Thank You, Partners: Beyond Sugar Shock Became an International Bestseller!

Bestseller Beyond Sugar ShockThank you, thank you, thank you, all of you amazing supporters and partners!

Because you believed in Beyond Sugar Shock, and were kind enough to tell your millions of fans and followers about it, my new book (the follow-up to Sugar Shock) became an international bestseller!

I’m filled with such tremendous gratitude to you wonderful people and organizations.

With your tremendous support, my new book, Beyond Sugar Shock, hit Amazon bestseller charts in many categories — far too numerous to mention — in France, Great Britain, Canada, and Germany.

Meanwhile, here in the United States, Beyond Sugar Shock became hugely successful, too.

In fact, my publisher, Hay House, ran out of books and had to rush back to press!

In the U.S., for instance, as the screen shot below illustrates, Beyond Sugar Shock hit # 2 in Hot New Releases in Healthy Living in this country, second only to a new book from actress/health expert Suzanne Somers.

Thankfully, wonderful people at Hasmark Services gracefully coordinated the many elements of my book launch and carefully tracked Beyond Sugar Shock as it climbed a number of bestseller charts. Thanks to Hasmark’s diligent eye, I can share some bestseller screen shots with you.

For instance, here’s the screen shot showing how it hit # 2 in healthy living in the U.S.

The # 1 spot was taken by a new book from actress/health expert Suzanne Somers.

Amazon USA KINDLE #2 HNR Healthy Living

 

Much to my joy, while Beyond Sugar Shock was becoming popular in the U.S., it also was captivating Kindle readers in France, where the book soared to # 1 in six different categories!

For instance, here’s the screen shot that illustrates how Beyond Sugar Shock hit # 1 under Diets and Weight Loss in France.

Over in Canada, Beyond Sugar Shock reached #1 in Hot New Releases in Healthy Living. (It also grabbed the # 3 spot at the same time.)

It also reached #2 in Hot New Releases in Personal Health in Canada.

Amazon CANADA #1 HNR Healthy Living

 

 

How suprising it was the book also did so well in Germany, where it hit a # 10 slot.

Amazon Bestseller-Rang: Nr. 4.116 in Englische Bücher (Siehe Top 100 in Englische Bücher)
Nr. 10 in Englische Bücher > Gesundheit, Geist & Körper > Persönliche Gesundheit > Gesund leben

Meanwhile in the United Kingdom, it hit # 26 in Books: Healh, Family & Lifestyle Books > Health Issues > Popular Medicine.

Now, it’s with great gratitude that I extend my heartfelt thanks to the many supporters of Beyond Sugar Shock.Over at Barnes and Noble, Beyond Sugar Shock also sold well, reaching #10 in Trending.

Again, thank you, amazing partners, for making Beyond Sugar Shock an international bestseller.

And much gratitude goes to Hay House, my publisher, for doing so much to promote my book, too, including running my article, A Sour Life Turned Sweet on Heal Your Life. More thanks also are due to Darcie Rowan and Jane Wesman, for spreading the word about Beyond Sugar Shock.

How exciting it is to know that we’re helping people around the world to break free of their sugar addiction so they can get slimmer, sexier, and sweeter.

The Most Important Blog Post I Ever Wrote

HR Beyond Sugar Shock_RGBDear Wonderful Visitors to this Sugar Shock Blog,

This is the most important post  I’ve ever written.

As you no doubt know, obesity has skyrocketed among adults and youths alike; and children are on a track to die before their parents if they don’t change their unhealthy ways.

At the same time, coronary heart disease, cancer, stroke, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease have become our nation’s top killers. You probably know — or love — someone who has suffered from one or all of these.

But all of the above diseases are largely preventable.

I call them The Preventable Big Killers. And ALL of these potentially fatal illnesses — and many more — can be caused by overdosing on sugar and/or refined carbs.

Think this doesn’t include you? That’s what I used to believe.

But the average American — and person in any civilized country is consuming (either consciously or unconsciously) HUGE amounts of sweets and quickie carbs on a DAILY if not many-times-a-day basis.

