Patience and willpower are the key to success.
And let me tell you..I feel good. Really good. Honestly, I already can feel a difference. I looooove it.
But. I still miss sugar. Or the thought of it anyway. Thankfully there are some great alternatives to real sugar. No...not Splenda. These are much better than that stuff (I loathe Splenda..it's gross).
1. sugar snap peas
2. lara bars
I was introduced to these by a good friend who was living a sugar free lifestyle. She is obviously an awesome friend, because these are delicious! They have flavors like Apple Pie, Key Lime Pie, and Cashew Cookie. My fav is Cherry Pie. It tastes just like the real thing, but the best part is that they are made with fruits and nuts only. No added sugar..just natural sugar from the fruit. SO GOOD. (Disclaimer-make sure you read the ingredients, because on the Chocolate bars they do sometimes add Evaporated Cane Juice which is just a fancy way to say "sugar").

4. bear naked granola
One of the coolest things is to eat sweet stuff and still feel good. Our bodies are built to love sugar and sugar is made for us to crave it. So give your body what it wants, but in a much better, healthier way!
