Meet Cartoon Connie!

Posted on

It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Cartoon Connie.
In this cartoon, “That Was Then… This is Now…,” you’ll get a glimpse at how sugar turned me into a Sugar Shrew..
Please bear in mind that this isn’t someone I know anymore.
This is the discouraged, depressed, frustrated Connie of 1998 — the Connie, who was besieged by by a whopping 44 ailments, including heart palpitations, difficulty concentrating, and mood swings.
But kicking sweets turned my life around.
By licking all those processed sweets, life turned sweeterlicious (my word for sweeter, delicious, luscious, scrumptious, and sensuous).
Connie’s Story: That Was Then… This is Now…
C1_jekyll-hyde_72dpiI hope this cartoon entertains you in its outrageous, exaggerated version of my once, sugar-addicted reality.
Of courrse, I didn’t gorge on red licorice while cowering in closets, but this silly image certainly captures the flavor of my previous addiction. (Pun intended.)
Anyhow, now that I’ve kicked sugar, I urge others to discover the power of living sugarfree..
The transformation was extraordinary!
Now, I urge you to find the humor in your sugar addiction.
When you see the absurdity of your sugar addiction, it can help you to break free so you can get a life that’s sweeterlicious — that’s my word for sweeter, delicious, luscious, scrumptuous and sensuous.
Would you like help to let go of your sugar addiction?
I invite you to discovfer how to easily, even joyfully release your habit. Just get my book Beyond Sugar Shock.
Join the Conversation.
Can you relate to my story? If so, please comment now.

Beyond Sugar Shock: Why I’ve Been Away a Lot — Coming Soon

Posted on

You may have noticed that I haven’t been super active on this Sugar Shock Blog during the past few months.
That’s because I’ve been quite busy writing, rewriting, and wrapping up work for my next book Beyond Sugar Shock.
The subtitle is: The 6-Week Plan to Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction & Get Slimmer, Sexier & Sweeter.
This book is the follow up to my first book, Sugar Shock! How Sweets and Simple Carbs Can Derail Your Life– and How You Can Get Back on Track.
Earlier, I announced Beyond Sugar Shock here and also here. And here is my my recent post about it.
Hay HouseBeyond Sugar Shock, marks the culmination of more than 13 years of researching and helping sugar addicts. (Of course, I also learned a lot by quitting sugar myself in 1998, on doctor’s orders.)
Beyond Sugar Shock is coming to you, thanks to my publisher, Hay House, which is the international leader in self-help and transformational publishing.
This book is designed to help you if you’re a sugar addict of any size or shape — overweight, obese, or even slim.
It’s also for you if you’ve been plagued by headaches, anxiety, crazy cravings, brain fog, fatigue, low libido, severe PMS, or other unexplained symptoms.
Beyond Sugar Shock will provide you with a simple six-week program, which allows you to release your sugar addiction easily and effortlessly.
For instance, in Beyond Sugar Shock:
You’ll get simple, fun Mind-Body-Spirit techniques to break free of your sugar addiction.
You’ll undertake simple, interactive adventurcises™ (my word for adventurous exercises), which will drive you to important self-discoveries.
You’ll get several dozen ways to stomp out your sugar cravings.
You’ll discover your sugar color code. (Yes, we’re all different in our relationship with sweets, and this knowledge will empower you to make the right choices for you.)
You’ll detox gradually so that your body, mind and spirit won’t go into shock as you move beyond your sugar obsessions and towards a better life.
You’ll get healthy meal plans and tasty recipes from a nutritionist and exercise physiologist.
And much more.
Hay House is releasing Beyond Sugar Shock on May 1, but in the meantime, you can sign up for a pre-recorded Sugar Freedom Now Course, in which you’ll get to learn some amazingly simple techniques to help you break free.
In addition, stay tuned for some special programs.
Stay tuned for a sneak peek at the gorgeous cover! And I invite you to get excited and spread the word to friends.
