The entire 6th grade was doing a sugar-free week challenge. We were doing this so that we can see how sugar impacts our life it was pretty hard to find something that did not have sugar. I had to change a lot of things because I was really used to sugar and a lot of things had sugar we were not even allowed to have honey. I just avoided everything that had sugar and stuck to fruits and no sugar things.
I think that I should lower the amount of sugar I eat. This week has really taught me how bad sugar is for your body. I am going to lower the amount of sugar I eat by checking the labels of food before we buy them because sugar has a lot of different names. My entire family loves to eat sugar I think I should try to help them to reduce how much they are eating. I think that I should buy things that have less sugar than other for example instead of getting a muffin I would get watermelon it still has sugar but it is natural sugar so it is not bad for your health.
I think that I will still eat sugar but I must still balance it out with healthy meals and my sports.
