I am on day16 of 48 days of no sugar. I *have* had sugar cravings, but they are not overwhelming, especially if I am intentional about getting lots of protein and making sure that most of my carbs are of the complex, high fiber kind. I have no afternoon "slumps" and have also, serendipitiously, lost ten pounds!! Yippee!
I have cut out Snapple, sugary cereals, cookies, ice cream, syrup (on pancakes), and sugar in my tea.
I have added eggs for breakfast virtually every day, loads of snacking on raw veggies (my favorite is sugar snap peas), homemade sugar-free chocolate for my sweet tooth cravings, and lots and lots of water. (I drank water before, but now it is almost all I ever drink)
So far, so good! Lord, help me to stay the course!
