Is it possible to ween yourself off sugar?
Tuesday, June 17, 2014
I have a terrible time with sugar. Hypothyroidism doesn't help, unfortunately, and it could be a while yet before we find a treatment that works for me.
I try to go without sugar, I really do. The fog hits, the lack of energy, the aches and pains. And I know why I feel that way, I honestly do. But I need to work. I need to be able to function. So I cave. Even if it's just a little bit.
I'm wondering if I can start paying close attention to my sugar intake and decrease it until I'm completely weened off of it. SP and My Fitness Pal track sugar so I could just start today and work to have less each day. Even if it's 1 gram less! I used to bug my dad about smoking. I'd say why not just count how many you have today and have 1 less tomorrow. 1 less the next day, and so on. Even half a cigarette less each day would have been better than nothing.
Has anyone ever tried it?
