I think I have a sugar addiction and I'm going to try the "reboot diet"

Like Tree6Likes

I think 3 days of this is fine..and won't hurt you. A week...I would question. It will help the cravings...but I still think doing a week of 1st week of Atkins or SouthBeach...will help too. Maybe a next step...or just really don't let yourself stop at Starbucks... don't have chips/soda in the house. I find...not having that stuff...helps me out tremendously.

Good Luck!
I don't see anything wrong with something like this for just 3 days, but then again I'm not a health professional so what do I know?

This from the person who has no idea how the TimTams jump into her cart at Target on occasion.

Good luck, spring! And I hope you see some results from your experiment.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I have a good friend who did this recently and he loved it. He actually stuck with it for 30 days, and was amazed at the way he felt and looked at the end. He says he plans to continue to reboot on a regular basis, and hopefully he will be able to stay on a healthier diet. He has many relatives who have benefited from a reboot. He lost about 40 pounds and says he has energy through the roof. Before his reboot he had sleeping issues and stomach ulcers, and he says he has suffered from neither since about day 10 of the reboot. His biggest piece of advice is to do it for longer than 3 days... He says you feel like poop the first 3 or so days, but if you stick with it longer you just feel better and better.

Two things that help me break the sugar cycle:

--No sugary drinks. It's hard, but when I drink Slurpees and Cokes and stuff, it just makes me want to eat sugar and junk the rest of the day.

--Eat more fiber. Complex carbs, whole grain, lots of veggies. Enough protein with it so you feel fuller.

Hey Spring, just wondering how things were going with this?

I made it through 2 and 3/4 days. The first day was pretty easy. The recipes on the second day-- especially the lunch and dinner-- were pretty bad. Way too much radish and beets.

I decided to eat dinner tonight rather than do the last juice because the thought of sucking down yet another cabbage/kale concoction wasn't thrilling me.

However, I was never hungry. And I think it was a good jumping off point for just trying to eat more healthily.

Thanks for asking!

Lol I'm on a sugar free diet too for my hockey tryouts. I'm dying!

I alternate use of products and use both Shampoo and Conditioner daily. Have been mod- CG for approx. 5 months. Straighten aprox once every 2 weeks. Thinking of going full CG.
I too suffer from a sugar addiction I think. It's like it's calling me. I know I have an addictive personality...loads of addicts in my family...and I have a lot of compulsive behavior. I read somewhere that sugar can be just as addictive as a drug. The only reason I've never been addicted to anything worse is cause I've seen that stuff in my family and stayed far away from it. I really need to kick sugar tho. We have a lot of diabetes and cancer in my family...
