Decreasing sugar intake


Hi my Readers
Another inner-beauty related post. This one is going to be about sugar intake. The processed one.

As someone that used to drink the coffee with 3 and a half teaspoons of sugar, now I can see that that was kind of addiction to sugar. Once I’ve noticed that, I tried to decrease it. It wasn’t easy but I did it.

How I started

I tried Natreen – it took some getting used to but it was helping. I don’t remember how much I was taking but it was a lot – which was still bad. But over time – I decreased it so much that eventually started to drink my coffee without sugar. Tea – also without sugar anyway because with sugar you can’t taste the real smells and aromas of it.

If I knew about stevia which I think is way better than natreen because it was natural, I would have tried that instead.

How I continued it

Was eating everything else. Unprocessed sugars were more than OK. I ate cakes, chocolates and sweets. As long as I didn’t ate too much it was OK because my body didn’t crave it as much as it was.

After that? 

I’ve noticed that I wasn’t craving sugar anymore. I made different kind of coffees and were perfectly ok for me to drink them without any sugar.

I noticed that my body changed and didn’t look like I was bloated anymore. My hands weren’t looking as chonky 😀 and my face din’t look as puffed. I also seen difference on the side of my waist and the stomach.

Why Am I writing this now: 

Because I’ve noticed that> I started drinking my coffee with ice cream (I drank a lot because I was working, constantly chugging coffee to keep me energetic and started adding ice cream to cool it down faster so I cat just chug it right away). I also started to put little amounts of chocolate in my instant coffee. Since then, I started wanting sugar more and more. I’ve noticed that it is starting to affect my mass and with this isolation thing going on – it is very noticeable to me.

Lately, since I can’t turn to natural remedies that help my energy, I started using coffee as substitution to them and I’m not enjoying as I used to. I decided to dial it back and make it an event, rather than just an energy boost.

Something to keep in mind: 

It is not considered good to cut it all at once because it can cause shock to the organism.

With this I am sharing a photo that I did a while back that contains no edits or filters (only made it little for those with laggish devices to be able to open it – like I do for every photo I upload here and am aware that sometimes I compromise the HQ of the photo).
