Weekly Sugar Challenge: Week of April 18, 2011
This week, begin to change your associations with sugar.
1. Take Notice
Try to be aware of when you are being manipulated by advertising or other people. Sweets are often used.
2. Avoid Sweets
It’s a lot easier to notice when sweets are being used as a tool to manipulate you when you aren’t having them.
Read a book, blog, or article about the negative effects of sugar consumption. Watch a movie about the fast food industry. Talk to a nutritionist. Discover something new.
4. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
Unless you’ve gone sugar-free, your comfort zone includes sugary snacks. Go to a different restaurant, a new food store, or simply shop in a different asile. Participate in a different activity. Do something different from the usual.
When you avoid sweets you get to sit back and watch those who do indulge. Study them and see what you see. It might surprise you.
