Stop Crying Yourself to Sleep After Another Sugar Binge…
Kill the Shameful Craving Keeping You Tired, Hungry and Embarrassingly Fat
Get Ready to Experience Lifelong Relief From a Simple 3-Step Solution That Will End Decades of Painful Binge-Eating, And Finally Give You Control Of The Mood Swings, The Weight Gain, and The Addiction That Sugar Has Over You!
Let me ask you something…
Would you steal to feed your addiction?
Like you, I never knew when the overwhelming cravings would start. I tried to distract myself, but I couldn’t.
I could be anywhere, at any moment, doing anything – and then WHAM! The urge would hit me. Getting a fix was the only thing I could think about.
If that helplessness sounds familiar, don’t worry. It’s not your fault, and I’m going to show you EXACTLY how to kill this shameful craving for good.
But back when I struggled with sugar addiction, It wouldn’t matter if I was happy, sad, stressed, tired, or even just feeling ‘normal’…the binges would strike at any moment.
And worse, they often seemed to hit me just when I was oh-so-close to reaching my weight loss goal.
Then the inner demons would take over… the food cravings would dominate my every thought.
“Where can I get something sweet and chewy?”
“Are there donuts hidden in the cupboard?”
“Did my roommate’s Mom send her some cookies that I can steal?”
Frantically, I would rifle through my college roommate’s cupboards as if I had a search warrant…
“I’ll just ‘borrow’ a slice of Maria’s bread,” I’d say. “I’ll have a spoonful of Louise’s peanut butter.” I’d even think, “Colin won’t miss just ONE Rice Krispie treat.” These destructive thoughts would take my brain prisoner.
Sometimes, it would just start as innocently as eating a ripe banana. But seconds later, after taking the first bite, this demonic presence would take control of me, and I would enter an unstoppable feeding frenzy.
One Binge Can Quickly Lead to A Lifelong Addiction
I would inhale the banana, and move on to cereal. Handful by handful I’d feed my addiction. But it wasn’t enough. I knew there was chocolate. There had to be chocolate. I’d turn the house upside down looking for just a square of chocolate. Thirty minutes, even sixty minutes would pass.
Full to the point of feeling sick, I’d finally come to, ashamed of what I had done. But there was no going back. It was over, and I’d quickly destroy any shred of evidence. Even the CSI team wouldn’t be able to know what I had done.
But I knew. It caused me decades of embarrassment and social isolation.
I can only hope you’ve never experienced anything like this…but if you have…you can relate. You know the powerlessness of the being in “binge mode.” You know the post-binge shame. You know the highs and utter despair found in the lows of sugar addiction.
How can I describe the devastating power of that first bite to someone that has never experienced it?
To be blunt, and please, pardon the drama, but it was like heaven and hell at the same time.
One small bite of a glazed donut, and my taste buds would demand more as my heart would be sinking at the same time. And every single time, I would tell myself, “Oh no Catherine, you’re doing it again. Stop, just please stop,” my rational mind would cry out.
But it was no match for the demons, the addiction, the powerful forces behind the binge. Nothing could beat them – or so I thought, until I discovered one powerful secret solution…
At the time though, I did everything I could to avoid detection.
It’s bad enough to be caught in the middle of yet another binge by your sugar addiction, but it’s even worse when someone catches you taking THEIR food, even AFTER they specifically warned you again and again.
To this very day, the expression on my friend and roommate Beth’s face as she asked me to stop eating her cereal when she was out of the apartment haunts me. She looked puzzled, and so disappointed in me. I was supposed to be her friend, yet I was stealing her food to feed my addiction.
It was so devastatingly embarrassing.
I was a grown woman, for crying out loud. I was auditioning to be a Hollywood actress. I was independent, on the verge of success, and yet I couldn’t even control myself around children’s breakfast snacks.
That afternoon confrontation with Beth might have been the lowest point of my adult life.
But every binge brought on a terrible aftermath.
Shame was a terrible consequence of my sugar addiction, and the morning after was worse. My throbbing head, bulging belly, and puffy face were obvious symptoms of my sugar hangover.
I was always depressed after those episodes (that were repeated over and over), and it wasn’t just because I was disappointed in myself.
The depression was also a physical reaction to food that was like a poison to me.
If you’ve never felt the compulsion to keep eating long after a food stops tasting good, you probably won’t understand my helplessness.
If you can stop eating after 2 Oreos or one potato chip, you might think I’m just some silly drama queen looking for attention, and making excuses for being fat.
That’s fine, I understand that some people have superhuman willpower. I don’t. I’m just a normal woman that loves food…but parts of my brain love certain foods just a little too much.
