A MAN is going on a pre-Christmas crash diet by no longer taking three spoons of sugar in his tea.
Tom Logan’s plan, which he hopes will lose him a stone-and-a-half in three weeks, also includes downloading a running app and taking his gym kit to work, but he admits the sugar is the most likely to make a difference.
He said: “It’s been three whole days and I won’t deny it’s been tough. But I’ve resisted temptation, and I’ve battled through.
“As I keep telling people, tea isn’t actually that nice without sugar. But I’ve resisted the temptation to just cut my intake to two spoons or one spoon, and got rid of it entirely.
“I was on six cups a day, minimum, so this is no small thing. It’s a massive change, and I expect I’ll be seeing the benefits as soon as Friday.
“It’s hard to believe I ever enjoyed a cup of tea with sugar in it now. That Tom feels like a different person. I look back, and I pity him.”
