Relax as Karly guides you through each day as you transition to eating LESS sugar
Why it’s difficult to eat less sugar
If you’ve tried eating less sugar, you may have found it challenging. First of all, sugar is everywhere – it’s in most processed food, in fast food and restaurant food, and even in a lot of the packaged foods you’ll find in the health food store! Sugar is center stage at our celebrations and holidays. It’s how we comfort ourselves when we’re sad or upset.
And yet you may recognize that sugar makes you feel terrible. You’re not alone. Many experts – including Dr. Oz, Ann Louise Gittleman, Jorge Cruise, Dr. Mercola, and Dr. Robert Lusting – speak to the health benefits of a low sugar diet.
So now what? You know you need to eat less sugar, but how do you actually do it? If you’ve tried giving up sugar, you may find it hard to resist temptation, day in and day out.
You may have tried using will power, white knuckling it, and bribing yourself (promising yourself a reward if you stay off sugar) to stay sugar free. But at some point, your will power peters out. After 12, 15, or 20 days, you’re tired of saying no. You’re stressed from trying *not* to eat sugar!
A voice inside says, “This is too hard.” You miss the taste and comfort of your favorite sugar foods. So you give up. You go back to eating sugar – more or just too much.
You feel so frustrated, and hopeless that you’ll ever be able to change.
There has to be an easier way to do this!
- Wouldn’t it be great to find a way to make this transition – to stop eating so much sugar – without the see saw?
- To find a way to say no to sugar without trying to eat perfectly, controlling every craving or white knuckling it?
- To have a relaxed, peaceful relationship with food even while omitting sugar from your diet?
Then it would feel doable, possible, and you wouldn’t feel discouraged before you began. You could imagine being free from the pain of sugar addiction and from the exhaustion of always thinking about what you should or shouldn’t eat. You would feel hopeful that you could shift your sugar habits and have the greater physical, mental and emotional health that you desire.
A sugar addict who found the way out
My name is Karly Randolph Pitman and I was a sugar addict for decades. In my 20s, I recognized that I needed to stop eating sugar for my physical, emotional and spiritual health. But even though I knew that I was addicted to sugar and wanted to stop eating it, I struggled to put this into action. I spent over 10 years (nearly 15!) trying to find a way to say no to sugar that didn’t leave me exhausted from “white knuckling it” or mired in shame every time I gave in.
What I found was this: Control is not the answer. Self acceptance, self kindness, and self compassion is.
There is a way to say no to sugar that is gentle, self loving, and sustainable. And it’s possible to be sugar free and to have a relaxed, peaceful, intuitive relationship with food.
How to make it through the first 30 days
I wrote about how I did this in my book, Overcoming Sugar Addiction. But I know that reading about it and actually doing it day by day are two different things. How do you move from knowledge and intention – wanting to stop eating sugar (or eating less of it) – into actually doing it – seeing changes in your daily habits and behavior?
That’s why I created the 30 Day Lift. This program gives you structured support to make the transition during the first 30 days when the changes feel most uncomfortable, new and scary.
I created a way to help you transition over the first few weeks – and in a way that is gentle, nurturing and kind.
You’ll learn what to do on day 3, on day 8, on day 20, and on day 30 so you can gently, compassionately reduce the amount of sugar you’re eating or stop eating sugar altogether.
You’ll receive daily tasks so you stay on course and rest in the safety of having a map to get from “here” to “there.”
Instead of getting Your stuff together what you need is…
Successfully getting through the first 30 days of a low or no sugar diet is not about getting yourself together. More organization, self control or discipline is not the problem and not the cause.
- The deepest rest you need and crave is unconditional self love. As Carl Rogers said, “Only when you accept yourself as you are can you change.”
- Learn how finding unconditional acceptance for even the bingeing you’re trying to stop can help you shift the habit.
- Create a more self loving relationship with yourself as the foundation for saying no to sugar. Meet your true needs instead of seeking nourishment in sugar.
