Hi there, You’ve done an excellent job. I will certainly read more and suggest to my friends. I’m sure they’ll benefit from this site.
The worst part about trying to quit sugar is finding something that will satisfy my craving that doesn’t have sugar in it!
I can look at something that has a lot of sugar in it, Know Ill feel lousy after I eat it and still eat it. When I say feel lousy, I mean mentally and physically.
I truly believe sugar is more addictive than tobacco, cocaine or opioids.
I would love to know anything that can help me get through the first 5 days.
I quit before and after about two weeks, felt great. But then, little by little, simply because it is so hard to find food that doesn’t have sugar in it, I lapsed back.
I know how intense the craving can be, but it gets better with time. Make sure you are eating good meals during the day so you do not just pick up any highly processed food. Your nutritional needs may be confused with wanting sugar. Eat things without labels or shop around the outer perimeter of the grocery store. Fruit in moderation can help.
When I fist quit sugar 32 years ago, I would not eat anything sweet because it seemed to increase my cravings. Today I have fruit and I occasionally use stevia or xylo, but it did not work when I was first trying to quit. Keep remembering how great you felt when it was out of your system. Today sugar is not worth battling the cravings, feeling irritable, depressed and lethargic.
I have been reading out many of your stories and I can state clever stuff. I will definitely bookmark your site.
I can quit sugar for a week without a problem and then crave a “treat” and it isn’t brocolli. It’s like I develop amnesia about how sugar makes me feel. And I’m back into wanting a little sugar every day. How does one curb that first desire for it? And stay with it?
Think it through. As soon as I start eating sugar again I start eating more. I feel tired, depressed and fat. I don’t want to feel like that anymore. After awhile, I don’t want it.
This is awesome. You have helped so many people!
I don’t eat refined sugar again because I remember how hard it was to quit and how bad I felt the first few days without sugar. I have felt so much better emotionally and physically. I also have maintained my ideal weight for years now. I wish I knew this earlier in my life.
National Sugar Awareness week starts Monday, January 18-22, 2021. We are looking forward to seeing your comments during the Sugar Challenge!
The first Couple of days are the hardest for me and my household but once we get over the 48 hr hump we all seem to feel more clear headed. However my partner felt higher cravings for other foods. What do you think the cause is for the rise in craving is?
Sometimes people can also be addicted to other foods too, especially, flour, fats and fast foods.
I don’t think I can do it… I’ll try
