tired feeling?
Well, it turns out that even if you control every other stressful factor in your life, the simple act of eating that donut can deplete your energy and nutrient stores and make you less resilient.
On the flipside — happy, stable blood sugar levels give you the energy and physical and mental boost you need to get more done without the Friday evening meltdown.
Here’s what happened when Mike quit sugar…
Before cutting sugar, my inflammation was out of control – I couldn’t stretch without losing my breath.
When I didn’t have sugar I constantly had headaches (detox), I was majorly addicted to sodas, if I didn’t have a dessert after dinner – I was in a mood.
I knew I had to make a change after my son’s 6th birthday party.
I dressed up as spider man and holy cow, it did not look good.
To top it off, I felt like my body was telling me to make a change when I had a headache during the party until I had a piece of cake.
I went keto on March 4, 2019 and the picture is the transformation. Since cutting the sugar, I have about 10 million times the energy, I have not gotten sick since I started – not even the dreaded coronavirus!
I never have headaches caused by food. My joints and overall inflammation is at an all-time low. I don’t have dessert cravings. I can walk by candy now without the fear of guilt. And most of all – I don’t need it anymore.

10 Surprising Things You Need to Know About Sugar
If you’ve been thinking about quitting sugar… we hope these 10 facts helps you pull the trigger.
#1: Eating sugar can weaken your body’s defenses by 75%+ for 4-6 hours.
Did you know that eating sugar can put your white blood cells in a temporary coma?
With the coronavirus outbreak taking center stage, now is the time to power up your immune system – not weaken it.
But most of us are eating WAY too much sugar every day without realizing it.
#2: Nearly 70% of Americans are exceeding the recommended dietary guidelines for added sugar intake each day.
Most of us are eating WAY too much sugar every day without realizing it. With hidden sugar in a lot of processed foods, it’s no surprise that 70% of Americans eat more than the recommended guidelines daily sugar intake[*].
#3: Eating too much sugar can lead to chronic diseases
- Weakened immune response[*]
- Unwanted weight gain[*]
- Low energy levels[*]
- Increased risk for heart disease[*]
- Increased risk for type 2 Diabetes[*]
- Chronic inflammation[*]
- Certain skin conditions, like acne[*]
- Skin sagging and wrinkles[*]
- Symptoms of depression and other mood disorders[*]
#4: The average American consumes 17 teaspoons of added sugar a day.
The American Heart Association recommends that adult women eat no more than 24 grams (6 teaspoons) of added sugar per day and men no more than 36 grams (9 teaspoons) per day[*]. Oops!
Research shows beverages account for almost half of all added sugars consumed by the U.S. population[*].
#5: More than 70% of packaged foods contain added sugar
Three out of four products you buy at the supermarket will contain added sugars.
Sugar lurks in unlikely places – like tonic water, sports drinks, condiments, processed meats, sauces, crackers, bread, protein bars, salad dressings, and tomato sauce.
Products with certain health claims, like “diet,” “natural,” or “low-fat,” may still be loaded with sugar (we’ll teach how to understand nutrition labels).
Not only do these sad, but empty calories also add up over time — subtle doses of sugar throughout your day causes brain fog and energy slumps that make it difficult to function at the level you know you’re capable of.
#6. Food companies may reduce the portion size on labels to make products appear to be lower in sugar.
Be careful when you’re reading labels – the small serving sizes can trick you into thinking a product has less sugar than it actually does!
#7. The average can of soda contains about 10 teaspoons of added sugar
Yes, one little can of soda will put you over the daily limit.
If you drink one can of your favorite soda per day, that’s 70 teaspoons of added sugar per week, roughly 300 teaspoons a month and 3,650 teaspoons a year.
That’s enough sugar to fill up two and a half basketballs with sugar.
#8. Sugar consumption can reduce your ability to feel full, making it even easier to eat more of it.
Eating sugar triggers cravings for even more sugar.
It’s an unhealthy cycle.
#9. Added sugars account on average for almost 270 calories or more than 13% of calories per day in the U.S. population.

Health Benefits of Quitting Sugar
Life is sweeter without sugar. And so are the health benefits.
Here’s what can happen when you reduce sugar:
Stronger immune response
Sugar cuts your immune response in half for up to five hours after you eat it[*].
When you eat less sugar, your immune system stays strong, keeping you safe from harmful viruses and bacteria.
Sugar causes low-level inflammation across your body and brain, which can leave you feeling bad all day[*]. Cutting sugar out will turn off inflammation and keep your body strong.
Sugar ramps up your skin’s oil production, which can block your pores and cause acne[*].
Want clearer skin? Ditch the sugar.
Eating a low-sugar diet is a great way to slim down.
Studies show that sugar links to rapid weight gain and can blunt your insulin response, which hurts your metabolism[*].
Say goodbye to sugar crashes! When you eat less sugar, your energy levels will stay far more stable, all day long[*].
Improved sleep quality
You’ll even sleep better on a low-sugar diet.
People who eat a lot of sugar consistently report lower sleep quality, as well as trouble falling asleep[*].
Improved brain function
Sugar causes brain inflammation that can leave you feeling foggy all day[*].
You’ll be amazed by how clear-headed you feel after a few days without sugar.
Trade those empty calories for real food! You’ll feel better (and you may even lose weight!).
Sugar feeds the bad bacteria that cause plaque buildup on your teeth[*]. Cutting back on the sweets will keep your dental health strong.
Improved heart health
Even your heart is healthier without sugar. Added sugars increase your risk for heart attack and diabetes[*]. If you’ve ever had trouble staying on track with a diet because of your sweet tooth, then this challenge is for you.
