Hello humans. je m’appelle Ciaran Callam and I’m a sugar addict. For as far back as I can remember I’ve been literally, irrefutably and undeniably addicted to the sweet tasting white poison we all love to cram into our food. I can’t bear to think about how much money I’ve spent on candy, chocolates, and other forms of junk throughout my life because I know it’s a figure that would horrify me to see written on paper. You see; I’ve spent countless hours gorging my face on delicious carcinogens and while I’ve got to admit that these form some of the happiest memories of my life, the fact remains that I am addicted and that something desperately needs to change. I’ve done a lot of research into the harms of sugar and now that I know just how toxic it is to my health, I can’t justify putting it into my body anymore. There’s also the fact that I’ve been feeling the negative effects of having sugar in my diet for a few years now.  Whenever I eat sugary things, my thoughts and memory get hazy as all hell, my hayfever kicks into 5th gear, I feel physically sick and my vision actually deteriorates. Tis time for a change; so for the next 30 days I’m going cold turkey to once and for all beat my lifelong sugar addiction.

Wish a brother luck!

Days 19 – 21

Hey hey, humans! I’m pleased to say that my up and down cravings are still following a downward trend. In the past few days I’ve done some stuff that would have been unthinkable back in the day. For instance, on Saturday night I went out and found myself in a situation where there was no healthy food around from at least 9pm till 5am in the morning. Ordinarily, I’d have folded at about 12 and bought myself a kebab or some cider, or chocolate, or just about anything; but on Saturday, I was more than prepared to  starve until I got home.

I actually didn’t eat a thing.

Also; my thoughts are continuing to sharpen and crystalise. I was in a meeting with a recruitment consultant today and when she asked me about my work history, the words literally flew out of my mouth. I was noticeably smarter and more articulate than I have been recently and that on its own is reason enough for me to give up the white stuff. I also think I’m sleeping better too. Maybe this is BS but it does feel like I’m waking up with more pep and vigour in the mornings and me likey that very, very much. And finally, I’m reasonably sure my body fat percentage is dropping as yours truly is somewhat more ab-tastic than he has been in recent memory. Oh and before I forget, I had a check up at the drs the other day and my blood sugar levels are in fantastic shape.

No diabetes for me!
