Podcast #10: Sugar Detox Results and Recap

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.

    At least one of you made it. I got about as far as Erin did. LOL!

    If you quit caffeine, Celeste, you will become my new hero!

    Hi Celeste!!! Awww thank you. That’s awesome!! We absolutely LOVE recording the podcast so it’s cool to know other people dig it too :) Also, you’ll be pleased to know that after my research on stevia, I cut it out completely and I’m now on day 5 no stevia or artificial sweeteners and I definitely notice better digestion and wayyyyyy less bloating and farting! And it really is true that since I cut it out, I’m actually really enjoying the REAL taste of a finely-ground, medium-roast organic coffee with steamed almond milk. In fact, I’m drinking one right now whilst I plan this week’s “poop podcast.” Standby and thanks for the support :)

    Oh my gosh! I think since competing I became total addict to artificial sweeteners including stevia which as research now supports means higher chance of weight gain because of those wanting neuro-receptors that never get their glucose hit and eventually find real sugar and go crazy! I totally want to try a total detox and honestly should have jumped on board. My plan though is to buy unsweetened sunwarrior, use banana and retrain my taste buds. I’ll start Monday, haha! Maybe… I’d rather quit, caffeine @ Sarah! And great job btw on your week! Love you guys’ podcast. You crack me up as I laugh at how true these episodes, 1 & 2 were!

    Well I’m proud to say that since the sugar detox episodes ended, I’ve actually been successful on a “no sugar” kick for a couple of weeks now! Apparently when no one is paying attention, I CAN do it. Go figure!
