No sugar, thank you.

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

I gave up sugar several months ago simply because I finally realized that, for me, it triggers cravings for more. I am basing this solely on how I feel, my experiences, and have no research to quote. I just know that I can eat most types of food until I am satisfied, I want to eat sugary treats until the are gone. I never can eat just a little. That one change,...a big one, I know...has made a significant difference for me in how I feel and my eating habits. I had a lapse over Christmas, enough to realize I am right that sugar is not for me! So now I am comfortably leaving the sugary treats and added sugar out of my eating plan. Once again I feel those cravings..the ones that stomp around in my brain, whining like a spoiled child..subside. Adding the structure of portion control and the accountability of journaling is my next step toward my goal.

    Great job! I'm the same with processed refined snack foods (cold cereals, chips, non dairy ice cream, etc.,).
    I've stopped eating them since the start of the year but I know that if I ever reintroduce them back into my diet... I'm going to regret it, big time. When I do want something sweet, I reach for sweet potatoes, seasonal fruit (nice and sweet), or make 'nice cream' (froz banana with berries and cocoa powder). For crunchy I reach for thinly sliced apples either sprinkled with cinnamon or balsamic vinegar. Keep up the good work!

    I too have cut most sugar out of my diet. And I notice a big difference as well. When I do use sugar it is sugar in the raw or splenda with my coffee.
