Help! – Don’t Do This Diet Mistake Like I Did!

Do Over Pls!

Do Over Pls!

Doesn’t matter if you’re dieting or a weight loss post-op. There comes a time when you want some of those “never” foods that are forbidden to be within 500 yards of our caves. You know the ones. It could be sweets or salty foods depending on your tastes. For me it’s both. :(

I longingly ogle the ice cream in the freezer aisle in my local super market and then to seriously screw with my mind, I wander over to the junk food aisle.

Recently I was talking with a very good friend who likes to do a lot of baking. I asked specifically about her “Sugar free” pumpkin scones. She assured me that she added not sugar what so ever. She offered a small taste. They were so delicious and tasted just right from a sweet perspective. I asked her; “what was her secret instead of sugar?”

Sugar & Carbs – Monsters in the Closet

Sugar & Carbs

If you’re looking for a sure fire way of “deep sixing” your diet, then opening the closet and letting the sugar and carbs monsters out is the answer.  All of us as kids remember dragging the covers over our heads because we were absolutely positive we had our very own personal monsters – either under the bed or in the closet. As adults, most of those monsters disappear and they’re replaced with real ones. If you struggle with weight, YOU know what I mean.

Of all the eating monsters, sugar and carbohydrates are the worst. They hide everywhere and cause us the most damage. If you put Frankenstein, Dracula and the Werewolf together, Continue reading Sugar & Carbs – Monsters in the Closet
