How do you STOP eating sugar?

Samantha Taylor, Sugar Addiction Specialist, shares her experiences with quitting sugar on her website.  She also offers videos and email newsletters with information, tips, and personal stories.  If you’re thinking of eliminating sugar from your diet, Samantha is a great resource.


“How do you STOP eating sugar?”That is something I asked myself for many, many years and it took me 6 years to figure out the answer while I still struggled with the addiction.  I have found that it’s not just about the sugar or the food if you have other food addictions (which many sugar addicts do).  I encourage you to search within yourself and ask yourself these questions:

1)    Is there something I am running from that I don’t want to deal with and I use sugar as an escape?
2)    Are there feelings within me that I am trying to ‘drown’ or numb with my sugar episodes because I don’t want to deal with them?
3)    Is there abuse from my past, either in my childhood or adulthood that I have not dealt with?

Those can be important questions to ask and they can help to shed some light on why you might even have an addiction. I used to think, “I just love sugar…I am not eating it for all those other reasons.” But the more research I did and the more I got away from the addiction, I realized I really was trying to numb some feelings and I was using sugar to cope.  That may or may not be you, but it’s worth looking into your heart and investigating the answer. It may be something that you don’t find out until later, after you have actually overcome your sugar addiction.

Two Urgent Action Items to Stop Corporate Power Grabs and Protect Your Health

If you care about the quality of your food, and want to be able to identify genetically engineered (GE) foods, then this interview is of great importance. In it, Ben Beachy reveals important details about the imminent legislative threats that can seriously impair your ability to purchase healthy food.

You also need to be aware of an important and devastating development in the so-called Pompeo “DARK” Act that requires your immediate involvement.

In fact, this article will include not one but TWO urgent action items. It’s absolutely crucial you pick up the phone and call your Congressional representatives and urge them to vote down Pompeo’s bill and the Fast Track bill.

Both of these dangerous pieces of legislation need your immediate action now so we can stop them in their tracks. This is a highly debated issue and it is one where your single call to a legislature can make the difference. We desperately need you to take action on this to preserve our food freedom.

Unless enough people take action, the ramifications of these two simultaneous corporate power grabs will have severe ramifications for our health, economy, and environmental protections—not to mention the loss of individual, state, and national rights.

Breaking the Sugar Addiction

Are you addicted to sugar?

2. Do you have routines around sugar consumption – for example, always having pudding, or needing a piece of chocolate to relax in front of the television?

3. Are there times when you feel as if you cannot go on without a sugar hit?

4. If you are forced to go without sugar for 24 hours, do you develop headaches and mood swings?

If you answered ‘yes’ to one of the questions above, you are addicted.

Many people will be shocked to find from this little questionnaire, snagged from the article Sweet poison: why sugar is ruining our health, that they are addicts.