Your body also needs rest on a physical, ground floor level – the rest that comes from regular, rhythmic self care. This includes eating regular, nourishing meals, having adequate sleep, and stress relievers in place. This deep rest moves the body out of fight or flight, the lower regions of the brain, and into the higher regions of the brain where you actually have a choice – where you learn and grow.
Not a sugar detox program, not a bootcamp
The 30 day Lift is intentionally a “lift,” not a detox or boot camp. That’s what you’ll receive – a lift. Think of a hand extending out to yours, lifting you up. Not pushing you, cajoling you, forcing you. But lifting so that the first 30 days without sugar feel easier, doable, and even fun.
- The 30 Day Lift is not an intense boot camp. It’s not a do or die approach so that you never, ever eat sugar again. Oh, that feels like way too much pressure and most of us feel defeated before we even begin!
- Softening your expectations – being gentle with yourself and allowing room for mistakes – creates less pressure on yourself. That is the most nurturing environment for growth. You’ll learn how to relax your way through the process so the pressure cooker build up of “I have to do this perfectly!” can subside.
- Beyond eating less sugar, you’ll learn how to be kinder, gentler, and more loving to yourself. Aim for more inner peace, more self love, forgiveness, capability, and mercy, sweet, sweet mercy.
What you’ll receive in the 30 Day Lift:
Rather than having to control your environment so you can say no to sugar, you’ll learn how to grow your impulse control and increase that inner capability of “I can handle this” – no matter where you find yourself or what sugar treat you’re facing.
- Each day for 30 consecutive days you’ll an email with an MP3 audio lesson and a little “to do” list. The audio gives you a “how to” that you’ll need to stop eating sugar, and the “to do” tasks get you out of theory and into practice – doing something.
- The daily audios average about 15 minutes long.
- The to do list includes spending 20 minutes each day meditating, in quiet, or in silence – a way of finding connection and lowering stress. In my experience, change is impossible without this deeper connection.
- Structured guidance on what to do each day – an easy map to follow so you don’t have to figure out what to do on your own.
- When the sugar cravings arise, you’ll have 4 different tools at your disposal – ways of compassionately working with cravings.
- Visualization and journaling exercises to cement this work on a deep, healing level.
- Proven ways to incorporate your spiritual practices and beliefs into your journey.
These materials are delivered to you by email, and the audios are in mp3 format for easy downloading. You’ll also be given access to a special downloads page where all emails and mp3′s are archived for your reference.
You decide when the program starts
If it sounds good so far, you may still feel concern that today isn’t the best day to start. May this week isn’t best. That’s okay. If you’re not ready to start right now, that’s okay. After ordering this program, you can decide when the program, and the daily emails, begin. If you buy it today, then save the instructions, including the START button, you can start it later when you’re ready.
Only begin when you’re ready. You determine when the daily emails and audios start arriving in your in-box.
You choose how much sugar to eliminate
You can tailor the guidance offered in this program and tweak it to your needs. For you, that may mean reducing how much sugar you eat rather than eliminating it altogether. In the 30 Day Lift, I encourage you to honestly (and courageously) honor your edge and to tailor the lift to you.
So you choose your level of commitment for these 30 days: do you want to stop eating sugar 100%, or do you want to reduce the amount of sugar you eat?
A balanced approach between restrictive diets and intuitive eating
You’ll also learn how to balance having a relaxed peaceful relationship with food with loving limits – such as a limit of not eating sugar. It doesn’t have to be either / or – a diet / restrictive eating /all structure approach vs. an intuitive / relaxed / all freedom approach.
The 30 Day Lift takes the best of both worlds to find a balanced, middle way approach for staying off of sugar.

Reviews and feedback from people further down the path
“I cannot tell you how much I am enjoying the 30 Day Lift! WOW!!! It is so comforting hearing your voice every day and having that encouragement each day. I am on day 3 of my container of “sugar free.” I am basically remaining sugar free in all my meals.
I am keeping a journal throughout and doing my best at following through with all my tasks. It has been so awesome and I really love this format!
