Someone just asked me this, and I thought I’d post my answer in case it helps other people!
hmmm I wrote this earlier, snacking on fruit (like grapes, strawberries, raspberries, oranges, peaches, nectarines, watermelon, etc etc whatever your favorites are) is a good alternative. If you have problems with self control, then try just buying none of the stuff you snack on! sometimes if i want something salty, I’ll just eat straight salt… so maybe if you want something sweet take a teaspoon of sugar/maple syrup/honey/agave nectar and eat that??? kind of weird but it works for me!
also there’s tons of stuff that’s sweetened with fake sugar (stevia, aspartame etc) that you can find in the grocery store. you might want to try that!
Try going 2 hours without eating junky sugary food, then try 4 hours, then try 8 hours, then try a day, two days, then a week. Build up to it!
Stop buying bad food is the next best step. Eat cherries, peaches, nectarines, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries instead. They’re all in season, fucking delicious, and good for you!
Reward yourself with nail polish, hair clips, accessories, $5, a tv show, whatever you like that isn’t food!
According to the May issue of Men’s Health.. 2 out of 3 cereals are made up at least 26% sugar by weight! Whoa.. good thing I stick to old-fashioned oatmeal for my morning complex carbs! =)
I eat waaayy too many honey but Cheerios. Must fix that.
