Sugar Addiction: 5 Step Program

Hi, my name is (your name), and I’m a sugar addict.

If you’re reading this article you have taken your first step to admitting you have a problem.

Now that you are finally coming to terms with your addiction what are you going to do about it?

If you are looking to beat your sugar addiction or just want to cut those fat storing calories out of your diet then I hope you will follow this program and be on your way to a sugar free lifestyle.

Step 1: Admit You Have a Problem

Step 2: Inner Strength

You will never succeed in kicking the sugar habit until you get some will power. Fighting that sugar craving is tough (I know I am a sugar addict too) but if you want to succeed at anything in life you need perseverance, it does get easier. Find things that will motivate you to carry out your goals.

Step 3: Keep Busy

Most of the time we overeat for 2 reasons: We’re bored or emotionally distressed. Stop and look at the times when you tend to eat junk food. Now create a plan to be busy during those times. Find something active to do like taking the dog for a walk or go to a bookstore. Break the cycle and you will find it’s much easier to fight the cravings.

Step 4: Stop Buying Junk Food

It’s much easier to beat your addiction if you don’t have access to it. If you don’t have any junk food around during those times when you’re stuck at home fiending for sugar you won’t eat it. The withdrawals from it can really bring you down so go back to step 3 for help.

Step 5: Buy Sugar Free

One method that might help you break your sugar craving is to buy some sugar free products. Now this isn’t a recommendation to replace one junk food with another but a means of helping you with a craving. Try some sugar free pudding or yogurt to help hold you over during those nasty cravings.

Once you have started your program to stop eating sugar it will take you about 3 – 6 weeks before the cravings stop. Just remember that this will always be an ongoing battle so be diligent and never stop working at it.

    I fully agree with the steps listed here. If I had to pick a favourite, I’d go for number 4 – stop buying junk food. Nobody has perfect willpower, and it’s the short moments of weakness that are the hardest to overcome. So, if you have one of those moments of weakness, but no junk food around, it will be so much easier to stay the course.
