A Sustainable Approach to Ending Sugar Addiction

You’ve been hearing about the benefits of the paleo, low-carb, and ketogenic diets but thinking about giving up your nightly glass of wine and piece of dark chocolate depresses you. 

You can imagine a life free of sugar cravings, energy dips, belly fat and chronic pain.  A life in which you confidently purchase and prepare vibrant, real foods.  But could this be possible without quitting sugar and carbs cold turkey? 

Is there a way to dip your toe into the low carb/sugar waters before you dive in?  

The SugarWise Approach to Carb and Sugar Addiction and

A Personal Sugar Story

Sugar was banned in my house growing up.  Once I gained access to it, I binged on it, struggled with weight management, had fertility issues and later gestational diabetes.  I was on and off sugar and it was a roller coaster for my mind and body. 

Little by little, I learned to give myself permission to eat sugar and carbs mindfully. By listening to my body, I realized that it didn’t feel as good or taste as good as I thought.  Now, I still eat sugar, but infrequently.  It doesn’t satisfy or control me like it used to. I have naturally eased into a low carb, low sugar lifestyle.  

Changing Your Mindset

In my years as a dietitian nutritionist I have noted the positive dietary changes that have taken hold with my clients, and carefully considered how and why they were lasting.  With these observations and my own personal experience, I developed SugarWise. SugarWise is a nutrition course that aims to change the mindset from that of victim and failure to competent and confident eating by teaching food skills (planning, shopping, prepping) AND food psychology (emotions, social eating, mindful eating).
