About My Book, I blew my diet! Now what?

Every day, around the world, millions of people cave into their cravings for junk foods filled (if not overflowing) with sugar, gluten, unhealthy fats, and other sweeteners.

Soon after shoveling those dangerous, processed, edible substances into their (your?) mouths, guilt, remorse and self-loathing rushed in.

“I blew my diet,” they wail. “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 junk foods and I were constant companions.

Indeed, eight years ago, I was a recognized author of two bestselling books (Sugar Shock and Beyond Sugar Shock), a super-clean eater for more than a decade, a certified health coach. and a life coach, who’d guided thousands of people worldwide to Sweet Freedom™.

But then, after my cancer-stricken mother died, I blew my diet big time.

To summarize, my despair, desperation, and disgust came rushing in after I endured the most heartbreaking year, during which I helplessly watched my poor disease-plagued mother angrily lose the battle to the deadly disease. (Unfortunately, often, while dying, cancer made my Mom very mean, irrational, and cruel, especially to me.)

When Mom was gone, I didn’t eat badly just once or twice. No, my Dietary Downfall went on for months and months and months.

While grieving, reeling from PTSD, and healing from abuse, I forgot my sweet, clean-carbs commitment.

The worst part is that I couldn’t seem to stop rushing to carbs (but not sugar). 

When I blew my diet repeatedly, I felt horribly humiliated, ashamed, and angry at myself.

I know better. I’m a sugar and carb expert, for goodness sake!

Let me invite you into a scene I repeated often.  For months, I went to move theaters and gorged on fatty, salty, nutrient-deprived popcorn. Likewise, I clamored after other fiber-stripped carb garbage, which I call carbage. (Nowadays, I have a dramatic, relatable, humorous tale about popcorn and me.)

Not surprisingly, all that carbage made me pack on 21 pounds. At the time, I became a statistic — one of some 160 million adult Americans or 2.1 billion people worldwide, who are overweight or obese.

Now you may think that I didn’t gain that much weight. But for me, it was horrifying. I’d became a big fraud.

But one day, after months of caving into my carb cravings and moving to a new area miles away from all that pain, I woke up.

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, I began to think about people just like me.  Why do millions of us in the U.S. and around the world blow our diets with all kinds of unhealthy sort-of foods, which we know will make us fat?

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.

I’m excited for you to learn what I’ve learned during my multi-year investigation. Here’s a sneak peek:
