I am in for the biggest fight of my dieting life

Giving up and not giving in to sugar.

I have managed to work with my other changes in lifestye, in order

Clean eater

Now, I have to fight the sugar monster, and it's going to be very hard, since I am a sugarholic.

And look what time of the year it is, even bigger fight.

I was watching Dr. Oz yesterday, and he stated we need no more than 2 grams of sugar in anything we eat, and it should not be amongst the first 5 ingreds. Sugar is the fat, because excessive amounts turn into fat, and the body stores them. Fat is not the evil thing we think it is, we do need some in our body everyday.

And honestly? I do not know any Vegans in my little town. How do they get through Thanksgiving, and Christmas?

    I was just thinking about all the temptations with the holidays coming. Especially when the kids want to make the traditional cutout cookies that we do every year! Maybe I'll put duct tape across my mouth!

    Alicia, ever since I found out that oreos are Vegan, it's been a fight! I just wish I had more choices. Oreos are everywhere!

    good luck, the sugar monster is evil but emoticon

    i was a sweets fanatic but i've given up most of the sugar that i used to eat. sadly, i'm sure i eat more than 2 grams of sugar alone in a serving of plain greek yogurt or a glass of nonfat milk!

    Just be happy it's fairly difficult to find vegan candy/cookies/treats in a small town. ;)
