Our ambassadors are the heartbeat of the organization and some of the fiercest ladies I know! As we prepare for our first BGR! U course with registered dietitian Danielle Omar and I started thinking about foods I needed a clean break from. The list wasn't hard to come up with and I realized I have a lot of work to do! This week, I asked our ambassadors:
Needless to say their feedback made me feel better! I wasn't the only one that had food issues! LOL After reading through their comments, I want to hear what foods YOU need a clean break from! Need some help? Sign up for our BGR! U "21-Day Clean Eating Challenge" that will cleanse your body of processed foods, sugar, gluten, dairy and other foods that keep you from feeling your best.

"Sugar is my last demon and the one I'm battling the hardest. I like kids candy, offer me Smarties or some Red Hots and I'll hop right in the van *LOL* - Iris Owens, Black Girls RUN! Los Angeles
"The chip! Potato chips, corn chips, the dorito chips, veggie chips, and chips of beef (oh sorry). You get it. My office gives us free chips and sodas. So, I feel like the chips are a part of my benefits package. It adds $5.00 a day to my income. #dontjudgeme" - Tanya Friends, Black Girls RUN! Milwaukee
"There isn't anything that I want an absolute break from. I believe moderation is the key. But the thing I struggle with having moderation with is once I have something sweet I want more and more
And more. I kicked the too much cheese habit about a year ago and it was so gradual that when it hit me I said to myself, "you actually did it" - Rebecca Andrews, Black Girls RUN! Los Angeles
"Nuts are good, but not when I can eat 1 pound of unsalted pistachios in a day. I pay about $10 for a bag and in 1-1/2 days it's finished. I then go buy another bag. When I travel, I take enough to last me for my trip because I cannot always find unsalted pistachios. I eat them any time of the day. I also still eat my regular meals. I need intervention." - Phyllis Johnson, Black Girls RUN! Tampa
"Wings and rice . I eat about 8 to 10 unbreaded wings when I should eat only 6 and I love rice." - Trinnett King, Black Girls RUN! Jacksonville
