going cold-turkey for Thanksgiving

OK. So Thanksgiving was last weekend. And I’m not American. Both are minor details. I think my heading sounds catchy.

More importantly, first-things-first.

I need to kick my sugar habit.

I’ve spoken often enough about how it is probably the single biggest factor behind my weight-gain (and most likely your extra lbs too).

But for a better understanding you would do well to read (or re-read as I have done many-a-time) the book called Sweet Poison by David Gillespie. It does a much better job of explaining it all than I could ever hope to do.

Now some people find it best to slowly ween themselves off the white stuff. Others – like me – prefer to go cold-turkey.

It’s a personal preference but I know I’m more likely to succeed in breaking the cycle if I take an all-or-nothing approach.

Yet that is perhaps a reflection of my personality as well.

Either way, I find it necessary to be completely determined to achieve a result, rather than putting in a half-hearted effort. Otherwise I know I’m more likely to lapse.

So my mind is set.
