Your Guide to Quitting Sugar in the New Year

Now is the time to create the wellness habits that will guide you through the year – and the rest of your life. But that doesn’t mean eating a boring, restrictive diet! Brownies, cheesecake and muffins – yes, you can enjoy all of these when you quit sugar with us on the 8-Week Program! Let’s dive into a few simple, stress-free ways you can quit sugar in 2024.  

Here at I Quit Sugar, we’re not about the pomp and frills; we’re about keeping it simple and straightforward. So, we can tell you this much – quitting sugar? It works. So, ready to give it a shot and finally make those health goals a reality? Or perhaps you’re curious about the ins and outs of making it happen? We’re here to give you the rundown on what you’ll need and how we can help you.  

Make Sure You Eat Healthy Fats

Yep, you read that right – don’t neglect fat! It’s an essential part of our diet; but we’re not talking about trans fats from your local fast-food joint or those ultra-processed frozen meals, we’re talking about healthy fats found in whole and minimally-processed foods. These fats, contrary to what you might have heard, actually reduce sugar cravings and promote fullness. One of the main benefits of healthy fats is that they can help you feel more satiated after a meal. This is because fats take longer to digest than carbohydrates or protein, which means they can help slow down the digestion process and keep you feeling fuller for longer. This can be especially beneficial for those trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. Fats also help regulate appetite hormones, helping you stay satisfied and reducing those sugar cravings. Your brain is made up of nearly 60% fat, which means it needs a steady supply of healthy fats to function properly. Omega-3 fatty acids, in particular, have been shown to have a range of cognitive benefits, including improving memory and concentration and reducing the risk of depression and anxiety. What’s more, vitamins A, D, E, and K are fat-soluble, which means they need to be consumed with fat in order to be properly absorbed by the body. By getting a good dose healthy fats to your diet, you can help ensure that you're getting the most nutritional value out of the foods you eat. So, low-fat isn’t all it’s cracked up to be! That’s why the 8-Week Program is packed with delicious healthy fat-rich ingredients like yoghurt, haloumi, avocado, olive oil and eggs.

You Don’t Have to Ditch the Wine!

Yes, we drink wine on the 8-Week Program! You may be surprised to hear that wine has near negligible amounts of fructose – which is the visceral-fat building part of sugar – and that’s because it gets fermented into alcohol. The result? A comparatively low-sugar drink that puts cocktails to shame; it’s not just the alcohol that stacks on the kilos, it’s the fructose packed into some of these drinks you’ll find at the bar. But not all alcohol is made the same! On the other end of the scale, we've got the sugar-laden rum and coke, which packs a whopping 27 grams of sugar. Baileys and your classic gin and tonic follow close behind at 18 and 20 grams in a single glass. So, stick to red wine for a low sugar, antioxidant-rich option! (But, as always, moderation is key!)

Crash Dieting is Not the Answer

Here at I Quit Sugar, we’re not about fad diets! Quitting sugar doesn’t have to be restrictive, rather it can be a freeing experience that shows you a whole world of flavoursome cooking with herbs, spices, fats and fresh produce – food that makes you feel good.

Trust the Process: Allow Yourself 8 Weeks to See Results

You don’t have to watch the scale like a hawk – you may see impressive weight loss results, but it’s really not the ultimate goal. We want you to feel good and take back control of your life and health, now and in the future. Embracing the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program is not just a short-term commitment; it's a transformative journey that unfolds over two months for a reason. The program is aptly named because it recognises the time it takes to break free from the grips of sugar and witness meaningful changes in your body, allowing your system to detoxify from the effects of excess sugar consumption. During this time, your body undergoes a significant shift, gradually adapting to a lifestyle that is free from the addictive pull of sugar. It's not just about abstaining for a few days; it's a comprehensive reset that enables your body to recalibrate its natural appetite cues. As the weeks progress, the program empowers you to reclaim control over your relationship with sugar. By the end of the 8 weeks, you're not just breaking a habit; you're redefining your approach to food. You can then make an informed choice: reintroduce limited amounts of natural sugars found in fruits and occasional dark chocolate, or opt to continue a sugar-free journey if that aligns with your goals.
