Side Effects of Stopping Coffee and Sugar

Side Effects of Stopping Coffee and Sugar
I have not drunk coffee or had any concentrated sugar products in about 20 days; it is starting to feel like years.

I have less energy, a little out of sorts, there is no rush in eating, it is just eating to supply energy to my body.

No Processed Food Diet

I am losing weight, I do not continually crave food, and convenience stores are just about a waste of time to enter.

I gave up Alcohol Addiction about 20 some years ago, this feels the same, the obsessions, the games played in my head, and there is a constant need to confess to the commitment.

It has been rather easy, I had a moment in my mind, I do not like my body interfering with what I want to do, and I need to be in good shape. However, I never realized how many times I sought a sugar rush, a donut, a piece of candy, a soft drink.

I walked to the market this morning, ate a banana, it felt like pure sugar in my mouth, too strange.

I cannot remember what it is like to get high off Alcohol, I wonder how long before I forget the coffee or sugar rush.

I realize I must talk, tell people what I am doing, I cannot just do this alone, I must share, and I must commit to my friends, family and world that I gave up this Sugar rush.

Two inches or more on the waist in 20 days without trying is good enough for me; another 20 days and I will start to feel mean again.

Note, I had been thinking about going on this diet for about 20 years, I first envisioned it 20 years ago, no processed foods. However, the sugar, salt, coffee and a myriad of other rules have been slowly defined in my head to not have slips or juicy rationalization excuse problems.

I am very grateful the craving of food is minimal; I may be a normal primitive human again, not developed to a level of inadequacy.

I feel sorry for the reader of my blog, I blog about what I am thinking about, this could go on for the next year until my mind fully accepts it has given up the sugar and coffee.
