I went for a period of about seven years without sugar at one time, but gradually it crept back into my diet. It's not like giving up cigarettes or alcohol - you can't just stop, because sugar is hidden in so many of our foods, even unexpected ones like bacon, breads and soup, and supposedly savoury things.
I am starting by cutting out the obvious ones - the cakes and biscuits, sweets and sugary desserts - and am finding it quite easy this time. It does make me notice when I need sugar. At times of stress I need chocolate! It doesn't help, in fact it makes me feel worse after the initial high.
Am losing pounds in weight and saving pounds in cash (I like to think!).
Am gaining in energy and time, as I feel so much better without sugar.
Anyone else feel the same?
