I 've had a major revelation and "AHA!" moment. I believe I am hooked on sugar. I know I'm hooked on food, sugar seems to "do me in" each and every time I try to change my eating habits. Sugar seems to be the hardest addiction to break! Today is my 2nd day of truly making a conscious effort to remove sugar from my diet. It has not been easy, but I already feel better. I am focusing on not eating anything "white"- like white bread, white rice,etc. and have worked on eating brown rice and whole grain breads. Quite a few years ago I removed these foods from my diet and had great weight loss results, so I will see where this takes me. Once I taste the sugar, it draws me back in. I know this will not be perfect, but I will do my best and keep trying to put one foot in front of the other. Anyone out there cut sugar out of their diets? What results have you had? Open to any feedback and tips if you have any!
