It seems that we've all been on 'diets' before. If you're like me I was on so many of them that they began to lose any effect they had on my behavior. The thing about a diet, is that it is something you go on, but invariably, you 'get off' as well. The once a week 'cheat' day became more regular then became the norm.
The only way I could surmount this obstacle was to change the way I thought about food, to become my own best advocate, to find the place inside myself where I could embrace my own personal, "Sugar Sensei." I found that I could adopt a lifestyle that was based upon my own understanding of myself as part of nature, to eat in accord with seasons. It became simply the matter of using all the resources I could muster to feel good, all or nearly all of the time. Because I was cooperating with nature versus fighting it, the impulse to self-harm with food/sugar left me.
When you get off sugar, and are eating in accord with the seasons, you will drop weight. But because you will understand life's natural energies, you will be empowered to eat for your needs rather than for addictive cravings.
