When you consume sugar, you live a rollercoaster life

I know…

Blanket statement, right?

From my experience, both personally + professionally, it’s true. When you consume sugar, you’re more likely to be in rollercoaster relationships and emotions.

What would happen if you removed sugar from your life?

  • Imagine feeling satiated the whole day, so you’re not reaching for sugar when it’s 3pm and sugary treats don’t even sound good anymore.
  • Imagine being in a romantic relationship that is stable and doesn’t have extreme highs and lows.
  • Imagine waking up feeling rested, knowing your body is satiated on a nutrient level.

This is what happens when you stop eating candy, cookies, sugary beverages, sugary salad dressings, sugar hides in everything!

Listen, I didn’t eat a piece of fruit for 7 years because I was so scared to eat SUGAR. In 2009, I returned home from spending 8 months in SE Asia where I contracted parasites.

I stopped eating sugar cold turkey.

Some of my private clients have had parasites, SIBO, Leaky Gut, IBS, etc. but have not eliminated sugar. This is where I suggest starting: I want you to spend 14 days without sugar.

Some clients have NEVER had gut issues or food allergies, but experience headaches, bloating and fatigue – these women also feel unfulfilled in their romantic relationships, the ups and the downs.

I was someone who LOVED sugar…nothing was rich or sweet enough. That is definitely not the case anymore.

I was also addicted to relationships that were explosive and passion – filled.

While crushing the sugar, I also had out of control ADD – I went from a 2.5 GPA to a 4.0 when I started ADD meds.

I wanted off after 4 years of taking, so I got off but didn’t know how to holistically help my symptoms, removing sugar was MASSIVELY healing.
