Voluntary Sugar Deprivation

When I woke up yesterday morning I decided to perform an experiment; I went the entire day without 'sugar' (almost). That is 'sugar' and not sugar (why does this word not have an 'h'? 's' pronounced 'sh' is Hungarian not English, this crazyness must be stopped - another time perhaps) because I am allowing natural sugars like found in Apples and Bananas (why is the middle 'a' pronounced differently here? I think I am going to pronounce it as if all the a's have sound for now on).

Yesterdays eatings:
1 Banana (pronounced Bahnahnah not Bahnanah)
1 serving of Chicken Pot Pie, although it might have been Pol Pot Pie, it tasted more like dictator than chicken.
1 side of Broccoli (the Green stuff not Albert)
1 small package of pretzels
1 small package of Honey Roasted Cashews (oops second ingredient was Sugar).
1 Apple
Some cheese curds
One small piece of imitation crab meat (which lists crab as an ingredient, you can't trust anyone). I though better about having more since I had no idea how long it had been in the fridge.
For drinks:
about 10 glasses of water and 1/2 a small bottle of Lime Scented Perrier.

I felt perfectly fine for the whole day. No real body cravings for anything. I did have a desire for some of the Lavender Dagoba Chocolate Bar that is sitting on the counter. But it was a mental thing not a physical thing. I was able to stay away.

I felt fine throughout the whole day. Not tired, not wired, not really hungry, not super tall; Essentially the same as always. No sugar, no caffeine, no difference.

The only odd thing was at about 11:00 I was exhausted. I slept straight until 8:30 today.

I decided to continue the experiment.
1 Banana, pronunciation unimportant.
1 Grape from the 'Vineyard' that is trying to take over my 'Orchard'.
1 Barbeque Beef sandwich with Coleslaw.
A handful mixture of Cashews, Almonds, and Macadamias.
Lots and lots of water.

Up until an hour ago, I felt just fine. Now I feel light headed and sweaty. I am not really thinking straight today at work. This confirms my belief that my brain is made of sugar. Little caramel fibers connecting neurons of rock candy floating in a syrupy chocolate sea. I think I might eat my brain now.

    Does anyone else think this would be an awesome super power: The ability to instantly come up with an anagram for anyones full name. I'm the tall…

  • Racist or just Stupid?

    The internets have been having fun with a recent opinion post from Byron York. Of particular ridicule is this portion: ... and his sky-high ratings…

  • Had a thought today

    I should copyright my DNA. Then if I were ever sued for paternity, I could counter-sue for copyright violations for the derivative work!
