Low sugar challenge
« on: May 20, 2019, 07:17:42 AM »
Hi,

The idea is to challenge myself to not having dessert, cookies, sweets and the likes!

Start day - 12th May.

1) Broken on 19th May when I had a dessert when my friend gave it to me, ate it without realizing, and two piece!

You might want to move this to the Throw Down the Gauntlet section.

Yesterday I read that my hazelnut Keurig coffee choice spikes an insulin response.  When I am abstaining from sugar I would drink extra cups of the black hazelnut coffee.  (Free & provided)  Now changing over to just regular coffee blends without any flavoring (hazelnut, French vanilla).  I didnít worry about it because I had already done away with sugar and creamer.

So far I've managed to abstain myself from sugary things. There are one or two misses (I counted two) when I was offered biscuits when visiting people and, out of courtesy, you take a piece.

Apart from that still take a lots of natural sugar from fruits.

One month on, some of the things I've broken

1) popcorn in movies once
2) tea with tablespoon sugar three times
3) small piece of cake once
4) some raisins once

Not perfect, but it's still a good win compared to where I was over a month ago.

You could try the app "Eat right now". It is about changing eating habits and learning to eat mindfully.

Have you noticed any positive changes in things like sleep or lost any weight? What was the primary driver for this challenge?

Sugar intake is one of the main reason we age so fast, cutting a considerable amount helps us to stay youthful.
