How to Break Sugar Addiction in 30 Days [The Rules]


It is clear that eating sugar leads to weight, mood, and health problems, but that knowledge does little to prevent us from wanting to eat it. The hard truth is that breaking your addiction to sugar requires you to stop eating sugar. The silver lining is that your taste and desire for sugar will diminish in just one month, and the improvement in how you feel will shock you.

From a former sugar addict to you. This video shares the ground rules, so you are crystal clear on what exactly it means to be sugar-free.

  • This videos right on time. I wanted to start on February 1st , for my quitting sugar goal! Especially because I’ve been obsessed with doughnuts.Thanks 😊

    • oh my try sugar free jello packets with yogurt. like the flavored jello packets, put the powder in the yogurt; it tastes soo good. i put other powdered stuff in there like Mg, an fat soluble powders with full fat yogurt

  • No more arthritis! No more hip and knee pain! I am very happy to be sugar free! Do not miss it and I have saved money going sugar free.

  • Thank you so much for consistently sharing great information! I never EVER thought that I could truly give up sugar and not be miserable. But it’s happened. I’ve lost 54 pounds over the last year sporadically doing intermittent fasting – but the majority of it (35 lbs) has happened since Sept when I got serious about giving up sugar. It doesn’t bother me one bit to sit next to someone eating my former favorite sweets.
    The BEST part is no pain. I was nearly to the point of walking away from photographing weddings because by the end of an eight hour wedding day, my joint and muscle pain was awful. Did I mention it’s GONE? The struggle is worth it.
    For me, mindset has been the key. Instead of feeling sorry for myself that I “can’t” have sugar, I’m so thankful that I now have the knowledge that’s changing my health and giving me new life. The 52 year old Pat runs literal circles around the 35 year old former Pat. Thank you for all you share Dr. Becky!

  • I took sugar out of my diet 11 months ago. I also started Keto. However. If I see a photo of a cake or cookies etc I instantly crave it. I have frozen green grapes if I really need something sweet. That desire has never gone away. I don’t eat fruit or drink fruit juice. I do keep crystal light handy. My sugar addiction isn’t what it use to be & that’s great. What’s changed, I lost 70lbs on Keto, that is something no other diet could help me w. I automatically do intermittent fasting. I seem to eat 2 meals most days. I also noticed that I use much smaller plates when eating. Like any addiction I’m wondering if that bump in dopamine is missing in the brain because of the lack of sugar because my brain lights up just from seeing a photo of pastries? I see Keto recipes of desserts & I know I can’t make them. I’ve stopped sugar a few times in my life, so I’m looking at this as one day at a time scenario for me now

  • hmm im sorry for never saying thanks but bc of u, i haven’t really been eating sugar for like definitely over a year now; thank u very much. stay safe

  • I quit smoking drinking but quitting sugar is a night mare. I don’t eat or cakes or candies. I am just heavily addicted to chocolate bars just plain chocolate I have to have it every day. Tried numerous times, and every time I have failed.

  • I have ‘pretty much’ given up all the obvious sources of sugar over the past five years and was able to drop about 50 Lbs. Today, my challenge @74 YO is to build/strengthen muscle and burn the gut fat I have accumulated through the decades. The metabolism is a very ‘tricky’ system to manage. Fasting once or twice a month helps me to ID the foods that contribute to weight gain and disease. That said, your metabolism is unique and must be addressed as such. There’s NO-MAGIC-BULLET! So don’t even look for one. Weight loss and metabolic health comes at different times and in different ways for each individual. Focusing on your good health 24/7 would be a good start to help insure ‘happiness’ and your own longevity. If that’s what you truly want.

  • I have been sugar free for the better part of 2 years, no more brain fog, no more fatigue, no more joint pain, and i lost 24 kilograms in 10 months. What more can u ask for?

  • Dr.Becky I am 71 years old and I have been addicted to sugar all my life. I am now prediabetic and I need to stop. I do not feel well at all and I struggle with many symptoms. I have been able to quit sugar for 13 days then I failed. Its like an alcoholic. It takes only 1 drink for them and it takes only 1 cookie for me. After watching this video I am determined to do 30 days and hopefully stay sugar free for the rest of my life. Thank you so much for all your precious advises.
