Still sugar free and LOVING it

Monday, November 07, 2011

soooo i have been sugar free for just over a month now....and i feel amazing!!! its crazy how sugar changes so many things....from the way food tastes to what you crave!!!

Things that were once not sweet enough are now WAYYYYY to sweet.

Example i used to have a huge glass of Apple Juice and go back for seconds (empty calories i know), now, if i have juice at all (i have had it once), i put about 2 oz in a 20 oz cup and fill the rest with water. That makes it sweet enough for me....yogurts I once thought were bitter (and those around me think taste like sour cream) are now delicious and sweet.

I also have noticed that my appetite has changed. I am almost NEVER hungry, and when i eat it has to be something tasty, not mediocre.....
I eat, don't get me wrong, but its not how it used to be, i eat to live, and i eat to enjoy what i choose to eat.....i don't eat because i'm starving or craving or feel sick and faint because my blood sugars outta whack! I used to eat ALL the time because i was trying to satisfy the sugar cravings, ALL THE TIME, now that the cravings are gone, so is the need to continually eat!!!

its a really great change!!! Its amazing to feel in control of food, instead of it controlling me....its wonderful to be able to eat to live, and to see food as fuel, instead of living to eat and living meal to mean and snack to snack!!!

    I agree with you compleatly!!! sugar has been shown to cause low grade inflammation in ALL parts of the body, including the brain!!!! sugar also affects your serotonin levels and can have a major impact on migraines and depression. because it releases feel good chemicals straight into your brain (serotonin) it has an addictive quality as well!!!
    I notice major differences in my mental health when i'm off sugar, and i have major muscle weakness and fatigue when i eat it.

    Did you know sugar traveled the world by trade ship faster then any modern day drug (think cocaine crack heroin) has done so using out modern forms of transportation?? Crazy hu!

    I think sugar has more effects than anyone realizes. I can get my arthritic knee to be pain free if I avoid sugar (and wheat and dairy). Sugar throws your whole system off.
