The Best Things in Life are Sugar-Free.

Why is it that most people who attempt to quit sugar fail? Because they’re attempting to quit sugar! That is, they are trying to stop themselves from doing something they love to do. And, quite often, they’re trying to do it alone with no support.
What happens? They make it several weeks, possibly several months, and then they get stressed out about something and go right back to bingeing on sweets. This is not uncommon and people shouldn’t feel badly about it if this happens.
Don’t feel badly, just start again!
Imagine if you stopped trying to talk the first time you mispronounced a word.
Imagine if you quit learning how to read when you came across a big word.
Imagine if you stopped going out because you once tripped and fell.
To Stop Being Sweet means to create a sustainable sugar abstinence plan. For some it means eating sweets once a week. For others (like me) it means eating sweets once a year.
Figure out what works for you. Doing so doesn’t happen quickly. There is no magic meal plan that will work for everyone. It’s up to YOU to figure it out.
