Today I am unsweetening my diet for more focus and attention.
The roller coaster of impulsive eating and sugar highs/lows does not do much for my ability to focus. What could have seemed like ADD some days, case may very well have been riding this wave.
Not sure if I am past the physical pull of the sugar, but I know that the psycho-emotional components are still working themselves out. Having some good snacking options around and knowing (thanks to my great buddy, Dr Jenni Flanagan) that when I am feeling sugar cravings, eat protein has served me well. Structure and patience…
Not having dessert/sugar as an option during the day has already made it easier. I just can’t and, thus, don’t do it. As Jack (Chicken Soup for the Soul) Canfield put it: 99% is a bitch. 100% is a breeze. (Check out a video on this: tv.aphilosophersnotes.com/?p=147) With that off the table, I can afford to focus better. It’s nice. (Not perfected, but nice enough.)
