Day One without sugar.
but I did only eat a very nominal amount. Very. I had a bowl of Cheerios, which has about a gram of sugar, a few baby banana cookies which each have about a gram and some Cool Whip Free that has that high fructose corn syrup nonsense in it even though it only has 15 calories. I wanted to go totally cold turkey, but that's pretty close. I did have 2 Coke Zeros, which I also wanted to nix but I'm not sure I can do sugar and crack at the same time.
This latest book I'm reading called Sugar Shock is very interesting and informative. I will be highly recommending it to everyone, so get your arsenal of defense ready if you don't want to be swayed.
I wish I owned the book (it's a library book) because I want to mark it, highlight it, dog ear it... I have to keep reminding myself that it will get easier the longer I abstain from the villainous sugar in all its forms. I have to wait and allow my body to detox. Right now my body, my blood, my brain screams for the white stuff, but it will abate in time. I just need to hang in there and be patient. One of the hard parts is figuring out what to eat- since I'm avoiding sugar in all of it's forms, as an ingredient in any product as well as white flour and it as an ingredient it eliminates a lot of things. I have to think protein, and I've never been especially drawn to protein. i don't do well hungry so I better find some things to eat. That's going to mean eliminating most packaged foods and a lot of planning on my part.
Day One down.
