Did you know that there are over 60 names for sugar?!?!?
Sugar is hiding everywhere - pasta sauce, breads, muffins, yogurt, green juice...even the "healthy" breakfast bars, cereals and Paleo treats you might be eating in excess just trying to be healthy!
Don't feel bad...I was once fooled too before I became more aware and educated. Now I know what to look for and how sugar works in the body and that's why I am passionate about teaching others.
As a Certified 21-Day Sugar Detox Coach you might assume that I want you to give up all sugar forever or that I never eat sugar...well that's not true! While we can all benefit from a sugar detox (more on that below), a healthy diet is one that is sustainable well beyond a targeted nutrition challenge.
If you've been through my 21-Day Sugar Detox Program, you'll know more about the healthy, natural sugars that I recommend are best to consume in moderation. If you haven't been through my 21-Day Sugar Detox Program, or worked with me as a 1:1 client in a Custom Health Coaching Program, then you might still not fully understand the difference between the types of sugars or really why we want to minimize sugars, and foods that easily convert to sugar (glucose) in the body.
I've become such an expert on this topic, my fellow health coach friend asked to interview me on her podcast where we talk about what healthy sugars we recommend.

PALEO SUGARS 101 PODCAST
In my “Sugar is a Sneaky Thing” workshop, I go in-depth about the science of sugar, but you might be overwhelmed with where to begin, or how to implement this in real life. Or maybe you've been through a sugar detox before, but have gotten a little too lenient with your diet, and could use a refresh.
If you're like most of us, and could benefit from additional motivation and support for a fresh start, join me for the MyHealthyTransitions 21-Day Sugar Detox Health Coaching Program in September! I'm offering both in-person and virtual options for this session, so you can participate no matter where you are.
P.S. If you're still on the fence, don't ever let fear of failure or the idea of perfection get in your way from making small changes and progress towards feeling your best. Perfection doesn't exist and that's not what the sugar detox is about, so there's nothing to lose and only much to gain I pinky promise. ;)
