Sugar boycott


#41

Ah @MandiH - I caved yesterday too. A combination of our local Greek festival (and all the amazing pastries) and terrible PMS was a BAD combination. On the days I did well, though, I felt better.
On to the next week… and, as @Yoda-Stevie says, we’ll keep getting better at getting better.

And gosh - what a handsome boy you have!

Aww thank you! He was all, mom, my hair is a mess you cant take a picture haha. But you are right, we are getting better at getting better! :heart:


#43

Oh my goodness, I WANT that ice cream :heart_eyes: I’ve been so good at staying away from it even though I have a tub in the freezer for my kids, your tempting me :joy:


#44

Omg I didnt even think of that, so sorry! I’ll edit that and take it out!


#45

:joy: It’s fine hun it’s not bad, just looks so good :slight_smile: I’m not bothered you posted the picture, leave it up :kissing_heart:


#46

What a great thread! Plan on joining you all in the next few weeks (one addiction at a time). Thought I never had a sweet tooth, until I cut out alcohol :grimacing:


#47

Same here. Never even ate dessert. Oh, how that has changed.:roll_eyes:


#48

I’ve been contemplating the same thing. I havent had a sweet tooth ever, really, until the last few weeks. I dont like it, frankly. This recipe has been my go-to snack for years now and there are so many ways to make it your own but it’s unbelievable just the way it is. I also use less brown sugar than it calls for - but you do need a little for the clustery crunch. https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1014304-eleven-madison-park-granola

Fruit is a good choice, in moderation of course.

hey_sugar_lumps__by_forester10-d8byjht This is still how I feel about sugar…this is harder than I thought it would be this time around! I’ve lowered my intake quite a bit and I’m 3 days off coffee, but still having a little sugar daily. But I’m not giving up!


#51

I have not done well at all this week. Been to things today and yesterday where there have been proper homemade cookies and cake.

I don’t have much sugar in my diet, most things I eat are made from scratch and no sugar in tea. But homemade cakes are my weakness!


#52

Been sugar free. Lots of steak, eggs and spicy sausages. Even refused the delicious dark chocolate lily’s bars

Keto for life.


#53

Did you just go cold turkey or did you ween off of it?


#54

I always had a hard time staying under 20 carbs on the Keto diet, while getting in the right amount of fiber and healthy/nutritious foods in that I like :confused: :green_salad::banana::carrot::avocado::lemon: I could never get the right amount of fats in too. But it did help with appetite!


#55

I just quit cold turkey. I do still have some on occasion. Last 2 months my sugar tooth was bad, but I think I’m mostly past it again


#56

I don’t worry about fiber. I very rarely get constipated.

Mayo and coconut oil are great for quick fat.

And the reduced appetite is amazing. I only eat once a day typically and it works just fine.


#57

@MandiH - I’m trying this tonight instead of my beloved ice cream. We’ll see how it goes!


#58

Alright, what’s going on in here? I only have one ice cream bar and a handful of M&Ms left in my sugar supply.

Full disclosure: With great intent I bought a bag of grapes to replace my M&Ms. It turns out having them and eating them are two different things. :expressionless:


#59

I use Xyla as a sugar replacement and I absolutely love it- ooooh an Nelly’s sugar free chocolate chips for baking!!

I went in to work to this on Monday morning. And resisted! Not even one biscuit.
