I'm saying NO to sugar

It's  been 3 days ..........been 3 days since I started this sugar free diet. It's really tough since I have a sweet tooth but sometimes I just gotta do what I gotta do for health sake. I did gave it a try a few weeks ago for a few days but failed miserably......because I just couldn't help myself from taking chocolate drinks every day. It's a bad habit I know and it had to stop.

But it's not just about the chocolate's the coffee...the tea....the hot sweet drinks that I crave for each morning for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I rarely eat chocolates....or take desserts....or eat's not something I take everyday...or every week for that matter. It's the hot sweet drinks that I love the most and seem difficult to avoid taking everyday. 

But now it has all changed. Not only have I not taken any hot sweet drinks of any kind.....I have not taken anything that has sugar in it. Seriously!

I'm not sure how long will I last this time......but I hope to be able to do it for a month and see how it goes.....I'm sure that after a month my body will be accustomed to the new diet and I'll be able to go on with it for the next few months. In fact I hope to continue doing this forever because I know that my body is not able to take sugar that much and is having problems dealing with it. Will stay positive!!! :)

Good luck, Lin dear! I did that a couple of years ago, and found it very difficult indeed, even though I still used natural sweeteners like maple syrup and honey. Our problem here in the US is we don't eat enough whole foods...I keep trying to do that but I fear it will be a lifetime effort. Still, at least I'm trying, right? :)

Hi, Lin.

To help with the sugar cravings, eat something bitter. The craving for sugar will go away.

Since you are giving up sugar, also give up anything with flour and grains. a 100 years ago grains were healthy but the way they grow them now and mill them, they are anything but healthy.

Flour and grains will spike your insulin and other nasties.

Just eat whole foods. Nothing out of a box, package, can or jar. This will do wonders for your health.
