So I have really enjoyed the “clean” food that I’ve been eating recently and I’m feeling much healthier for it as well, but I’ve been doing a lot of reading on the topic and I still have some concerns about the way I’m eating. I still feel that I’m consuming too much sugar and although I have taken steps to remove the processed and refined sugars from my diet, at the end of the day sugar is still sugar no matter what source it comes from. I don’t want to bore you and Sarah Wilson explains it all so much better than me anyway so please feel free to follow the link if you want to know more about “The Science” behind it all.
Reading Sarah Wilson’s book “I quite Sugar” made me realise that I’m eating more sugar than my body is designed to cope with, and no, it’s not okay to eat loads of sugary fruit because its healthy, it’s STILL too much sugar.
I decided that it’s time to take clean eating to the next level and take Sarah Wilson’s 8 week program challenge to eliminate sugar entirely from my system, re-calibrate my body and then start to figure out how much sugar I actually need without the pesky cravings telling me that I need more than I really do.
As a fully blown sugar addict I recognise that this is not going to be easy but I’m excited to see whether I can rid myself of my addiction and intrigued to see whether my taste buds will change to start allowing me to enjoy other, non-sweet foods more.
Of course I will be blogging about my experiences along the way so if anyone else is up for the challenge then stay tuned to see how I get on and please go easy on me if I slip up, apparently sugar is 8 times more addictive than cocaine and I’m going cold turkey.
