Is it hard to get through a day without sugar?  Do you rely on it for energy?   Do you crash if you don't have sugar?  Do you love your particular sweet treat and feel like you can't go without it?

If you answered yes to the above questions, you are addicted to sugar.  I used to be addicted to sugar and I know it very well.


I am here to support you to help you get over it once and for all.

I know, I know... addiction is a strong word, isn't it?  But many of you reading this are actually addicted to sugar.





  1. Physically and mentally dependent on a particular substance, and unable to stop taking it without incurring adverse effects.
  2. Enthusiastically devoted to a particular thing or activity.

Don't worry- you're not alone.  

Everything from bread to tomato sauce to chicken stock has added sugar.  No wonder you are addicted to sugar!  That 3pm crash is second nature and you know reaching for something sweet will pull you out of that slump.  You also know that you’ll be jonzing for it again within the hour.


15 Reasons why kicking your sugar habit essential:

  1. It's keeping extra weight on your body.
  2. It is weakening your immune system and causing you to get sick more than you should.
  3. It is negatively impacting every single hormone in your body.
  4. It is making you have emotional disturbances.
  5. It is contributing to skin issues.
  6. It is hurting your digestive system.
  7. It is causing inflammation in your body, a known root-cause of pretty much every chronic disease today.
  8. It is giving you false energy during the day and negatively impacting your sleep at night.
  9. It interferes with absorption of calcium and magnesium.
  10. It can increase cholesterol (yep, sugar, not butter does this!)
  11. It can cause headaches, including migraines.
  12. It can contribute to osteoporosis and arthritis.
  13. It can make your skin age by changing the structure of collagen.
  14. It can cause hypoglycemia.
  15. It can increase the body's fluid retention.


Here's the kicker: You may not have any of the above symptoms or concerns!  You may feel fine, have good energy, no weight issues, no aches or pains or headaches or digestive issues,  but you might still have a pretty strong sugar habit.   It is crucial to kick that habit now, before you have symptoms or health concerns down the road.
