What is I Quit Sugar all about?

I Quit Sugar - What is I Quit Sugar all about?

At the end of the day, I Quit Sugar is all about finding your food freedom.

But how do we go about achieving this freedom?

1. When you quit sugar, you love your food.

  • Eating food shouldn’t have to be an emotionally (or physically) taxing event.
  • When you learn to cut out the sugary, processed crap, you also learn how to eat real food again. Real food that you and your body will love.

2. When you quit sugar, you don’t restrict. You eat in abundance.

  • There’s no such thing as food restriction on the I Quit Sugar: 8-Week Program (unless you’re counting fructose, that is).
  • We encourage you to eat everything else! That means no counting calories or stressing over the full-fat, low-fat debate.
  • All of our meal plans are written and approved by qualified nutritionists and are developed specifically to help keep your body full and happy while simultaneously weaning you off sugar. 

3. When you quit sugar, you JERF (just eat real food).

  • Quitting sugar means going back to a grassroots way of eating.
  • This mean eating un-mucked-with produce that our great-grandparents would recognise as food (and yes, this includes fruit too).
  • As Sarah says, “Quitting sugar gets us back to eating the way people did before the damn diets.”

4. When you quit sugar, you minimise your fructose intake.

  • The “sugar” in our name refers primarily to “fructose”. Why?
    • Because fructose is almost exclusively metabolised by our liver (while glucose can be metabolised through every cell in our body).
    • Fructose promotes fat storage in and around the liver in the form of triglycerides. This can lead to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and insulin resistance.
    • Our brain doesn’t have the same “off switch” for fructose as it does with glucose.
    • Fructose is also highly addictive and twice as sweet as glucose.
  • Read more about our stance on fructose vs. glucose.

5. When you quit sugar, you eat a vegetable-based, meat-inclusive diet (vegetarian meal plans also available).

  • What do you eat when you don’t eat sugar, processed, mucked-with crap? You eat real, wholesome, nutrient-dense food.
  • And on our 8-Week Program this is the philosophy we adopt wholeheartedly with our meal plans too! We slowly wean out the sugar and replace it with good fats and proteins to help our body adjust.

6. When you quit sugar, you become more educated and aware.

  • As we all know, it’s impossible to unlearn something. The same goes when it comes to your health and well-being.
  • Throughout our 8-Week Program and on our blog we strive to constantly provide simple, delicious solutions to help our readers become more aware to the world of health (especially when sneaky added sugar is involved!).
