FOR ME, eating sweets means eating junk food and foods containing refined sugars. FOR ME, not being sweet means avoiding these types of food for a year. This works FOR ME.
I can eat apples and feel healthy. They don’t make me crash or binge. I will continue to eat fruit. I will continue to eat certain foods that others will say turns directly into sugar, such as a bagel with cream cheese. This works FOR ME.
However, if I were to eat a chocolate chip cookie then it’s just a matter of time before that’s all I’m eating. Everyone is different.
If you are trying to control your sugar intake, you should see a doctor or trained specialist. I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist. This website is a place for you to become inspired by my story and then to go and create your own reality. If you feel you can deal with sugar on your own, then I encourage you to define your own parameters.
Some folks need to quit everything. Others can eat a cookie a month and not go wrong. There is no one solution for everyone.
What I describe in these posts is my experience and the solution that is working for me.
By all means, do what you NEED to do and discover what’s right for YOU!

For me, not being sweet has become part of an overall simple and healthy lifestyle.
For instance, my bicycle is my car. My apartment building has a bike garage. Everything is within walking or biking distance and if not, there’s public transportation. The end result is that I bike at least 20 miles a week no matter if I’m in the mood or not. That means increased stamina, more sun and more fresh air. I ride a single speed which is both simple and more physically taxing. It also means a regular cardiovascular workout without paying for a cycling/spin class.
As a Tai Chi instructor I’m part of a community of people that work together to make our lives better by practicing something that makes us healthy. Soon I’ll begin practicing Yoga.
I am telling you this because I couldn’t do have done it eight months ago when I was eating lots of sugar. Eating healthier is one step in an overall approach to living a different kind of life. You have to change one step at a time.
What step could you take today?
No Sugar Momma
