Stop Eating Too Much Sugar

This page is really devoted to those who are more addicted to it than most of the population of the western world. Millions and millions of people are addicted to sugar to some extent and many who don’t think they are a sugar addict would in fact find it very difficult to eliminate it from their diet for a couple of weeks.
There is an argument that any sugar is ‘too much’ and there is a mass of scientific research showing how bad it is for people.  Just think of the levels of obesity and Type II diabetes in the ‘western’ world.

We are, however, more realistic about people’s expectations. If you do want to stop eating sugar completely, then we will do our best to help you, although it is usually easier to stop completely than people imagine. Most people, however, simply want to radically reduce their intake and just eat or drink ‘sweet things’ occasionally.

Why Am I Addicted To Sugar?

Because it’s a drug, pure and simple.  Foods with this substance aren’t called ‘comfort foods’ for nothing. Try putting a little sugar on your tongue and notice what happens….for most people, it tastes good and feels good.

Actually, sugar raises insulin levels, which then triggers an adrenal response (the sugar rush), and causes the release of serotonin (one of your body’s ‘happy chemicals’). Eating sugar is a chemical addiction that provides a ‘high’ for a while, that is inevitably followed by a dip in blood sugar level and a ‘low’, and at this point people with this problem will eat more sweet things to stop feeling bad, and start feeling good. And so the cycle continues…

It’s also a psychological habit. Like any habit, it’s often something the often person does without thinking about too much.

How Will You Help Me With My Sugar Problem?

Well, we favour the direct approach and tend to use a range of direct, straightforward techniques from the fields of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). It is all about training your mind to do what you want it to, and making healthy responses to food automated. It isn’t therapy, we aren’t looking for ‘why’ you eat to much sugary food or drink too many sugary drinks, it is about aiming your thinking, feeling and behaviour towards a healthier and healthier lifestyle.
