I never realized how much sugar has ahold of me. I mean I think about it all the time. I even get anxious about it sometimes. It’s been about a month and a half now on my calorie counting adventure and I have struggles with my hunger pains for sweets. I am addicted to it. I can’t even pass by it without looking to see how many calories I can spare for that yummy piece of chocolate. Since day one I have been wanting ice cream. I don’t know why this is happening because I don’t eat ice cream that often, but every week I want it. Mmmm Ice cream. I feel like Homer Simpson with his donuts. I have been falling off the wagon a bit because of sweets. Last weekend, I had 1 slice of cake, 2 girl scout cookies (thin mints), 1 coca cola life 20oz bottle, a chocolate truffle here and there and many, many, mints.
I’ve noticed that the last couple of times I had more sweets then normal I would get migraines. I’m not 100% positive that is why I got the migraines, but it’s a pretty big coincidence.
Now that I know that I have a problem with sweets, what can I do about it?
Well for starters, I just thought of making my frozen fruit ice cream. I use to make this all the time. I take frozen fruit, ice, and stevia. Blend them together in a blender and eat it up. I don’t know why I haven’t thought of that sooner. Also I have been trying to end my meals with a fruit. The fruit is sweet and I’m hoping it keeps me from wanting to eat sweets. I also try to drink a coffee or water when I get a craving. It helps fill my stomach without all the calories. Breakfast or granola bars are a good sweet I like to use every now and then. So is honey. Sprouts sales little honey sticks for like 35 cents.
What do you do to trim out the sweets and curb your cravings?
