Hey there folks,
I made it!
No sweets for two weeks!
It wasn’t even that hard. I had practically no cravings, except on two occasions: last week, when my wife baked an apple pie and yesterday, when a colleague of mine opened a fresh box of soft cakes (my favourites).
BTW, here’s what I count among sweets:
- Any kind of candy
- Any kind of cakes
- Any kind of biscuits or cookies
- Any kind of (sweet) pastry
- Any kind of ice cream
- Any kind of fruit yoghurt
- Any kind of dried fruit (figs, dates…)
- Honey, agave or maple etc. syrup
- Or any other food that has more than ca. 6g of sugar per 100g
I normally eat fresh fruit very rarely if at all (instead I really enjoy eating vegetables), but if we include an apple or a banana in the above list – oh, well – then I failed miserably. I ate an apple AND a banana this week. Hm…
Obviously, I haven’t simply decided to stop eating sweets out of nothing. The true reason is – I want my (long gone 🙂 six-pack back!
I mean, if someone has managed to quit smoking, stopped drinking alcohol, doesn’t drink any coffee and doesn’t eat any bread for years AND now also says goodbye to the sweets – getting back a six-pack shouldn’t be a ‘mission impossible’ now, should it?
Next milestone: one full month without sweets!
Stay tuned, I’ll keep you posted!
