Sharing Is Oh So Sweet!

Day8Welcome to Day #8 of PureFormulas’ Sugar Crush Challenge: 30 days of tips, recipes and tools to help you cut down on sugar and crush those cravings!

Like every challenge, getting family and friends on board will not only help you get the support you need, but it will also make it that much more fun!

Change can be hard, and crushing sugar can be made a lot easier without constant temptation from others wanting you to share the sugar points on the fudge cheesecake with them. You might not even have been in the mood for that sweet overload, yet when temptation crosses your path, you will be more likely to cave.

So here is what I propose: get everyone on board!

However, to achieve this you have to make it fun. Remember, you might be ready for this change, but you can’t expect everyone else to be on the same page too. Here are some ideas:


Getting the kids on board: Make it fun, mysterious, and messy!

Have you ever met a kid that did not like to get messy? Me neither. Get them involved in the cooking process. That way, next time you want them to try a spinach cookie that was naturally sweetened with bananas that they mashed themselves, they will be more likely to enjoy the result of their hard work.

Playing games is always a good way to go too! Coming from someone who used to love playing clue, I am a fan of mysteries…So let’s see if you can find the snack with the least amount of hidden added sugars.


Getting your partner on board: There is no “I” in team

When it comes to your partner, it’s never a good idea to make decisions on your own and nag them to do as you wish. Getting your significant other as involved as you are and allowing them to make decisions equally may be just be the way to win them over to the Sugar Crush team! Give a little and take a little, so let the negotiations begin!


Getting the parents on board: Show them the money!…or just the facts.

This is a toughie! Persuading parents to do something is a talent on its own. I get it, you raised us, but maybe we are onto something here. Although convincing parents can be compared to a student trying to tell an algebra professor that their equation is incorrect, there’s something you can do. Show them the facts! Tell them all that you’ve learned from the first 7 days of the challenge.


Getting your friends on board: The duo method

For the fellas – “My horse is bigger than your horse” method

It seems that the best way to keep the fellas motivated, especially for a period of 30 days, might just be starting a fun and friendly competition. “I dare you to take the sugar challenge. Will you make it past day one?”

For the ladies –  “You will not believe the wonders this new ‘diet’ is doing for me” method

Although I cringe every time I hear the word, the ladies are drawn to the “new diet” like hummingbirds are attracted to flowers. Let them in on your secret ladies!

Invite your friends and family and lure them into the Sugar Crush Team. Because sharing is Oh so sweet!
