Today is the first day of lent.
I am fasting sugar. Except of course when it happens to be in my Müsli. I bought/mixed a huge potfull* a couple of weeks ago without thinking, and can’t justify having to buy more to a guy who doesn’t get lent any more than I get Ramadan.
I’m also unpacking boxes, hopefully one (or more) a day. They might not keep the doctor away, but it might help the DB keep his sanity :).
* pretty good stuff, loads of oats, occasional raisins, nuts, bits of assorted dried fruit, crunchy bits of….uh, something crunchy, tiny chocolate sprinkles, and some of those horrible dried banana slices. I didn’t choose them, they came in one of the packets.

When you say sugar, are we talking all forms or just plain sugar?
All forms of ‘added’ sugar. Natural sugar, in fruit, veg etc, doesn’t count as sugar 🙂
Sounds like a good thing to give up :).
Sounds like you want to try it out 😉
Ha, I did something similar during one of my diets where I didn’t eat processed foods – like a caveman diet. Worked well, in fact so well my body thinks sugar is some sort of drug. I eat very few sugary things nowadays. I still enjoy them though!
