I am not an all or nothing kind of gal, but I have mostly given up sugars.
I don't eat bread (mostly sugar), Rice (mostly sugar), sweet potatoes, almost any grains, etc. And of course, that means no sugar in things like candies, cookies, etc!
But, I do eat fruit, but I don't eat a lot of it. I eat one apple a day with cinnamon and peanut butter. I will eat some frozen berries (strawberries and blueberries) in a yogurt smoothie (just plain yogurt, whey protein and berries) once or twice a week.
Do I miss it? No, not really and I'm still trying to figure out why I allow myself to succumb to it - like on vacation and the holidays. Probably because I love the taste of it. But, man I HATE I how feel when I'm under it's power and then once I'm eating it, I crave it and then it gets harder to stop eating it. Really, the best answer for me is to just stay away from it period as it makes me feel worse than the enjoyment at the moment is worth. Now just to really REMEMBER that then next time the holidays arrive!
I'm aiming for healthy and fit - not perfection.
