Most times, I went back to bad habits just because I ended up snacking (before noon) on either cookies, ice cream or chocolate.
I've experimented enough with nutrition and diet to know that if there is one thing I should change in my dietary habits, it's the intake of sugar.
Starting today I will experiment for 21-days the complete removal of sugar and simple carbohydrates from my diet.
I find that having a fixed duration for such a challenge makes it much more easy to accomplish (compared to "quitting forever")
Benefits will include:
Less attachment to foodstuff, more clarity, more energy, less sloth and torpor when meditating (!!), better sleep.
Some tricks to help me in the first few days:
- Have a bunch of fruits on hand in case of severe craving
Introduce more vegetables to each meal
Spend more time outside walking
It can be much easier when we progress together!
