The War on Sugar
Sunday, February 15, 2015
High protein, low carb (no desserts, cereals, breads, flour, pasta, or fruit). So far no grains or beans. I'm going to ask the doctor if I can at least add in a serving of beans or two during the week. It's not just a little hard for me; it's SUPER hard sticking to this way of eating. I'm fighting nasty Candida and there is no telling how long I'll have to be this strict with the diet; it sure isn't only going to be a couple of weeks. I'm eating most of my veggies raw and sticking to mostly green ones. Everyone, including the doctor, says to keep stress low. Oh yeah, sure. Stress makes cortisol rise and therefore sugar cravings increase. When it's in your face everyday; not so easy. When I've reached out for help with a major situation I'm dealing with, a blind eye and deaf ear are all the rage with most. Fair weather friends are everywhere. But I am thankful for a friend, although miles and miles away, has been a faithful and true friend through it all.
I will probably have to eat this way for a very looooong time. I'm hoping I get to the point I enjoy it and then embrace it permanently.
Wait what's that I smell cooking in the kitchen?! My son is making homemade pancakes! and....I'm going to munch on some broccoli.
