Please keep this kind of humor out of this thread as it will take away and weaken the focus of those who are serious.

Or just have some will power.

I've maintained a consistent workout regimen for a decade, have been approximately 12-15% body fat for the last 15 years at 6'1, 180-190 lbs, have never touched a cigarette, and haven't consumed alcohol in over a month. I can't remember the last time I had candy or soda. Dessert last Christmas, maybe.

Discipline in my life started before August 1st, 2019. It will continue past August 31st, 2019, so my willpower is just fine.

Congrats? You are still mentally weak if a meme of kramer from seinfeld throws you off center. Keep doing you though, bro.

Sorry man, I totally misinterpreted your original comment. I wasn't reading closely and thought the willpower comment was directed at me. Apologies.

Day 1 near complete and sugar cravings are strong as expected. Green tea seems to help. Sugar cravings will go down quite a bit after a few days. Have to stick it out till then. The results will be worth the efforts. Keep at it.

Count me in. I am adding on eating more vegetables, less processed foods to the challenge.

Day 1 in the books - some longings but did not cave. I'm not being fully committed on "no added sugar" - will avoid the most egregious (cookies, cake, candy) but one of my go-to snacks are granola bars with chocolate chips - have boxes and boxes backed up and will allow myself these while sticking to my own self imposed limits (hopefully)

Problem is the granola bars will stimulate your sugar cravings. I would try to leave them out -- it is only for the next 29 days.

A chocolate chip granola bar is 30% sugar by weight, higher than most cookies and cakes. It's difficult to find a less appropriate food for no sugar month, except maybe candy (50% sugar)

Day one gud. Bread I'm buying is Dave's killer bread. Expensive but worth. No sugar in it really. Stopped drinking mountain dew and have been sweetening bitter gas station coffee with Amber agave nectar instead that I keep in my truck. Nofappi g so far is going good. Craved the sweet release of endorphins last night after working a 11 hour day but refrained.

Day three almost done. It is amazing how better ones feels after only a few days of no sugar, porn or fap. Still 28 days more to go.

My no sugar resulting in me over eating. Now I have to try and cut down calories.

The wife of a friend made banana bread for a little party they had tonight. She made it because she knew it was my favorite, I had a couple slices to be polite. The sugar avoidance is difficult. Apart from that I had a fruit cup, apparently those are full of syrup, very frustrating how easily a bunch of trash sugar can just slip in where you don’t expect it.

I’ve been fighting some pretty demonic sex urges but I’ve kept it under control so far. Getting out of the house helps.

Pour cold water over your genitals. The longer the better. Heat is what creates boners. Just cool them off. It is science and it works.

I’m doing no fap no corn syrup. I eat healthy already though.

So far so good but I already do some variation of this(I try to avoid corn syrup but occasionally eat out and get it then .

Been feeling the pull of porn and indulged in viewing but not more than that. Sugar wise, had a pris fixe 4 course meal Saturday which included peach melba and indulged on the scoop of vanilla ice cream, trying to stay the course

I’m going to drop a datasheet on how to avoid sugar for you guys.

Hell I should drop a full on eating guide.

Please do.

Anyways I've had two beers Saturday night which was the first time I've drank in 14 days, and I had ice cream with a date the other day and a smoothie with another one. Not terrible considering my sweet tooth, my main goal has mostly been to consume fruit and do not eat refined sugar in excess, ice cream on a date wont kill me.

No fap and no porn for 4 days now. Off my benzos for 15 days now(only use for chronic insomnia).

We have pretty well completed 7 days now. I feel good and ready for week 2.

Who has made it so far? Congrats if you have.

Write your name below - this is will you accountability.

Share your experiences and if you are also ready for week two.

Also write your name if you are new and will join for the remainder next three weeks.

And also write your name if you quit the program and why you did. What problems did you have.

Sharing experiences will help others keep going. Good luck.

This challenge is... extremely painful.
For you.
You merely adopted the sugar free no jerk off life. I was born in it... One might even say moulded by it. I didn't jerk the chicken until I was already a man and by then it was nothing but blinding.

Pretty solid on no added sugar (as I define it as sugar is literally everywhere) - one slip up with ice cream dessert as part of a pix fixe meal. No porn has been a failure - started indulging daily after three days - it is a compulsion. No fap I am still on course.
