I know exactly how you are feeling! I too am a sugar addict and I know how hard it is to stop.
But, YOU CAN DO IT! Do you have the 21DSD book? Lots of great tips and suggestions to help you succeed. I would also suggest trying some of the supplements found on pages 40-43 in the book.
Here are some other things that can help:
1. Print out the daily success log (found at balancedbites.com/21DSD) and track everything you eat and how you are feeling.
2. Sign up for the daily emails to help you each day with motivation.
3. Tell everyone you know that you are starting the detox. Post it on Facebook and tell your family.
4. See if you can find some friends to do the detox with you. You can even make a private group for your friends on Facebook to help each other.
5. Check the 21DSD Facebook page daily for motivation and support.
6. Reach out for help through the 21DSD Facebook page or the forums.
Read through the book and set yourself up to succeed. Focus, and believe in yourself. We do!
Are you ready for some tough love? There is nothing stopping you from completing a 21DSD in excellence. It just takes awareness and a shift in how you think about eating.
Every time we eat, we're making a choice about what we put in our mouths. When you eat something on the No Foods List, it's a choice. The "all or nothing" thing is a story you tell yourself that actually makes it harder for you to get back on track!
If you slip up, STOP! Take a moment to be aware of what led to the slip-up (stress, inattentiveness, being lazy, self-sabotage, being hangry, etc.) and get clear about that trigger. Acknowledge it. Then forgive yourself, and get back on plan. Don't punish yourself and start over at Day 1. Move on and make better choices. When you keep going, it gets easier.
You can totally do this. Choose to be UNSTOPPABLE!

I hope your 21 day challenge is going well. Mine went well, for four days... I was feeling better than I have in a VERY long time. I had energy, I was happy, I slept well and more! Then on day four I overate a bit on pecans and had one more piece of fruit than is allowed.
Well, I have always been an all or nothing type of person. So this started me off on a slippery slope. Day five I fell flat on my face, eating every sugary, grainy and fried thing in sight. Needless to say I felt incredibly awful. My body was screaming at me to stop from the first French fry. Did I listen? Of course not. Out of habit I ate until I felt sick. And then did the same for day six and seven.
Today was supposed to be my day 1 do-over. And it was awful, by no ones fault but my own.
I am just at the end of my rope. I have been a hard-core sugar addict for far too long. I need to follow a paleo and sugar free lifestyle forever. I feel my best when I do but I always seem to mess it up and then I just can't figure out how to get back on track...
Thank you in advance
