So lets cut to the chase. You’re addicted to sugar and theres no point in sugar coating it (because you’d probably eat that too).
So how do we go about combating it?
Sugar addiction can stem from a host of issues both emotionally and psychologically and Often at times we’ll eat something sweet simply because we desperately want a high or because of a deep lying attachment forged from our younger days to the “white devil”
I honestly believe everyone has the capability to re-train their brains to crave something else and/ or add something that will fix the sugar craving FOR GOOD
People are eating sugar everyday without even realising it. Sugar is hidden or camouflaged in a plethora of foods that are promoted as healthy.
Modern breakfast cereals, Processed juices, Processed yoghurts, White bread and Milk products are laden with it, yet still these so called “weight loss” foods are promoted. This is dangerous miseducation.
Special K as an example is like having a dessert for breakfast. If you think that eating that kind of food when you awake is going to help you then you are in cloud cuckoo land. Eat Special K and you’ll stay fat and probably increase it. Low fat products inevitably mean high sugar and that’s the fall down.
You must remember when buying products that fructose, lactose, sucrose, ribose, glucose are all sugar. Beware the “OSE” because then having met the white devil you’re now dancing with the the whole family.
one-teaspoon of sugar can suppress the immune system for up to 4 hours so along with making you fat it will also make you sick and we don’t need that!
Here are my top tips to curb the urges and break a very dangerous addiction.
1. Deep Breathing
Deep breathing when craving comes. 1 min of deep breaths with eyes closed until it passes.
Meditation or mind control to overcome a scenario is something that is overlooked. We all hold the willpower to say no to anything we want. This simple technique can help in any situation.
Sugar will stimulate the production of dopamine and serotonin and these substances are known to give a feeling of feeling good but your breathing breathing will make you feel great too.
2. Coconut oil ( take 1 tea spoon)
Helps Reduce Sugar Cravings and Balance Blood Sugar.
People using coconut oil have noticed their ability to go without food for longer with less sugar cravings and feelings of satisfaction. It’s Also an added beautifier and increases internal and external wellness. Take 1 tea spoon. It’s yummy!
3. Cupcake torture
Go into a cup cake shop, smell the cupcakes, order one, hold it. Then walk out and throw it away!
The next time you’re in the sugar stress situation you’ll have the memory of passing on it, feeling strong and increasing your tolerance.
This will build discipline and although quite a dramatic protocol it will help your mental strength when dealing with a sugar addiction. I feel the chocolate hotel or a bakery are best for this training
4. Use coconut palm sugar
The only sugar i want in my clients life is a sugar daddy but coconut palm sugar is a slight exception. It’s healthier than sugar but worse than no sugar at all and that’s something to remember with all sweeteners. it’s maintains some of the benefits of the coconut and If you must use a sweetener, then a pinch of this isn’t too bad.
5. Orgasmic exercise
Make squats and sprints a big part of your routine. I call them orgasmic exercises because you’ll release dopamine and serotonin akin to when having sex. This will reduce your need for sugar and educate your body to get your highs from elsewhere going forwards.
If sugar was discovered today as a new substance it would be classified along with the other drugs. It’s the same neural pathway as other addictions and causes huge problems with obesity, depression, eating disorders and diabeties. With this in mind and that these conditions leading to early death it’s quite astonishing that we give this substance so readily to kids. Education is our medication so let’s start it with the next generation, too.
