Day three: feeling awful

8 Jan

Its day three on the no sugar regime and I’m feeling really good about my progress. There has been biscuits, cake, chocolate and muffins at work, Somehow I have said no to everything. That’s unbelievable for me! I’m absolutely delighted.

Unfortunately I feel sick. I’ve got chills aches and pains, I feel like I’m getting a cold. its awful I’m also lethargic, tired and freezing all the time. I’ve read on some blogs that this could be due to not eating sugar. I really wasn’t expecting these symptoms at all because I’ve been eating dairy and natural sugars. Having said that almost everybody I’ve come into contact with in the last few days has got a cold of some sort So it could be just a simple infection.

Either way I’ve been doing great. I started thinking that maybe I’ll allow one sugary treat a fortnight but I don’t know if that plan would backfire on me and I’d wind up completely fallen off the wagon . At the same time I think a little bit of flexibility will help me to continue with the regime in the Long-term.

Once the no sugar becomes comfortable for me I think I’m going to Start cutting out more processed foods from my diet and replace them with healthy home-made alternatives. This is all very much in the future, I’m still finding stopping sugar very difficult!!!!

All I can do is keep on trying!

    How you’re feeling could also be the ‘withdrawal’ symptoms of going off processed sugar cold turkey instead of gradually decreasing your intake. Good on you for doing this though. I’m sure your body will thank you for it 🙂

  3. Keep up the great work! Make sure you drink lots of water, include a bit of lemon water to detoxify and try warm comforting teas like green tea to help your aching body. (I hope you’re not coming down with the good old flu)
