Zach, 6th grader, has sworn off sugar for a year!

Zach has not had a bite of sugar for over 6 months. Tim Tebow's biography inspired him to give sugar up for a year.  When Zach asked his parents if they would give him $100 if he swore off sugar for 12 months, they agreed.  Zach says the hardest part has been his peer pressure (6th grade…!) and Halloween.  His answer to how he handles it is, "It's not worth it."  He also knows how sugar can interfere with his goals, and , he has plans for that $100! Now he says he doesn't miss is at all. We'll see if he is singing this same tune in another 6 or 7 months.

Zachary is my grandson and I am so proud of him.  We had no sugar anything over the holidays. Instead we made beef jerky with his family's new dehydrator and Zach ate lots of his favorite nuts, cashews. Our meals and snacks were made from fresh foods; many recipes were his requests.  Thanks to Zachary we all had no sugar treats to resist.  Santa, included.  He was given a plate of hummus and carrots instead of cookies!

I'll give you a 12 month report.  Until then, maybe one of your kids would take on this No Sugar for  Year challenge.  Let me know if he or she does, please!
