It’s been 5 days since the end of my 28 Day Sugar Detox. I was absolutely annoyed and frustrated during those 28 days because I had to change my entire diet because I only ate sugary foods.
I managed to make it through though. I went 28 days without eating anything with processed sugar in it. I snacked on fruits instead of cakes and cookies and I ate sandwhiches instead of cereals. Once it was done I figured I’d go all in on a binge back to my regular sugar habits and I was afraid to go to the grocery store but I realized that I had to face my fear.
Just 2 days after my sugar detox ended, I walked into the McDonald’s across the street and I ordered an icecream cone. Yes, that delicious, soft serve cone that I had been lusting after for 28 days was now in my hand. I took a quick lick. And then another. And then…What the hell?
I don’t want this. I want some frozen grapes.
I was dumbfounded.
What happened to my icecream cone? Why doesn’t it taste good anymore?
I waited 2 more days and I went to the grocery store to load up on cereal. I chose the most sugary sweet one I could find, Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I was eager to get my sugar fix.
I went home, made a bowl with delicious WHOLE milk and then I sat down to enjoy my evening. I took a spoonful and put it in my mouth.
This tastes horrible! I want a plum!
I want a plum!
What happened? Why doesn’t sugar taste the same? It’s not good enough for me anymore. All I want is fruit.
What happened to my sweet tooth?
