Keep an eye on the hidden sugars
Have sugar free sweets if I want something sweet if I keep them away from DH he eats the lot if he sees them.
Moderate my sugar intake with things like chocolate. In other words if I really want some chocolate I get a small amount like a kitkat the one with two fingers not the four.
Desserts are now for Sunday only I use Greek yogurt and fruit during the week if I must have a dessert otherwise it is a apple or other fruit after a meal.
I have learnt I can say No to sweet things and even when DH buys chocolate I have not bought any for myself. That for me is a big step as I would often get some when he bought it.
Reading label's has shown me just how much sugar is added to foods DH loves tinned carrots and yes they have added sugar as well. I cooked fresh carrots added real freshly squeezed orange juice from a real orange not a carton to the water and a scant teaspoon of honey to help glaze them. DH tried them and liked it so tinned carrots are off the shopping list.
I have also learnt that when I go out for a meal I can stick to having fresh fruit salad rather than gooey cakes.
Will I have cake? of course I will but now I can plan for it and have it a real treat on special occasions.
Easter has been and gone and I did have some chocolate but no where near what I used to have so I have tamed my sweet tooth. It is a work in progress but I am winning the battle.
