The WORST Advice For Quitting Sugar
We’ve heard time and time again that in order to say no to junk, we have to keep it out of the house.
Well I call BS on that. Plain and simple.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of the concept of environment design when it comes to habits, that is setting up the environment in your control so you have less friction when it comes to achieving whatever it is you set out to do.
In theory, this should work with sugar. But in reality, it doesn’t. Not even close.
And this is why.
IN WHAT WORLD is there no sugar and no junk food in our surroundings. We live in a world where sugary junk food is everywhere we turn. You go to fill up your car with petrol? You have a selection of junk and chocolate bars while you pay for your tank. You go for coffee with a friend? There is cakes and treats displayed lovingly in the counter as you order your latte. You catch an uber? The diver offers you Minties, which is also the worst candy that ever existed. I mean… If you are going to eat sugar, please don’t let it be Minties.
Get the picture?
Unless you never ever leave your house to do anything, you are always going to be in an environment where sugar is at your finger tips, being offered to you all day long and looking shiny and pretty on the shelves.
Simply removing sugar from your environment is not only impossible but it does nothing to get rid of the cravings or the desire to eat more than… desired.
And this is why “keep junk out of your house” is terrible advice when it comes to closing the door on sugar.
Instead, what you need is not actually wanting the sugar in the first place. This really is the only way to “quit sugar”.
But it’s hard! I know because I’ve been there myself. And I ain’t going back. Many ask beg me time and time again, “I know I feel like crap when I eat sugar but I just can’t say no, help!”
And I want to help! After years of research and trial and error, I can finally say I never crave sugar to the point where I am out of control. I enjoy food, I enjoy dessert, I love nothing more than being in the kitchen. But what I am not is scared of food, worried I’ll overeat or guilty about something I indulged in. And wow, it is liberating! But it doesn’t need to be reserved for just myself.
So I’ve put everything I’ve learnt in my unique course The Sweetness Beyond Sugar.
The next round kicks off in January 2021! Are you joining me and breaking up with sugar for good?
And if this doesn’t interest you and you like eating sugar, you do you, just don’t eat Minties. Please.
