I feel disgusting. Starting last year, I worked at a place that always had sugary, processed garbage in the copier room. I couldn't completely avoid the copier room because I had to make copies, so I gave in to temptation all the time. I never had a problem with sugar before that. Over the last 10 months, I've become addicted to sugar. Thankfully, I quit that job, but I'm still left with this sugar addiction. I feel so fat and gross
I just watched the documentary "Fed Up," which claims that in the late 70's, when food manufacturers made everything no- or low-fat, they replaced the fat with sugar to make their product palatable and addictive. The film has its shortcomings, but I was still left thinking about how much garbage I've eaten over the past year. I have to change NOW. Otherwise, I will keep gaining weight - particularly belly fat - and suffer dozens of physical and emotional drawbacks. I can hardly believe I let myself get this far off my desired path. I'm quitting sugar cold turkey, except for the sugar naturally found in whole fresh fruit. Period.