Each of you may be taking in roughly 170 to 228 pounds of sweeteners per year and another 200 pounds of sugar’s sinful sisters, which I dub “culprit carbs.”

And every day, it seems, the news gets more frightening.

One of my favorite recent studies revealed that sugar can make you dumb!

More research suggests that it can make you violent.

Your sweet tooth even can trigger type 2 diabetes, even though your doctor may vehemently deny it.

Simply put, millions worldwide are in Sugar Shock.

For the past decade, it has my personal mission to inspire and empower sugar
and carb addicts worldwide.

I want to help them (you?) Get a Life that Rocks™, as I like to put it. (I began coaching people to Sugar Freedom in 2002, four years after I reluctantly quit sugar on doctor’s orders after being waylaid by 44 debilitating ailments.)

So I invite you now: Help me to help transform the lives of millions of sugar and carb addicts around the world!

 

 

Join Me Tomorrow (Tuesday) & Email Your Friends, Loved Ones or Entire
Address Book to Get 
Beyond Sugar Shock 

Please join me tomorrow (Tuesday), starting at midnight.

On Tuesday, email your friends, fans, colleagues, health and wellness experts, etc. and invite them to buy my new book, Beyond Sugar Shock, all day and night.

Invite your loved ones or special acquaintances to go online.

Just send them to ==>> http://www.BeyondSugarShock.com/Book

Or encourage them to visit their local Barnes and Noble store. (Beyond Sugar Shock will be on the front table of 200 stores. If you go, please take a photo and send it to me, and we’ll post it on Facebook.

By the way, Beyond Sugar Shock already has been praised by numerous empowering gurus and wellness experts, including Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Daniel Amen, Brian Tracy, Dr. Joe Vitale, Kathy Smith, Marci Shimoff, and many others.

Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition — which I attended in 2005-2006 — was even kind enough to write the foreword.

On Tuesday, the official launch day for my new book Beyond Sugar Shock, my intention is to reach millions across the world with powerful, nourishing, life-changing messages about the joy, excitement and exhilaration of Sugar Freedom.

But I can ONLY reach and HELP millions with your HELP!

So please help me to help millions take back their Sugar Power!

Millions need to discover how to break the seductive, powerful hold that tempting sweets and quickie carbs have over them.

Millions need to stand strong in the face of clever, deceptive marketing of dangerous junk foods and empty-calorie sugary beverages.

Millions need to get back their energy, vitality, and sex drive.

And, of course, millions need to slim down and get healthy.

 

Beyond Sugar Shock Helps People (You?) Break Free

Beyond Sugar Shock is designed to empower, educate and inspire sugar addicts and carb junkies of any size (yes, even slim people can be hooked).

My goal is to help them – you? — easily, effortlessly, joyfully, even gleefully break free of this dangerous
addiction to sweets and quickie carbs.

Just letting go of your sugar addiction can quickly peel off pounds, help you improve your
focus, and even boost your libido.

(Just read Michele’s Sweet Success Story in Beyond Sugar Shock.)

 

Quitting Sugar Can Be Tough: My Goal is to Make it Easy, Effortless and Fun for You

Let’s face it, kicking or cutting back on a sugar or carb habit can be one of the toughest
challenges you’ll ever face.

That’s why I’m determined to make this simple for you.

And that’s why it’s absolutely necessary for you to put on a sweet suit of armor. You want to discover and use cutting-edge tools and tactics that strengthen and empower you so food manufacturers can’t seduce you to you eat their processed, nutrient-lacking junk just to boost their bottom line—which can add extra pounds to your bottom.

But sugar does a lot more than just make you fat, as I pointed out earlier. Lately, you’ve even
probably heard the phrase, “sugar is toxic.

You also may have seen the provocative “60 Minutes” piece on the subject reported by Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

It’s easy to ignore this sugar-is-toxic warning. Even back in 1998, I knew that sugar was
bad for me, but I still indulged. (Learn my story in Chapter 1 of Beyond Sugar Shock.)

Now, I urge you to ask yourself: Are you, too, cheating yourself because you mindlessly stuff
those nutrient-poor silly sweets or quickie carbs into your mouth?

