To stop being sweet means that you learn how to manage your sugar intake. I only eat sweets for four days out of each year. After trying many things, that is what works for me. For you, it might be eating sugar one day a week, once a month, only on holidays, or perhaps only when you are out of town. What works for some people might not work for others. And there is more to getting off sugar than just figuring out some kind of limiting parameters.
To stop being sweet means that you put your health first, create your own personal sustainable sugar abstinence plan, and then stick to it. The first two parts are easy, it’s the sticking to it part people have trouble with. Remember, once an addict, always an addict. The secret is, you have to really want to become sugar free.
I got started in all of this by abstaining from sugar for two to three week stints—which was the longest I could hold out at the time. I rode that roller coaster for several years. It gets old. All of this is explained in the Stop Being Sweet ebook.
