After two great months I have to admit that during my class trip to Villa de Leyva I ate a lot of sugar. (sigh) I’ll try not to be so hard on myself and get back to the right path. (sigh) 2 months ago

I’ve to admit it: I competely forgot about controlling my sugar intake during the holidays. I ate all the sweet treats people gave me and even more, I bought some of my own. My last exam was o.k., but I seriously doubt it is going to be the same now. So, I begin again today. I have to understand that my health and my life are more important than the instant gratification of eating something sweet. 4 months ago
I think that next Christmas, I’m going to politely ask people to not give me food as gifts. 4 months ago
I’ve managed to reduce a lot my sugar intake. There are still two major challenges:
-Birthday cake (I’ve had too many parties, I need to take something with me, a little bit of fruit or something to avoid eating the delicious treats and cake)
-Coke (Since my sister is addicted to coke, she always keeps a bottle and a glass in front of the T.V. I need to keep a healthy alternative in order to resist temptation) 7 months ago
Today I re-discovered why I have this goal. I got a pack of rusks for my birthday, and I ate them all over the last few days. Now I have a stiff neck, and nothing is done. It erodes my discipline and makes me fat. 7 months ago
I have given up sugar now.
Well, maybe not all sugar all the time, but I am pretty proud of myself: having a very, very sweet tooth I limited my sugar intake to tiny treats every once in a while and not even every day. That was a very good thing to do. I also became aware of how often I used sugar when I am cooking something that is not even supposed to be sweet! That was quite an eye opener, actually. It was good to get used a bit to use honey or brown sugar instead – or skip it completely!
There is always a but…
I like treats.
So, limiting them to a few times a week instead of a few times a day is something that is improving my health a lot – without impairing my mood too much…

How I did it: Sweet foods don't appeal to me as much as sweet drinks do. My biggest hurdle was drinking my coffee without sugar. To start, I added honey instead of sugar. Then molasses (since it was in the cupboard). That helped wean me off of sweet coffee. I stopped drinking soda, as well. The difference in how I feel is well worth not eating sugar.

Ok, I have a confession to make…
Sugar is veeeery good for the nerves to make them endure long-term stress situations and they can survive a lot longer with a little dose of sugar. The effects of chocolate on the brain/mood/nerves has also been shown in many studies and so it actually was some kind of neccessary treatment that I had to administer to myself…
And it was good!

It’s not thaaat diffiuclt to keep myself from eating sugary treats. Not at all. But keeping from adding a little sugar here and there is. For example, I bought strawberries yesterday and prepared them in a bowl for the kids to eat with some yoghurt – and sprinkled them with sugar. It’s ok for them but it’s that habit that I want to get rid of, because these strawberries were fine without the extra sugar.
I am sticking to dates and raisins, a little apple butter on a cracker and some more coffee. It helps! 11 months ago
This wasn’t difficult at all. Sweetening my oatmeal with raisins and cinnamon, having avocado on my bread and enjoying a few dates filled with walnuts as a healthy snack almost felt like cheating.
It would be great to continue like this and ban refined sugar from my diet as much as possible. 11 months ago
But it’ll be good for me.
Having more coffee instead, lemon-water, dried fruit, nuts and seeds and some vegetables sounds like a reasonable idea.
I still need to think about what to have with bread instead of my favorite jam. I guess that one will be my only exception; taking apple butter (for the iron). 11 months ago
It’s quite easy really. I occasionally buy myself a cappuccino on campus. Very occasionally – I avoid caffeine. I don’t like my cappuccino bitter, so I usually add some sugar, which stands on the counter. I’m currently in a sugar cutting phase, so I asked if they have some sweetener, and they did! Quick & easy. 17 months ago
I had a medical appointment today. I need to quit sugar if I don’t want to have diabetes. This is going to be harder than quitting alcohol because I’m really addicted to chocolate. 20 months ago
No, it’s not a fad diet: eating only small amounts of starch is a healthy lifestyle choice. This has been a scientific fact for some time now, and in my experience good for me too. 23 months ago
