Sugar-free?

So, I’ve decided, after talking with my friend Ashley, that I’m going to try cutting back on my sugar intake.   This is more of an experiment, if anything, to see how my body reacts  and in the process I may lose weight….which would be fine with me, but not necessarily the reason I’m doing it.  If you don’t know already, I’m intrigued by health and fitness and have change a lot of things about the way I treat my body in this last year.

Ever since watching Food Inc. and continuing in my own research, I am absolutely sold on eating organic.  I have tried my best to buy all my produce and meats locally and/or organic and it’s amazing that I actually feel better than I ever have.  On top of going organic on those things, I have also made exercising something I truly enjoy.  Both things have been extremely hard transitions, but have reaped such wonderful benefits for me.  I will not be giving up on those.   The sugar thing however…

So, apparently low-sugar  also  means low-carb, which essentially means I am experimenting with a diabetic diet. Which is funny and kind of crazy.   It’s amazing how many things actually have a ton of sugar or carbs.  Yogurt for instance.  I love yogurt. This is something that I always buy organic as well…but organic doesn’t mean low on carbs! FREAK!

I’m taking this a day at a time.  I’ll let you know how long it lasts. . .
