Doing a week on no sugar (including fruits, starchy veg and grains) was too much for me. It was just to big a change right now. I just had a root canal, I am in pain. I am really stressed about finding a job, family problem stress, and finals week - it was just to much for me at once.
Not that it wasn’t worth the effort. I realized how much I do enjoy fruit. And how much I need to expand the variety in the fruit I eat. And I managed to reduce sugar in the areas that don’t matter much to me - like in my tea, I adjusted to the change pretty quickly.
So……. I put cutting out most sugar on the back burner. I still have some emotional eating issues to come to terms with, and my stress level is to high. I will continue with the small changes I have made, and re-examine this issue at a later time.
