Sainbury and Lena
I have a friend who owns a bread making machine. You pour in the flour and the seeds and in a few hours you have your own bread. I live in Greece and here people have a very low demand on healthy foods. I cannot find anything in the supermarket that can agree with what i am doing.
The last few days have been a chase. Right when i think i did not consume sugar that day i will find through research that i was mistaken. The elimination process is brutal and i am starting to see that if i really want to do this i will have to start cooking my own food and baking my own bread. Really just as i write these lines food is ready, It is Spaghetti........(enough said) with fresh tomato, onion and tuna for a sauce. I don't eat tuna but tonight i will have to try.
About the bread(I cannot LIVE without bread) i would like to know if there's anyone here that bakes their own bread here also. Are there any good recipes around that might produce some good no sugar bread for me?
Sainbury, is there a place where i might get educated about what to avoid when checking labels? Even when i look at labels i don't know what's good and what's bad. For example there are many names for sugar out there and if one doesn't know he could easily be on sugar and thinking that he isn't. I don't want any surprises like that. How did you learn the distinguishing process?
Also i read what stevia is on wikipedia and it sounds great but is it safe? I hope i can find some here because it says it grows on tropical climates.
About meat now, i do realize the moral reason of eliminating meat from one's diet, but in terms of keeping true to the no sugar diet is meat an obstruction?
It takes a good 4-6 months before you see a difference. But in the end it does make a big change. One day my head was perfectly clear for a few hours. The feeling came and went for the next month until it was that way all the time. You will find that once your system adjusts your body will tell you very quickly what it doesn't like. I have given up a lot of favorite foods that way. Usually with me it is a blinding headache.
Besides meditation, what else does that clear state of mind help you do? Do you have better memory? Better processing capabilities? Can you do more complex math? Is your awareness better? Are your senses in general enhanced by the clarity of your head?
How did your friends take it when you first told them that you would quit sugar? Did they look at you like you were an alien? What justification did you give them(Or did you tell them the truth?). Lately my friends are telling that i am getting very weird. I guess i am.
