Addicted to Sugar? Break Free with Me! – Early Bird Deadline Through April 5

Are you addicted to sugar and/or refined carbs? If so, you’re invited to Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction in 5 Weeks, starting next month.
Because of extreme demand, many pleas for help and the fact that people are in Passover and Easter moods or liberation and resurrection, the deadline for the first Early Bird Rate has been extended through the weekend, until April 5.
Would you like to achieve freedom in the spirit of Passover?
Or would you like to achieve a health or spiritual resurrection of your own in the spirit of Easter?
FYI, if my choice of religious words bothers you, forgive me. What I’m trying to say that when you kick your sugar habit, you can be reborn, so to speak, and achieve an exhilarating feeling of freedom.
Why bother to kick sugar? The benefits of kicking sugar are many:
* You can lose weight and inches.
* You can get more energy.
* You can feel happier.
* You can concentrate better.
* You can get along better with loved ones.
* You can reduce your PMS.
* You may be able to get a better libido.
* You can reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, hypoglycemia, heart disease and cancer.
* You can fit into your skinny jeans.
* And so much more.
Learn more now how to Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction in 5 Weeks.
Again, the Early Bird Rate ends Monday, April 5.

Client Kicks Candy on Good Friday: Will You Join Her?

I just had a touching, powerful coaching session with a new private client, whose Christian religion is important to her and whose sugar habit puts her “in the deepest funk” and “controls” her.
After some discussion about today being a somber occasion since it’s Good Friday, she decided that “Good Friday is the death of my bad [sugar] habit.”
Specifically, she plans to kick red licorice and other candies for Lent, while it is still happening.
“Jesus made a big sacrifice for me,” she told me. “If I’m able to kick the habit, what an honor it would be. He would be so happy.”
I just thought I’d share this with those of you who are religious and into sweets.
Would you, too, like help to kick your sugar addiction? If so, learn about my Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction Program.
FYI, if you become a new private or group coaching client through the month of April, you also will receive free admission to my upcoming Break of Your Sugar Addiction Program, which begins April 20. (So you’re getting a gift that is valued at $147 through April 5. On April 6, the price is $177.)
It would be my honor to help you. To work with me either privately or in groups, contact me to set up your complimentary strategy session.
I have every confidence in you that you can Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction. And, if you do, your life can improve in many ways, from weight loss to happier moods.

Help for Sugar Addicts: Tips to Cut Back on Sugar

Would you like to lose weight, get more energy and possibly boost your libido?
Just kick sugar and refined carbs!
Admittedly, for many, that’s easier said than done, especially if you feel like you have a sugar addiction or carb addiction.
Of course, as my clients often admit and as I discovered back in 1998, quitting sugar can be quite challenging.
After all, for many of us, we learned to like the sweet stuff in our wombs! (Yes, one fan told me that when her mom was pregnant, she guzzled soda. Seriously, many of us are born hooked on sugar!)
So allow me to help you begin to break free. To get you going, here are three stories full of tips and tactics.
First, I invite you to read my Huffington Post Holiday Health story, 10 Tips to Conquer Your Cravings for Candies, Cookies Or Cakes.