I’ve cried over that a lot. Actually, I’m crying right now. So I will look for understanding from the women and men who have felt what I feel whenever I eat the sugar, flour, and fake fat combination that is my drug, my poison, my kryptonite.
Why did I steal and eat those foods? The momentary rush they gave me was so overwhelming, so powerful, that I was willing to give up my dignity for it.
So how did I finally break this miserable addiction that kept me from having the body, the energy, and the self respect I needed to create the life of my dreams?
I found a way to eat something else.
And I’ll get to that, but first, let’s face the facts…
70% of Americans are overweight.
35% are considered obese.
But I’m not shocked, nor will you be when you learn just how pervasive this highly toxic and addictive ingredient is in North American food today.
You see, it’s everywhere…
Get in your car to go to work or take the kids to school, and you can’t avoid it. There are fast food joints on every corner, ice cream and yogurt shops in every strip mall, candy and snack stores at every gas station, there are even candy and chip racks at the hardware store!
Go to the grocery store, where you expect to find nutritious, satisfying food to make at home, and this food is hidden in places you would never expect.
It’s in salad dressings, condiments like mayonnaise, whole grain bread and cereals. Even in a healthy snack like yogurt there can be as many as 5 teaspoons of this addictive substance that acts just like a drug in in the pleasure centers of the brain.
Once you start eating it, it triggers the release of the fat storing hormone insulin, while it blocks the brain’s ability to recognize signals from leptin, the hormone that tells you when you’re full.
You would stop eating it if you could, but there’s just one problem.
It’s so over-stimulating to your hunger and appetite, that it’s the only food you crave!
to Eat is the Food That’s Keeping You Fat
Before we get to that, I want to tell you why it’s my mission and my passion to bring you a solution to the pain of being overweight.
My name is Catherine Gordon, and I will never forget the day I was put on my first diet by my pediatrician.
I was eight years old and I remember him vividly, because he was very handsome, and he had these really great, big, brown eyes.
I was horribly embarrassed as I sat there on the examining table, at eight years old, in my rolls of fat.
The Doctor looked me in the eye and he said, “So, Cathy, how would you like to count calories?” And I said, “Okay!”
Like I thought counting calories was going to be the most fun thing in the world.
The doctor didn’t even send me home with a food plan or a diet. He just sent me home with the idea that I was more than 20% overweight for my age and height, and that I needed to count calories.
and I was hungry for the next 35 years.
Now you may think I’m exaggerating a little bit, and yes there were times when I wasn’t hungry, but it seemed like the only time I wasn’t hungry was for a few hours right after a binge.
At that point, I was miserable… and ashamed.
So, for the next 35 years I cut calories, I watched what I ate, and I did my best to eat low fat.
I tried every diet that came along, and sometimes I would succeed for a little while. I could be “good” for three days in a row, then I would just freak out and eat everything in sight.
I’m sure you’ve been there, and that you know how much it hurts to fail at fat loss.
So I am going to reveal to you an approach to permanent weight loss that is so simple, you may even have a hard time believing it. After all, I know what that’s like.
The truth is that staying on a diet is nearly impossible in a world where billions of dollars are being made every year on the foods that make and keep us fat. I did everything I could to limit how much I ate so that I could get over being fat and get on with really living, and then, finally, as middle aged Mom, everything changed.
Back in 2008, I was telling everyone about the great new exercise plan that was transforming my body, but I kept the most important fat loss secret to myself:
I started eating in a completely new and different way.
I didn’t tell anybody how I was eating. I kept how I was eating to myself. In many ways I felt like a fake.
I was getting support from friends and family, but I wasn’t telling them the truth.
Why? Because the truth about what I was eating was the absolute opposite of what all of the experts, diet programs, and weight loss gurus had been saying since I started my first diet in 1972!
I think it’s time… no, I know that it’s time, to share the truth with you about what I really did to finally lose fat for good.
I remember I how desperate I was to lose weight in in high school. I wanted to be popular, and get asked to dances, but I was the chubby girl with the good sense of humor. Not the girl you ask on dates. So I started cutting calories really hard.
I did everything I could think of to eat fewer calories: low fat, one salad a day, even eating nothing but fruit. It simply didn’t work, and I knew that I had to find a better way.
Later, when I was in college, I tried a commercial diet that cut my calories to 950 a day, and that required daily weigh-ins.
I remember feeling weak, and unable to concentrate.
Hello hunger- and binges that would hit just about every ten days when I couldn’t take my crazy-strict diets any more.
After that I headed off to Hollywood to break into the acting business, but my weight got in the way.
If I was really strict with my eating- and my new weight loss tools were diet pills, smoking, and caffeine, I could force my weight down for a few weeks at a time.
