I started the day off so well with a meat and bone marrow soup...and then...

Feel a bit disgusted with myself right now.

I had been doing so well, too.

Im going to wake up tomorrow with like 3 or 4 giant zits...

On the plus side, tomorrow is a new day, a clean slate.

Today marks 25 days completely refined sugar (ice cream, chocolate etc.), bread, and junk food free

As someone who has been trying to quit refined sugar almost daily for about 3 to 4 years - I can't tell you guys how worth it it is.

You spend less money, you feel better inside (mentally and physically), your skin clears up, and you obviously lose fat/look leaner.

If you guys achieve one thing in 2019 - do this.

Nice. Congrats for finishing 25 days without refined sugar. I have been steadily cutting sugar from the diet (no sugar in coffee etc.), as I suspect I may have diabeetus (runs in the family).

Starting today, I am going cold turkey on sugar, processed foods that may contain sugar.

This thread is an inspiration. Much like many others, I have no problem cutting alcohol, however sugar has been a devious opponent. I have gotten in the habit of reading ingredients for everything I buy. The unknown (downright toxic stuff) that we have been putting in our bodies is absolutely sickening.

RE: The No Sugar & Junk Food Thread, For Those That Are Serious About Quitting
I stopped eating junk food almost 2 years ago. I've had patches (mostly a few days over the 3 years) where I've eaten crap but by and large it's been real foods only.

I went cold turkey after eating too many sweets in one sitting and that was it. Never looked back. In the last few days I've really taken my diet to new levels and have cut out all breads and peanut butters which I've been wanting to do for a while now.

I don't use any oils, butter, condiments or anything. Just plain food and fruits as a snack. I love my diet. Don't be afraid to turn your back on junk food forever. I actually get a near ecstatic feeling when I'm eating things like oranges now.

For those of you who want to get leaner without doing any extra gym work, this is for you.

So true.

I'm close to day 30 now, and having a banana now is a similar sensation to what having a chocolate bar used to be like.

Someone I know literally would not believe me when I told them that the other day.

Awesome to hear there are guys that have gone years without refined sugar based foods and junk foods.

I'm going to be aiming to do the same.

When you fail on your plans to quit sugar.... its easy to fail big.

Saturday night I broke down an ate 3 little bags of mini cookies that have been taunting me from a shelf for a week.... then I ended up eating 3 packets of nutella and some cracker sticks.... then I felt like absolute shit. It's like a junkie or alcoholic relapsing, its quite scary.

I'll share this here as well since the story stems from my sugary confession in this thread

(01-09-2019 06:21 PM)Cr33pin Wrote:  I've never bought Nutella in my life... never searched for it online. However there was some in the house I'm currently staying in and I binged on it and then confessed my sins in the "No sugar and Junk food" thread 45 mins ago and I typed that nutella was one of my sins.

Then I open Amazon to order some conditioner for my beard and guess whats the first item recommended for me on the home page....... anyone.... anyone care to guess? NUTELLA

In other words, I think its important to have some rewards and not to feel that we can't eat any bad food or sugar at all.

The concept of cheat days is something I find a bit difficult to understand. So you're setting some days aside to reward yourself for staying off a behaviour you're trying to quit, with the same behaviour you're trying to quit. As an adult do you really need that kind of positive reinforcement?

RE: The No Sugar & Junk Food Thread, For Those That Are Serious About Quitting
Half a month in, so far has been tough in the beginning with cravings, now those are more occasional. I still eat a lot of fruits (mostly apples, kiwis and oranges), just no junk food or added sugar. Haven't lost any weight I think, mental clarity might be a bit better. Have been sleeping and dreaming a lot more but that might be more related to No fap. I think I will need to evaluate on a longer time frame, so far not much difference.

Btw you guys eat those 0% sugar things that might have aspartame or other sweeteners? For me I do but only for protein shakes and for these jelly things which have 10calories a cup. Aspartame doesn't spike your glycogen so I guess it works, but probably unhealthy for many other reasons. Better to limit it as well.

To be honest for mine it's more about enjoying life. I don't eat the bad things because they're bad for me, I eat them because they taste fucking great and I enjoy eating them. I want to avoid them because they're bad for me, especially in significant quantities.

Always reminds me of this joke when people go hardcore and cut everything out:

I recently turned 65 and had to choose a new primary care physician for my Medicare program.

After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing "fairly well" for my age.

A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, "Do you think I will live to be 80?"

He asked: Do you smoke tobacco or drink alcoholic beverages?"

"Oh no," I replied. "I don't do drugs, either."

"Do you have many friends and entertain frequently?"

"I said, "No, I usually stay home and keep to myself".

"Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?"

I said, "No, my other doctor said that all red meat is unhealthy!"

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?"

"No, I don't," I said.

"Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?"

"No," I said. "I don't do any of those things."

He looked at me and said, "Then why do you want to live to 80?




That said I'm now at 10 days and counting. Had a genuine test today as went to the nearby supermarket that stocks all my favourite things, proudly walked out with nothing but the toothpaste I went in for (well, toothpaste at least). Was also craving a pizza for dinner but successfully went down the salad path instead. Little wins.

Still finding avoiding soft drink to be relatively easy but the chocolate cravings are real.
