What is beneath your sugar and caffeine cravings?

When you desperately feel like you need a cup of tea or a cup of coffee or some sort of sugar (it doesn’t mean dipping your hand in a bag of skittles, it could, but it also means wanting bread, pasta, muffin, cookies, chocolate, sweets, alcohol, pop, juice and anything that is calling your name that has sugar in it)

What are you feeling? Are you tired, stressed, frustrated, feel like you deserve a reward, etc. Label it and own it. Continue reading »

Releasing My Sugar Shame

Once upon a time I would go and buy 4 Snickers bars and eat them all at once and then I would work out on the treadmill to try and get rid of the disgust and calories that I had for myself.

Other times when my husband and children would leave the house and I would start baking cookies. I would eat the batter, then eat all of the cookies while making banana bread and then eat that too. Then I would hop on the treadmill and again run off my shame, my disgust and the calories that I had just consumed. Continue reading »

Getting off the Sugar

This is one of the most frequently asked questions I am asked. How can I stop eating sugar?

Many people think because they are not eating “candy” that they are not eating sugar. That’s not TRUE. Sugar lurks everywhere and we are eating & drinking way too much of it.

Besides the obvious – sugar and anything ending in “ose” or artificial sweeteners or anything sweet (expect stevia – which is an herb). You’re an intelligent person – you know where sugar is!!! Breads, pasta, juice, pop, alcohol, pastries, muffins, packaged & prepared foods, oatmeal, chips, potatoes, some fruits and veggies, condiments and on & on (just in case I left any out).

What are you feeling? Are you tired, stressed, frustrated, feel like you deserve a reward, etc. Label it and own it.

Sit with it & feel it in your body. Listen to your mental chatter? Are you trying to make deals with yourself?  Just a little bit. No one will know. Who I am kidding, I can’t do this. Does it matter if I only have a little bit? I didn’t have any yesterday. I’ve been good. I have a headache and feel jittery – I’ll just have a bit to take the edge off. I need the caffeine to keep going. I’ll just have a small one? I really can’t live without it. I don’t want to deal with the detox symptoms. I’m never not going to have sugar or caffeine again, so throw in the towel and give in. Continue reading »
