Day 2

Boost Juice surprise

Table sugar is sucrose. Sucrose is 50% glucose and 50% fructose.

High Fructose Corn Syrup is 50% glucose and 55% fructose. Very little difference. 

 

The first night’s sleep after 2 years with sugar yielded some tossing and turning and a bizarre dream where I resembled a wobbly overweight pear strolling through a forest of broccoli. Freud? My lady still loved me which was a relief.

Breakfast again consisted of a bowl of Just Right and some low fat strawberry yoghurt. Cereal 7 teaspoons and the yoghurt 4.

After an hour I felt a little weary so headed down the street with a friend and thought I would investigate the world of Boost Juice. Pretty shocked when my low fat ‘Strawberry Squeeze’ original size smoothie came in at 72 grams of sugar; aka 18 teaspoons of the best. Felt amazing for a good hour then found myself picking a fingernail and feeling hungry.

It was 10:30am and I had already had 29 teaspoons for the day.

Lunch was yum cha with some Chinese broccoli, dim sims and spring rolls. Mainly a protein hit but lets say 2 teaspoons of sugar for the small bowl of plum and sweet chilli sauce.

I topped it off with a bite of mango pancake (my lady’s favourite), and after 2 years it did taste pretty amazing.  There was a solid 5 teaspoons in that tropical themed Asian treat.

With just 3 teaspoons remaining and half a day left I took it pretty easy, enjoyed an amazing chicken dinner with a chickpea salad but rounded off the day with a sesame snap (4 teaspoons).

Key things I noticed for the day:

I would say I am quite a ‘present’ person. I am aware and alert to my surroundings. Not today. I failed some really basic tasks and often found myself in a distracted state. We have some terrific interviews in the USA next month with some people in regard to sugar and consciousness. How it can induce an ‘altered’ state. I think this is a fascinating area to explore. It directly effects how we relate to each other and the world around us.

Must retire now and return to the broccoli forest. Savoury Dreams.
