Kicking the Sugar Habit - 30 Days with Bhu Foods
All packed for my east coast trip, thanks to Bhu Foods!
I love sugar.

The chocolatier, the better. I've made no qualms and secrets about it over the years. When they go salty, I go sweet. I'm not gonna sit up here and act like it's not a problem, though.

In the totality of my fitness journey, taming my sweet tooth has been the most difficult part of the ride. Meal prep? No problem. Lift heavy weights? My pleasure. Cardio? Ehhhh....(I'll still do it though).

But give up the sweet stuff? Nah, sprinkle me mayne.

Up until this point, I've straight played myself with the "everything in moderation" mantra - which basically means walk the straight and narrow Monday thru Thursday, and go off the rails all weekend long.

Problematic, for sure.

That cycle has run it's course, and I've gotten on my own nerves enough to the point where I'm ready to do something about it. I've decided that if I'm really serious about reaching my 2018 goals, I best get my butt into gear. I mean shoot, it's almost July already. (Where did the time go?) Not to mention, the negative impact on my skin and psoriasis.

That's why I'm teaming up with Bhu (pronounced "boo") Foods to give myself 30 days to get this sugar habit in check. Bhu Foods is a fit food company based out of San Diego, California and prides themselves on creating alternatives to sugar-laden snacks that are lower carb, high fiber, keto friendly, paleo, vegan, etc.

A wise rapper once said, "If you stay ready, you ain't got to get ready."
With all their goodies having 0-1g of sugar per serving, they're already winning in my book. Even more impressive is the amount of fiber in these bars, the amped up protein, and lower carbs. I'm not much into keto, vegan, or paleo eating, but if you are - then you definitely need to get up on Bhu Foods. 

Starting today (yes, in the middle of the week while I'm outta town 'cause I ain't got time to wait for another Monday to roll around), I'm committing to taming my sweet tooth within 30 days, with the help of Bhu. My goal is simple - any time I crave a cookie, chocolate bar, cupcake, etc, I'm reaching for a Bhu Foods snack. For the next month, I'll be munching on:

(Oh, and you can totally find Bhu goodies at Vitamin Shoppe!)

I'm expecting great things to come of this experience - and hopefully some progress that helps me move the needle toward my goals. At the end of 30 days, I'll be checking back in here on the blog. But in the meantime, you can follow me on Instagram @maneobjective and @30daysofdope to keep up with my posts and Instastories along this sugar-busting challenge and my journey overall!

  1. Good luck! I did this a couple of years ago - the first two weeks were a complete nightmare, mentally and physically. Pushing through, though, set me up for the rest of the year and totally helped me revamp the way I looked at food as well as demolishing that 4pm hangry craving.
    (If you're reading this, hoping to give it a try, and you're not in the US, I would take a look at Iquitsugar by Sarah Wilson - there are some good ideas and recipes there!)
