This Sugar Free Life

It's been a week and a half and I want to shout it from the mountain tops : "Sugar free is wonderful!"

I'm so pleased I took the plunge. I am amazed at how easy it has been and I'm loving the benefits.

Apart from headaches in the first couple of days, I've really not had a withdrawal, despite being quite a big sugar eater. The craving for sugar isn't there. I used to need a sugar hit after lunch, every single day, but I don't anymore. I just don't feel like it.

The benefits so far have been:
  • No more cravings for something sweet,
  • No more  mid - afternoon slump,
  • No more bloating - I love this benefit!
  • I've lost one and a half kilos in one and a half weeks - whilst still eating as much as I want,
  • Eating full fat yogurt, milk, cheese, meat and nuts and still feeling lighter,
  • Being able to 'hear' my body better - I feel satiated more easily, and I don't feel hungry as much as I used to,
  • I am drinking more water - so I guess my body realizes it is fact thirsty, not hungry.
What's not to love about that?

The best part is that I don't feel deprived. In fact I'm beginning to preach to anyone who will listen. I just want everyone else to enjoy the wonders of an addiction free life.

It is truly marvelous.
