Top tips for supporting loved ones with sugar addiction

  • Don’t buy them their ‘drug’ foods. Treat them in other ways; flowers, a walk, a day out.
  • If you aren’t willing to give up sugar, refined carbs and processed foods yourself, make sure you eat them out of sight of your loved one, especially in the beginning. Store them out of sight.
  • Encourage regular ‘real food based meals’.
  • Encourage ‘non-food related activities’ such as walking, craft, gardening etc.
  • Holidays, restaurants and socialising may be difficult at first. Choose options that will allow your loved one to stay on plan and encourage them to ask for suitable alternatives.
