Welcome to the Second Sugar-Free Challenge Homepage!
I had a great time with our first sugar-free challenge, and by popular request, I will be hosting another. We had many participants in June, and I hope we have many more this time!
Here’s the Challenge:
“Don’t eat any sugar for 10 days. This includes honey, molasses, syrups, artificial sweeteners (like Splenda), sugar alcohols (like maltitol or xylitol), and no refined sugar.”
The challenge will start on November 3rd and end on November 12th.
How to Join the Challenge:
Simply leave a comment below to join the challenge. After signing on-there is no turning back! Just kidding, if you wish to be removed for some reason, email me.
I would love for you all to spread the word and join the challenge! During the challenge, it would be great for you to post your sugar-free eats so that you can inspire others. I will be featuring your sugar-free eats and recipes during the challenge, too. Here’s a badge you can add to your site to help promote this:

Questions? Comments? Concerns?
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you ever need any help, don’t hesitate to ask. I am creating this challenge so that we will have a big sugar-free support group! If you would like to send me your story on how being sugar-free helped you, I would love to publish it! Any other ideas you have? I’d love to hear!
Frequently Asked Challenge Questions:
Are you allowed to eat fruit during the challenge?
Yes, you are allowed to eat fruit. Try not to overdo it, though (as in, don’t eat 15 bananas a day!). Other than that, I believe the naturally occurring sugars found in fruit are perfectly healthy in small amounts. Fruit contains plenty of antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins to help your body.
Is stevia allowed during the challenge?
Since stevia is considered a sugar-substitute, I am not allowing it in the challenge. This makes the challenge, well, more challenging! Challenging is fun! If you think that you absolutely cannot complete the challenge without stevia, then feel free to use it.
Is alcohol allowed during the challenge?
Yes, as long as it isn’t a “mixed” alcoholic beverage like margaritas, because they have added sugar. Mixed alcoholic drinks that use only fruit juice and no added sugar are accepted. Plain wine, beer, etc. are allowed.
