Wishing You a Sweet & Happy New Year. Take the Great Worldwide Sugar-Out Challenge

New Year's resolutions ist2_2024989-new-year-s-resolutions-dieting To all of you wonderful readers,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you a very sweet, happy new year.

In addition, I invite you to listen to this brief new year's greetings and announcement to get your invite to take the Great Worldwide Sugar-Out Challenge along with thousands of people around the globe.

By this, I mean that as your New Year's resolution, you're encouraged to either kick sugar and other sweets entirely or at least cut back on your consumption of the stuff for the month of January. (And I'm also including refined carbs.) 

Nancy Appleton You can learn more about the Great Worldwide Sugar-Out Challenge on Friday, Jan. 16 at 12 noon Eastern on my Gab With the Gurus Radio Show, when I'm joined by several other sugar opponents and authors, including Dr. Nancy Appleton, author of Lick the Sugar Habit, and Dr. Scott Olson, author of the new book, Sugarettes

FYI, those of you you who've read my book SUGAR SHOCK! know that I issued a 21-day challenge in the book. In fact, in the past two years, I've heard heard from thousands of happy readers who took me up on it and found their life completely transformed by kicking sugar.

But I've never officially announced such a challenge even though it was on my list of things to do. Now that we're making New Year's resolutions, I have to admit that even though it was a priority item, I just never got around to completing this goal.  

Drscott Olson nd Because I always believe in giving people credit when it's due, I need to give thanks to Dr. Olson, a Colorado-based naturopath, whose challenge I chanced upon last week, thanks to Google alerts.

I was so impressed by Scott's passion and commitment to helping people give up sugar for a better life that I decided to join him in his challenge.

Even better, I invited him to join me in a special radio show with several of us sugar experts and a Worldwide Sugar-Out Challenge. (Collaboration is so much better than doing things on your own all the time!)

So join us! By the way, you don't even have to turn your back on sugar yet. Just join us on the Gab With The Gurus Radio Show on Friday, Jan. 16 at noon Eastern (or later, at your convenience) to learn why your life will be much better and healthier without sweets and refined carbs.
