The first two days were the hardest, and then of course random on and off again days that are tough. You don't realize how many things you eat have sugar, like flavored yogurt, cereal, granola bars, etc. And then when I wanted to try and sweeten things up, I couldn't because we can't use any sort of honey, agave, or artificial sugar!
Even though it has been tough, I feel really good about it. I have lost a couple of pounds which I didn't really expect to happen. but the thing that I feel has benefited me most is the self control I have had to have in order to do it. For me, it just feels good to have control over my mind and my cravings. I sound like a Buddha. I don't even know what that means, but I'm serious about the self control thing.
The thing that has helped me the very most with the craving is my protein shake in the morning. Seriously, I don't think I could make it out alive without it. Because guess what my friends? After lots of experimenting, I have come up with an amazing mint chocolate protein shake with no sugar. let's freak out together.
If you don't like mint, try this exact shake but leave out the peppermint extract to make it a chocolate banana shake which is absolutely amazing as well.
let me know if you try it and what you think. Enjoy!
ps. 4 days until the new T Swifty album. how's that for a treat, eh?
