Sugar makes me actually sick to my stomach yet I still eat it and I don’t know why … but I know that if I google it there are a million sites that will confirm that there are things in it that make it addicting.
I do so well, I track my food, my work outs and I don’t even like sweets. Actually, I used to be anti sugar, cakes, candy, etc… the occassional sour patch kid, well that is a different story, but cookies, cheesecake, baked goods… NO INTEREST… so what happened to me? The same thing that happens to everyone with a “sweet tooth” I started eating it.
People eat desert at certain times of the day, the month or when they are celebrating or drowning their sorrows. What am I getting at? There is an addiction related to eating sweets. Are we eating the sweets because of the emotional connection? Because of the habit we have formed? Because of what sugar does to our body?
I say D all of the above! How do we stop? Well I believe in balance but in order to make anything a habit you have to really commit to a minimum of 60 days. So that is it, 60 days starts tomorrow. This doesn’t include natural sugars in fruits/veggies, I am talking any processed sugars. YIKES!
For balance – I treat per week that means A cookie or A piece of cake (PORTION SIZE IS 1/8 of a slice)
Let’s see how it goes!
