Here's the deal...
Giving up anything, or even just trying to cut down, can be hard enough for even the most strong willed individuals, so if you’re thinking of cutting down or quitting sugar altogether, make sure you let the people around you know, and ask them to help you.
Temptation is such a powerful thing, and sugar has been proven to be as addictive as cocaine in tests with lab rats, so you need to break from your sugar addiction in a sugar free environment.
I have already written here about all of the amazing health benefits of quitting sugar, but as it's such an addictive substance, you might still need every bit of help you can get.
So what's the plan?
First off let your family and friends know what you are doing and tell them out your sugar detox – maybe even get them to give up with you?
Any additional support you can get will go a long way.
Make sure that the house is at least free from any visible temptation, but even then, that probably won’t be enough.
I know from experience that if you know there is a sweet treat hiding in the cupboard, when the sugar cravings come, that treat may as well be screaming at you and telling you where it is!
You can’t concentrate, because in the back of your mind you know that it’s sitting there, waiting… and waiting, for you to give in!
