Still Too Much Sugar in my Diet

Weighed in this morning at 152 pounds, down one from yesterday.

Here's what I did yesterday to lose that one pound...

Morning: 1 small whole wheat tortilla (80 calories)
Morning: 1 package, 170g, of blackberries (73 calories)
Afternoon: 4oz of teriyaki beef jerky (400 calories)
Mid-afternoon: 16oz fruit bowl, apple, grapes, melon, pineapple (240 calories)
Mid-afternoon: 1 can of V8 Juice (70 calories)
Evening: 1 package, 1 dry pint, cherry tomatoes (70 calories)
Evening: 1 can of V8 Juice (70 calories)

Total: 1,003 calories

Exercise: none

I think I'm starting to see the effects of sugar on weight loss. It's not just that sugar makes you fat, but it stops your metabolism from burning fat.

So yesterday, I had blackberries, teriyaki beef jerky, a fruit bowl, and two cans of V8 Juice. I still lost one pound yesterday, but it could have also been some water loss from all the beer I drank on Thursday.

The teriyaki beef jerky was a big contributor. The teriyaki sauce has a lot of sugar, and it contributed to 24gm of sugar in the whole bag. The two cans of V8 Juice has 22gm of sugar combined. I don't know exactly what the blackberries and fruit bowl contained, but probably somewhere around 30gm.

But fresh fruit and V8 Juice have so much more to offer in the form of vitamins and minerals, that I don't plan to stay away from those foods. I try not to eat anymore sweetened beef jerky, but the problem is that I've made writing beef jerky reviews a part of my business.

So, somehow I have to be more vigilant in the sugar I consume, and try to spread the fresh fruit and vegetables around more.

If you missed it, I published a new article on Weight Loss Blogger called, "Carbs Are OK, Just Not Sugar", check it out.
