I have the biggest sweet tooth! And I know I’m not alone. It’s so easy to be attracted to sugary treats. As much as I love cookies and cakes, I’ve come to point where I simply want to have better over all health. Eating too much sugar has many harmful effects on metabolism and contribute to all sorts of diseases.
So about a month ago, I decided to make a it a goal to cut down on eating sugar. I’ll still never turn down dessert for a celebration! But my goal was to take most of the unnecessary sugar and bad carbs out of my diet on a day to day basis. So here’s my four week plan on how to stop sugar cravings and how I felt while I was doing it.

How I felt about week 1:
This week was certainly good practice for my self control. A few times, I did eat an extra cookie, but I didn’t let myself over indulge either. Learning self control was much more difficult than I thought, but it was a good lesson to learn and put into practice.

Week 2 – Stop eating sweet treats

During the second week, I planned to start cutting out obvious sugar culprits such as cookies, pop, candy etc. from my diet.

Like the first week, keeping a regular schedule 3-4 solid meals a day is important.
How I felt about week 2:
