I’ve been planning to email you for some days to thank you for the ongoing support you provide in a very meaningful way through your FFS (Freedom From Sugar) programme, podcast and blog. I’m eight days into my second round of your 14 day FFS programme and, almost to my surprise, I’ve not yet had any serious difficulty in refusing any of the foods I committed to stop eating during FFS and I’m finding the whole process very empowering and rewarding.
I was a little apprehensive going into round 2 as we’ve been travelling for the past 6 days so irregular meal patterns, ever-present sugary junk food, holiday mindset and other challenges have been thrown into the mix.
Happily, the tools that worked so well during the first two weeks of FFS have made Round 2 much more manageable than I’d expected and I’m feeling much clearer and calmer mentally and physically with each passing week.
As we discussed, I’ve felt out of control around sugar for most of my life and have spent a lot of emotional energy over the years trying and failing to change that.
The principles of your approach make perfect sense to me and I really love the way that the mind shifts connect me with my own creativity, strategic thinking and playfulness. The replacements have also been an unexpected help, as they’ve taken away that sense of “all or nothing” that I’ve felt during many of my previous attempts to manage my sugar compulsion. I’ll keep you posted as I continue with the programme and if I have any specific questions or suggestions. In the meantime, thanks again for the fantastic work you do – you’ve helped me enormously already.
