Soon after shoveling those dangerous, processed, edible substances into their (your?) mouths, guilt, remorse and self-loathing rushed in.
“I blew my diet,” they may inwardly complain. “Now what?”
My next book is all about that.
Now, before you read any further, I have a confession to make. I was once very much like you. In my previous life BEC (Before Eating Cleanly), processed carbohydrates, salty snacks, and oily nuts were constant companions.
In fact, for more than a decade, I was a recognized health expert, author of two bestselling books (Sugar Shock and Beyond Sugar Shock), a super-clean eater, a certified health coach, and a life coach, who’d guided thousands of people worldwide to Sweet Freedom™.
But then, after losing my beloved mother to cancer, I blew my diet big time. After what I now call, My Bittersweet Last Year with Mom, my despair, desperation, and disgust came rushing in. While reeling from grief, Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and abuse, I simply caved into carbs. Sound familiar?
When I blew my diet repeatedly, I felt humiliated, ashamed, and angry at myself, because I know better. I’m a sugar and carb expert, for goodness sake!
Not surprisingly, all the carbage (carb garbage), rich cheeses, and oily nuts made me quickly pack on 21 pounds, and I became one of some 160 million adult Americans or 2.1 billion people worldwide, who are overweight or obese.
Finally, one day, I had enough. My journalistic curiosity kicked into high gear. I became driven to discover: Why did I blow my diet after years of eating cleanly? More importantly, why do millions of us in the U.S. and around the world eat badly, even though we say we want to lose weight?
For years now, I’ve been on a mission to uncover answers to these and many other questions.
At last, in my next book, “I blew my diet! Now what?,” I reveal my findings, and I help you become one of those, who succeed at shedding pounds, even if you’re also facing a broken heart due to your divorce or the death of a loved one, overcome by massive stress, and/or reeling after a traumatic time.
What about you?
Have you eaten really good for weeks or months but then blew your diet big time after your divorce, the death of a loved one, a pandemic, a trauma, or another life-changing event? Have you, too, found yourself deep into what I call Heartbreak Bingeing™, See It-Crave-It Gorging™ or Stress Splurging™? Have you, too, felt powerless to those tempting, but unhealthy junk foods?
In my new, easy-to-read-and-use book, you’ll learn why you blew your diet and then get a three-week program full of super-simple, on-the-go, science-based tactics that will help you slim down for good.
Take heart. You can succeed at taking back your power. More info is coming soon.
