I had a lovely Easter, I didn’t over eat like I thought I would. Well I had planned to start cutting sugar out of my food straight after. It is going well so far, I have used syrup/honey in place of sugar in my baking which has actually turned out really yummy. I was already on the road to sugar free late last night when I started using sweetner in my coffee.
However, it has not been easy considering the fact I have got a sweet tooth. I have cut down on the sweets but the soft drinks which I have only at the weekends may be hard to cut out completely. I still have sugar-based foods in my cupboards, once I have eaten all that I will buy alternatives.
If I am being completely honest with myself I don’t think I can completely take sugar out of my diet, I can in cooking but not all snacks. Let’s face it there are some foods that taste vile without sugar, let’s not go there. Another thing, some of the alternatives are very expensive so there will be some foods that I will either use a combination of sugar and alternative to even out the measurements.
When I am out and about it is impossible, I will still want to eat with my family and friends.
