(I got in trouble for pairing my first No Sugar post with a picture of jelly doughnuts, so here is a much more appropriate picture of a big-ass chocolate sundae. Enjoy!)
We’re a week in to our first Slow Home Experiment now and (thankfully!) over the worst of the sugar hangover we were experiencing last week. But how are we feeling? What are we missing? What are we enjoying? What’s surprised us so far?
In this fairly relaxed episode (we were quite literally laying down) Ben and I chat about our recent bout of illness and whether we think it was related to giving up sugar, our thoughts after watching That Sugar Film and The Great Vodka Debate of 2016.
We both feel like we’ve broken the back of this challenge after the first week, and things are definitely starting to feel easier. I’m certainly eating in a much more mindful way and am far more aware of my tendency to procrasti-snack (it’s a real thing).
I’d highly recommend you watch That Sugar Film if you haven’t already, and if you’re struggling to stick to the experiment or a similar lifestyle shift, I’d also recommend you check out my interview with Gretchen Rubin from last week. She goes deep into our tendencies and why some people find it easier to stick to new habits, and how to embrace your personality traits and use them to stick to your positive life changes.
