Santa is a Huge Sugar Addict, Who Skips Self Care

Please Enjoy This Playful Post -- Fun, Quirky Thoughts While Stuck Home with Pneumonia

Santa Claus may embody cheerful generosity and innate goodness, but the beloved, jovial character has some serious health problems.

To begin, he is a huge sugar addict.

At every house he visits, the beloved gift-giver noshes on sugary, gluten-filled cookies that well-intentioned parents left for him.

Come to think of it, aren’t millions of us like Santa?

No wonder Santa can’t resist the sweet stuff.

Just think of Santa’s plight.

Is Sitting Killing You?

Will You Move More and Sit Less With Me?

Do you, like millions, sit for hours and hours?

Up until yesterday, I was one of those, who sat far too much.

You see, I’m writing this blog post while swaying my hips, doing squats, balancing on one foot after another, and/or dancing to cool music in front of my new awesome Standing Desk in my new place.

Bye-bye, back pain! Hello, happier, healthier, slimmer body.

No more sitting for hours on end while in the flow writing books, talks and blog posts.

You see, for all my intentions to be healthy and active, I’ve been naughty for years.

All that sitting has injured my back twice — we’re talking major pain — while I’ve been on deadline for my books, Sugar Shock and Beyond Sugar Shock.

Do you sit a lot as I did until quite recently?

If so, you need to learn about the deadly consequences.

Sitting can shorten your life — even if you exercise.

I’m Busy Moving… Back Soon

Getting Ready to Serve You

Please note that I need to take some time off for a while, because after six long years, I’m finally moving into my own place.

How nice it feels not to feel more settled.

As I’ve shared previously, in late 2012, when my Mom became terminally ill, I moved across country to be with her.

Since then, I’ve moved several times so I’m sooooo relieved to finally find a home.

See you soon when I’ll be able to serve you better.

Why You Should Become a Cravings Ninja™, Too

How I Became The Cravings Ninja™ -- Cravings-Crushing Monday: Get Ready for Peaceful Battle Success Over Sugar & Processed Carbs

Whenever I meet people (such as at recent Bulletproof and Tony Robbins conferences), people are excited and intrigued when they discover that people refer to me as The Cravings Ninja™.

Almost always, they want to know more.

It’s time to explain the phrase I was given about three  years ago.

To begin, my goal now as  Your Cravings Ninja™, is to lead you to Sweet Victory  over those tempting sugary, fatty junk foods.

As The Cravings Ninja, I’m here to guide you to easily, effortlessly, stomp out your wild, irrational, overpowering urges for nutrient-deprived snacks and meals.

Why do people call  me The Cravings Ninja™?

By its definition, a ninja is someone, who excels in a particular skill of activity.

Those mythical 12th century warriors infiltrated and went to battle against particular enemies.

Although ninjas often had to be violent,  I’m here to lead you into peaceful battle against sugary, fatty, salty non-foods.

Think about it. You can try umpteen diets, but you’ll never shed pounds and then keep them off for good unless you Crush Your Cravings for Good™.

So here’s how I became The Cravings Ninja.

Although I’ve been sugar-free eating minimal carbs (always quality carbs) since 1998, it took my having  Crazy Cravings™ and a Carb Relapse in late 2012 after my Mom passed away for me to really “get” this concept more deeply and fully than ever before.

Attended a Tony Robbins Conference to a Bulletproof Conference: Seeking to Serve You Better

Lately, I’ve been taking lots of time for me — so I can grow, heal and become better at serving you.

I’ve been in major planning mode so I can create a better future.

So tonight I need to get some zzzs so I can drive up early to Pasadena.

I invite you to think about your potentially glorious future, too.

You can create an awesome one in which you’ll find it easy to Crush Your Cravings for junk foods.

So please know that I’m off thinking about you often. In fact, soon on my Gab with the Gurus Show, I’ll be introducing you to some awesome products and people, who seek to help you to Get a Life that Rocks, as I like to put it.
