I would rather eat dessert first. Its really hard for me to say no but Ive been doing pretty good. I have lost 31 lbs since the end of October.
I buy the 100 calorie packs of cookies and/or the 60 cal sugar free jello pudding cups to help my craving.
Like xdelaforcex said above, if you can get past the 2 wk detox, you'll do great. The first wk is a bitch but it gets easier the 2nd wk.
Thankfully I drink water 98% of the time so pop was never an issue for me.

My name is Dude and I am a sugarholic. I have been clean for about 3 hours and I need help. I would be interested in seeing the info on the sugar cleanse. Good job Tracy on dropping those LBs.

Substitute those sweets with alcohol & cigars. You'll never look back.

Good for you to try and change your life style! Studies show that sugar is 10 times more addictive than cocaine! Not easy to give up but you can do it. Take baby steps and give up the soda's for start. Did you know the ave soda has 10 tsp of sugar? Look at it this way would you put 10 tsb of sugar out of the bowl in your mouth? We use to consume 10-15 lbs per person per year of sugar in the 60's and 70's. Now the aver person consumes 150-200 lbs per year!! It's no wonder why we are over wt I use to have at least one candy bar a day till I realized I was putting on to much wt and could not drop it no matter how much I worked out. I have been sugar free now for 5 weeks and have lost 16lbs! Yep felt like crap the first few weeks but now I have no more cravens for the daily candy bar. I am not 100% sugar free and prob never will, I still use flavored creamer in my coffee. But at least I have cut down considerably. Hope this one testimony helps ya.

Chocolate. Mmmmm. Gotta have my chocolate. I do real good during the week while in the truck but go straight down the tube when I get home on the weekends.

We have a rule in our household - no real sugary food. That includes ice cream, cookies, soda. Try the South Beach diet; I like the stage 1 food.

While I am in gd shape and athletic I also love cookies,cake ice cream, jelly bellies. About every 4 months I notice I wake up in the night and just have to have whatever I have in the house. That's when I know it's time for a Detox. I do a juice cleanse for 5 days and then no desserts for the next 3. After that I am gd to have a handful of JB, or 3-4 cookies and milk and am fine till the next time.
I do not really drink soda and never really have. Maybe 4-5 a yr usually at a party or dinner because I don't drink alcohol.
