I’ve come to realise that I consume way too much sugar. I sat down and thought about how much sugar I have per day and the results were terrifying.
Breakfast: A glass of juice – sugar
Mornings: 500mL of chocolate milk – sugar
Lunch: A glass of Coke – sugar
Afternoons: A 500mL bottle of Coke – sugar
Dinner: A glass of ice tea or Coke – sugar
Therefore starting today, I’m going to reduce the amount of sugar I’m consuming. I’m not going to cut out refined sugar entirely as I want to keep having the stuff I enjoy, but I need to keep it to a minimum. Therefore, the 500mL of chocolate milk and the bottle of Coke are gone. Once I finish my current bottle of juice it is also gone. I will keep (for now) the glass of Coke with lunch as the caffeine withdrawal would be brutal and I will reduce the amount of ice tea I have with my dinner.
Wish me luck, as not having my afternoon bottle of Coke to ward off the post-lunch slump is going to be tough.
