I always thought I was addicted to sugar. Last year I put sugar on my cereal. I would eat I don’t know how many chocolate bars a day. So I think last year I was addicted to sugar.
For years I have been a secret eater. My philosophy was that if no one saw me eat it, it didn’t happen. I would have a stash of chocolate and sweets hidden in many different places and eat it when no one was looking.
I did a lot of baking and all the things I made would contain lots of sugar
When I did the detox back on day 28 it was the worst thing that I have ever been through. For the first 4 days I went through withdrawals I had the shakes, hunger pains and I was incredibly tired. I went cold turkey from sugar.
Since then I have not had one craving, I have not had one slip up, I have not been tempted to eat anything sweet. I very often sit around a dinner table and have to look at nice desserts but it doesn’t bother me. I can take it or leave it, but I tend to,most of the time, leave it.
Even though cold turkey was the worst thing I did while I was going through it, now it is by far the best thing I ever did.
