Northern Californians: Get Sweet Help to Shed Your Sugar Habit on April 13 at Book Passage

meet ConnieSugar and carb addicts in the Bay Area or northern California, come meet me personally and get help so you can triumph over your potentially deadly sugar and carb habit.

Thanks to the amazing group, Left Coast Writers — which supports new and established writers — you can get simple tips and tools to free you from your addiction on Sat., April 13 at 7 pm at Book Passage in Corte Madera.

FYI, the timing for this event is fortuitous. It takes place two days before my 15-year anniversary of  being mostly sugar-free!

In this April 13th program, “Break Free of Sugar with Ease and Glee,” you will get “A hah” moments and easy information to put to use immediately.

You’ll discover simple, but powerful starter secrets to:

  • Become the master of your sugar cravings — and then turn them into your reliable allies.
  • Turbocharge your Sugar-Free Power.
  • Dodge the #1 mistake nearly everyone makes when quitting or reducing sweets.
  • Activate the positive power of procrastination.(Huh? Trust me — it’s a simple, calming tool.)
  • Pick yourself up after you’ve “slipped” and fallen off your less or no-sugar plan.
  • Dissolve your desire for dangerous sweets but still enjoy tasty chocolate treats. You’ll even find out how to get recipes for healthy choco-goodies.
  • Stop being duped by innocent-looking, seductive foods that are actually sugar traps.
  • Laugh at my — and your — silly-on-sugar behavior. (You’ll chuckle at my former Sugar Shrew ways!)

You’ll also get to try tasty, sugar-free Power Balls and a Coco-Mousse, that will melt in your mouth! I’m bringing these yummy chocolate delights, courtesy of my friend Naomi Tomoda from the farmer’s market. (Check back here, on this Sugar Shock Blog, for photos of these delicious treats from Naomi’s company, Mami’s Crunch.)

Special thanks to Left Coast Writers founder Linda Watanabe McFerrin, who invited me to this event. (Stay tuned to learn about Linda’s sugar story.)

In case, you don’t know my story, here’s my short bio so you’ll learn why I’m so committed to helping you break free.

1998, when she was pummeled by 44 scary ailments, including crushing fatigue, brain
fog, horrible headaches, roller-coaster mood swings, heart palpitations, and severe PMS.  When Connie’s new
doctor blamed every symptom on her
excessive sugar habit and ordered her to “Quit eating sugar or die young,” Connie very reluctantly shed
her habit. Much to her surprise, all her ailments vanished, and Connie
became energetic, focused, and free.

Connie finally succeeded in shedding her dangerous sugar addiction after
years of failing, because while transitioning from sugar-gorging to becoming mostly sugar-free, Connie created or discovered simple, cool tools, which helped her transform the dreaded, difficult undertaking into a positive, fun-filled, life-changing adventure.

Since 2001, Connie has been coaching,
guiding, inspiring and uplifting thousands of carb junkies worldwide to easily, playfully
release their addiction to discover that Life is Sweeter When
Sugar Doesn’t Seduce You™
