sugar challenge

Thursday, June 29, 2017

I will be on the watch for my craving for carob chips, which are one of few foods remaining in my larder that are sweet-tooth friendly

    yeah i sugar binged thru the holiday. at one point a day or two ago, i was questioning my total lack of sugar-free integrity. why am i doing this with sugar (it was a mass of cookies, gingerbread, sugar, etc)?

    i decided i was still getting the sugar endorphins. well i have heard of that

    i never felt sick or nauseous although i ate too many at a time

    cool thing though the apple or other fruit i eat really "hits the spot" like sugar can't anymore

    sugar is a demon to be exercised. because it is in evry storebought food ever made ever. emoticon

    sugar is simply immediately stored in the body. it is not used for energy when I eat it. emoticon

    cravings are not hunger. hunger does cause a loss of control, but cravings are not hunger. emoticon

    satiety is self-control. satisfaction not gratification. emoticon

    about 15g sugar per serving is really too much for 1 meal

    it's like corn flakes with 1-2-3-4 spoons of sugar emoticon

    wow bunch of fruit, it's the season. leaving out my storebought granola. I feel sorry for my granola now it has too much sugar in it.

    my storebought granola has about 15g sugar per serving so really too much for 1 meal, it's like corn flakes with 1-2-3-4 spoons of sugar emoticon

    cravings can be beaten if i wait them out a few minutes. noticed after several months practice quitting sugar snacking that if i see a craving then i can wait for it to diminish

    today will skip my breakfast food granola just to pass the craving test, also will use the unsweetened nondairy milk. i have the original flavor because i wanted to try it, but i buy the unsweetened for obvious reason.

    will try to skip all food with added sugar today. so breakfast was leftovers rice and veggies

    no carob chips eaten entire challenge so far. i mix up almonds raisins and carob chips as snacks

    compare cravings vs motivation
    cravings are a weakness? they are weak

    satiety vs self-control = hunger causes a loss of self-control, satiety allows self-control

    but cravings are not caused by hunger?

    snacking might not be healthy. self-control vs satiety

    have known for long time that whole grain carbs are best. I have begun to agree that carbs come with a crash that includes irritability and headache

    chatted about aging with health. am I still chasing sugar out of my diet? yes. I can tolerate sugar, but I am taking the anti-sugar approach to life

    timidly concede to self I might need to make my granola, because what I buy might be loaded with sugar. I buy at the bulk section and I read the ingredients but I buy the one that sounds good or that I already like. sugar is not a main ingredient but the granola is really sweet

    wondering how much sugar was used in the bulk granola i bought, i ate a carrot and grapes. this was the food in my work lunch. i did crave the celery i had but did not eat it at the time.
