When you’re depressed, do you turn to junk foods? Then, do you get more depressed and gobble more junk foods? For years, I’ve suspected and been convinced that there’s a bona fide connection. Now yet another study, this one in Public Health Nutrition supports this junk foods-give-you-junky moods theory. Read the conclusion of this study in […]
Do you doubt your ability to kick sugar and ditch processed carbs?
Are you tired of failing diet after diet?
Today, I invite you to see it, feel it, enjoy it.
By “it,” I mean your new joyous, freedom-filled life, where you have outgrown your addiction to sugar or carbs.
Back in 1998, when I kicked sweets and processed carbohydrates on doctor’s orders, I discovered that conquering my sugar and carb addiction began in my mind.
This coming week, if Tony Robbins selects me at his Tony Robbins Unleash the Power Within event, I will finally triumph over my absolute biggest fear in front of the 15,000 people in attendance.
Yes, I’m one of millions with a deep fear of public speaking.
It’s not that I’d rather be in a coffin than speak, as some research suggests, and as Jerry Seinfeld joked, but it’s time to quit hiding away from stages no matter how big my fear.

Note from Connie: Today it’s my pleasure to share another yummy recipe from my friend Angelika Ilina, who has created a healthy, low-carb, no-sugar version of a meal you can prepare for your honey and you.
As you’ll notice, this recipe features oysters, which are often considered an aphrodisiac.
In addition, Angelika’s recipe contains Shirataki or Miracle noodles, which allow you to still have pasta and be low-carb, as I shared here five years ago.
Join us on the Gab with the Gurus with Dr. Hyman, who will tell you what foods to eat; how the food industry plots to make you a “a heavy user”; how you’re being fooled by so-called healthy foods; how to save money eating healthily and more.
I’m celebrating 20 Years Sugar-Free. Join the fun all year long.
Note from Connie: Since it’s winter, often cold in most parts of the world, and I’m home sick with pneumonia, my friend Angelika Ilina — founder of the Love On the Table blog for health-conscious foodies — was kind enough to share her tasty, easy, low-carb version of her Grandma’s Chicken Broth Recipe. As you’ll note, this recipe contains no gluten-filled noodles.
Please note that I need to take some time off for a while, because after six long years, I’m finally moving into my own place. How nice it feels not to feel more settled. As I’ve shared previously, in late 2012, when my Mom became terminally ill, I moved across country to be with her. […]