I actually had a very stressful moment at work today and I thought I need to eat something. But……I actually told myself “It is ok dear one, you can handle this” and voila…no sugar consumed!!
Thank you so much for your program. It has helped me tremendously. I was bingeing out of control on sugar and baked goods for 3-4 months before your program due to crazy premenopausal hormones. I have now been sugar-free for 39 days and I feel wonderful. Your teaching about being sensitive and learning to be kind and compassionate to ourselves was very key for me. I am very grateful for you!
“My experience in using the 30 day lift – particularly on round 2 (I’m using it to change other behaviors beyond food as I found it so helpful the 1st time around) – is that all the safety that Karly has built into the beginning of the process is making it safer and safer for me to give up my self sabotaging behavior.
Karly has shown me that giving up these foods (and ways of behavior) is really about growing my self love and kindness. Thank you, Karly!!” – Char Brooks, health counselor/coach and attorney
“Karly’s deeply compassionate heart, makes her abilities unsurpassed in addressing the sensitive issues connected to our painful eating habits and body image.
“Her comprehensive and holistic mind, body and spirit approach, provided me with the tools I needed to move gently and lovingly down the path of healing. I greatly appreciate the gifts she so lovingly and generously shares.”
“I’m on day 17 of your 30 Day Lift. I’m 28 now and I’ve been on this “food journey” now for as long as I can remember. Not only do I have food issues, but I have a digestive condition to throw into the mix, which tends to make everything more confusing and convoluted…
I really want to thank you for your work, Karly. I freaking love your vulnerability. It helps me to remember the beauty of sharing my own “dark sides,” because we all have them. And we can all heal faster and with more grace when we’re all committed to the honesty and love it takes to allow ourselves to be seen.
This 30 Day Lift is helping me with food stuff as well as just softening all of my compulsive behaviors. The concept of self-compassion has come into my life in so many ways over the years, but you have had the most genuine impact. Thank you again from the depths of my heart.
“The true principles you teach resonate so strongly with me! I’ve had my “off again”, “on again” periods of highs and lows with sugar, but I’m happy to say I’m once again living a sugar free joyful life thanks to your wonderful support!
After being frustrated that the Weight Watchers/diet approach wasn’t working (all emphasis on behavior without the emotional/spiritual work) and that the intuitive eating approach wasn’t working (all emotional/spiritual but I floundered in the freedom), I was seeking a better fit.
Your approach with kind restricts, whole person thinking and a dependence on the Divine was a road sign that has helped me get to this phase of my journey. It’s not a fast, I’m cured kind of result. But a slow progress of more sanity, of more being myself and yet still maintaining boundaries and good sense with food and exercise…No sugar is a wonderful benefit but I know it is just the beginning. Thank you again.
“I listen to your soothing voice [on the Overcoming Sugar Addiction for Life audio CD's] often as I listen to you when I walk, work in my studio, and sometimes if I cannot sleep. The years I have been listening to your message have brought such hope.
“I really thought the way I was was pretty much the way it was. But looking back, I see such changes in my behavior. I eat a fraction of the sugar I once did, I am even more thoughtful about what I eat and now how much and when I eat.
“And the changes in behavior regarding food then seem to then spill over changes in other area. A real blessing. And you are the catalyst and the guide.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Frequently asked questions
Listen to an introduction by Karly Randolph Pitman
Q: What does this program contain?
A: Each day for 30 days you’ll receive an audio message, a brief written message, and tasks to complete for that day. Think of it as 30 days of virtual coaching from Karly to get through the first 30 days of a reduced or no sugar diet. You’ll learn tools and then practice putting them into place to move from intellectual knowledge (knowing what to do) into experiential knowledge (actually doing it.)
Q: How is it delivered?
A: Once you purchase the program, you’ll receive an email receipt of your purchase and an email inviting you to subscribe to the email list. Once you subscribe to the email list, you’ll receive your first email of the program within 24 hours, and 1 email a day afterwards for 30 days.
Q: Does that mean if I lose an email (or it’s not delivered) that I’ll lose the program?
