Today is the day. I have decided to give up sugar for 30 days. Not fruit or natural sugar but sugar added into products unnecessarily like high fructose Corn syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose and any other sugar. Fructose from fruit is okay on this adventure. Potatoes are cool. Bread is out since most bread has added sugar. Corn chips are okay.
During the first day I felt a bit grumpy but I didn’t; really feel any side affects. May have been a bit less hungry but nothing was a big deal.
I had a banana for breakfast with coffee and no sugar added creamer. Lunch was a bomb salad and dinner was some left over tofu that I had cooked with garlic, ginger and added some pickled cucumbers I made.
I am doing this challenge because I want a clean mind and a healthier body. Everyone who goes sugar free seems to lose weight and can focus better than before they started this. I hope it works. I am “on the wagon” for the next thirty days.
I started label reading and can’t believe how much sugar they add to nearly everything (including things like stuffing, ketchup, BBQ sauce is nearly entirely sugar, soda, tomato sauce, bread.
