About Sugar Shock Cartoons

Let me bring you some good-natured mirth and merriment, giggles and guffaws, along with lots of smiles.

Meet Sugar Shock Cartoons, which are designed to lift your spirits, help you see the error of your unhealthy ways and

That’s exactly what we all need, especially when we look at or are suffering from serious health and wellness issues.

Laughter, after all, has been hailed as the best medicine.

For more than a decade — since I became a wellness advocate after quitting sugar and processed carbs on doctor’s orders and then an author (Sugar Shock and Beyond Sugar Shock) and Sweet Freedom coach — been saddened by the preponderance of seriousness.

Enough already!

It’s time to ditch your glum, dour or morose feelings — even those about being hooked on junk foods filled with sugar, carbs, fat and salt.

When you quit those dangerous processed sugars and carbs and start eating cleanly, that’s not the time to feel melancholy, dejected or peevish.

Eating wholesome, sugar-free, gluten-free, organic (if possible) foods and having smart habits means that you’ll have a sweeter, happier and more joyful life.

It’s time to get excited. It’s time to smile, chuckle and laugh.

Which brings me to the point of Sugar Shock Cartoons.

Laughter is the missing ingredient in many diet plans and in many people’s lives, for that matter.

So what if  every day, you can be taunted by unhealthy junk foods?

So what if unhealthy junk foods seek to tempt you in our convenience-driven, fast-paced world?

Instead become a calm, active charismatic person, who is dedicated to health and wellness.

Remember, levity is not only healthy for you, but it performs a valuable role to help you deal with serious subjects such as those I discuss.

Sugar Shock Cartoons are intended to be humorous, if not ludicrous, even shocking.

But they’re also designed to be entertaining. But bear in mind that they have a strong element of truth.

So let’s have some fun together taking a whimsical approach.

Join me in seeing the absurdity of your Crazy Cravings™ (as I call them) for junk foods full of sugar, carbs, fat or salt.

Then share these cartoons, which are intended to help you chuckle, laugh or smile at those and other unhealthy temptations.

Now, thanks to talented cartoonist Isabella Bannerman, you now can look at your health-harming sugar addiction, Crazy Cravings, and other unhealthy habits with

Why cartoons?

One day after I’d had enough seriousness, trauma and heartbreak, I’d had enough. So Shock Cartoons were born.

Bear in mind that you can find lots of research about the power of humor and laughter.

So join me. Chuckle, crack up or, at least, smile with us at the absurdity of our Sugar Shock World.

Remember, your friends, relatives and co-workers need some humor, too.
