alrighty I'm doing this as of yesterday.
only drink water, milk, coffee and 100% juice.

NO MORE: soda, processed tea, juice mixes, corn syrup, honey, concentrated products or alcohol.

no cheating when you're alone =)
and no "cheat days"

so who would go in on this with me?
the point is to cut a lot of sugar/fat. and just dead weight caused from indulging.

    Sure! I think its a great idea. I actually don't think it's extreme. If we do just that, we are making a great contribution to our health.

    I tend to avoid those things anyway. My indulgences run to fat/salt things like cheese. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, so I won't find this onerous.

    Sign me up :salute:

    ETA I'm assuming plain tea, like Lipton is OK?
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    yea I guess that tea is ok. I'm just trying to stay as natural as possible with 0% additives.

    I just finished a month of only drinking water and japanese green tea. I guess I'm a tad more extreme.

    I do this once a year to prove to myself that I'm not an alcoholic :occasion5:.

    I don't miss wine (that much) but I miss coffee every day all month!

    I usually loose 4 kilos, but they do sneak back on.

    Hmm.. this is all I drink anyway, with the addition of fresh-brewed unsweetened tea. I'm in! :)

    Chocolate or vanilla soy milk keeps me out, right?
  • CuzzoercCuzzoerc Registered Users Posts: 164
    Hey Ninja, you can be in sure.

    I won't have any soy milk cause of the estrogen in it.

    I'm male, so estrogen not so good for me
    you curly ladies have at the soy.

    I'm really trying to lose these pesky 3lbs off my lower abs. my 4 pack is good but these last bottom 2 are really a lot of work.

    my work outs are real solid every week, I'm just trying to eliminate a bunch of sugar.

    I don't find this extreme at all ..I only drink water, 100% pure orange juice, milk and a recovery drink lol

    Today was the day that I put everything in perspective!
    I fell asleep, when I woke up, everything changed.*--

    I know this thread is a month old but I wonder how things turned out for all of you?

    I want to do this starting tomorrow. I don't drink coffee often, and when I do I need some sugar in it, so I'll be skipping coffee as well. So for me it's water, milk, tea (w/o adding sugar/milk) and 100% juice...

    Seems like a really nice challenge. I hope I'll remember when I'm at work, lol.
