Weeks 17-20


Replace With

Refined White Sugar
Artificial Sweeteners

(Sugar feeds cancer cells and bad bacteria in our bodies. Sugar is poisonous and harmful to us. Artificial sweeteners are even worse.)

This was the most challenging for me to ditch – but I took my time with it and found healthy substitutes to REPLACE –not take way – my favorite things.

For example…craving a warm cookie? Just make a little bowl of oatmeal and mix in a few dark chocolate or cacao pieces with some walnuts and enjoy!

In recipes, substitute one of the healthy options listed to the right for all refined sugars – including brown

Stevia = not good for baking but good for cold/other warm uses such as in tea

Raw Honey

Coconut Sugar

Maple Syrup
