It has now been six weeks of no sugar, meaning that our experiment is over. I broke my sugar fast with a coffee macaroon, one of my very favorite sweets. I only ate about half of it (I was surrounded by a hungry flock of three-year-olds), but what I did eat, although delicious, tasted a little too sweet. That didn’t surprise me, as I’ve gotten so used to eating unsweetened foods. What did surprise me though was that I got a headache afterward that lasted the whole afternoon. It’s possible that I got the headache for another reason, although I didn’t do anything else unusual. So perhaps I’ll be continuing to skip the sugar, whether I like it or not!
