|I still love vegetables.|
So what was the results? I didn't post last week--I wanted to wait until now.
What I was expecting:
- Increased alertness
- Less sleepiness in the afternoon
- Decrease in cravings
- Some weight loss
- A better sense of well-being
|The one thing I missed: Ice-cream|
- I did manage to do better, but I still had to have my coffee (One day I'll do a test on going without coffee for a month. But right now, that's just crazy talk).
- I still felt sleepy in the afternoons, but 15-20 min nap worked fabulously and I was able to write until 10-11p.
- This time around, I really struggled with cravings. Especially ice-cream for dessert and honey in my tea. I never put honey in my tea, but for some reason I *really* wanted to.
- I did manage some weight loss. Nothing huge. (But I am not complaining)
- I'd like to say I felt extensively fabulous--but I will say this I didn't get sick, I managed to get through the day without too much effort.
I will say it was a moderate success--because no matter what happened, I survived without sugar, real or imagined. I admit--I did drink some red wine and yes that is sugar, but I didn't consume anything else. Perhaps I am making an excuse, but I will say this. I plan not to continue not to consume too much sugar and leave it to the weekends or a very special occasion.
Changing ones diet and habits is a process and my goal is continue to experiment and find what works for me.
Next week, I'm going to talk about work outs. This time I am reintroducing Yoga back into my life. I am stiff and I don't like it. I bet you thought I'd talk about kettle bells--Oh, I will, but first things first.
|Yoga. This is next on my Month long challenges.|
How did you do on the no-sugar diet?
