Week 4 Challenge: Reduce sodas, fruit drinks and other sugary drinks by half. Use half the amount of sugar and oils in recipes. Begin serving water instead of juice or soda with family meals, 30 to 60 minutes before or two hours after meals.
Exercise: Take 15-20 minutes digestives walks as a family after each meal (at least after dinner). If it is raining or too cold outside, you can walk around inside your home. Ask the youngest child to lead the “march” and make it fun. If you have invited friends or family over for lunch of dinner, tell them to bring their walking shoes. Re-test the family to see how many steps you each can climb, or how far you can quickly walk without getting short of breath. Record your results and compare them to Week 1.
