This week, I’ll have the pleasure of connecting with and helping my favorite charity, the Hypoglycemia Support Foundation, which serves millions worldwide, who have issues with blood sugar. Check out this organization’s awesome tool to help you learn more about the misunderstood condition of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
For this week, I’d like to remind you that last week’s Thanksgiving feast is a thing of the past.
Even if you’re still feeling sluggish and frazzled after last week’s festivities and possibly overeating, it’s time to nourish yourself with both healthy foods and nourishing thoughts.
So let’s turn to the amazing Louise Hay, whose awesome affirmations can lift you no matter what.
Now that I’m finishing writing my next book, I blew my diet! Now what?, and planning for the companion podcast, we’re going to have a new, improved, snazzier look on this blog.
Stay tuned for our new look.
Do you make a delicious gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb vegetable-rich lasagna? Can you create delectable veggie fries that has everyone raving about how they’re better than French fries? Do you know how to whip up scrumptious, low-carb, sugar-free, Paleo cookies?
In short, do you have amazing Paleo recipes, which contain no agave, no honey, no maple syrup, no coconut sugar, and no wine? I call this way of eating Truly Paleo or Sugar-Free Paleo.
For years — especially since I first started my Sugar Shock Blog in 2005 — have been asking me for such recipes, so they can lose or maintain weight and lead a healthy Paleo diet. They’ve been getting frustrated, because many recipes call for adding sweeteners such as agave, honey, or coconut sugar, or even alcohol.
Now, I’d love to feature some of your healthiest, sugar-denying, carb-busting, sugar-free, Truly Paleo recipes in my next book, I Blew My Diet! Now What? The Super-Simple Plan to Rebound After Your Carb Relapse to Lose Weight for Good. In addition, I’ll feature more recipes in another upcoming book.
So for this week’s Start-Again Monday, I invite you to have some sugar-free fun in the kitchen.
First, you want to know what it means to follow a Paleo diet. Your dish cannot include: (more…)
Even if you blew your diet last week, this week you can Start Again.

Here are a few words you can choose/use:
Did you know that if you have low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) today, it could turn into type 2 diabetes tomorrow — well, maybe not tomorrow, but five, 10, 20, 30 years from now?
But what if you were able to prevent that from happening? Better yet, what if you could Thrive Sugar-Free for 20 Years after you were diagnosed with hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)? How would you mark the occasion?
Initially, I kicked sugar on doctor’s orders in 1998 because I had hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), which triggered a whopping 44 ailments, including brain fog, heart palpitations and anxiety.
A few months ago, I began to consider my challenge. How could I celebrate 20 Years Sugar-Free? After all, I couldn’t or wouldn’t eat a sugar-filled cake or processed carbs. After all, I’m a recognized sugar and carb expert, the woman people call The Cravings Ninja™, and the bestselling author of the books, Sugar Shock and Beyond Sugar Shock.
Then, a few months ago, it hit me. The best way to celebrate 20 Years Sugar-Free would be to support the amazing woman, Roberta Ruggiero , who’d been so instrumental to my kick-sugar success.
The hard-working, dedicated, charming Roberta Ruggiero is founder and president of the 38-year-old non-profit Hypoglycemia Support Foundation, Inc., which provides support, advocacy and information about the causes, prevention and management of low blood sugar. (That’s hypoglycemia’s other name.)
…So today, to celebrate my Thriving 20 Years Sugar-Free, I’m pleased to share what my gift to the Hypoglycemia Support Foundation has made possible. Roberta and the HSF CEO Wolfram Alderson worked hard to develop this HSF infographic, which will teach you about low blood sugar, a little-understood blood sugar disorder.
Then share this infographic with your friends, loved ones and social media buddies so you all can find out if you or your loved ones are one of millions on the blood sugar roller coaster.
You could save people of sooooo much suffering!
Share this infographic with millions of people worldwide, who badly need this information.
See the infographic here on the HSF website and then share this infographic with all your favorite peeps.
This is a big week for me. Specifically this Sunday.
On that day, I’ll have gone an entire 20 Years Sugar-Free.
I’m announcing this in advance, because I know that I’ll make it.
But bear in mind that when I state 20 years:
- I’m not including my lengthy Carb Relapse and 21-pound weight gain during the grueling time from late 2012 to mid-2013, when I was pigging out on quickie carbs after my mother died.
- I’m also not counting the very few times that I had a bite or two of sweets to experiment with having tastes of sugar here and there. (For years, I don’t even do that.)
- And I’m not counting a few slips at the beginning of my cutting out sweets.
Stay tuned, because soon, I’ll host a webinar on How You, Too, Can Stay Sugar-Free & Healthy.
Talk to us: What’s the longest you’ve gone without sugar and/or processed carbs? How did you feel? Just go here to post your comment.
Please note: I never had the chance to ask a question in front of the 13,000 people at the Tony Robbins event, but just deciding to speak in front of this huge crowd helped me begin to lick my speaking fears. Stay tuned for announcements about upcoming speaking engagements.
This coming week, if Tony Robbins selects me at his Unleash the Power Within event, I will finally triumph over my absolute biggest fear in front of the 13,000 people in attendance.
Yes, I’m one of millions with a deep fear of public speaking, but if I can, I will speak at UPW even if it makes me feel uncomfortable, makes my stomach knotted up and scares me profoundly.
It’s not that I’d rather be in a coffin than speak, as some research suggests, and as Jerry Seinfeld joked, but it’s time to quit hiding away from stages no matter how big my fear.
Enough of playing small!
So why am I formally declaring my intention to Stand Strong and Speak to Serve™, as I put it?
