My Life Without Sugar

Picture from http://www.brokendjs.com

I don’t know what I am searching for but as I mature as a person I am seeking ways to improve my quality of life. I am happily married, living a life of full of unique experiences while travelling. I really do have a wonderful life. The only thing that disrupts this contentment is health. I suffer from lethargy and am like many others constantly on the weight loss/gain roller coaster. This is not by any way a vanity issue I am happy with the way I am. It is the health side of things that worries me. As I get older I am thinking more and more towards the future; having children, raising children and aging gracefully and healthily.

Food to me is always on my mind and no I don’t mean I am constantly looking for something to eat. By that statement I mean food to me isn’t pleasurable it is purely consumable.  I eat when I am hungry and don’t when I am not. When I crave something I eat it when I don’t I won’t. I hate fast food like McDonald’s, KFC etc they just don’t do it for me. My problem is processed food. We all eat it. It’s whats inside them where we come undone. The harsh fact is;

I am addicted to sugar!

Like an alcoholic craves alcohol or a crack addict craves crack. I crave sugar, sugar in nearly every form. If you sit back and see the amount of sugar in food you consume daily you would be astonished, disgusted even. Even someone with a sweet tooth would cringe. The cold hard truth is we are all addicted to sugar.

I have been doing research into the facts of sugar addiction and how to nip it in the bud and I am going to do just that. On Monday the 20th my sugarless adventure will begin. With the help of Sarah Wilson’s 8 week plan; “I Quit Sugar” ( http://www.sarahwilson.com.au )I am going to kick the habit or at least give it a red-hot go. I can already forecast when I am going to fall off the wagon but I will plough through. As Sarah clearly states you don’t have to stick to it but at least try it. If it makes me feel better, healthier and brings me clarity why not.

You can follow my journey on the blog under the categories; Health & Wellness or My Life Without Sugar. I need all the support I can get while I am in my own little “sugar rehab”.
