Sweet, delicious sugar. It's everywhere. Especially during the holidays! It seems like the holidays are one big reason to indulge mercilessly on every dessert imaginable.
Don't get me wrong, they are all delish! I love me some pie!!
But it's too easy. It's a slippery slope from one dessert once a week, to one dessert every night! That hasn't happened to me any time this year, but it seems like it's creeping closer, that craving for sugary goodness. I made both cookies and brownies in the last week, and luckily I was able to control myself from eating the whole lot of them. But it also required me throwing them in the trash. Oops!
So while this is probably the worst possible time to cut things from one's diet, I am attempting to cut most sugar out from my diet for the next 18 days. Along with fake sugar. I know I consume too much fake sugar. Real sugar I usually keep fairly low anyways. But I drink Crystal Light Energy, use sugar free vanilla in my coffee, the list goes on. Time to get a hold of things! My plan is to keep my intake to 15g per day or less.
I am not cutting out carbs. I know that the 21-Day Sugar Detox plan doesn't allow for refined carbs and a lot of fruit. I am not following that plan. I am doing something that works for my lifestyle. A friend of mine will be cutting sugar as well and we will weigh in with each other tomorrow and on Wednesdays. I hope she is ready to deal with my crankiness! LOL
