The left is my diet pre-concussion. I was running on Tim Hortons and good intentions. (There are 57 g of sugar in a med Ice capp) On an average day I would consume around 150g of added sugar... That's more than a cup. ...
The right is today's added sugar: 16g. I'm drinking choc milk right now to help wash down the brain-healing omega 3 orange-flavoured fish supplement 🤢🤢 so that adds 10g to the cup (it's included in my 16g for today.) ...
I feel so much better, the ultimate test will be, will this carry me through trimming 10-12 horses a day once I'm better.... .
women should consume no more than 26g of added sugar in a day. (My morning go-to tims meal of BELT, Medium double double and vanilla dip donut alone was 51g) . Get this: an XL DblDbl is 36g.
Natural sugars like the ones found in fruit have more fibre and nutrients so your body is slower in breaking them down. For now, fruits are my crutch, I'll wean myself off them eventually and eat more veggies. But for now I'm impressed with my progress. 136lbs. My lowest weight (after my growth spurt in 9th grade at 5'8, my current height) was 135lbs
