How to get rid off my sugar addiction
I have a confession to make. I’m an addict. To a couple of things, but the one bothering me the most, is my addiction to sugar.
Even when I know how bad it is, even how healthy I eat, the sugar always finds a way back into my life again.
And my goodness, it is really bad. It makes me gain weight so easily.
I know what I need to do. And I’ve shown in the past I can lose that weight and create a healthy weight. But I gotta tell you, it still is hard.
So how come sugar is sooo bad for you and how come you really get fat by it?
The quick explanation: eat sugar, and the glucose enters your bloodstream, so insulin is activated to get it out and put it in cells to provide energy.
It’s not a preference, it’s a MUST. But: from every 100gr of sugar, only 50gr can be put into the cells for our daily activities. The rest is stored as fat, because our body is making sure we don’t die from a lack of energy source.
Anytime you eat new sugar, you burn no fat.
breakfast, lunch, diner, if it all contains sugar (or carbs in general to produce glucose) it will store half as fat. Damn!
So, I don’t eat breakfast anymore, in the hopes that my fasting can be stretched to about 14 to 18 hours. So it will start burning the fat because there is no new glucose coming in.
But the hard part is, that the body keeps asking for sugar. And since it’s in 90% of our food, it’s pretty darn hard to stay away from too much sugar.
It really comes down to no ‘cheating’, no processed food, whole food with low carbs.
And that’s easy said, but not so easily done.
I keep focussing on healthy foods because I know that works.
How do you handle something like this?
