  54. quitting sugar always confused me because it seems to be in everything. iโ€™ve lost a lot of weight but now iโ€™m at that SUPER HARD period where you need to just burn the stubborn fat thatโ€™s left. i donโ€™t struggle with eating poorly and i maintain balance, but i still feel seeing the amount of sugar i consume in a day (mainly in fruits) is so frustrating. things have been especially hard with me still living with my mom, and her discovering clearance easter candy, but im staying strong. also trying to stick to smaller fruits now like berries instead of large things that dont fill me up like watermelon!

  55. Sugar addiction is real! Too real! I have so much hard time fighting it

  56. i need some advice about something, whenever Im on my period or know when Im getting my period i start to eat a lot but the kinds of food Im eating isnt..all that healthy lol because once Im on my period i began craving for sweets and i wanna eat something that makes me happy but when youre on your period what kinds of food do you eat ? I want to eat and not gain weight from all those junk foods. Any advice??

    1. Since i love and crave chocolate when i am on my period, i usually try to trick my brain by eating dark chacolate (around 80% at least). Or i get a coffee (no sugar, no cream allowed) since its a substance that stops hunger and craving. It works for me, might work for you too but you have to like those.

  57. Okay but I am 44 kilos and 155 cm. I wanna quit sugar but I dont wanna lose weight. Help

    1. If you have no body fat you wonโ€™t lose anything, donโ€™t worry. You can build muscles for more toned body though and you donโ€™t need sugar for that๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ.

  58. I left eating things includes sugar before seeing this video. The first week was hard but i watched food documantries and tried to rush myself and its my 30st day and im too happy. Pimples are quite gone and i lost 1 kg. Im energic even in this quarantine thing. Also learned not only desserts, everything may include sugar. Its a poison for me now. Try and keep going!

  59. At least I donโ€™t need to be aware of restaurant food as they are all closed now #covid19

  60. Ill quit sugar tomorow and stard 28 day challange!โคโคโค

  61. I have a question. Is it works with legs? I mean can I lose something in the thigh during this challenge???

  62. I always try to quit sugar but our healthy food is next to the sweets in the cupboards and also I cant stop seeing them because my parents do the shopping and its their house ๐Ÿ™ ( also also we cant really afford the healthier options if too or snacks )

  63. Hey chloe you are soo inspiring. I want to ask i mean its not bad to have a cheat meal once a week. You said for yourself. So is it same for sugar?! I mean if i eat chocolate once a week ๐Ÿ˜‚ i mean i swear its not easy you know. Is it okay?!

  64. i think its very ironic that im watching this while eating panckakes(btd ive been doing her whole routine of shred challenges and im quitting sugar since tomorrow pls wish me luck or im gonna die)

  65. My issue isnt sweets and sugar mine is salty and crunchy snacks. I have always eaten really healthy meals but my savoury snacking has always made me so overweight and I would love to not need to snack anymore. I tried not to snack this week but I was only successful for 2 days. Any tips on how to stop snacking altogether? P. S. Ive start drinking more water and think this has definitely made a difference
