Over the past 3 weeks, I have drastically reduced my added sugar intake to almost nothing. Although I’ve allowed myself a maximum of 1 tablespoon per day of specific all-natural sweeteners that I, and only I, add to my food, I’ve cut out all other sources of added sugars from my diet. As a current victim of candida yeast overgrowth and psoriasis (which I believe to be a symptom of my candida), I’ve been experimenting with a 30-Day No Sugar Challenge with the high hopes of finally vanquishing these unwelcome hitchhikers. The results haven’t been exactly what I hoped for, but they still have been interesting. See below for the full rules of my Challenge.
Read on for updates about my progress and experience so far. Be sure to check out my first and second blog posts chronicling this journey.
