Now I know this observation is not new, but it amazes me each time I prove it. It is sad that I have to KEEP proving it to myself, but how good that it still works even after many attempts. Ready for my revelation? Here it is:
Eating less sugary snacks = less craving for said snacks, over time.
I'm trying to give up sugary snacks. It's like breaking an addiction alright. I 'hung out' for the first week, wanting my sugary things. every day This week? I tried a couple of bites of pie and it tasted so sweet, I really didn't want any more than I had. So now I am not missing those snacks a great deal.
The trap is in fooling myself that I can 'handle' having sugary snacks around me already. I need to keep banning them from my space for awhile yet. It would be super easy to get off the 'less is more' sugar train so early in the piece. Yes, the choice of words was deliberate. Falling off something sounds like an accident. Getting off is far more an act of will. I choose to call it what it is for me. It would be my choice to 'get off' the 'less is more' sugar train.
So Whoo! Whoo! I'm going to keep on riding that train!
