Has anyone given up sugar? (or at least drastically cut down?)
I wrote a food diary yesterday (i wasn't remotely, by anyone's imagination, on plan) because i wanted a record of what i ate on "bad" days.
Now what i ate would have sent any "normal" person into a diabetic coma, i'm sure of it, but it didn't affect me at all (well a little heartburn, which in the grand scheme of things should have been a whole lot worse) and it made me think.
Why didn't it make me sick as a dog? Have i really got that much of a tolerance built up to withstand that amount of sugar abuse?
So my question is, has anyone given up sugar or at least drastically cut down?
I don't mean natural sugars that you find in things like dairy and fruit etc, this is purely the white refined sugar you get in things like cake, biscuits, chocolate etc etc
I have tried in the past to cut it out and i don't seem to last a day as i get wicked headaches (which is a sign i should quit in and of itself really) so i always end up giving in.
I'm not the type of person who can have all this stuff in the house and stay away from it (major kudos to those that can, really, i admire that!!)
So do you use your syns (or calories if doing another diet) for non sweet stuff? I don't use sweetener, so it would literally be a cold turkey thing.
Any tips from anyone would be very much appreciated.
Thank you :D xx
