A Beginning

Sugar makes the world go round.  Okay, I know it’s supposed to be money, but do you know how much sugar you consume each year?  It’s a lot!  There’s sugar in foods you wouldn’t think would have sugar, but there it is listed as one of the ingredients.

Thinking about sugar and diet just wasn’t on my radar.  Little did I know the changes in store for me when I went to see a doctor.   “No sugar, no flour, no yeast,” said the doctor explaining that this restricted diet would help eliminate an overgrowth of yeast in my body.  Oh, yeah, he also said I would lose weight going sugar free.   I weighed 224 at that time on a 5’3” frame.  Let’s just say I was highly skeptical.

I thought, “What’s left?”  I needed information now!  The Internet became my friend.  Product labels became my new reading material.  I began to notice articles in magazines about the effects of sugar on health.  With a sense of determination, I bought sugar  free cookbooks and started eating sugar free.

It took about a month to find information and go through the food in my refrigerator and cabinets to replace them with foods acceptable (200) for the sugar free diet.   About that time I realized that I had more energy.  My clothes became too loose to continue to wear, so it was off to get some new clothes in lower sizes.  It amazed me because I was losing weight, yet I wasn’t hungry.  (So far I have lost over 70 pounds.)

The most time consuming part was finding information and recipes that satisfied the no sugar diet and my food preferences.  That’s why I want to share what I learned with anyone who wants the no sugar diet or the low sugar diet.

  2. My daughter says that she is interested in a low-sugar diet, as she is totally unwilling to consider a no sugar one. Thanks for including this category for those who need more time weaning themselves off of sugar.

  3. This is the suitable weblog for anyone who wants to seek out out about this topic. You notice a lot its nearly exhausting to argue with you (not that I actually would want…HaHa). You positively put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just nice!
