SUGAR DETOX :: DAY ONE

Sugar Detox 2
My first day of the sugar detox wasn't terrible – probably because I didn't follow the rules exactly... I followed the level 1 rules where you can still eat some dairy.

In the morning I ate a big plate of scrambled eggs with cottage cheese. I left feeling full (too full, actually) and didn't have to eat my snack until much later. My snack was 10 almonds and a few pumpkin seeds and cashews. Then I ate a spinach salad with chicken and a hard boiled egg for lunch. It was perfect and kept me full all afternoon. I ate another nut snack (same amount) right before I hit the gym. On my way home, the dining halls were still open and I grabbed a plastic plate and got some chicken for dinner. It was chicken parmesan and I scraped most of the top off but who am I kidding, there was still some kind of crust on it I probably shouldn't have eaten. I ate it with some marinated broccoli (in what, I don't know, so again, not sure about the sugar), some snow peas, some beets and carrots. I sprinkled spirulina over it all. It was amazing. 

As always, my sweet tooth kicked in after dinner, and I tried really hard to ignore it but it was almost impossible. The only sweet thing you're allowed is a green apple or a green banana. I didn't have any of those. I saw gum and I chewed that... sugar, right? damn.

Some of the negative effects reported are "headaches, cold-like symptoms, low energy, constipation, body odor, skin breakouts, irritable, sporadic sleep"... It's been one day so I can't say I've noticed anything different. I don't think I've eaten so much protein in a while. It keeps me full and feeling energetic.

Nothing much to report. It's hard saying no. That is all. See you in the next couple days for another sugar detox report...! Vx

No doubt that sugar is one serious addictions in our society. Although there is a vast difference between processed sugar and the sugar that comes from nature (fruits). Anyway sounds like an interesting experience, waiting for the next updates. Much success!
