#HooplaFind and just at the right time. Eve Schaub is definitely loopy & at times preachy but I bought her message “sugar is equivalent to crack” It‘s an addiction & it‘s really in almost EVERY manufactured food product( dressing, yogurt, granola, protein bars, mayonnaise, ketchup, instant oats) I‘m not advocating a year of no sugar but I‘m trying to avoid artificial sweeteners & those hidden sugars for 90 days. Entertaining read/ informative

AlaMich I did a 21 day sugar/bad carb detox, and after the first week or so, it wasn't nearly as bad as I'd expected it to be. Of course, during that first week I would have happily sold my grandmother for a Hershey bar... 😬 2w
PatienceFortitude Dunno if I have the discipline to tackle all the sources of hidden sugars, but I am currently trying to say no to sweets and baked goods to help my diet be healthy 2w
Bkwurm I don‘t have the discipline to go cold turkey, but I‘ve been slowly cutting sugar and sugar-based additives & preservatives out of my diet for the past year. It‘s not easy!! 2w

Cinfhen Saying No to sweets is definitely hard @PatienceFortitude @Bkwurm I find I‘m CRAVING sweets like an addict looking for a fix @AlaMich but im hoping once I figure out what‘s a safe “snack” and I find other foods to enjoy I‘ll start to feel physically better 2w
Cinfhen Hi @BookBabe 👋🏽Thanks for the thumbs up 💋 2w
AlaMich @Cinfhen The cravings really do get better 😊. I consider myself to be a sugar addict, in that I will eat candy or cookies even when I don‘t even really want them. But when I went cold turkey, there was a rough period, but I was shocked at how little I craved sugar once that period was over. 2w
Blaire #stacked it really is amazing how addicting sugar is...I will check this out in hoopla. 2w
Cinfhen I think you‘ll enjoy the audio @Blaire and it‘s an absolute eye opener in a beneficial way!! 2w
Cinfhen I‘m VERY much addicted to sugar @AlaMich I‘m constantly wanting something sweet / from the minute I wake up until I go to bed. Did u return to your cravings after the 21 days??? Are you able to resist sugar now??? (edited) 2w
AlaMich @Cinfhen When it ended I loosened up a bit, and then about two weeks later a lot of LIFE happened. And continued to happen. But I learned a ton from the experience and I‘m planning to do it again in the next month or so. I‘m thinking that it‘s going to need to be permanent; I know that I‘m not someone who can just have a little piece of chocolate to satisfy a craving. It only makes the craving worse. 2w
Cinfhen I think that‘s going to be me @AlaMich the girl who needs to avoid chocolate & sweets FOREVER because I can‘t stop once I start but I‘m getting too far ahead of myself. Today is day 5 and my migraines are bad!!! I‘m hoping it‘s from the absence of sugar and it‘ll pass quickly. And as far as LIFE goes, I hope things are quieting down / I tend to NOT eat when LIFE happens but once things return to “normal” I run right back to sweets 🍫 🍪🍩🍰🥧🧁 2w
AlaMich @Cinfhen I‘m so sorry about your migraines. The book I used did say that you might experience a variety of physical symptoms in the beginning. 2w
AlaMich It‘s pretty hard to imagine not being able to reward myself with chocolate or other treats whenever I‘m anxious or angry, since I pretty much use it to soothe myself. But I will have to adjust. We can do it!!! 2w
Hooked_on_books Don‘t tell your friend with the candy display that you read this one! 😂 2w
Cinfhen Ha!!! OMG , I‘m sure it‘s because of them I‘m now going through a candy detox @Hooked_on_books 🤪 2w
