I love tamales. I made a choice to have 2 of them, after checking to make sure no sugar was in the ingredients. I still hold true to the "No sugar" So I decided in order to have some Holiday treats, and still feel pretty safe, didn't turn out that way. I also added sugar free candy in the mix One little bag has 5 candies, no sugar mind you but there is the Aspartame which I think is just as deadly as sugar is.
I was so sick this morning 4 am and all I tasted was those tamales and that sugar free candy. Needless to say, it will never happen again. I can't even imagine a tamale or one of these sugar free treats entering my life again.
The hard part. I know I cannot keep eating as drastically as I do, without introducing some things back in when I reach my goal. But now not sure what to do, without these drastic results. Has this happened to anyone else, after adopting this lifestyle? And what did you do to ease into maybe adding some things back, without it throwing your system into chaos like I did. The sugar free candy is definitely out. I am sure the Aspartame which I have not had since March 20th 2013 had a great deal to do with it. Now that I think about it the only Aspartame I had anything to do with was with Crystal light. And I drank very little of it. I was never a soda drinker, regular or diet. But it like sugar was not in my system for these past 9 months.
I haven't had a bread product and I know that the Tamale is not bread. It did have hot peppers which probably fueled the blow up of my system.
Anyway let me know what you did and didn't do to make it right.