It would be my pleasure and privilege if you’d allow me to help you, your loved ones, friends
or colleagues easily break free of your sugar or carb addiction.

In fact, it’s my burning mission. Let me guide you to the Luscious Land of Sugar Freedom and Carb 
Consciousness.

My desire to help you is why I poured my heart (and many years) into this book and the
companion Sugar Freedom Now Course.

Why am I so committed to helping you regain your Sugar Power?

Because when you undertake recommended Adventurcises (adventurous exercises) and
other suggested activities in Beyond Sugar Shock, you’ll experience a massive transformation
unlike anything you’ve ever 
experienced.

That’s my prediction — no, my promise to you.

Sure, your goal may be just to lose weight, and yes, you will easily peel off extra pounds, but that’s only a small piece of the story.

Letting go of your sugar or carb addiction will turn your life around. It will make happier, sexier, stronger, more focused and balanced.

You’ll be a far better you without needing to rely on carbs as your crutch.

So, I invite you: will you tell your fans, loved ones, colleagues and acquaintances about Beyond Sugar
Shock
 on Tuesday, June 5?

Just send them to ==>>
http://www.BeyondSugarShock.com/Book

Now, let’s take back our Sugar Power!

 

Wishing you a Life that’s Sweeterlicious (That’s my word for Sweeter, delicious, scrumptious, luscious and elicious, and sensuous)

 

Connie Bennett, CHHC, CPC, ACC

Sugar Shock! and Beyond Sugar Shock

Caroline Sutherland: “Accelerated Aging Comes from Starches and Sugars”

Special Gab with the Gurus Show In Honor of My New Book, Beyond Sugar Shock

Note from Connie: Yesterday, my new book, Beyond Sugar Shock, was released by my publisher Hay House in the United States and Canada. In honor of my book’s release, I sought to bring on an acclaimed expert, who shares my views about sugar’s dangers.

While celebrating the release of Beyond Sugar Shock, I hosted a special episode of Gab with the Gurus featuring Caroline Sutherland, the medical intuitive.

Sutherland offers tips on how to keep your body young and how to control your sugar addiction. For instance, she suggests that you:

  • Tackle the “Candy to Yeast Strain” in your body.
  • Fight cravings with proteins such as meat and nuts.
  • Deal with your emotions.
  • How to best keep your insulin levels down.

Missed my Gab with the Gurus with Caroline Sutherland.

Just listen here.

Special thanks to Lauren Hales, Radio Production Assistant.
 

 

Bloggers, Wellness Experts, Authors, Health Coaches, Low-Carb Advocates & More: Join My Bestseller Book Launch for Beyond Sugar Shock on Tuesday, June 5: Help Build Grass Roots Momentum & Buzz

bestseller bookAttention:

Mommy and health bloggers, wellness experts, authors, health coaches (who, like me, are graduates of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition), low-carb advocates, Paleo gurus, and former sugar addicts, as well as stay-at-home moms, business executives, struggling sugar addicts and others interested in health and wellness,

Please help me to help millions of sugar adddicts or carb addicts around the world.

On Tuesday, June 5, you’re cordially invited to join the launch of my second book, Beyond Sugar Shock, which was recently released in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

If you’ve never participated in a book launch before, let me explain how it works. Trust me, it’s really easy, personally rewarding, and even potentially lucrative (later on) to join us!

So, on Tuesday, June 5, you’re invited to send out a beautiful email prepared by my wonderful publisher, Hay House, to your entire mailing list.

Now, if you don’t have a mailing list, don’t worry. You can still join us. Just think about it: Everyone is either a sugar or carb addict herself or himself or knows one, right? (Just look at the people around you mindlessly polishing off those quickie carbs .)

For those of you with no mailing list, simply dash off this snazzy email to 50 to 100 or more of your colleagues, friends, neighbors, relatives — whether they’re hooked on sugar or not. Then, send to people who help  you such as your chiropractor, fitness trainer, hairdresser, or physician — even if they don’t “get it” yet. Just ask them for their email adress.)

