Cutting Out Sugar To Cure That Sweet Tooth

When talking fitness it can be a bit daunting to think of our achievements as we get older – there is so much stuff all over the internet in videos about how to be fit this way and not to look after yourselves that way.    Going at a gentle pace and keeping up the regular exercise routine is so much more beneficial that going hell for leather on an extreme programme that is beyond our natural way of acting.   If we knew as teenagers that by piling on weight and not exercising properly in mid life, we will probably result in heart problems later on, or staggeringly painful arthritis, we would no doubt think carefully about life habits.

In later life it can be beneficial to adopt a change of eating habits to improve blood pressure, cholesterol, weight and maybe digestive inbalances.   Whereas in our younger day we thought we could eat anything we fancied, but the constant eating of fatty foods and sugary sweet stuff is so habit forming and addictive, it can be very difficult to take them out of our diet.   I do know someone who had a very sweet tooth;  at school her pocket money was spent at the tuck shop daily.  In her thirties she suffered heart problems and decided to have a week off from the sweet stuff.  That week was not hard so it got extended to a fortnight, then a month . . . .  I can say, hand on heart, that she never touches sweet things now.  No dessert, no chocolate.  In fact I have never seen her order anything other than savoury items.  I am immensely impressed and need to follow suit!
