Chronic Inflammation and Sugar

My low sugar challenge is officially over.  Well, not totally over, hopefully it is a new lifestyle change for me.  During these last 12 days I have really focused on keeping processed sugar OUT of my diet.  It has not been easy, as a SAHM somehow little bits of sugar sneak into my diet everywhere.  My body had a "sugar inflammation" timeout.  My boys could [...]

No Sugar Challenge (Days 6-8)

I am changing my no sugar challenge to Low Sugar Challenge.  This is because I am still eating limited amounts of fruit and up to 1 tablespoon of raw honey daily.  Better than before, but not perfect.  No random cookies, treats, or milkshakes (usually leftovers from the kids).  I have learned over the last few days that I am not ready to take all forms [...]

No Sugar Challenge (Day 2)

I was going to wait a few days to write a post, but today was SUPER hard for me.  Why was today so much harder than yesterday?  I'm not too sure.  I could really tell a difference in my mood~ in a negative way.  I was super cranky with the kids, low energy, and felt depressed.  This is not like me to feel depressed- I [...]

No Sugar Challenge

I have decided to do a little no sugar diet for 2 weeks.  What? Crazy I know.  What sparked all this?   A Facebook page I found this morning.  This woman cut out sugar for 8 weeks and had amazing results.  Here is her fb page.  She suffered from hypoglycemia and an auto-immune disease.  I have these same issues in some form or another.  Check [...]
