Week 1 on the way to quitting sugar is done and dusted.
Did I fall off the wagon? Hell yes!
Did I pick myself back up and try again. Of course!
Can I fit one more cliche in here?
Piece of Cake anyone?
Week 1 was about reducing the amount of sugar I consume.
To be honest it was hard. Mainly because I would forget what I was attempting to do…!
My habits kicked in whenever I reached for a snack or made a cup of tea and I would find myself putting teaspoons of sugar in my cup before realising what I was doing.
I think I’m going to have to put signs up around the house to remind me.
It’s been good though, having to be more self aware of what I’m putting in to my mouth. After just one week I find I’m eating sugar not because I crave it but because it’s such an ingrained habit.
And when I do eat chocolate or ice cream I find i’m not really enjoying it. To me that is a good thing and I’m hoping that will make the next few weeks easier
Week 2 of I Quit Sugar
Week 2 is about increasing your fat intake.
Yes that’s right. Fat. YUMMO!
This means replacing sugary snacks and meals with fats and protein.
Examples of this include:
- Snacking on nuts instead of chocolate,
- Having some cheese, try some grilled haloumi – yum!
- Using avocado instead of honey on your toast.
Try some avocado, fetta and sun dried tomato all mixed roughly together. Delicious.
For me this week will be about:
- Trying to remember what I’m doing!
- Eating some fat or protein instead of a sugary snack
- Doing some exercise :p
I’m going to enjoy this week as much as I can because come Week 3 there’s no more sugar. Gulp.
