Today was assessment day at the gym! In a little under 4 weeks I'm down just over ten pounds and have lost eleven inches including two off my waist!
So sugar-free is the way to go!
The best thing is how simple it's been. It's simple not because I cut my sugar intake down to less than 15g per day but because once you do that the cravings go away so it's no longer a battle.
There is no calorie counting, no special meals, nothing except an awareness of where the sugar is(it is often very hidden) and some planning for your meals.
And there was no exercise as I've injured my foot.
I've been watching videos and reading reports from the experts and it turns out that sugar is toxic in large amounts. Not just the "good" sugar but all sugar including that in fruit. Your body doesn't know the difference. So you can have sugar but you must moderate the intake.
I feel fantastic, I definitely see a difference in how I look and I feel like I could live this way forever! I'm not saying I'll never eat cake but I know I won't eat it today.
So I'm in for another 4 weeks. Let's see how it all goes!
