Now that we have been learning about sugar for a while I decide to pick an article that will help us decide on whether or not to do the 10 day sugar challenge.
Shed That Sweet Tooth from TIME to Kids, has talked about how sugar is something that many of us can't resist. Although, by resisting less sugar it can reduce your chances of overweight, obesity, and tooth decay. For those of you that don't know what a tooth decay is, it is the decay of your outer surface of your tooth that can result a bacterial action. Majority of the food we consume has sugar in it, but it all doesn't apply on fresh fruit and vegetables. Majority of the sugar is placed on "added" or "free" sugar products. We might assume that some foods don't have sugar because the labels don't say they consume sugar, but they are know as "hidden" sugars. It's important that one reads the ingredients to make sure what the product consumes. Scientist are recommending that one cuts down on their sugars at least 10%. Although, it can be hard because we are all so used to eating sugary foods, but it is easier to avoid a great amount of sugar in fresh fruit and vegetables.
What can be a good way to stop eating so much sugar? Do you think you can handle not eating sugar for 10 days? Why do you enjoy eating sugar even if you are not craving it? Do you think that by starting a diet it can reduce your chances on getting a tooth decay? Do you think that by reducing your sugars at least 10% it will help change the way you feel?
