I’ve made it 5 days of eating (processed) sugar-free! The cravings are no better, but no worse and… happy me! I’ve discovered hamburgers off the grill seem to take away my sugar craving! Go figure! 😉 Bring on the beef and bring on the protein! I ate 2 extra thick and juicy ones on a sugar-free bun with mayo and mustard… yum!😋
My diet today also included a fruit and a nut bar (or two), carrots, celery, coffee with sugar-free coconut milk, an apple, an apricot, and trail mix of nuts, seeds and dried fruit. I also drank water and of course more sugar-free iced tea! I was still hungry most of the day… I’ve learned it is likely because my brain is asking for the sugar it has been so accustomed to! Actually, my brain is demanding it! Ha! I just hope my body and brain thank me later after I fully detox… right now it just feels like I am torturing myself! 😆
5 days sugar-free is quite a nice accomplishment for me nonetheless! I’ve been wondering if adding fruit back into my diet was a good idea or if it was a foolish one. I’m going to have to just see how I do with it and go from there. As of now I’m glad I did, ifor no other reason that I am grateful for additional non-processed sugar-free foods to eat that have enough substance to help satisfy my heightened appetite!
