I’ve been having countless conversations with women over the past 2 years about sugar (obviously). And most of these conversations are bout their frustration with trying to kick sugar and constantly “failing” or slipping right back into the old ways of eating and cravings.
Maybe you can relate to this?
The BIGGEST thing that I’ve learned over the last 4 years of my own journey with sugar and working with clients, is exactly what works and what doesn’t when it comes to creating a lasting and healthy relationship with sugar.
Time and time again I see most women making these 3 BIG MISTAKES when they try to kick sugar cravings and change their habits on their own. Heck, I made all these same mistakes myself when I first started out!
Are you making any of these mistakes too?
- Thinking sugar is just the white refined stuff and not realizing that sugar has over 90 names and actually includes maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar, white bread, white pasta and much more.
- Trying to kick sugar cravings by going off it for a few weeks thinking a little detox or cleanse will do the trick. The thing no one realizes is that creating lasting change starts in the mind and not in the body. Creating a real shift with sugar involves much more than detoxing from it. You HAVE to shift your beliefs, rewire old patterns and habits, and heal your emotional connection to food before any change will stick.
- Attempting to go through the wild and confusing road to sugar freedom all on their own. I can’t tell you how many times I tried to go after a goal or make a big change in my life ALONE only to fail time and time again. When I started my business, I spent the first year completely on my own. Just me and Google trying to figure it all out… with no success. It wasn’t until I surrounded myself in a community of other entrepreneurs that I finally started to see shifts and results!
I’ve seen time and time again in the last 4 years, there’s MUCH more to healing our relationship with something so addicting and deeply rooted in our culture as sugar.
Love & Light,
