Have you ever thought about giving up sugary food like cakes and lollies but never had the motivation? Then why not take on the Sugar Free September Challenge? You will not only be helping your health but also helping people dealing with the devastating effects of Muscular Dystrophy. It’s a win-win!
The 10 Rules of Sugar Free September:
There are many different types of sugars and many foods that contain them so we let you decide how much sugar you want to remove. However we have come up with a list of 10 Rules that we suggest you follow in order to cut out the worst offending sugars in your diet.
- Sweetened soft drinks
- Fruit juices
Sugar we add to tea/coffee/cereal or use in cooking
- Jam and spreads
- Biscuits, cakes and muffins
- Ice cream and desserts
- Flavoured milks
- Low fibre, high sugar cereals
A whole month without chocolate and sweets is definitely not easy so make sure that people know you are doing this tough challenge and sponsor you to give up! All donations are issued with a tax receipt which is another great incentive for people to donate.
The challenge will begin on Friday 1 September and will finish on Saturday 30 September at midnight and is completely FREE to sign up!
