The Great Worldwide Sugar-Out Challenge also features a 24-hour hour twitfest, where frequent, inspirational, informational tweets will be sent out from Twitter is a popular, fast-growing, microblogging program, where people send out messages of up to 140 characters.
This is the first time that a worldwide event has been held to draw attention to the massive amounts of sugar that the typical person consumes, which is about 170 pounds a year or one cup a day for the average American and the same for someone living overseas.
The Great Worldwide Sugar-Out Challenge is also the first time authors of “competing” sugar books have banded together to invite people worldwide to learn the sour sugar facts and to urge them to take the challenge of cutting back on sugar or removing it entirely for at least one day.
“Most people don’t realize that they’re eating or drinking huge doses of sugar over the course of a day whenever they have packaged or processed foods,” says “Sugar Liberator” and Sugar-Out Challenge co-coordinator Connie Bennett, C.H.H.C., author of SUGAR SHOCK!, a certified health counselor, speaker and life coach.
“Of course, you’re getting sugar and other sweeteners from candy bars, soda and cookies, but you’re also getting a lot from less obvious sources like yogurt, whole grain cereal, peanut butter, salad dressings and mayonnaise,” continues Bennett, a journalist, who, before kicking sugar in 1998, used to “need” frequent sugar “fixes” to meet article deadlines.
