In January this year, I made a decision. It involved cutting back, primarily on sugar and sweetened delicacies.
There was no sign of diabetes or hint of high cholesterol. But there was a sign of addiction. What seemed perfectly harmless and normal was turning into an obsession.
You know how it is: you go to a party, the hostess asks you to try a slice of delicious chocolate cake, just this once.
You attend a family event and the plates are piled high with milk sweets and deep fried delights. You decide to indulge, just this once.
You're at home, having finished a full meal and you spy that bar of chocolate in the freezer. You take a bite, just this once.
Here's the thing: Just this once translates into many, many times over the course of a week. And before you know it, you're popping sweets willy-nilly! I decided it was time to put the brakes on. It was time to go the lesser route.
So, it began. A 90-day regimen without processed sweets or sugars. Not even a taste.
Was it hard? To be honest, yes, since I have a sweet tooth.
How did I manage the cravings? By munching on nuts and raisins.
How far have I come? Well, as of tomorrow, I will complete 90 days :)
Why 90 days? Come back here tomorrow to know the answer ;)
