Now I’ve got the rest of my fantastic new sugar-free life to live!

For the past few weeks, I’ve been checking in on my sugar-free life with a new, more restrictive way of eating. For the most part, I’ve been pretty successful, but I’m not going to lie: there have been some glitches along the way.

You probably know (or at least think you know) the basics of a low-carb diet: no bread, no pasta, no potatoes, no rice, no sugar, and no fruit. The only reason why the low-carb diet is a popular way to lose weight is because it works, and works very well. But there are some people who are afraid of carbs, and they’ve had enough. They don’t want to lose weight, but they know how it’s possible. But they also know how it’s possible to lose weight and keep it off.

I know it’s not a super popular topic, but sugar has been my biggest enemy for years. I can still remember the first birthday I had where I ate a piece of cake and felt like I was on an acid trip. I almost ended up in the emergency room, which is how bad it had gotten. Since my 20’s, I’d been counting my calories and restricting my sugar intake for a while, but it didn’t seem to make it disappear; I would slip up every once in a while.

My Westerdal, also known as the LCHF engineer (link in Swedish), has battled sugar addiction since he was a kid. Although LCHF is an important component of his success formula, May believes it is insufficient.

Hello!

In the winter of 2010, I began eating LCHF.

Between 2010 and 2014, I dropped 80 pounds. However, it was a rough journey, and I often fell prey to the sugar trap. I hit rock bottom at the end of 2014, gaining another 20 pounds. I couldn’t stop myself from succumbing to the sweets once again.

I was totally ineffective. When it comes to something as ridiculous as sugar, how can you be so tiny and weak? Especially when it comes to LCHF, which is simple, tasty, and healthy.

I finally received it in May 2015: I’m addicted to sugar, insanely addicted to sugar. The LCHF program is an important tool for someone suffering from addiction, but it is not a complete solution to the problem. We need help and mental tools to keep us from eating ourselves into a corner.

Addiction is a life-threatening condition in which we are unable to discover our own way back to health.

I eventually received treatment from addiction specialist Kiki Keller and her sister Ingela at Arteget AB in May 2015. (link in Swedish). They assisted me in detoxing, hopefully for the last time, and provided me with the skills I needed to live a healthy lifestyle, and I’ve been sugar-free since.

I went a year without eating sweets without breaking a sweat last Sunday. I’ve managed to remain off the sugar trap for the first time since starting to eat LCHF in 2010. What’s the end result? Despite thyroid issues and yo-yo dieting since he was nine, he dropped from 110kg to 75.4kg in a year, a 34.6kg loss.

Without surgery, I was able to lose 208 pounds today. Milk feeding, weight training, and addiction treatment are all to thank for my success. My greatest sugar-free tips are as follows:

  • All of my triggers are being eliminated, including alcohol, sweets, dairy products (save butter), and food replacements. All of these items are permitted on the LCHF diet, but they are addictive and increase the likelihood of slipping into the sugar trap.
  • I don’t consume foods that remind me of my childhood. Do you have a problem with bread? Even if it’s healthy, don’t consume LCHF bread. Do you like sweet treats? Don’t consume LCHF sweets since they will trigger your binge eating and increase your chances of relapsing.
  • I don’t consume foods that remind me of my childhood. Do you have a problem with bread? Even if it’s healthy, don’t consume LCHF bread. Do you like sweet treats? Don’t consume LCHF sweets since they will trigger your binge eating and increase your chances of relapsing.
  • I’m searching for people that are hooked to something. Google can help you locate OA and FAA organizations. If you join a group and discover people who are dealing with the same issue, your path will be lot simpler.
  • Plan. I know what I will eat today and tomorrow. Food is my medicine and medicine should not be neglected. You can weigh and measure food if you are unsure of the quantity, but this is sacrilege in the LCHF church. And don’t worry about eating too much, too little, too rarely or too often. Food is a fuel, not a subject for hours of contemplation.
  • I consume no more than 20 grams of carbohydrates each day and plenty of oil at every meal. It relaxes and satisfies my body, and I don’t have to be concerned about gaining weight. I lift weights three to five times a week. I exercise toward the conclusion of a fast and eat more protein and fat.
  • You can eat a rigorous LCHF diet that excludes dairy and sugars. This meal is unappealing to many individuals. I’m allergic to eggs, fish, poultry, nuts, soy, and shellfish, yet I’m able to stick to a rigorous LCHF diet that excludes dairy and sweets. It’s really better for me than regular LCHF since it’s not addicting. Food should only be used as a source of fuel for us addicts, not as a pleasure or a source of comfort. It’s all about changing your habits and trying new foods. I don’t miss the whipped cream or Diet Coke anymore since I’m on a dairy-free diet.
  • Not only do I weigh things, but I also measure other things. Other factors are taken into consideration, such as the desire to party as much as possible. My weight is significant, but the number of days I can go without sweets is much more so. I’m just going to be sugar-free for today, but that day turned into a year of sugar-free days. I just consider short-term issues. Day by day, I stopped promising myself everlasting success – but every day when I wake up, I tell myself I’m not going to consume sugar – but I may eat it tomorrow. There will be no tomorrow, just so you know.

You may live a wonderful life without sugar or carbohydrates.

It’s difficult to live with a sugar addiction nowadays, when everything centers around sweets – birthdays, Christmas, and holidays. Sugar addiction is a recurrent condition: sometimes it comes easy, and other times you have to battle it for weeks.

The most important guideline for healing is to eat in accordance with the LCHF diet. Anything that your body converts to sugar should be avoided. Accept assistance from others who have gone before you, seek support, and stop hiding, feeling embarrassed, and lying to yourself. You may live a wonderful life without sugar or carbohydrates. I’ve lost weight by eating fewer than 20 grams of carbohydrates per day and 1.5-2 kg of oil each week….

  • Last year, I lost 208 lbs (94.6 kg) and 76 pounds (34.6 kg).
  • possesses a bachelor’s degree in engineering without having to retake a year
  • Being awarded a scholarship
  • Weightlifting 3–5 days per week
  • Blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels are all improved dramatically.

Good. All of the rhetoric about becoming ill, being sedentary, and being unable to exercise is untrue. I’m just 10 kg away from my goal weight. But, more significantly, I can now live the rest of my wonderful new life sugar-free!
