Life Without SUGAR - The Update

IMG_4209 Theseare the foods I used to eat on a regular basis that I do not eat anymore- at all:

Bread, Bagels, Crackers, Cereals, Chocolate, Rice, Jelly, Candies,

 

Foods I used to eat that I still eat:

Sweetened creamer in my coffee, chocolate chip cookie dough or cookies on cheat days, tortillas every once in awhile.

 

Foods I didn’t, or barely ate, that I eat more of now:

 

Fish, Vegetables, Nuts

 

Hardship Level:  ZERO

 

How I feel:  AMAZING.  It is the most wonderful feeling to sit at a restaurant, not reach for the bread, and not miss it.  It is an incredible high to go to the grocery store and pass up almost everything.  It is beautiful to have a cheat day and eat my chocolate chip cookie dough without guilt or remorse.

 

My body feels stronger and more healthy.  My energy level is far more balanced.  My performance at Crossfit is improving. I am finally rid of most of my belly fat.  My body looks more defined.  But how I FEEL is the most exciting aspect of not eating sugar.  I feel proud to have done it… I feel happy to be able to keep it up…. It feels like an achievement, an accomplishment, a benchmark. 


If I can, anyone can. I know that.
