Officially days 2 and 3 without sugar. Hmmmm…headache, LOW energy, and fuzzy head. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, except what I have read and so far it is right on. It is hard to concentrate and although I don’t have the “flu-like symptoms” that some people report I just don’t feel like myself.
The good news is that it won’t last too much longer. I am dealing with any sugar cravings that I am having by eating whole, pure foods…protein, greens, lots of water and big flavors (salsa, onion, garlic, pepper). And when I want a snack I go for fruit or nuts; just not in large quantities. I am trying to listen to my body and not push too hard during my morning workouts as my energy isn’t really there. I am looking forward to the next few days.
