We’ve decided that we’re eating too much sugar at our house. I realised that I was eating lots of sneaky sugar – oranges, oranges, and more oranges, a bit of honey here and there – as well as more and more chocolate and ice cream treats. And I also realised that I was having sugar crashes several times a day.
So, we’re taking a break for a couple of months to see what happens. One and a half weeks in and I feel thoroughly lousy. And hungry. And I’m suffering from cravings. It’s like quitting smoking or some such. I had no idea.
The withdrawal symptoms could last a week. They could last a month. I’m crossing my fingers that they pass before I crack and fall off the wagon.