I had success on the stage, and I could get work in commercials, but I absolutely had to starve myself to get thin enough to work on camera.
I wanted to be thin so badly, and I was so determined to succeed at finally getting to my goal weight.
Still, no matter what I tried, I would always end up binging or over-eating.
I tried other diet plans – the big commercial programs where they sell you nearly all of the pre-packaged the food you are supposed to eat, but the problem was this: I would buy a box of their special low-calorie breakfast bars…
…but because of this ONE addictive ingredient, I would eat the whole box before I even got home from my weekly weigh-in!
It was crazy. I thought I was nuts. I thought there was something really, really, seriously wrong with me.
I kept putting on weight… year after year. At my top non-pregnancy weight , I weighed 185 pounds at 5’1’ tall. Yes, clinically obese at a BMI of 35.
After 35 years of cutting fat and counting calories, I had literally dieted my way to obesity.
But then, it struck me… almost like a bolt of lightning. What if I did the exact opposite of what the “experts” had been telling me to do?
What if I didn’t use the breakfast bars or the boxed meals? I asked myself…
For 12 weeks, I used this approach. I didn’t use any magic pills or consume any boxed dinners.
I simply eliminated this ONE ingredient and here’s what happened…
I got down to my normal BMI and went from 155 to 117 pounds.
It was my dream weight, which just weeks before, was only achievable in my imagination.
But could I keep it off?
Well it’s been more than five years since the contest. I’ve not only kept it off, but my physical transformation led to an emotional transformation as well.
My mindset changed… and yours will, too. It’s much simpler than you think, too.
Please understand, some of my most powerful eating strategies aren’t exactly politically correct, but I know it’s time to share what finally helped me get the body I always wanted- for keeps.
It’s also time for you to stop caring about being “politically correct” and destroy cravings for this one ingredient that’s hidden in protein bars, shakes and even so-called “healthy meals”.
This one ingredient IS addictive. I was a victim of it for years, and my clients have been enslaved by it as well…
… until they unlocked the key that allowed them to break free from the bondage of this toxin that makes you sleepy, encourages fat storage and destroys your fat-burning hormones.
This is exactly why 35% of Americans are obese and almost 70% are overweight.
The experts tell us it is all about making better choices.
All we have to do is take personal responsibility and our battle against belly fat would be over.
They also tell us that the key to our success is “moderation,” as well as being told to exercise more and more every day.
It’s these ideas that are holding us hostage, and keeping us from achieving the simple goal of losing fat!
Sugar, the ONE ingredient, that when removed, will put your body into optimal fat-burning mode (and unlocks your full potential to burn fat) is hidden in your kitchen as you’re reading this.
So even if you’ve been on a “sugar-free” diet, you’re still consuming this addictive toxin, and it doesn’t stop there.
It’s pretty simple to cut sugary sodas and candy bars out of your eating plan, but what about the foods that break down into sugar as soon as you eat them?
Yes, the bagels, muffins, cereals, and pastas that the USDA claims should be the foundation of our diet turn right into sugar in the bloodstream.
In fact, new research shows that industrial food full of processed sugars, fats, salt, and chemicals are powerfully addictive. And sugar is the worst culprit.
It’s these foods that drive our desire to eat more of it.
Your Body from This Addiction
But how do we stop eating it?
To put it as simply as I can, when my students at my fitness studio ask, “How do I get off of sugar?” I answer, “Eat something else.”
What is that “Something else?” It’s real, unprocessed food that will satisfy your hunger, end your cravings, and allow you to stop obsessing over fat-storing foods.
Obviously, eating real food will “reset” your cravings, as well as your hormones to optimize fat burning. .
However, if it was just a matter of turning on a switch and choosing these foods, wouldn’t everyone be doing it?
And how would you know you’re eating foods without these hidden sugars?
After 35 years of addiction, I’ve finally got that figured out… and I shared this simple information with my clients at Gordon Studio, too…
It’s now time to tell you what will finally BREAK you from this addiction. I’ve named it exactly for what it is…
So with this simple approach, you’re finally going to break free from addictive foods, and discover a NEW freedom you’ve never experienced.
On the Sugar Freedom Diet, yes, you’re going to give up sugar and the foods that break down quickly to sugar, and you’re going to lose your cravings once and for all.
I’ll lay out every single step to do this in a progressive manner, so you’ll never fall back into your old habits.
It really is simple when you know how to shop for and prepare the fat burning foods that will satisfy your hunger at last. I’ll also show you what to order at restaurants, and even what you can eat when you’re on the road for business or on vacation in order to keep losing fat.
100% of my clients that followed this, step-by-step, succeeded.
So here’s what you get with the Sugar Freedom D.
