With all due respect – “You don’t know what you don’t know”. There is always something to learn. Nutrition, weight loss, exercise, lifestyle changes are not as easy as a ‘google search’ and 1-2-3.

If it was, we ALL would be at our ideal weight, no medications, no stress, normal BP, No Diabetes, No High Cholesterol, No inflammation, etc – I think you get the point.

My goal is to help bridge the gap between your weight loss/eating struggles /Cravings and the goals you’re trying to achieve not just for the short-term, but for LIFE!

“I Cut Out Sweets/Desserts: Why am I Still NOT Losing Weight?”

Reason #1 Restricting carbs/calories too much over a long period of time

I will agree that having controls on the amount of ‘added sugar’ we take in is vital to weight management and overall health.


‘Added sugar’ and ‘natural sugar’ have two totally different nutrient profiles and effects on the body.

Added sugar, which tend to exist in highly processed foods and baked goods general have a low nutrient profile. Ultimately having negative effects on the body: not really full so we keep eating, such as weight gain that leads to weight-related health complications.

Natural sugar from fruit and dairy products (low-fat milk -or dairy substitutes such as lactose-free/soy milk- and LF yogurt) are packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber which impacts our body in a positive manner. Such as feeling full and having less desire to snack and for heads-off cravings.

What to do instead…

As more whole foods (less processed) are introduced into your daily eating pattern, you will organically scale down the amount of “added sugar” you eat (and even desire to want – but this happens over time).

It’s all about balance not elimination!

Reason #2 Over-eating food/drink over a long period of time

Research shows that attempting to avoid certain foods usually makes people more vulnerable to binge.  Yes, the intentional decision to not eat sweets, ice cream, baked goods was made.

However, now you find yourself eating more of everything else: meat, veggies, crackers, fruit, rice, nuts PLUS the sweets you’re not eating have been replaced with chips, coffee loaded with cream, protein bars, smoothies, wine, eating out more

What to do instead…

Healthy eating can and should include your favorite foods you choose simply for enjoyment rather (I call it fun food) than nutrition.  Sometimes it is better to have a bit of whatever it is you are craving than try and find a substitute.


When we attempt to eliminate favorite foods for the sake of eating healthier we tend to either restrict calories too much or overindulge in others foods

This vicious cycle led to the creation of this special 3-day (Free) challenge called “Crush your Sugar Cravings:  A 3-Day Clean Eating No Added-Sugar Challenge