A: No. Once you buy the program you’ll also be given a link and password to access a private page for the 30 Day Lift. This page will have links to all of the content for your reference – the audios, emails, and tasks to complete.
Q: What if I want to buy The 30 Day Lift today but I want to begin at a later time? I’m concerned I’ll lose the emails or that they’ll clutter up my in box.
A: You’re welcome to purchase the course now and to use it at a later time. You can delay your receipt of the 30, daily emails by waiting to subscribe to the email list.
Once you decide you’re ready, subscribe to the email list. You’ll start receiving these daily emails, once each day for 30 days.
Q: Can I use this program more than once?
A: Yes! Use it as many times as you need. It’s yours to use as you like. In fact, you can use the tools and structure of this course to shift any habit – whether it’s food or non food related.
Q: Do I have to give up sugar 100% to do this program?
A: No. Your commitment is individual to you. You can use The 30 Day Lift to either reduce or eliminate the amount of sugar you’re eating.
In the 30 Day Lift, I encourage you to honestly (and courageously) honor your edge and to tailor the lift to you. So you choose your level of commitment for these 30 days: do you want to stop eating sugar 100%, or do you want to reduce the amount of sugar you eat?
You don’t have to give up sugar 100% to benefit from the 30 Day Lift. Start where you are. If that is minimizing/reducing how much sugar you eat, embrace that learning curve. And when you’re ready – when eliminating sugar is your edge of possibility, I encourage you to take that step, too.
Q: How is this program different than Karly’s other products?
A: This is the most structured, hands on program that Karly offers, with daily tasks and audios to listen to. If you are wanting a structured map, this program is for you.
It’s also focused one area of “food stuff:” habit change. Whereas other programs, like Heal Overeating: Untangled, are more comprehensive and far reaching, this program is more focused on 1 area of challenge – changing habits.
Q: Should I read Overcoming Sugar Addiction before doing this course?
A: Yes. This course is designed for those who want to take what they learned in Overcoming Sugar Addiction and to put it into action. I’ve assumed that you’ve read the book before doing this course.
Q: Whenever I commit to eating less sugar, I end up bingeing like crazy the night before I begin! Help!
A: As you consider this program, please don’t think you might as well binge the night before, thinking this will be your last opportunity to ever eat sugar again. It’s not.
I’ve structured the program to be gentle, doable and sustainable. This means you’ll spend the first 10 days preparing yourself so you’ll feel strong and capable when you stop or reduce your sugar intake on day 11.
So dear one, you don’t need to binge today to get one last fix before you begin the lift. Care for your fear and reassure this part of you that you’re safe, that you’re okay – that you’re taking this slowly, one baby step at a time.
Q: What if I don’t want to order using a credit card?
A: Please call us at (888) 297-7076 and we’ll find a solution. We also accept paypal as a payment option.
Q: Why do you say this isn’t about will power? How else can I control my sugar cravings?
First, it’s about your habits in how you cope and respond to emotions. Habit change is not achieved through will power, the intellect, through gutting it out and white knuckling it. Habit change is achieved through unconditional self acceptance, self kindness, and self compassion.
- When you judge and shame yourself, you become defensive. You can’t learn or grow. On a brain level, you move into “fight or flight” and move to protect yourself.
- Being compassionate with yourself moves the brain out of “fight or flight” (or fight, flight or feed!) mode and into the higher regions of the brain – where you have greater impulse control and can live according to your deeper values.
- Judgment is a learned behavior and can be unlearned. Self compassion is also a learned behavior, and one that can be learned, practiced, and made a part of your daily life.
- Learn how to practice self compassion in concrete, specific ways during the first 30 days without sugar to move your brain out of fight or flight and into growth. That equals habit change.
Many of us believe that changing a habit is simply a matter of will power. You may think you just need to get yourself together – to be more organized, determined, and disciplined – and then you’ll be able to “get control” of your sugar addiction, weight problems, and more.
You do not have to beat yourself up to change. You find the will – the courage – to say no to sugar through wholeheartedness, by loving every part of yourself.
