In this video, we’re going to talk about the best way to get off sugar.

The first question is, why is it so hard to give up sugar?

The simple answer is that you’re doing it without your body’s help. When you try to give up sugar, and you still have cravings, you’re fighting an uphill battle. It takes a tremendous amount of willpower and self-discipline.

But what if you were able to give up your addiction and craving for sugar?

When you eat sugar, you experience a spike in dopamine. Dopamine will give you the sensation of pleasure for 90 to 120 seconds.

After about two minutes, you then experience a spike of cortisol, which makes you feel stressed. When I eat sugar, I feel awful for at least 20 minutes, if not an hour or two.

Sugar can cause…

• Irritability

• Grouchiness

• Vision problems

• Brain fog

• Poor concentration

• More sugar cravings

Many people are so used to these side effects that they don’t realize how good they can feel if they stop eating sugar.

The best ways to get off sugar are:

• Don’t do it gradually - There is no such thing as a sugar detox

• Go to two meals per day, staying under 30g crabs daily

• Take MCT oil

• When you crave sugar, have a protein and some sea salt
