Last Tuesday, I was chatting to a friend about how she had cut out sugar in a bid to reverse the steady decent in to death-by-cookies that a history degree initiates.
“I was utterly foul for the first week, and I dreamt about biscuits, but now I feel great and I don’t even miss it.”
This wasn’t the first time I’d heard about sugar withdrawal and the amazing health benefits which followed it. Having watched ‘Sugar Free Farm’ (where celebrities go cold turkey on sugar for a month) I have to admit I was intrigued. So I decided to join her.
I plan to stay off of all refined/processed sugar until Easter: biscuits, cake, chocolate, sugar in my tea.
From there, we shall see but I’m hoping to only have sugar as a treat on rare occasions. I’m still allowing myself fruit juice, yogurts and jam though – I need this to be something I can stick with!
I’m feeling ok for now, but I’m bracing myself for the grumpy side effects from the sugar withdrawal.
Let’s do this!
Until next time,
