Is Sugar-Zen Right for You?

THE REALITY OF A SUGAR ADDICTION

All of us have habits – some healthy, some not so healthy. Habits make positive or negative impacts on our everyday lives. Every choice affects the next choice, particularly when it comes to food. Sugar cravings keep growing as you give into them.

When dealing with a sugar addiction, the cravings are around the clock. You eat a candy bar to ease that urge, but it only returns with more fury and fire. At this point, sugar is in control. It affects everything from your physical wellbeing and weight to your mood and mannerisms.

WONDERING HOW TO STOP CRAVING SWEETS?

If you have a dysfunctional relationship with sugar, it is time for an intervention. Our Sugar-Zen program helps you overcome your sugar addiction. It introduces you to positive lifestyle habits that make you in control of your mind and body. If you don’t like how you feel or behave when around sugar, you can turn to the Sugar-Zen program to fix that.

Another component of the Sugar-Zen program is an optional capsule. Taking our vegetarian, time-release capsule is a way to stop craving sweets. They contain certain food-based ingredients shown to reduce those intense cravings when released in the small intestine, rather than the stomach. While the capsule is not required to achieve success within our program, it is a tool used to suppress your appetite naturally without stimulants or drugs.

R is for Recording

HOW CRAVING SUGAR CONSUMES YOU

Being addicted to sugar takes over your mind and body. Without sugar, you feel moody, tired, and irritable. Eating a bag of candy only satisfies the immediate craving, but doesn’t stop the next one from coming. Craving sweets is an all-day, everyday problem for many people.

BRING YOUR SUGAR ADDICTION TO AN END

How do stop your sugar addiction? Facing the truth is the first step. Be honest with yourself. When craving sweets, do you always give in? Most often, you think you are regulating your sugar intake, but in all reality, you are eating a lot of sweets still.

Tracking your diet is one simple way to know exactly what you are putting in your body. Recording the food and sweets you consume helps you acknowledge your calorie intake instead of mindlessly eating. This awareness helps you avoid self-deception and sets a foundation for you to kick that sugar addiction.

People often avoid recording their diet. After all, it is hard to look back and see where you failed. But you also get to see where you successfully didn’t indulge in every craving. Sweets don’t have to control you. Look reality in the face. Track everything – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

START TRACKING AND STOP CRAVING SUGAR

As part of the Sugar-Zen program, it is crucial to record your food and sugar intake. Get a notebook or download an app. Choose whatever way will help you make this into a habit. Then, decide a time of a day to log the information and set a daily tracking alarm.

If you have a bad day, still track it! Sugar-Zen supports you along the way. Recording what you eat is an easy way to recognize your areas of weakness. Do not leave out details. As you begin your path to end craving sugar, remember honesty is the best policy.

Enjoy Sugar

WHEN ADDICTED TO SUGAR

Have you ever consumed an entire bag of candy without even realizing it? You ate it, but you practically don’t remember it. This is a clear indication of a sugar addiction. You consume sugar to satisfy your cravings without truly tasting or enjoying those sweets.

ENJOY SUGAR

Being addicted to sugar is hard. You can’t stop thinking about the next donut or chocolate bar. Overcoming a sugar addiction doesn’t mean you need to quit sugar entirely. Rather enjoy sugar instead of beating yourself up about it. While this may seem odd, the act of enjoying sugar can change your relationship with it. You need to take the time to taste each bite and soak in what you are eating. When doing so, you are mindful and aware of your sugar intake. In turn, those first few bites will be enough to curb your craving.

As you begin to be consciously present while eating sweets, your mind will register what is happening. You will then have the choice to stop before the whole bag of candy is gone. You take control, and you decide the outcome. Taste every bite.

But if you find yourself once again mindlessly eating sugar, forgive yourself. Shame will not change your habits long-term, being mindful will. Focus on the next chance and move forward. Don’t get stuck on how you once were, but how you can and will be in the future.

THE SUGAR ADDICTION CYCLE

Do you feel addicted to sugar? You eat to satisfy those intense cravings, but you only stay content for so long. The Sugar-Zen program encourages you to enjoy sugar during the next craving and see what happens. Rather than battle against those sweets, actually eat them and love them. Sugar-Zen helps you create a new, healthy relationship with sugar.
