My name is Rani…and I’m an addict. It’s been 43 days since my last I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program. I have just signed up  to do the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program again, this will be my tenth time! I know what your thinking, I must be really bad at quitting sugar. Well your wrong, I gave up the sweet stuff years ago. Quite simply, I have gone from being addicted to sugar to addicted to quitting sugar. Here are my favourite things about the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program.

Really really ridiculously good recipes

The recipes on this program are flippin’ amazing! And each time you do the program you get access to a whole bunch of brand new recipes, along with some old favourites that are exclusive to the 8-Week Program. And rest assured it’s the recipes not my cooking skills that make the I Quit Sugar recipes so good. Not so long ago I called my Mum to ask how to line a baking tin…true story!

Life is so much easier

Imagine not having to think about what you were going to cook for 8 weeks straight. On the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program all your meal planning and shopping lists are done for you. Its like the IQS fairies came and gave me an hour back every Saturday morning. And gone are those mid week decisions about what to eat for dinner, which almost always end in me saying ‘lets just get pizza’ and my hubby saying ‘hooray’!

You can teach an old dog new tricks

Each time I do the 8-Week Program I learn something new, like how to reheat a boiled egg in a mug (yes it works!), or that I can feed my hubby bolognaise made with capsicum and he will never know…genius!

You’ve got a friend

Truth is, I’m shy. Before the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program the thought of commenting on a strangers Instagram post was enough to send me into meltdown. Fast-forward 2 years and through the Program I have connected with hundreds of people across the world. This wonderful community makes me smile everyday with their own stories, and are always there to help…like that time I smashed a bottle of tamari in my pantry and you wiped away my virtual tears as I sobbed into my stir fry! Studies have shown that being part of a community helps you to live a longer, healthier and happier life, and the I Quit Sugar online community is no exception.

There are no limits

I have to fess up, seduced by the promise meal plans and shopping lists I have strayed from the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program once or twice. But each affair has been brief and left me feeling hangry, anxious and willing to give away a kidney for a piece of bread. Not so on the, I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program. Sure during the first 6 weeks you give up sugar completely to wipe the slate clean, but after that nothing is off limits…pasta, fruit, bread, coffee…heck you can even eat sugar if you want to (but you wont!). The IQS team call it ‘Food Freedom’ and there is nothing like it!
