Well, I made it to the end of June with my no ‘refined-sugars’ eating behaviour. I wish I could say that it was for the whole month but 11 days is a long time for me, considering the way that I was eating. (Of course with the caveat that it’s just the obvious sweet foods like cakes and slices, chocolates etc. I’m not reading the ingredients list on any purchased product, like bread etc)
And there was that one biscuit on Day One, or if you must know, by 7.00am on the first day!!!
But I must add, I’m still eating a few pieces of fruit for a bit of a sugar hit. I suppose that I am getting other nutrients at the same time, because it’s a whole food.
I still have a long way to go.
Thank goodness Glenys doesn’t have a sweet tooth or buy sweet snacks, because it would be really hard if I had these foods in the pantry and available all the time.
I know research has made a link between Diabetes and Dementia, and although I don’t understand a lot about Diabetes, I do know that too much of the sugars, salt and ‘bad’ fats is not good for general health, or heart and brain health.
People say to me, “But you don’t have a problem. You’re not overweight.” But that’s only because of all of the exercise that I do each week. Weight is only one indicator of health. Skinny people still have strokes and develop Dementia.
What’s your Achilles Heel? …….. as they say.
