Battle Plan for Future Sugar Intake --Final Sweet Tooth Blog

Friday, April 06, 2012

Mom brought over multi-grain rolls tonight. They were better than cake, fresh out of the oven. I had one with butter. It was Really Good!

Here is my plan going forward with sugar:

I hope to limit my sugar intake to once a week. I hope to not stock sugary baked goods in my house on a regular basis, but have enough flexibility to enjoy dessert at birthdays and on one day of the holidays. If I'm cooking, that dessert during a holiday can be fruit, and doesn't need to be a baked good.

Since I've discovered this month that two days in a row of sugar brings back cravings, while one day isolated doesn't, I think it's important to remember that during the holidays and other times. My body feels better without continuous sugar intake. I believe that the first 8 pounds came off as easily as they did because my body doesn't really want that sugar anyway, and is happier because I went cold turkey on sugar right up front.

    Sugar is a major contributer to weight gain and other health issues. It is hard to keep the sugar in check, but I think that is key in this journey of weight loss.
    I like the plan of limiting to once a week. It shouldn't be a daily staple for anyone.
