Your Challenge this week is to go Sugar-Free for THREE days!

Naturally-occurring sugar (like in fruit) is fair game, but hands off the rest of the sweet stuff for 72 hours! "Read your labels and avoid added sugars," Dr. Taz says. "[You'll want to] watch for hidden sugars in protein bars, protein shakes, and 'healthy' gluten-free snacks."
