No Sugars, No Bad Carbs| 10 Day Challenge

If you haven’t seen yet, Jennifer Lopez has created a ‘snatched body’ through exercise and of course the no carb, no sugar challenge.

I refrain from using the word diet because this is not a diet. This is a challenge to your mind and body. You are challenging your mind to eat better and you are challenging your body to break down and process valuable nutrients for these ten days.

I like to think of it as a cleanse to your mind and body because what you eat also affects your mood and how you think.

I will begin this challenge in conjunction to exercising and update this post with my results.

What to eat

  • Meat (Fish, limit fried foods)
  • Eggs
  • Beans
  • Vegetables
  • Nuts/ Seeds
  • Whole grains
  • Fruit (apples, strawberries, pears, berries contain natural sugars)
  • Brown rice
  • Low fat milk/ Soy milk
  • Yogurt
  • Oatmeal
  • Drink lots of water

What not to eat

  • Sugary goodness (refined sugars including ice cream, donuts, candy)
  • Soda (fizzy drinks)
  • Bread
  • Processed foods
  • White rice
  • White flour
  • Limit sodium
  • Alcohol

Your body needs carbs to fuel your brain. Good carbohydrates replenish nutrients, vitamins, minerals and more that your body converts to energy.

Bad carbs on the other hand, contribute no nutritional value for your body.

Remember, it’s only 10 days. Try it!

The countdown starts now!
