Have you been feeling hooked by your sugar cravings? Rather than fighting against your urges and compulsions for sugar, I invite you to use the tools of uncovering the deeper needs and integrative functioning.
I spoke in greater detail about these tools during a Q&A session with people going through The 30 Day Lift: an audio, compassion based program to help you eat less sugar. Here’s a quick excerpt published below. Learn more about The 30 Day Lift here.
It’s not about will power
If you’ve tried eating less sugar before, you may have found it hard to resist temptation, day in and day out.
You may have tried using will power, white knuckling it, and bribing yourself (promising yourself a reward if you stay off sugar) to stay sugar free. But at some point, your will power peters out. After 7, 15, or 20 days, you’re tired of saying no. You’re stressed from trying *not* to eat sugar!
You may even go back to eating sugar and be caught in the binge/restrain see saw. You may think it’s impossible.
It is possible – but it does take a different approach.
You may already know that you want to eat less sugar. But if you get stuck in the how – how to move from the desire to eat less sugar into actually doing it – then I’m here to help.
Bid goodbye to overeating binges and relax as you’re guided through each day as you transition to eating less sugar. Click to listen:
