Most people know that sugar is not good for them and the want to quit, but quitting sugar is one of the hardest things to do in the world.
The 30 Sugar Free Days program can help!
(You can now start the program in January as part of the Month Without Sugar, scroll to the bottom to see how!)
Quitting sugar is hard, because sugar is super-tricky!
You see sugar everywhere. When you walk by the vending machine, or the candy isle in the store, or you see a billboard, or a television advertisement, or you see these pictures, what do you think?
Sugar, sugar, sugar.
Every time you see these things, you know that they are full of sugar and we are eating a LOT of sugar. In fact, if you are typical, you are eating somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 of a pound of sugar every day…even if you don’t know it!
But if you have ever tried to stop eating the white stuff, you know how hard it is and one of the reasons it is so hard is because there are foods that act like sugar in your body.
What are foods that act like sugar? Let’s take a look.
When you see these foods what do you think?
When I ask this question of people, most answer that pictures of pretzels, popcorn, bread and other carbohydrates make them hungry (and that is the point!).
What are these foods (really)? Sugar, Sugar, Sugar. In fact, these foods raise your blood sugar more than the sugary treats above. That means that they are harming your body more (and adding more pounds) than those sugary snacks.
If you already know that there are certain foods that act like sugar, than you know more than most people. These foods (mostly grains, fruits, and starchy vegetables) act just like sugar in your body and if you have ever tried to stop eating sugar and were pulled back by your addictions then chances are the foods that act like sugar are to blame.
What is Wrong With Sugar?
Okay, so we are all addicted to sugar and foods that act like sugar. So what?
Sugar and foods that act like sugar are killing you, but they are killing you so slowly that you hardly notice.
- Sugar also does harm to your brain (think Alzheimer’s, anxiety, depression), your heart (high blood pressure, clogged arteries), and your whole body (diabetes is a horrible disease that one in three of us will get if we keep eating sugar).
- Eating sugar and foods that act like sugar increases your waistline. If you can handle it, watch this public service message from the State of New York about how drinking sugar becomes fat in your body:
Stop the Sugar!
You key to kicking sugar is to stop both sugar and foods that act like sugar.
Does it work? Ask these people:
- I just began my third week on Sunday, and my wedding ring is loose! All my clothes are baggy and I don’t think I will ever eat sugar again! I love how you said you can feel like an “alien on planet carbohydrate” … that’s exactly how I feel! I have found some wonderful farms in my area and I’m shopping at the market less and less. Thank you so much, this is exactly what I needed! Hilary B
- I’ve been sugar-free for a little over 2 weeks now, and Dr. Scott was right, my cravings severely declined within the first week I would say. Now I don’t even think about sweets! That’s not to say that at this point I wouldn’t WANT something sweet , but I have the willpower to turn it down because my cravings are no…t out of control. I’ve never gone this long without sugar or bread, I can’t believe I’ve made it this far Nerine E
- Day 11 here and I am amazed. I am down 6.5 pounds and 2 inches off my waist but the most remarkable thing that has happened is how I feel physically and emotionally. So, this is what happy and healthy people feel like…

All You Need is 30 Days
What is the best way to kick your sugar habit?
I have developed a 30 Sugar Free Days Challenge that supports you through 30 days without sugar. The Challenge comes complete with an e-book and daily e-mails that help guide you through the whole process. Thirty days are enough for you make the changes you have been wanting to make and learn how remove sugar from your diet so that you can feel and look better than you have in years.

- Don’t eat any sugar or foods that act like sugar for 30 Days. I explain what “foods that act like sugar” are in Sugarettes and in the E-book you receive when you sign up (see below).
- Sign up for my e-mail coaching so I can help lead you through the 30 days and answer your questions, you can also read other people’s questions, and keep you up to date with what others are experiencing.
That is it!
But, while it looks simple on paper, taking away all sugar and foods that act like sugar is no small feat and you need lots of support.
Here is everything included in the plans:
- An E-Book that will explain the program and show you all the foods you can eat and can’t eat.
- Thirty days of e-mails.
- Meal plans and recipes.
- Access to support groups focused specifically on the 30 Sugar Free Days.

More Than Just Weight Loss!
Thirty Sugar Free Days is not just a program about weight loss it is a movement towards better health. I wrote my book Sugarettes because I think that sugar and foods that act like sugar are destroying our health and yet no one is sounding the alarm.
Sugar’s effect on our health is the biggest overlooked health crisis of our time: It is almost as if everyone you see is still a smoker and, yet, no one is telling them that smoking is bad.
If you suffer from diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, chronic fatigue, or any other chronic illness, than 30 Sugar Free Days is also for you.
Over 12,000 people have already gone through this program. Join us for a month-long adventure to better health!
