    Diet Rules

    The following table details the DIET RULES for the ’28-Days Later’ challenge.

    Rule Details
    No Sugar This means no sweeteners of ANY kind – natural or artificial. It means no maple syrup, honey, agave nectar, coconut sugar, Splenda, Equal, Nutrasweet, xylitol, stevia, etc. Read your food lables, because companies sneak sugar into products in ways you might not recognize.  You may EAT fruit but you cannot use fruit juice/cook with fruit as it is then acting as a sweetener.
    No Bread or Pasta. No Bread.  No crackers, mountain bread, Turkish Bread, Foccacia’s, wraps, cracker bread, cracker biscuits…you get the idea.  No bread or bread substitutes at all.  Likewise, no pasta means NO PASTA.
    No Alcohol No alcohol.  NONE.  Not even for cooking.
