Happy Easter!

Easter is a great time for renewal! I am going to use this as a time to renew my approach to nutrition. Starting tomorrow morning, I am going to eliminate sugar from my diet and see how my body reacts. So no processed sugar or fruit sugar. I will concentrate on lean proteins, lots of vegetables and occasional whole grain. I will include natural fats like avocado and olive oil.

Now, I do not eat much sugar, except for around holiday celebrations. But I am addicted to the flavor of sweet. So I will also eliminate the use of stevia, which I use in my coffee, tea and iced tea every day. I just want to see if I can do without "sweet".

Wish me luck...I will let you know how it goes!

Desire to eliminate an addiction to sweet. Dedication to my health. Discipline to at least try the experiment.

  1. Good Luck, Patty...Sweet is supposed to be our most naturally appealing flavor (think Mother's Milk...) I know you have the discipline to do it, though...Then, you can dive into summer fruit & really LOVE it!
