Sugar World Summit Date Change — You’ll Learn the Sour Scoop & Break Free

Sugar World Summit headerPlease note that the exciting first Sugar World Summit, was originally scheduled to begin today, two weeks before Halloween, has been delayed.

I’ll announce a new date shortly.

So please rest assured, those of you who’ve written to me concerned that you’ve missed out on the many exciting programs, which will feature the biggest names in sugar education and addiction, relapse prevention, mindful eating, compassion, etc.

The Sugar World Summit is still happening. In fact, my team and I are deep into planning it.

JJ Virgin Sugar Impact DietSo why did we delay the first Sugar World Summit?

A bit of history is in order.

Many months ago, I excitedly scheduled the first Sugar World Summit to begin today, exactly two weeks before Halloween, the biggest candy-eating day in the United States — a day I dub Halloween National Sugar Overload Day.

This Sugar World Summit was timed to coincide with my big comeback.

After three years, I’d finally recoveried from My Bittersweet Last Year with Mom,  which had left me TAGGED (Traumatized, Abused, Gripped by Grief and Emotionally Devastated)..

Thankffully, I’ was now emerging healed and slimmed down after I’d suffered a horribly humiliating and humbling Carb Relapse.

Now emerging triumphant, I was ready now to help millions.

As we got deep into planning the first Sugar World Summit, the biggest names in the field — most of whom I’ve known for years, since before the release of my first book, Sugar Shock in 2006 — agreed to come on board. Our goal was to reach 250,000 to 500,000 people worldwide.

But as I kept inviting more and more exciting speakers and reconnecting with health colleagues after three years, I learned about launches by other esteemed experts, all of whom I greatly admire and respect.

These are people I want to support. These are also people, who can help you. It became quickly obvious that the best thing to do was to get out of the way of my colleagues’ launches.

JJ VirginIn particular, after inviting my colleague, the acclaimed nutrition and fitness expert and bestselling author JJ Virgin, to participate in the Sugar World Summit, I discovered that she was launching a new book about sugar, JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet, at about the same time.

That made me immediately rethink the time frame for the Sugar World Summit.

FYI, this is a big week for JJ Virgin. She is now giving away copies of her new book (until they run out).

JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet is an important book, in which JJ takes an original, doable approach to cutting out sweets.

If you missed JJ’s book giveaway — she ran out of books — then go ahead and get her free Sugar Impact Diet 2-Week Cookbook so you can make tasty, sugar-free recipes.

By the way, I’m greatly, greatly indebted to JJ. For about a decade, she’s been supportive of me. Not only did she endorse both of my books, Sugar Shock and Beyond Sugar Shock, but she helped me get my Lyme disease quickly diagnosed years ago.

Sugar-savvy-bookBack to the Sugar World Summit. Since I wanted to support JJ and other colleagues, it became evident that I needed to move back this important event.

But delaying the Sugar World Summit turns out to be just what this event most needs. Now, the Summit will be much bigger, better and more well organized.

(In fact, I’m very gratefufl to Jeff Walker, the launch guru, whose amazing Product Launch Formula Live conference, which I attended earlier this week, helped me discover many innovative ways to spread the word for the first Sugar World Summit.)

So now I invite you: Learn more about the first Sugar World Summit and the amazing colleagues, who will participate in it.

At present, we’re honored to have received “yeses” from the following movers and shakers. Among those who’ve agreed to participate are:
