Podcast #10: Sugar Detox Results and Recap
I’m sure the anticipation has been killing you but our one-week sugar detox experiment is finally over (thank God) and you might be surprised to learn which Shorkey sister finished strong and which one failed miserably.
Apparently giving up sugar was a lot harder than we anticipated (even for those of us who’ve been on strict diets for many, many years.) And I can only say in my defense that I simply didn’t want to **completely** restrict myself because I do believe that banning entire foods or food groups only leads to that unhealthy “all or nothing” mentality which loves to keep us on that yo-yo diet roller coaster ride from HELL. And in all honesty, I’m OVER IT!
That’s my excuse for cheating on the sugar detox anyway…
In this recap episode, we also discover that apparently all three of us (Sam, Sarah and Erin) are severely addicted to coffee even more than sugar. Perhaps a future podcast episode/Shorkey detox experiment?
I also share the potential negative side effects of consuming too much stevia and our fave “sugar craving sweet buster” snack that really helped get us through the week.
Yeah that’s my hand. #GripStrength.
Anyway, I’m also dying to know how all of our participating listeners did in the “sugar experiment” so please comment below if you got in on the sugar detox action and if you had more discipline than I did.
