Join the Fed Up Challenge
What is it???
After the launching of the movie Fed Up, 65,000 people joined the Fed Up Team for a 10-day challenge to go completely sugar free!
They started by cutting sodas and other sweetened beverages and foods that have added sugars. They ate real, fresh, whole foods and lay off all products that contain added sugar including:
- All liquids sugars
- Bottled tea
- Fruit juice
- Sports drink
- All artificial sugars and sugar substitutes
It sounds tough because it is tough, but we will pull each other through and end up feeling so much better!
Artificial sweeteners slow your metabolism and make you crave and eat more food. Also, be aware of foods that may have hidden sugars, like yogurt, canned foods, spaghetti sauce, and ketchup.
Are you up for the challenge????

A 20-ounce bottle of soda contains the equivalent of approximately 17 teaspoons of sugar.
One soda a day increases a child's chance of obesity by 60%.
Kids watch an average of 4,000 food related ads every year, which is 10/day.
In 2015, Americans consumed an average of 170 pounds of sugar in a year.
There is overwhelming evidence of the link between obesity and the consumption of sweetened beverages, such as soft drinks, energy drinks, sweet teas, and sports drinks.
In the United States, it is estimated that 93 million Americans are affected by obesity.
Individuals who drink one or two sugar-sweetened beverages per day have a 26% higher risk for developing Type II Diabetes.
More than 9 million adolescents (children and teens 6-19 years old) are considered overweight.
It will take a person that weighs 110 pounds 75 minutes of bike riding to burn off the calories in one 20 ounce bottle of soda.
