first of all: happy Valentine's Day! No matter if you like it or not. I think Grumpy Cat does not.
I am still living the sugar free life! Well, no refined sugar at least, I do eat fruits. If I could not eat any fruits then I would have a problem.
Last night I woke up at 3 am and I felt terrible. All I could think of was cake, chocolate, candy, pie, pudding, chips, hot chocolate....It was horrible, I can tell you. My body needed some sugar. I could not take it any longer. So I got up, walked to the fridge, opened it and grabbed anything I craved. I felt so relieved...but I also knew that I failed.,,,
Well, that is what I thought would happen at some point.
But it did not (at least not yet). I am still staying strong. I am still living without adding any refined sugar and avoiding food that contains any sugar. And surprisingly, it isn't that bad. I really expected that there would be any weird cravings but that did not really happen. Of course, when I saw a vegan apple pie I thought that I could eat a piece of that. But I did not feel like I had to eat a piece.
I probably ate an unhealthy amount of raisins over the last couple of days...I don't know how many raisins count as unhealthy but I ate a lot. And nuts. Lots and lots of nuts, unsweetened yogurt, brussel sprouts, broccoli, chick peas, potatoes, coconut milk, bananas....I made a lot of smoothies, drank a lot of tea....it was actually pretty healthy what I ate but I also think that I ate more than usual. I don't know why but I think I had to made up for all the missing sugar. If that makes any sense. But I ate so healthy (except of the 17 pounds of raisins) that I feel totally fine. I think I even lost 20 grams. Haha. I don't weigh myself very often so I don't really keep track of my weight.
So yes, I am feeling fine and I am not having any weird cravings. Only one more day of my experiment left. I will definitely try to eat as less refined sugar as possible but I am also looking forward to eating some cookies or chocolate at some point soon.
Thank you for all your support! It really means a lot to me!
Have a great day!
