"I had to reframe how I see sugar": Sandhya

January 7, 2024

Sandhya is a pharmacist in Australia.

In 2019 she started getting symptoms of breathlessness and palpitations.  So she went to the doctor and got everything checked out, but the only thing they could find was that she was pre-diabetic, so her doctor told her she needed to lose some weight.

She recognized that she overate, particularly sugary things.

So she decided to do a self-hypnosis course for 6 weeks with guidelines on how to cut out sugar, and it was life-changing for her.

Sandhya managed to change her entire diet to not include added sugar. She experimented with substituting one ingredient for another, so it wasn't too overwhelming. Plus her husband jumped on board and they both lost weight!

And the most important aspect in her transformation was that she was able to reframe how she sees sugar. Sandhya says that she hasn't been able to go back to eating sugar because as soon as her symptoms come back, she wonders: why am I putting myself through this?

Not eating sugar has become part of Sandhya's identity. She says: "I feel so much more free because I'm creating the identity I want around sugar. "
