I know I have done a post before on my love for sugar. What on earth makes it so appealing? All sugar is are little tiny white granules, oh but when they are mixed together with other crap the deliciousness they create is something wonderful.This needs to stop! I HAVE A PROBLEM! There, I said it. As I write this I am also saying it out loud. I need to admit this to myself, and work at rectifying this horrible hold it has on my life.
To put this into perspective I inputted
my food into a calorie counter to see what I eat in the run of a day. Today was a particularly bad day, but to be honest bad days happen more often than should be expected. The recommended daily amount of sugar is 20 grams which is 5 tsp. Well, my final sugar count for the day was 108 grams, and there is a possibility I am even missing a couple things. For instance those candies that are at work. I grab one here and there, and before I know it I’ve had ten! So, instead of having the recommended 5 teaspoons of sugar I ended the day with 27 tsp. Wow! That is scary, and very worrisome.
This is certainly going to be a work in progress. To tell you the truth I don’t even know what foods contain high amounts of sugar. Well, of course other than your expected foods like candy bars, yogurt, and preservatives. For the most part it is fairly common sense, and I will be eating a lot of vegetables and fresh foods instead of prepackaged foods.
I’m ready to commit and share my confessions, hurdles, and happy moments on this journey with you.
