Why eat less sugar?

Unless you’ve been on Mars the past few years, you can’t have failed to hear about the dangers of sugar.

If you’re still on the fence, then start by reading Why eat less sugar?

But there’s more…

It’s important to note that happy healthy sugar habits aren’t just about how much sweet stuff you eat, it’s equally important to understand why you’re eating the sugar.

Think that stress at work chocolate break; the ‘feeling fat day’ that results in a whole tub of Ben & Jerry’s; or the post meal sweet habit that is engrained from years of cultural conditioning.


Here at Happy Sugar Habits it’s our mission to reduce your sugar intake yes, but to help you address other areas like emotional eating, binge eating, habit change, body confidence and other wider topics that interweave with the unhealthy sugar habits.

Deep within our philosophy is building sense of ‘self trust’ with sugar rather than a totalitarian sugar-free life dominated by restriction and deprivation.

We’re really not out to banish sugar from the world, just find a new model for being at peace with it.

We love good quality chocolate and authentic Italian Gelato as much as the next person!

We’re to help you re-wire your sweetness moderation, eat less sugar and feel great about yourself so that you can enjoy your life and all experiences with the best physical and mental health possible without any crazy diets.

How we came about

Happy Sugar Habits was founded by health coach Laura Thomas, who kicked off a blog one day after being shocked that no-one knew the amount of sugar in a Muller Light yoghurt and struggling herself with cravings.


Laura continued to write and share whist she started a 1-2-1 coaching practice around binge emotional eating sugar. You’ll find she’s crafted many of articles on the website and she share’s her own full health journey in detail here.
