I would LOVE to cut sugar out of my diet. I am ridiculously dependent on it and like most of you – I can’t just eat one cookie and back away. One cookie becomes 5 cookies and a couple pieces of chocolate and then chips or something salty to balance out all the sweet. It’s awful!

I have given up sugar and bread about two months ago and I am a vegetarian! I didn’t think I could do it, but it was easy after the first couple of days! Good luck! I just gave it up cold turkey and just went from that point on! 🙂

I slowly snuck off the diet that was prescribed for me after my daughter’s birth. Fiance and I are trying to re-implement it now. I eat no heavy carbs after 3pm unless its a race day the next morning (even a morning workout doesnt count). I eat extremely high protein, limited proccessed foods. I eat low fat, and keep my grains whole as often as possible. Every evening I do get a treat but we keep it a high protein treat after my meal with no grains. Last night it was greek yoghurt with all natural peanut butter. Tonights treat will be cottage cheese with raspberries.

In the morning I eat a carb and protein meal. This meal is my middle calorie meal with the lowest protein.

Lunch is my highest caloric intake. Its the highest in carbs, and middle in protein. I eat a fruit as dessert with this meal.

Afternoon I have a snack ratio 1/2 carb 1/2 protein. Today its rice cakes with all natural peanut butter, yesturday it was cottage cheese and tomatos. I like lara bars here too.

Dinner is meat and veggies or a salad. Sometimes some cheese too :). Tonight is spaghetti squash steamed veggies, shrimp with pesto and mozzerela. This is my lowest carb meal with highest protein.


After dinner: High Protein low sugar dessert.

Edited to add I’m also gluten free due to celiac disease.

The advice from a nutritionist I had was not to have the bad stuff (chips, chocolate, etc) in your house or desk.  If you want a snack have some veggies or fruit.  My problem is chips and I recently gave them up for Lent.  I gave up eating them years ago but they snuck back in eventually.  Chocolate and sweets has never really been a problem for me.  Switch to dark chocolate if you can.  A piece a day is actually shown to be good for you.
