Life is Different Without Sugar (Really??)

The last 2 week was a no sugar week. The no sugar week was when I (also other students in 6 grade) had to eat no sugar, completely no sugar, for a week. We did this no sugar week since sugar is very bad for you and cause you to death. We had to eat our meals healthier and our meal had to be sugar free. However, natural sugar from fruits were allowed. I was ok with the sugar week and it was an excellent experience to have.

Can’t really see but that’s the note I took.

To do the no sugar week, I had to cut my habit of eating the granola bar, which also had bunch of sugar in it–I found it out in the video we saw in class–and had to avoid cereal, ice cream for the reason that they had a lot of sugar in them. Our family didn’t really had to change anything. Only my mom had to remove all the sugary food and snacks from my house. I had to change at school too. I had to cut off my ice tea and lemon tea habit. I found out that those “teas” had enormous amount of factory processed and bad sugar in it. I had to have a healthy choice of eating. I had to eat more green leaf vegetables like cabbage and spinach to consume more vitamin C and other good nutrients.

I learnt that even thought you don’t directly eat sugar like eating chocolate and candy everyday, you could get sugar from other places. You could get sugar from the flavored yogurt, which everyone enjoys everyday, and you could also get sugar from ice tea and lemon tea you drink at school. You need to be careful; even it says 100% no sugar, look for the disguised sugar, sugar is also known as fructose, glucose, lactose, sucrose and thousands more. In this no sugar week, I learnt a lot of useful information.
