31 Days Challenge- Day 26: Try a Day Without Sugar
26 January 2012
A few months ago, I would have told you that I didn't really eat much sugar, that I didn't have a problem with sugar. Then I got gestational diabetes and I had to give it up- completely.
The first few days were soooo hard- I craved it so badly- I wanted sugar! Obviously, I wasn't doing quite as well when it came to sugar as I thought.
That's the reason for this challenge. By trying to cut out sugar, you'll be able to tell how dependent you or your kids are.
Look at each part of your kids daily intake: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, drinks... and TRY to have a day without any sugar (other than the natural sugars in fruits, etc).
Cutting it out for more than a day, can be extremely difficult and you will actually experience withdrawal so I would not suggest going without sugar cold turkey for longer than a day. However, if you realize that you and your family are more dependent on sugar than you thought, you may want to start cutting down on the sugar more gradually.
