There are a ton of diets out there: no dairy, no gluten, no carbs, no sugar, no fat….
This dietician wanted to eliminate all added in sugar, not the sugar naturally found in fruits, vegetables, grains or dairy. She went into this thinking it would be easy since she generally is a salt craver not a sugar craver. To her surprise, she failed on day one. She at some wholemeal crackers and believe it or not they contained sugar.
If you want to succeed in a diet that eliminates one ingredient you must be vigilant about reading all labels and don’t even consider going out to eat. You have no idea what restaurants are cooking with. And asking the waiter how something is prepared will get you at the minimum an eye roll.
When she got tired, like many of us, the self-control went away. It is very hard to stick to anything when you are tired.
