Learn how to go Sugar-Free with the Sugar Free Fresh Start Course! This is the last program you will ever need to lose the weight you want to lose, balance your blood sugar, stop the cravings for added sugar and carbs, and live your best life!
The Sugar Free Fresh Start Course
It is a self-paced, 5 module course designed to be done in about 4, 5 or 6 weeks, it's up to you. You'll learn the science and psychology of why you eat and crave sugar for emotions or circumstances.
My course works by retraining your brain to not desire sugar in the first place.
If you follow my guidelines and do the work, you can be free from the hold sugar has on your life, lose the weight you want to lose and live healthy, happy and free!
By the end of the course, you will no longer desire to comfort yourself with sugar and refined carbs, you will learn new habits and ways to cope with stress, upset, and boredom besides eating.
Whether you just want to kick your daily snack habit, reduce your sugar intake by removing added sugar or artificial sweeteners or completely remove sugar for good, my course can hep you!
Relying on will power and discipline just makes cravings stronger. Most diets fail because you haven't gotten to the root of WHY you are eating to comfort yourself.
Sugar cravings or eating for comfort, can be seen as bad habits that grew overtime from how you respond to daily stress, anxiety, boredom, upset, etc.
The good news is that unhealthy habits or old habits that you've used over a long time in your life to deal with struggles, can be overcome. But it does require a little bit more than the 21-day rule or myth to remove an unwanted habit and establish a solid habit change for the better.
Behavioral changes and habit formation is an ongoing process, but the length of time will vary for each person and is dependent on a variety of factors.
Unfortunately when you decide to eliminate your favorite junk food; sugar and refined carbs can feel like an addictive substance that haunts you with cravings.
The best way to fight sugar cravings and create a new habit is to not give in to those temptations and reward that addictive behavior, which can be the hardest part.
Often when you go cold turkey, withdrawal symptoms can occur, sometimes it feels like your immune system has been attacked.
I have found effective ways to teach my clients how to combat this, as well as remove the harmful habits that have caused their weight gain in the first place. You will learn to eat real foods and healthy fats that satiate you and don't cause cravings.
Can you relate to this scenario?
You're eating a low-carb diet or keto diet and all was well for a week or two, then all of a sudden.... BOOM, the food CRAVINGS have hit and they have hit HARD!! Did you give in or did you grin and bear it and wonder what the heck happened?
I've been there my friend, more times than I can count and I know how grueling and difficult it can be, especially when you feel like you are doing everything right!
It's not your fault or your lack of will power! There are physical and emotional reasons why we crave sugary foods and high-carb junk food and there are ways to conquer these food cravings.
The palatability of foods is one common reason we crave. Food chemists create foods to have the right amount of fats, sugar and carbs that cause an intense desire for you to want more and more.
The good news is that you can get a handle on your sweet tooth!
When you have sugar cravings and indulge, you raise your blood sugar levels, and that blood sugar spike triggers your dopamine levels, which is your excitement hormone.
This releases feel-good chemicals in the body, which tell your brain that, the simple carbs you ate filled with sugar gave you comfort and made you feel good.
The brain likes habits and this becomes stronger each time we give in to those high-carb foods like white bread, white rice, pasta, even whole grains. All contribute to spikes in blood glucose, which continues a vicious cycle of eating comfort food, weight gain, shame and guilt.
Keeping your blood sugar balanced and removing inflammatory foods is the way I have helped hundreds of women in my online sugar detox course to eliminate cravings, lose weight, reverse insulin resistance, lower A1C and improve their overall health.
Studies show that in some people, sugar triggers a high dopamine response just like a drug addict. Some people can moderate sugar and some can't. I need to be an abstainer because moderation never worked for me.
