As I wrote in my previous post, I haven’t eaten sugar since the end of 2016. This has brought on many great things for me. I have become a lot healthier and my head has cleared up a lot, so I find it easier to focus and do well in school, which is great for young people. I also have more energy to workout and do more of the things I love, I’ve learnt to cook and I have learnt a lot about nutrition.
When I first quit I did still eat some processed food such as potato chips, but after about 7/8 months I decided I wanted to go all the way and quit that too, which is when everything started to flip over for me and I felt a lot happier.
By sugar I mean fructose, the bad sugar. There is also sucrose the common table sugar which is 50% fructose 50% glucose, your body needs glucose to get energy and your brains needs it to function. Whereas fructose heads straight to your liver and converts to fat, it also affects your hormones making you really happy then you crash which makes you feel like you need more to feel happy again.
The recipes I use are great and my whole family enjoys them. After a while of not eating sugar you won’t feel like you need it all the time, which was a big worry for me as I thought I would be craving it all the time.
I really want to inspire people, especially the younger generation, to take the plunge and quit with me. You won’t regret it!
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed.
