Everyone has their “go to” food when feeling down. Mine is not only what makes me happy but what creates body pain. Sugar. It starts in the morning with a large chai tea from the gas station and when I wake in the middle of the night. I am not hungry it has just become a pattern. I eat sugar foods when I am feeling tired or depressed.
I have decided to start a 21 day sugar detox program. This isn’t the first time that I have gone off sugar. It was not easy but the results were so worth it. It showed on the outside because I lost weight and inches but that wasn’t the best outcome. My daily body aches, pains decreased and less fatigue. I stopped eating healthy and added my sugar when my Grandma became ill and was in hospice. I would sit by her bedside as she slept eating out of a can of whipped vanilla frosting.
I am working with a Lifestyle Coach. It may seem strange that as a Fibromyalgia Advisor I would need a coach. Everyone needs support from others who are trained in helping in specialized areas.
Am I looking forward to it? No, It is not going to be easy but I am ready to make a change. Stay tuned to see my daily posts during the 21 day sugar detox program.
