Quitting Sugar, and what I lost from doing so.
It has been over a month now since I have given up refined sugar in most forms (I still don’t mind a beer or two, but that is under fire next!) and have never felt better, even though the scale still says the same thing I look better and feel better than I have in years. I have been able to lift more weight and be my endurance has improved out of sight. And I have
been able to do this without touching any supplements. Not saying that all supplements are bad, just that I feel at this point in time my diet is enough to help me across the line.
I often feel more energized as there is no sugar rush or crash, I feel more even and aligned.
This may sound like a bit of a self-righteous post, and in a few ways it is, but the main point is to inspire and warn people about what they lose if they want to go down this path. Sure there are the things where you can’t eat all that is put in front of you, it gets hard when looking for that ‘quick fix’ for something to eat but it still seems that I no longer want any of that in my body. I am making more empowering choices when it comes to the quick snack that I want when raiding the pantry with things like nuts becoming easier to reach for.
This leads me to the biggest thing that I have lost since giving up sugar, guilt. That’s right, I no longer hate myself for eating the wrong thing, or think about how much weight I will put on for eating that whole bag of lollies (which I could easily do). It has become so easy as well to turn away from the sugary stuff that it doesn’t even feel like an effort, I feel like I am fully in control of myself and my will power.
Doing it this way, with NLP and EFT throughout the CTC – Combined Therapy Cocktail™ process, there is no struggle against myself either. There is no feelings, for or against, towards the foods. I am just not interested. And I love it.
So yeah, as a result I have a lot better self-esteem than before. Not just from the looks but the feelings as well because I feel I do have that self-pride to be able to turn down foods that I would normally jump at. The lack of guilt now allows me to move forward with more and less time wallowing in self-pity…. which would then lead to more ‘pleasure eating’ and the cycle continues.
So I have even broken a self-fulfilling prophecy that used to plague my life, and the only things that I leave behind are things that would only hold me back. I want this for everyone who wants it. If sugar is a problem in your life, then it may be time to change your mind, which is a very easy, quick process. But, you must be willing to take control of your life and not be a victim of it.

This does also work for just about any food that you no longer want to eat, I just chose sugar.
