My boys played football this morning.
Afterwards they begged me to take them to Krispy Kreme.
I didn’t feel like lecturing them about how sugar harms our body.
Plus, I am easily manipulated.
So, I took them to Krispy Kreme.
One of them got a Cake Batter Doughnut:
I did not get a doughnut.
I did check the sugar content though.
26 Grams of Sugar in one of these babies.
I used to be able to eat a dozen of these.
The FDA recommends 23 grams of sugar per day.
I recommend zero refined sugar.
How did I beat the craving?
I was not angry with myself. I sat in gratitude and compassion. Grateful that I could spend time with my boys. Grateful that we were together. Grateful that I didn’t have to gorge myself.
And I silently meditated: http://www.sugarbroke.com/23-days-without-sugar-meditation-to-overcome/
