A Year Without Sugar

It’s been 2 months since I bet Matthew Flinders $10,000 that I wouldn’t eat sugar for a year. Here, he and I talk about it. It’s just NO BIG DEAL! (Kristin is behind the camera, if you’re wondering why I’m assuring her that I still love her even though she ate treats all through Texas and Mexico.) I want a REAL challenge! One idea: we ban all sweeteners, for a year. Second idea: Dr. Tom Lodi and I made a pledge to go to Panama and do a 42-day water fast. (When he can get away from his practice and I can get away from four minors I happen to be raising by myself. AS IF!) As he says, “Your first 50 years are free. You have the EARN the next 50!” I’m learning how to earn them, and that’s why YOU’RE here, to earn yours too! Let’s do it together!

  1. Congratulations to both of you, Robyn and Matthew. You just reminded me how easy it has been (knock on wood) this time. A few months ago I started my raw food journey and till now haven’t thought much abt it. I can’t say I’ve been perfect because there were times in a foggy moment that I did have something with sugar. I think that it has been easier this time because I have added fruit. I never gave myself permission to eat fruit before. It is a learning process to understand healthy sugars from non healthy sugars. I am a Green Smoothie Girl follower and so far have lost 25 lbs. Many ills have got better. Thank you so much. Lynn

  2. You too are so cute! i love the way you approach living the “natural health way” as easy and casual. You make it realistic for all of us to change……1 healthy step at a time 🙂

  3. I’m so grateful for your work, Robyn!

    As my clients incorporate smoothies into their diets and slooowly eliminate sugar…voila! Improvement!!! I refer all my clients to your sites here and on YouTube. Thank You!!!

    Also for any one interested… at the Good Earth they have organic coconut milk on sale $1.29 a can. My cheat! Strawberry ice cream. Coconut milk, frozen strawberries and stevia, mmmmm. 🙂

  4.

  5. If you are going to make a green smoothie , one of the biggest mistakes people do is add bananas or apples , that turns to sugar immediatly in your stomach . Its best to add dark fruits for the antioxidants and to thicken it with Chia seeds. Send me a text and I will send you a recipe or go on my website.
