Yarn Along

I’m still reading Game of Thrones, but you don’t want to see another picture of it, do you? I didn’t think so. I’m still working on Jill’s scarf too, though I didn’t get much work done on it last weekend or this week. Today’s photo reflects a trip I took yesterday morning to PFP mecca Green Apple Books. For the last two weeks I’ve been working on eliminating sugar from my diet – mainly just to see how I feel, and to find out if the change has any impact at all on my chronic pain issues. Last week I went four days without a hitch – barely even missed it – but then on Friday when I slipped and had a cookie that one cookie set off some crazy chain reaction and I have done nothing but think about sugar ever since. I headed off to Green Apple yesterday morning needing not so much diet books (though I bought one of those) but first-person narratives of others who have made this change, and I came away with The Paleo Cure and Eve O. Shaub’s Year of No Sugar, which I hope to devour (ideally without washing them down with Coca-Cola) later this week and this weekend. And I will get more knitting done then too.

Happy Wednesday!

    I have been cutting way back on added sugar, and I haven’t noticed any life changing reactions other than a better diet. However, my nephew cut out added sugar at one point and got a lot healthier. He said he avoided it like poison. Now he still maintains a mostly sugar free diet, but how can you completely when your beloved Granny loves to bake cookies for you? In general, I think cutting sugar means you end up eating healthier foods, which can only be a good thing. In other words, there is no real downside to cutting out added sugars. Aside from missing sugary tasty things.

    Totally agree on the “the more sugar/carbs you have the more you want” thing. It’s some awful addictive brain chemistry thing. I’m interested to see what you learn.
