    30 Sugar Free Day's

    Ok you nutty looking specs-wearing bird, where the hell is this website?

    Or where do I download the book?

    I'm seriously FAT these days and need to do something about that too.

    Now that I'm over two months AF I think I need to move on these other issues and sugar is a biggie.

    But I need the lists everyone is talking about.

    I should have known DEEBS with her whips about would get me going....

    :b&d:

    Oh, I wouldn't have joined if it wasn't free LOL!! There are an incredible amount of "sugar free diets" on offer if you google it but they ALL require some form of payment which was why this one appealed to me even more -- it's a bit like MWO. If you want to subscribe you can and get additional benefits, but you don't have to.

    30 Sugar Free Day's

    Here is some info from the site.....

    Sugar is harmful: Despite what the sugar industry and medical associations are saying, sugar is harmful. It is harmful in three ways:

    Adds Weight: As discussed above, sugar adds pounds to our bodies. This causes harm to our bodies because being obese or overweight increases a number of diseases: diabetes , stroke, heart disease, certain cancers and many more diseases. Obesity cuts life expectancy by as much as five years.
    Insulin Insensitivity: Consistently high blood sugar lead to the cells throughout the body becoming insensitive to insulin. This insulin insensitivity is at the heart of diseases such as metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Having diabetes, by the way, can clip as many as 10 years off your life and, maybe as many as 18 quality years off your life.
    Toxic: Sugar is toxic to our blood vessels, much the same way that cigarette smoke is toxic to our lungs. As sugar flows through our blood stream, it destroys the very blood vessels that carry the sugar throughout our bodies. This destruction is easily seen in people who have poor blood sugar control (like diabetics) who have high rates of eye disease (retinopathy), kidney disease, heart disease, nerve disease (neuropathy), and strokes, all caused by the destruction of blood vessels. The destruction also occurs in people who don’t have diabetes, only at a slower rate.
    There are many reasons why you will want to join us on our sugar free adventure:

    Sugar is addictive:
    For many of you who read this blog regularly, you know just how powerful sugar addiction can be. Sugar often feels like it has the power to control us instead of the other way around. Sugar addiction shares common traits with all addictions, including: hoarding, binging, using the addiction to change moods, and many other addictive-like behaviors. Seeing sugar as an addiction explains a lot of how we act around sugar and is likely the reason why so many of us yo-yo diet. If you really don’t think sugar is addictive, try staying away from it for a few days and see; most people become acutely aware of just how addicting sugar can be when they remove it from their lives.
    You Want to Feel Better: Kicking sugar and eating a sugar free diet will be hard at first. But most people who are on the diet report that they feel better, have more energy, and even sleep better. Many people also report the almost magical disappearance of stomach problems, fatigue, depression, sinus infection, skin problems and more.
    Weight loss: Sugar has more to do with weight gain than you might have been led to believe by medical and nutritional professionals. Sugar does contain empty calories, but sugar is also special in its ability to add to your waistline. Your body has certain energy needs and once those needs are met by what you are eating, any excess sugar in your blood stream is going to be stored as fat. Excess sugar is very common when you are eating sugar and foods that act like sugar on a consistent basis. Keeping sugar out of your diet keeps your blood sugar low and, consequently, keeps your body from storing fat.

    Yes, i forgot to add that to my plan....
    I will only weigh myself today and at the end of the 30 days -- it's not my sole aim to loose weight, but any weight lost will be greatly celebrated.
    I will measure myself once a week to see if there is any change there.
