No PS challenge

Drum rolls please: “Ladies and Gentleman; all humans in the Weight race; Thin or not so Thin people; you are hereby challenged to the first ever ‘No PS challenge’!”

“WHAT THE HECK IS HE TALKING ABOUT?” I can hear you ask.

Yesterday’s post was about the poison that sugar is and that some of us are addicted to. So this challenge is “No Poison Sugar” for a whole month. For most of us it means 30 days but once converted in US, it means 45 days for the US residents. Just kidding 30 days no matter where you are.

Think about how great it would be for your body to have a month where you don’t have this sugar cloud over your head. The challenge will be a good excuse to refuse cakes or other sweets people bring to work. “Sorry I can’t have any, I am a participant in an international No PS challenge!” Won’t that be sweet? :)

Are any of you folks excited yet? If you’re not, I have one more incentive; I will create a “No PS challenge” badge of honor that you will receive upon completing your one month. You will be authorized to proudly display it on your blog, it will be yours to do with whatever you want. You will have earned it! And if you decide to get it tattooed, please send me a picture. LOL

You still need more motivation… I’ll create a tab on my blog, it will be an “honor Roll” section where all the successful “awardees” will get their profile name, date of completion, social security number, bank information with the PIN and a link to their blog.

“Where do I sign?” ask the salty ones.

There is no signing in, just leave a comment if you are starting your “No PS challenge” and install web cams in every room of your home so that we can monitor you are not eating sweet.

When you complete the challenge SUCCESSFULLY, drop another comment and I’ll award you the badge. Isn’t it simple?

One more thing, like every worthy challenge there are rules:

1. If you eat any sweet at any time, you must re-start your day counter.

2. If you have a cookie or ice cream or anything sweet in your hand right now and you drop it in the garbage without taking one more bite or lick… you can start your counter TODAY.

3. I’ll let you decide what is in the sweet category as far as you are concerned. But it should include: Refined Sugar, or any other substitutes, fruit juice, and the worst one of them all: soft drinks.

4. Fruits are the exception, let’s enjoy more of those.

Even with my own turn around, I will be participating in the challenge, I will go the extra mile and not have coffee (because I put Stevia in it), I will not have Diet Coke, I will not eat sugar in any form unless I can’t avoid it (our yoghurt is really healthy but it contains some sugar). As you may have read in a previous post, I have 3 bags of chocolate waiting for me, they will be re-routed to the garbage can. 

You can’t avoid all sugars, it’s in everything, but you can select the food with the least poison in it. 

I’d like to thank Elaine for her comment yesterday with a link about sugar, and I’m adding another one from the CBC News The Fifth Estate.
Any one ready for the “No PS challenge”?


  1. I am in, I am in. I'm so excited, I can't wait to get my hand on the badge, only 29 days 23 hours and 59 minutes to go!

    I know who in their right mind post a comment to their own blog... but that would be assuming that I am of sound mind.

    1. Dear Richard, I just want to say you are the best Bhouhahaha

  2. Good luck to all participants!


    1. Thanks WWE, it's going to be a real sugar mountain to climb off :)

  3. I'll have to check my fridge and pantry and try to join in. I don't have a sweet tooth and I prefer fresh fruits for my sugar intake, so this should be easy, right? But I'm a commitment-phobe, Richard. LOL... Okay, I'll think about it, for sure!

    1. Any time you want to join Martha, there is plenty of badges for every one :)

  5. Good idea Richard ...... we do not need the excessive sugars and carbs that is all so easy to eat.

    Concentrate on whole fresh clean foods - stay away from processed - you may also find this article handy:
