My health journey began more than a decade ago when I was a huge sugar addict, carb junkie, night owl and frazzled, overworked journalist. Not only that, but I was walloped by 44 baffling ailments, including scary heart palpitations, crushing fatigue, unpredictable mood swings, ferocious headaches, severe PMS, embarrassing sobbing spells; monstrous sugar and carb cravings, unsettling depression, and more.
Feeling so horrible led me to several doctors’ offices until I got the answer I was seeking.
“You have severe reactive hypoglycemia,” my doctor told me.
“All you need to do is to quit eating sugar and processed carbohydrates. Otherwise, you’ll die young.”
Shocked by the simple “solution,” I was intrigued. Since I was desperate to feel better, I gave up my favorite, sugary and processed “treats.” With weeks, ALL 44 symptoms vanished. Woo Hoo! I felt delighted, excited and energized.
I also became intrigued. Almost overnight, I became driven to discover The Sour Scoop about Sweets. At the same time, since kicking sugar wasn’t always easy, I began to began to find and create easy, powerful, research-backed tools to quit the sweet, dangerous stuff.
Impressed by my sugar-free energy, excitement and joy, people soon began ask me my Secrets to Let Sugar Go. That led to my coaching, guiding, and inspiring thousands of people worldwide and becoming recognized as The Sweet Freedom Coach™.
In late 2006, my first book, Sugar Shock: How Sweets and Simple Carbs Can Derail Your Life–And How You Can Get Back on Track, was published (Berkley Books), and it quickly became a bestseller.
Thankfully, many world-renowned experts praised it, including Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Mark Hyman, JJ Virgin, and actress/author Marilu Henner. Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra was contributing author, and Dr. Nicholas Perricone wrote the foreword.
Then, in 2012, after a decade-plus of helping sugar addicts and hosting The Sugar Freedom Course, my second book, Beyond Sugar Shock: The 6-Week Plan to Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction & Get Slimmer, Sexier & Sweeter (Hay House), quickly became an international bestseller.
I was thrilled when it was endorsed by Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Daniel Amen, Bernie Siegel and many other health and empowerment heroes.
