Recently I have been trying to cut down my sugar intake. I know now, how damaging it can be, and I really would like to feel the benefits of having a lot less of it in my life.
But I find it sooooo hard! the temptation is just so great, and then when I give in, I feel extremely guilty. Sound familiar….?!
I’ve just come in from work and eaten TWO white chocolate chip cookies! Two!! And I’ve got two teaspoons of sugar in this coffee I’m drinking…the shame!
I think I need a bit more information than what I’ve gleaned from a few YouTube videos, and reading around on the internet. A book, maybe. I have ordered ‘Seven Weeks To Sobriety’, which is a nutrition-based approach to quitting alcohol, and does involve cutting out sugar. Feeling has read it, and put it into practice. But books from Amazon seem to take aeons to arrive. Apparently I can expect to receive it between 20th Sept and 20th Oct. Hmm.
Tomorrow will see me venturing over the hills and into town (wedding guest outfit final purchases) where there is a half-decent book shop. More expensive than Amazon, but more instant gratification – which I like 😀
I think I may have been making progress prior to my two-biscuit binge. I saw my counsellor on Wednesday (the subject of a future post perhaps), and she did say I looked really well – glowing, even!
So I might come back with a copy of ‘I Quit Sugar’ tomorrow, who knows. Does anyone have any recommendations for my reading list?
