Every now and then we ask fab sugar-free fans to share their I Quit Sugar stories. First up, the delightful model, actress and TV host Megan Gale.
Megan’s been a model for more than 20 years and is the face of L’Oreal Paris. She’s also a host, judge and producer of Project Runway Australia, and creative director of her own swimwear label Isola by Megan Gale. Oh, and a little while back she quit sugar and tweeted us to say she’d bought the book and had plunged into the program.To read what Megan eats on the program click here.
I just finished my 8-Week Program. It’s been an interesting journey. The first two weeks were HORRIBLE! I just felt so weak (mentally). It didn’t help either that both those weeks I was back and forth between Melbourne and Sydney and I was staying in hotels. The times when I could grocery shop and make my own food it was, of course, much easier, especially with your awesome recipes. I also had 10 days in LA and Mexico around the 3-4 week mark and that was tough too.
Despite all this, I didn’t fall off the wagon. And for the first two weeks I stayed around the 1-3g of sugar per 100g mark and then from week three I kept the sugar levels below 6/100g.
I also gave up alcohol around week four and coffee around week six. Coffee was something I’d been trying to give up for a while as I was too dependent on it. It was much harder letting go of that than sugar as it was by far my biggest addiction.
Thank you for creating this amazing program and book!
