I thought I’d start by discussing sugar; why it’s bad for you and how to manage those sugar cravings, especially if, like me, you indulged your sweet tooth over the holidays and are struggling to get it under control in the cold, dark days of Jan. I should preface this post with a confession; I’m a reformed sugar junkie. There were some dark days when I used to basically live off a combo of skittles and fruit pastilles, and even after I realised that was not a balanced diet, I was unable to kick the sugar habit so ended up drinking litres of fruit juice day in day out, thinking I was being healthy. So I know the pain that is a sugar addiction, the almost surreal energy highs, the slightly sick, spaced out feeling that signals the beginning of a sugar crash and the almost psychotic need to get your sugar fix from somewhere.
Even now, where, like a reformed drug addict, I never touch candy for fear of a relapse, I sometimes find myself, on busy days being fuelled …
