This will be my own step-by-step challenge to get rid of that and improve health, strength through more food awareness.
I intend to add a step each week, until I reach manageable/optimal diet.
My first step in the right direction:
reduce sugar in my diet.
yummy baked goods - muffins, quickbreads, cakes occasionally, coffee, chai, candied ginger, chocolate
no more than 10 - 12 teaspoons sugar per day. It used to be the recommended amount... I understand that the current recommendations are even more strict.
How to get there:
reduce sugar in coffee
less baked goods / account for each
I know from experience that by doing so I will have a lesser need to sweeten food. The taste buds become more sensitive over time and something that I may readily eat now, will become way too sweet to enjoy.
