No Sugar November Nutrition Challenge
Why: Sugar is more addictive than most illegal drugs. We live in a culture in which sugar (in multiple forms) is added to almost everything, and it causes a slew of health problems! Break your sugar addiction by cutting it out for 21 days. You will have more energy, burn fat instead of glucose as fuel, feel better doing workouts, and possibly lose weight/inches!
