My enemy is sweet, and I am bitter - I'm banning 'all' sugars from my diet.
Tuesday, September 03, 2013
So after initially loosing quite a bit of weight, I put most of it back on again. It was a set back, but there is always tomorrow they say to make a change. Well to keep myself interested, I've decided on a different battle plan.
I will ban sugar.
Sugar is added to almost every type of food available, even that which doesn't need it. Cereal, soups, ketchup, yoghurt, and bread. I've decided to use myself as a test bunny and see what happens if I go a month avoided most products with added sugar of any kind. The exception will be that which has sugar naturally, such as fruit.
I'll continue to eat what I always eat, which is pretty healthy and diverse, just the version without added sugar. I'm among those people who annoyingly keep saying they shouldn't be as big as they are based on their diet, who moans that they really don't eat that much to start with and their thinner friends eats more than them.
Well, I want to see if it'd down to the amount of fructose I consume without thinking, that detoxing it from my system will be more effective than counting calories. Now, if I have to make my own, bread, sauces, soups and dinners from scratch, I probably will be consuming lower calories anyway.
I want to see how my brain and body will react when the only sugar it is allowed, comes in the form of fruit. I won't even drink juice unless I squeeze it myself. I want to see what cravings I get and if my weight-loss gets quicker.
I'll keep a blog of my progress. Wish me luck.
