Day three no sugar in my tea, coffee or other foods

Monday, January 16, 2012

Friday I decided I needed to cut out the sugar I was using in my foods. Between coffee, tea and oatmeal I was averaging about 3 spoonfuls each food and its excessive. I noticed it on my food tracker I was wracking up like over 21 spoonfuls a day. I know sugar is not good for me. I like my coffee black but sweet and I really LOVE my coffee. If I don't have a good cup in the morning my whole day is off. I love a cup of coffee at night or a cup of tea. So Friday I picked up a small box of Stevia in the raw. Its OK. Its not as sweet as Splenda, but I just don't like it. So I piked up a bottle of Agave Sunday and all is right with my coffee again!
Stevia or Splenda will do but Agave is the best!

So I have been white granulated sugar free since Friday after noon. TOM showed up Saturday morning, hence the craving for Burger King Friday. Between that and the head cold, exercise motivation has been nil.
I give myself this last day then back to my 4-5 mile walking!

    Where do you find Agave in the grocery store?

I like honey in tea, I prefer hot tea to cold and will drink sugarless cold tea. I like Truvia, I think it has sugar in it.

    I have tried stevia but not agave. I'll have to try some. I gave up and or limited my intake of sugar and white foods years ago.
You seem to be on the right track , much success to you on your weight loss journey.

  I stopped putting sugar and cream in my coffee years ago and now I drink it black with no sweatener. I make it light so it's not so bitter. It saves so much many calories by drinking it black.

  Why not try a little honey in your coffee or tea..maybe 1/2 teaspoon.
