There was a moment early in the day when I thought I was dying (or could kill) because I couldn't eat sugar. In my defense, I was surrounded by sweets and people talking about sweets. I'm now pretty sure that my work place is actually a candy shop in disguise.
But I made it through. No sugar, no fruit, and no Diet Coke (no Diet Coke yesterday, either - I forgot to mention that). No alcohol, either, although I don't normally drink during my work week anyhow.
And I slept really well last night, better than usual. I track my sleep with my Fitbit One. It gives me a record of how long I slept and how much I move around (and am therefore theoretically less than fully asleep). I'd like to show you a screen shot but the website isn't cooperating.
My total sugar intake was only 12 grams yesterday. I wouldn't consider what I ate to be too healthy, other than the cauliflower and radishes I had. My diet resembled a cheese-and- bread-centered vegetarian's. Today I will try to eat more protein.
I've read before that sugar craving can be a sign of protein deficiency. I have nothing to contribute to that theory either way. I was vegan for a long time and I think that's why I still have trouble eating the amount of protein MFP thinks I should be eating.
