I Quit Sugar: Why we focus on one health goal a week

While quitting sugar over an eight week period might seem overwhelming, we break it down week by week so that it isn’t!

During our 8-Week Program, we dedicate each week to working on one health goal. This way, you can put your time and energy into one area for that week – be it focusing on your gut health, dealing with cravings or learning how to eat out without going back to the sweet stuff.

Loading you up with lots of new concepts in a short space of time won’t make them stick…

We’re well aware that overloading you with a bunch of information in a short amount of time is a surefire way to overwhelm you!

Plus, it’s difficult to ditch the sweet stuff short-term, it needs to be over a longer period of time so you are able to fully experience the benefits of a life without sugar. And, sugar – particularly fructose – is hella addictive, so you can’t expect to be happily sugar-free after a week or two.

Plus, did you know that it takes 66 days to form a new habit?

This is the amount of time for a behaviour to become second nature – so, you’re able to complete a task without having to remember how to do so. It makes sense then, that we guide your effort to ditch the sweet stuff over eight weeks, only tackling one area per week so it has enough time to settle in and become automatic. But, don’t worry – checking food ingredient labels and saying no to the office lolly jar will soon become the norm!

And, the 8-Week Program is now running weekly!

That means you can kick off your sugar-quitting journey whenever you want! If you decide that you want to ditch the sweet stuff on a Friday, no worries – you can sign up straight away and the Program will begin that Sunday. Easy peasy! And, we hold your hand through every step of the Program, from dealing with detox symptoms in week one to crushing your cravings in week two and delving deep into your gut health in week four.

If you’re ready to maximise your 2018 by ditching the sweet stuff for good, join our 8-Week Program! And, it’s now running weekly so you can sign up whenever.
