Perhaps you’re playing with the idea of quitting sugar for 2013. To get well. And bright. And happy. Yes?

Some of the treats I invite you to eat when you quit sugar. Clockwise from top left: bacon and egg cupcakes, avocado and coconut water popsicles, almond butter bark, crunchy nut cheesecake, berry pie, coco nutty granola.

Look, I’m not one to to sell in things with fanfare. I will simply say: quitting sugar works. And then I will gently invite you: to try it for yourself. How does it work? What will it take? How do you do it?

1. Eat fat. And wine.

Yes, my I Quit Sugar program requires you to eat more haloumi cheese and meat (if you’re not vegan or vego), macadamia nuts, homemade chocolate, coconut, and avocado popsicles. And, yes, you can still drink wine and beer and some spirits (in case you’re worried).

2. Don’t diet.

I hate diets. Quitting sugar is not a diet. It’s not miserable, you eat more, you eat without guilt. And it’s not a fad; I don’t do fads either.

It’s about cutting out processed food and eating like our grandmother’s used to. Simple. Non-faddish.

3. Know that you will lose weight.

Some people lose 2kg. Some lose 55kg. By eating more. Weight loss is not the focus, though. Because watching your weight doesn’t work. Instead when you quit sugar you focus on just feeling GOOD. Like REALLY GOOD. Clear skin, clear mood, brighter outlook…things that can be “watched” and experienced within days of quitting.

4. Buy the I Quit Sugar: 8-Week Program.

6. Know you’re not locked in.

You can get a full refund within 30 days, if you just don’t like it. I don’t want anyone feeling obliged. About anything.

7. Allow 8 weeks.

The “8-Week Program” bit in the title of my book should give it away: it takes two months to get your result. That’s how long it will take to get sugar out of your system and for your body to find natural appetite. After that you can choose to go back to eating sugar or to move forward eating a little sugar (fruit and some occasional dark chocolate) – but not in an addictive, pscyho way. Or you can choose to stay off it completely.

But, yes, you’ll be able to choose. You’ll be free.

    I was just wondering if this would be safe to do in your first trimester of pregnancy?
