DAY 21

I gave up refined Sugar 21 days ago.  Why?  I watched “That Sugar Film” and I decided to find out what effect not having refined sugar in my diet would have.  I didn’t have a need to lose weight, but I certainly could do with some extra energy. This is what I was hoping for...So [...]

DAY 16

I am really, really pleased with the progress of this no sugar challenge. The worst, is by far over.  I mean the cravings....my body is not craving so much at all. What is happening is something quite incredible.  My eyes have been well and truly opened. I feel like I can see  the wood for [...]

DAY TEN

I went to the cinema today and I was thinking oh oh about the sweet treats!!  It is actually incredible how your only options are sugar options. My eyes are being really opened and I cannot believe how the marketing giants have us all by the short and curlies. So instead we went to buy [...]

DAY NINE

Today I noticed my trousers are somewhat looser on me.  As I said at the beginning of this challenge, I am not looking to lose weight, it is about energy and health for me.  Even though I am eating more food than I normally do, it is obviously the sugar that has been making me [...]

DAY EIGHT

I had a bit of a wobble today…….  I was like, Ok, so I am all about balance and here I am eliminating something completely from my diet!  SUGAR!! I believe very much in the 80/20 rule.  I believe, to live a good life, we must have balance.  Now, if that means having a little [...]

DAY SEVEN

Let’s just talk about SKIN!!  I am NOT joking...My skin has completely cleared up!!! Normally I have a couple of pimples on my face, BUT it is the clearest it has been for a LOOOOOONG time.  I am certain it is because I am not eating sugar!  It can’t be that big a coincidence can [...]

DAY FIVE

Something weird has happened to me this week. I have not had ONE nana nap!! Normally I feel really tired around early afternoon time.  This week has been quite different.   Even though it has been really tough not having chocolate, my energy levels have significantly increased. I must admit that my head is feeling [...]

DAY FOUR

Temptation is just EVERYWHERE!!  The cravings are still pretty strong. BUT I am feeling pretty strong in myself. I am finding myself really ENJOYING my food so much more at the moment.  My taste buds seem to be really heightened to food.  I am tasting more than I normally do.  I can’t work out why [...]
