Why I Want to Free You from Sugar: My Bio & Tale
Connie Bennett is a charismatic transformational
speaker, bestselling author, life coach, health coach, and self-mocking former sugar
addict, who is now known as The Sugar Liberator. An experienced journalist, Connie is author of the new book, Beyond Sugar Shock: The 6-Week Plan to Break Free of Your
Sugar Addiction & Get Slimmer, Sexier & Sweeter, an international bestseller that has been endorsed by Dr.
Wayne Dyer, Dr. Christiane Northrup, and Dr. Daniel Amen. Her first book, Sugar Shock! How Sweets and Simple Carbs Can
Derail Your Life—And How You Can Get Back on Track, was a bestseller that was praised by America’s Favorite
Doctor, Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Connie’s sour-to-sweet journey began in
1998, when she was pummeled by 44 scary ailments, including crushing fatigue, brain
fog, horrible headaches, roller-coaster mood swings, heart palpitations, and severe PMS. When Connie’s new
doctor blamed every symptom on her
excessive sugar habit and ordered her to “Quit eating sugar or die young,” Connie very reluctantly shed
her habit. Much to her surprise, all her ailments vanished, and Connie
became energetic, focused, and free.
Connie finally succeeded in shedding her dangerous sugar addiction after
years of failing, because while transitioning from sugar-gorging to becoming mostly sugar-free, Connie created or discovered simple, cool tools, which helped her transform the dreaded, difficult undertaking into a positive, fun-filled, life-changing adventure.
Since 2001, Connie has been coaching,
guiding, inspiring and uplifting thousands of carb junkies worldwide to easily, playfully
release their addiction to discover that Life is Sweeter When
Sugar Doesn’t Seduce You™.
Connie runs the popular Sugar Freedom Now Retreat, a virtual and/or live event, which is the companion program to Beyond Sugar Shock. She also hosts the Gab with the Gurus
Radio Show, for which she interviews top names in a variety of fields from
health to the Law of Attraction.and hosts the Gab
with the Gurus Radio Show. Connie studied at the Institute for
Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), the Institute for Integrative
Nutrition (IIN), and Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. Get

Connie is now planning The Sugar Freedom Tour, which celebrates her 15 years of being mostly sugar-free and is dedicated to her recently deceased mother. To invite Connie to visit your area, apply here.
Debunk the much-cited notion about calories. He’ll tell you that a calorie is not a calorie.
Explain how chronic disease has skyrocketed in the past 30 years and
tell you how the food industry has played a major role by pouring more
and more sugar into their foods–which has disastrously altered our
biochemistry and made our eating habits veer out of control.
Give you ideas to readjust your key hormones to help you shed weight and regulate your hunger.
Share societal strategies to improve the health of the next generation.
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.
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 Shockalready 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.
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?
Wishing you a Life that’s Sweeterlicious (That’s my word for Sweeter, delicious, scrumptious, luscious and elicious, and sensuous)

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.)
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 Shockcome 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.
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!)
Attention, Bloggers: Another way to join our Beyond Sugar Shock Book Launch is to blog about this book or to post a review. We’re also offering you two books — one for you and one to give away as a prize. For details on the Blogger Book Launch, please contact me, and I’ll send you details.
By the way, you may be wondering why I’m holding a grassroots effort. Suffice it to say that in these times of social media, as an author, you have an amazing opportunity to directly reach many of the people you serve, which is very exciting.
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!
