Do you think you could go an entire year with sugar? Eve O. Schaub and her family did. The effects were greater than they predicted, Yahoo! reports.
Schaub came up with the idea when she learned about the negative effects sugar has on the body. The challenge was to only eat foods with no added, unnatural sugar or sweeter for a year, with the exception of one sweet a month.
During the year Schaub began to feel more energetic than ever before – she and her children were sick less, and her monthly sweet wasn’t as enjoyable as before.
