It’s been two months since quitting sugar. In this video, I talk about my weight loss and I talk about my struggle to find the balance between convenience and eating healthy. If you prefer to read the text, keep reading for a summary.
Since I’ve become a member of this no-sugar, low-carb community, I’ve noticed something that doesn’t make sense to me. And it seems pretty wide-spread. I keep hearing people talking about “cheating” on their diets or allowing a “cheat” day, or even “cheating” as a reward for accomplishing a diet goal. So let me start by talking directly to those people.
You’re all nuts!
Okay, that may seem a bit harsh, and honestly, I still love you all. But this kind of thinking is just plain nutty to me….unless, of course, you don’t intend to eat the way you’re eating for the rest of your life. If you’re just skipping the sugar until you reach you’re ideal weight, well, good for you. That plan has worked for countless others, so of course it will work for you too! Have a nice life. On the other hand, if you’ve chosen a no-sugar diet as your lifestyle; if you’re eating this way because you want to experience all the health benefits that come with such a healthy lifestyle, than the idea of “cheating” shouldn’t be a part of it.
