Sugar is Sabotaging Your Diet
As of yesterday (May 4, 2017), I am down 19.4 pounds! Today is day 18 of my sugar free lifestyle and I think it’s safe to say that it’s working and I’m seeing results. I’m seeing results like I haven’t seen before. It’s astonishing to me that I am close to 20 pounds lost in less than 20 days – THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE!! In the past, it would have taken at least 2 months of really, really hard work for me to achieve these kinds of results. If you’re trying to lose weight and you’re not very successful, I think sugar is sabotaging your diet and it’s making it hard for you to lose any considerable amount of weight because of all the negative shit sugar does to your body.
Like I’ve said before, I’ve been on MANY different diets (Keto, South Beach Diet, CICO, Paleo, juicing, fasting, detox, low fat… etc) and I wasn’t successful on any of them (or I was for a little bit but ended up falling off the wagon and never picked myself back up again) and now I know the main culprit as to why I wasn’t losing the weight or when I lost the weight, I gained it all back and that culprit was SUGAR. Sugar sabotaged my diet and sugar is sabotaging your diet as well.
I’m 37 years old and I’m just now coming to this realization. I wish I knew this when I was younger because I would have started this lifestyle change a long time ago and I wouldn’t have had to go on crash diets or any other fad diets – all I had to do was eliminate sugar. I mean, sure, the information about sugar has been out there for awhile and didn’t just appear last week… I think I probably just didn’t pay any attention to it because I scoffed at the notion of going sugar free. I always correlated sugar free diets with unhealthy, diabetic people. “I don’t need to eliminate sugar from my diet because I don’t have diabetes”… “The sugar free candy is disgusting, I can’t go on this diet”… had I taken the time and did some research, I would have known that sugar free was the way to go. I would have known that I was the unhealthy person because I was consuming sugar.
I am 18 days strong with this lifestyle change and I haven’t faltered once. In the past, I would have been weak and cheated at least one time and if not, more. I would have made up excuses as to why I was allowed to have a cheat day and eat a ‘forbidden’ food. I was too weak. Sugar is my kryptonite. It did everything it could to sabotage my diet just so I would keep going back for more. Not this time. I don’t need cheat days. I don’t need excuses. I don’t need any reasons to be eating the poison. I don’t need sugar as a reward. I don’t need sugar for energy. I don’t need sugar for my foods to taste good. I don’t need sugar for comfort. I don’t need sugar at all and either do you.
I am not a health expert. I am not a scientist. I am not an author of health/diet books. I am just a 37 year old male who needed to make some lifestyle changes and did a shit ton of research into sugar and realized it’s a poison and it’s not needed to survive. I made the lifestyle change and eliminated all sugars from my diet and I’m seeing results. I’m seeing positive, noticeable results. I am feeling better. I am looking better. I am thinking clearer. And now I want to pay it forward and let as many people know about how sugar is sabotaging your diet and your whole lifestyle.
I am a small voice who wants everybody to know that sugar is poison and it’s killing them. If you’re reading this, you’re probably looking for a lifestyle change as well and I really hope I made a case but if I didn’t, I have more posts about Sugar and if you don’t want to take my word for it, Google will give you hundreds of thousands of search results on the topic and maybe they can help convince you to eliminate all sugars from your diet.
I’m going to keep making posts on this topic and you can follow me on my journey. I will be uploading before/during and eventually after pictures of myself along the way. If I can inspire at least one person to make this lifestyle change, I’ll be happy. But I don’t want to stop there. I want to keep going and inspire millions of people to make this change. That’s my goal and I’ll do what I can to achieve it.
Stay tuned and keep checking back because I’ll be updating regularly. If you’re tired of feeling like shit, ditch the sugar and come on over to the sugar free side! It’s awesome over here!
If you start a sugar free lifestyle, good luck and be ready to fight those urges for the first couple days until they disappear and be vigilant with reading all labels to ensure no hidden sugars are added to your foods – if there is, find a sugar free alternative. If you need tips, advice, words of encouragement or a supporter, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll help you fight this battle! Just remember, sugar is sabotaging your diet and you need to make a change.
Until next time, take care!
