Ultimately, my weight gain (1 kg in a week) was quite sobering. That’s because I didn’t plan my replacement activities well.
In response, this week’s challenge is all about cutting away the sugars (that means anything processed such as milkshakes, sodas, beers, ice-cream etc). The coffee bit arose because I was drinking up to three cups of Java Joe every day. Some say it’s OK, I think it’s damn controlling.
How Do I Complete This Challenge?
- Stay away from sugars!
Lots of things have sugar in them (e.g. bread, pad thai). I won’t be able to cut it out entirely, but I can minimise my exposure to them. Don’t put sauces or choose savoury over sugary sweet.
- Replacement Activities (in this case, food)
Eat small meals. Stay away from beers and deserts.
Drink green tea.
Leave $100 on the table if I do either.