We’ve done more to make this easy for you. Go here to get copy for your ezine (long, medium or short in length), as well as Facebook posts, tweets and LinkedIn comments.

Join our massive grass-roots effort to reach people who need help to gain control over their sugar or carb addiction and Get a Life that Rocks™, as I like to put it.

Why Millions Need Our Help: Sugar Is Toxic & It Can Kill You Before Your Time

Why do millions need our help? And why can Beyond Sugar Shock come to the rescue? Because the average person in the U.S. — perhaps you? — consumes at least 170 pounds of sugar and other sweeteners such as high fructose corn syrup, crystalline fructose, etc. per year. Insider figures cite far higher figures — 228 pounds per person per year! (In Great Britain and other civilized countries, sugar consumption rates are high, too.)

In addition, the typical U.S. resident — you again? — unthinkingly takes in nearly 200 pounds per year of sugar’s culpable cousins — refined white-flour products such as white bread, white-flour pasta, white bread, mashed potatoes, and white rice. All these processed foods — what I call quickie carbs or much-like sugar carbs — also are speedily metabolized in our bodies.

All those sweets and refined carbs put you into Sugar Shock often. That means these quickie trigger elevated blood sugar levels, repeatedly over-stimulate insulin release, cause excessive inflammation, and pave the way for nearly 150 devastating, mostly preventable diseases or conditions, including obesity (of course), but also heart disease, blood sugar disorders (from hypoglycemia to type 2 diabetes), cancer, and even Alzheimer’s disease.

To put it bluntly, if you put yourself into Sugar Shock on a regular basis — as most people in civilized countries do — you can get fat and sick, and die well before your time.

Will You Join Us to Help Save People’s Health, Moods, Inner Peace, Relationships & More?

So will you join our worldwide effort to help millions of people worldwide to shed pounds, become more energetic, reverse or halt type 2 diabetes, prevent heart disease or cancer, and even boost their libido? Yes, quitting or cutting back on sugar and refined carbs can do all of that — and much more, as you can learn in Beyond Sugar Shock.

How Will this Book Help Sugar or Carb Addicts? And How Did it Come About? 

You’re probably wondering why I think this book is special. Well, in Beyond Sugar Shock, I present a six-week Mind-Body-Spirit program, that gently, compassionately takes sugar or carb addicts on a fun, empowering adventure so they can easily, joyously release their dangerous, potentially deadly habit.

Briefly, here’s the back story. Beyond Sugar Shock has been about 14 years in the making.

Back in 1998, when I quit sugar on doctor’s orders, I didn’t know how to go about doing it. So while kicking sugar, I began to create simple techniques to help me easily let go of my over-attraction to those tempting sweets. In Beyond Sugar Shock, I share these easy tools.

Then in 2002, four years after quitting sugar, I began in earnest to coach people to achieve that exhilarating state I now call Sugar Freedom. At the same time, I interviewed hundreds of experts to learn about sugar’s dangers and to discover new cool tools, which I also share in Beyond Sugar Shock. (In between, my first book, Sugar Shock, also was published, and much to my joy, it was even praised by Dr. Mehmet Oz. Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra was the medical consultant, and Dr. Nicholas Perricone wrote the foreword.)

Beyond Sugar Shock  — which has been endorsed by Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Daniel Amen, Joe Vitale, Marci Shimoff, John Assaraf and many others — gives sugar and carb addicts what they need and seek. (That’s my intention, at least!

In fact, this book is what I would have loved to have in 1998, when my physician insisted that quitting sugar would make all 44 of my awful ailments disappear. (He was right!)

How to Join the Beyond Sugar Shock Book Launch 

It’s simple to join us. Here are the 2 quick steps to take:

  3. Get more marketing copy to use in your ezine, on Facebook or LinkedIn. You even get some fun tweets.

Also, did you know that launching a book is a huge endeavor, and if your budget is limited, you need to use some innovative ways to get the word out? That’s why I am so very grateful in advance for your help so that I can help sugar addicts worldwide.

So thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining us!

Questions? I’m here for you. Just ask away.
