Sugar Withdrawal

I have a horrible headache, and I know why. I remember having this feeling the first few days into the Daniel Fast back in January. I haven’t had processed sugar since Monday, and I’m going through sugar withdrawal. One of the “symptoms” of withdrawal is the dreaded headache. sugar-spoon

I remember one night in graduate school I tried weaning myself from sugar. I had a craving so bad I woke up in the middle of the night, juiced 5 apples, and chugged the juice faster than you can say criss cross apple sauce! My headache/craving went away instantly. Yes, the sugar was natural (from apples), but the fact of the matter is sugar is just as addictive as drugs! Did someone say dopamine?

I’m writing this post because if I don’t I will truly go in the kitchen and make myself a bowl of Coco Puffs to “cure” my headache. If you know me, you know how I feel about Coco Puffs.

Have you successfully given up processed sugar? Leave me some tips!
