So I just got finished shooting some videos for you. I don’t think I’m a natural video guy.
It takes me forever to do one two minute video. Like 20 takes.
I’d rather write to you and communicate that way. But according to all the predictions – 80% of all Internet traffic will be video in the next few years so we all better get used to it.
If you have a message you want to get out –
it looks like video might be the way to go.
In deciding what content to shoot videos for Facebook and Youtube I asked myself “what is the number one question people ask about sugar when they understand that sugar might be causing some issues in their life?”
This one may not be the number one question that they ask in terms of volume because maybe folks don’t want to know the answer,
but once they do ask it – it seems to be the one they wince at me, almost bracing themselves, like I’m going to slap them as I answer…
Do I Have To Quit Sugar for the Rest of My Life?
It’s a reasonable question.
It deserves a straight answer.
The answer is:
OK, stop laughing or swearing at me now.
But seriously, like you’ve never heard this before but, – everyone is different.
The breakdown I use and which was taught to me by folks with tons more experience than I have is this:
Roughly One-Third of people can literally take sugar or leave it. It has no sway over them one way or the other. ie: The Normies
One-Third of people are on the fence or are episodic, emotional sugar eaters. Meaning they could either fall back to the first group or fall into the next group. They use sugar, sometimes for emotional reasons or maybe there was just a period of time in their lives where it was heavy, and they are not physically addicted.
And the last third of folks have a strong biochemical reaction to sugar in their body.
They have a high likelihood of becoming drawn to it in an unnatural way. They might be physically predisposed to being sugar addicts.
So how do you find out which you are?
Other than that the best way to find out for yourself is to get a little time away from sugar. A simple detox and a month or two of complete abstinence – or more if you can.
Time enough for your body to heal up and for you to feel how you feel without the sugar.
I don’t want to give false hope but lots of people I’ve worked with and even some high-level sugar educators I know have returned to the occasional use of sugar with no ill effects.
Most people need a guide to accomplish the above. Otherwise more people would have success in quitting sugar and I’d be happily out of business.
It’s a process.
No need to scare you. No need to question your willpower or your resolve.
But if you’ve tried before in the past and not had success – those are the folks we have the most success with.
Only you will be able to answer which third of people you fall in. If you’ve gotten here you’re either in the second or third group. But I’ve always felt it’s better to know than to not know. Lets find out together!
