|So happy for you.|
Well, it IS the third day of my diet but I still want to mention it because ho, this is haaaard.
|Do not want.|
Did you know sugar is in almost every fucking salad dressing? I also have to avoid sucrose, high fructose corn syrup (any form of fructose, really, including hateful bananas), simple carbs (because your body is all over that shit and starts digesting it before you even finish swallowing), sugar alcohols (goodbye, sugarfree gum), juice, ALL of it. I'm walking around with a jar of anise seeds in my purse so I could chew on those instead of gum. (Seriously, that is the allowed substitute.)
Why am I doing this, you might ask?
This one minute clip explains it:
I have tried to avoid sweets before but could never really pull it off long-term. After a not insignificant amount of reading about sweets (sugar lights up the same areas of the brain as heroin, FYI), willpower, and health, I decided to attack the issue at its source. I wanted to not want it. I do great at avoiding what I don't want. Like, veggies are awesome, I eat them all the TIME. But that's because I want them.
