21 Day Sugar Detox Complete

Sunday, January 19, 2014

I found this challenge much easier than the last 21 day challenge I followed. At the end of the last one, all I could think about was cookies and cake. I ended up eating both and way too much of each. I ended up craving it for three weeks straight. It was all I could think about. Sugar is addicting, right? Yeah, I really think so.

This time I feel great! I did have some cravings, but found that green apples with cinnamon did the trick. I really wanted to see if I could eliminate the cravings for good. I really wanted to see what my body felt like without sugar.

I think I have finally found an eating plan I can stick with. There are plenty of options for each meal and snacks. I have found favorites so of course I repeat those:) I often find with my favorites, I get burned out eating them day after day. So far going strong:)

Looking forward to a morning run and getting the pups out this afternoon!
Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

    Good on you!!

    Sugar is evil...plain and simple. Peanut butter is my downfall....but going for the naturally ground stuff keeps the sugars low. I've also re-kindled my love for butternut squash this winter.....roasted in the oven with olive oil, salt & pepper....DOUBLE YUM!!

    YAY, way to go. I have avoided sugar as much as possible for 6 months. Now that I'm at goal weight, I am starting to add my chocolate covered almonds back into my daily calories with 7 = 107 calories. In the old days, I would grab a handful, but that was my OLD life which is gone, gone, gone. I like my new life at -30 lbs.
