Today marks the 22nd day of my sugar-free journey. I’m doing okay avoiding sugar, but it’s clear that I am naturally, instinctively, and perhaps even habitually drawn to sugar. I’d settle for honey or agave even but in my original commitment to this challenge I gave up those two as well thinking it might help …

It’s entirely possible that I would never feel at peace without processed sugar in my diet. It is crazy to think that after 21 days of no processed sugar that I’ve noticed no immediate health or mental benefit of any kind… all I’ve felt is discomfort and subtle cravings.  I miss sugar.

Day 20 of my sugar-free challenge was pretty uneventful. I’m getting used to knowing which foods I can eat and what foods to avoid so when I get hungry it is easier to figure out what I’m going to eat.  I’ve been eating more salt I think because of all of the meat and cheese. …

Today marks day 11 on my processed sugar-free journey. Some moments are easier than others… mostly it is still hard. I went to a health food store and purchased a supplement that is supposed to help take away these ridiculous sugar cravings (aka Pink Walrus/Starbucks cravings). I look forward to seeing if it will indeed …

Today makes 9 days without processed sugar, sugar substitutes or corn syrup! 👏🏼 Today was absolutely easier and I give myself credit for that by being prepared with multiple high protein and sugar-free food items available to me and within reach! I’m still craving sugar and sweets but it’s at a more tolerable level and …

I made it one week processed sugar-free! Today was ever-so-slightly easier craving-wise… eating more protein is definitely key! 🔑❤️  I am hoping each day gets a little easier… I’d like to stop feeling such a strong pull towards thoughts of sugary treats and beverages! I’m looking forward to my daydreams drifting to other things! 😝  …

So, I made it through processed sugar-free day 6 and I took the lessons I learned on day 5 and applied them to help me survive!  I basically went heavy on the protein and it worked! I ate 3 fresh eggs for breakfast, 3 beef patties for lunch, a little fresh fruit, sugar-free blue corn …
