Sugar seems to be the new tobacco, at least for founders in the tech industry. As more people proclaim the health benefits of a sugar-less diet, even traditional foodies are dropping their favourite ingredient. Last year, Ola Cabs co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal told ETPanache that he lost 11 kg while on a no-sugar diet. Snapdeal co-founder Kunal Bahl also took up a month-long no-sugar challenge to start living healthier.

The latest tech founder to jump on the bandwagon is Paytm’s Vijay Shekhar Sharma.

Sharma recently responded to a 100-day no sugar challenge from Rajesh Sawhney, cofounder of InnerChef, tweeting, “I am in! #NeededThis.”

Newly-minted managing director for Sequoia India, Rajan Anandan, also joined the challenge retweeting Sawhney’s original tweet with: “I am in! No ice cream is super hard for me...But let’s do this!”

Now 100 days is a long time. Nearbuy CEO Ankur Warikoo who has been on a no-sugar diet for six months, offered some friendly advice to those taking up the challenge: “All the best with the journey. Make water and fruits your best friends.”
