Will I lose weight when I quit sugar?


One of the first question everyone asks when discussing the benefits of quitting sugar is: will I lose weight when I quit sugar?

You don’t have to be John Goodman, Adele or any other of the dozens of celebrities who lost weight when they quit sugar. Anyone can do it. But the most important thing to remember before embarking on your sugar quitting journey is this: quitting sugar is about finding our ideal health, not just about thinning our waists.

1. Can you lose weight when you quit sugar?

  • Yes, quite possibly!
  • When you quit sugar it means you quit processed food. And when you quit processed food that means you’re quitting empty calories and all those other added nasties.
  • Most people find that when they quit sugar, they lose bulk, especially around the face and abdomen (which is where your liver holds the weight gained from excess sugar consumption).

2. How much weight will you lose?

  • That is something only you can find out for yourself because everybody (and every body) is different.
  • Quitting sugar and treating your body with the respect it deserves will see you find your bodies natural, sustainable weight.

3. Can you lose weight when you do the 8-Week Program?

  • While we cannot guarantee you’ll always lose weight when you quit sugar, some people on our I Quit Sugar: 8-Week Program have lost 4-5 kilos (9-11lbs) others have lost as much as 30 kilos (65lbs) over an extended period of time.
  • We have found that those who quit sugar do not tend to regain weight after the Program finishes. Which is not the case for most “diets”.
  • Experts say this is because an eating approach that simply cuts out sugar is sustainable.
  • Bottom line, weight loss is likely to occur if you are holding weight from eating too much sugar, but… quitting sugar is more about becoming the healthier version of yourself!
