In other words, you can follow all the steps in the article below, but if you don’t believe it’s possible for you to get off of sugar and sustain your efforts, you won’t!

Happy New Year Hope College! Here's a post about GETTING OFF THE SUGAR WAGON post-holidays from Jessica Lueptke at Valeo Training.
It's winter, we're tired, we're stressed, we're hungry, you're just ending the more-indulgent holiday season...our body wants sugar! This is actually a very normal response to how we were created - our bodies want to stay warm and cozy during this season and, with the shortened daylight and lack of vitamin D from our sweet, sweet friend Mr. Sunshine, we're looking for the carb fix to elevate our mood. It's not our fault! However, the problem comes not when we indulge in a sweet treat now and then, but when we over-consume, something that’s easy to do when sugar is added to many processed foods, including breads, yogurt, juices, and sauces. And Americans do over-consume, averaging about 22 teaspoons (88 grams) of added sugars per day, according to the American Heart Association, which recommends limiting added sugars to about 6 teaspoons (24 grams) per day for women and 9 (36 grams) for men. WHOA!
