"The first strategy is to keep sugar out of your house. This is simply an out-of-sight, out-of-mind principle. Don’t kid yourself that you are strong enough to resist the pull of sugar. Sugar is not only addictive, our brains remember that sugar gives us a kick, so when you’re feeling sad, tired, or grumpy, your brain says, “go get some sugar.” If there’s no sugar in your house, you’ll feel uncomfortable in the moment, but I guarantee you that you’ll feel better the next morning."
