Well, I am in the process of cutting out sugar, and eventually quitting it. I’ve recently been noticing how addicted I am to it. I got home from work the other day, and finished off half a block of chocolate in a few minutes. I have no self-control when cakes and slices are around. I feel bloated all the time, but also always hungry. So I read I quit sugar by Sarah Wilson, and was convinced that I needed to quit.
It’s a shame, because I love baking and making sweet things.
The first week involves just cutting back on my sugar consumption. I’m actually amazed at how well I’ve been able to do this. I’m still eating 1 piece of fruit a day, and I did have a couple of pieces of brownie my friend made, but it tasted excessively sweet (and its only been a week!) And that’s all the sugar I’ve had. Usually I would eat a lot more than that.
Now I’m starting to look into all the hidden sugar I eat. I don’t eat low-fat foods, so no sneaky sugar in there, but I’m sure I’m eating things like sauces and dressings that are hiding lots of sugar.
