Day 5, The No Sugar Journey

Alright, here we are…Day 5.  I have had a lot of questions about this.  Are we eating artificial sweeteners? No.  I never do anyway. Cindy found a wonderful sweetener at Teavana and used it in her tea the other day. German rock cane sugar crystals.

I am finding that I crave carbohydrates. Yesterday I was not paying as much attention to what I was eating, and at the end of the day, I realized I had overloaded on pasta and pretzels. Still got in lots of fruit, though.

Cindy told me that she is realizing that she uses sugar as a crutch.  She needs to watch the protein intake (increase) and make sure she eats enough food.  If we let ourselves get too hungry, we both seem to want the sugar.

So, we need to Pay Attention.  This is an important thing for everyone and I tell my clients this often.  Now I have to make sure I am following my own advice! I do notice I am feeling a little more energetic–look out!
