Sugar addiction. 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. Many who don’t think they are a sugar addict would in fact find it very difficult not to eat it for a few days.
There is an argument that any sugar is ‘too much’. 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 more realistic about people’s expectations. If you do want to stop eating sugar completely, then we will do our best to help you. It can be 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.

Sugar raises insulin levels, which then triggers an adrenal response. This is the so called sugar rush. This 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. It is inevitably followed by a dip in blood sugar level and a ‘low’. At this point people with this problem will eat more sweet things to stop feeling bad, to 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. We 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 more automatic. 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.
