No sugar.

Monday, May 27, 2013

Today is the first day of no sugar. I've made it to 9:07. No headache yet. I've gained a couple pounds again and I know it's mostly from sugar indulgence. Time to tackle the beast.

    I understand just what you are going through. A few years back I decided to give up Pepsi. I went cold turkey & had terrific head aches from both caffeine & sugar withdrawals. I had to drink Sprite for a while, until the caffeine headache went away & then a gave up the sprite. Now the only sugar I get is natural. It's great.

    I've cut way back on my sugar cutting out milk chocolate going to sugar substitute which I know isn't the best but maybe one day I'll be able to get that out of the diet. I've also switched to diet green tea (chilled) and diet soda and I've seen a weight loss of 7 lbs ... I don't weigh in until next Saturday officially but today the scale was down. I've had blood tests and I am NOT diabetic even though I'm over weight. Good luck on cutting out the sugar emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon The severity of your body's reaction to the removal of sugar will tell you just how addicted you are. My mom died of complications of diabetes so I've always limited sugar so when I removed it completely I felt little reaction. My daughter on the other hand who ate LOTS of sugar had symptoms that mirrored those of an alcoholic who gives up alcohol. Who knew sugar was like a drug?? Best wishes for small reactions - but if you get big ones you'll know how much you need to do this. emoticon
