Take the Change One Challenge!
Experience shows that those who make the biggest changes, see the greatest results. The Change One Challenge helps you to make a really big change to just one thing – your consumption of added sugars.
Eliminating your consumption of added sugars is your focus, so don’t worry about counting calories. Just make sure you don’t fill the calorie gap you’re creating by increasing your overall food consumption. Switching to a diet free of added sugars (including limiting juice intake but not whole fruits) is hard for many people to get used to, because it’s really an acquired taste. Our sense of sweetness changes with our diet, so it will take time for your sense of taste to change. But don’t try to bridge the gap with artificial sweeteners because that will only maintain your sweet-tooth.
Does looking in the mirror recently make you feel a little out-of-shape? It probably has a lot to do with portion distortion. Over the past 20 years portion sizes in America have increased by more than 100% and today two-thirds of our population is now overweight. Competition among restaurants, food labels, big brand stores and factory farms has caused this portion inflation, with the result that a typical plate of spaghetti with meatballs has expanded from that of a good meal (around 550 calories) to almost a whole day’s worth of eating (1200 calories)!
We wanted to let everyone know that we have revamped the 7 Tigers ‘TV’ section. The section now groups the videos a little better. We will be adding new videos all the time from the Taekwondo Today Television show that we air weekly, some basic instructional videos that we produce for our site as well as a few other sites, and much more.

We would like to congratulate everyone who tested this afternoon. You all did a fantastic job.
We had students from the main school testing for Brown Belt and students from the Forest Lakes school who tested for Blue, Green, and Yellow Belt.
Again great job everyone.
