I couldn't give up sugar until sugar broke me. Thankfully the Januvia helps. My numbers are more normal, my appetite is curbed, and I'm feeling myself again.
I feel like an ex-smoker. Walking through Walmart, I can smell sugar everywhere. It's like a drug.
I love chocolate, so to not be undone, I made my own chocolate treat. I found out that dark cocoa powder no longer tastes bitter to me. I always wondered how the Aztecs could eat unsweetened chocolate. They didn't eat sugar, that's how.
