Over the past couple of weeks, I have tried to cut down the sugar I consume. It all started when I ran out of sugar and decided to try live without it for a little. I've stopped adding sugar to my tea and coffee and don't keep sugar in my apartment anymore. I've also realized that I don't crave sweet stuff that much anymore. I still end up having tons of sugar in some of the food I eat though (like chocolate milk and OJ) and i want to cut that out too.
Anyway, the other day I came across this video which explained why we crave sugar really well. This is the link - www.upworthy.com/is-suga
I've been reading about the 17 day diet and think I might give it a try. My sugar and carb portions are a lot higher than they should be and that diet seems to be designed to help with that. I've also read that a low glycemic diet is good for those with PCOS and I think the 17 day diet would help with that. I do plan to monitor my calories on the diet and make sure I get 1200-1500 cal/day.
Exercise update - that past few days have been very busy and I haven't had a chance to exercise much. Anyway, I'm planning to continue with my week 3 schedule of Hip Hop Abs tomorrow.
