Six Years of Sugar Freedom

The Sugar Freedom e-book was released six years ago, and I’m so grateful to the thousands of readers who have quit sugar and improved their heath by replacing sugary, starchy, processed foods with simple foods that can be found in the meat and dairy aisle, and at the farmer’s market.

I gave up sugar back in 2008, and by keeping it out of my food plan I have been able to maintain a healthy weight and a happy mood for almost 14 years now.

After menopause, I spent a year on the Carnivore Diet and my health improved even more. The most important benefits of this animal based approach to eating have been blood sugar control, motivation, enthusiasm for life. Some of the unusual effects have been shrinking and disappearance of moles, thicker hair, stronger fingernails, and healthier gums.

The biggest surprise was that problems with moles and nails come right back when I try to re-introduce too many plants to my diet, even in the form of green vegetables and low sugar fruits.

As 2022 begins, I will be focusing on reaping the benefits of better insulin sensitivity with a sensible weight lifting and interval training program, and by continuing to eat for myself. I invite you to do the same.

I will be sharing the training I use to maintain my 75 pound weight loss, good health, and good mood here and on my YouTube channel.

Here is a link to my most popular video on quitting sugar:

Summer: Make It Your Sugar Free Season.

For years now, I have called the 5th of July Sugar Freedom Day. There is something about Summer in the USA that makes it easier to replace sugar, grains, seed oils, and the cheap junk foods that are made from them with the un-processed foods that are available locally.

In our county, the farmer’s markets are open, and locally raised meat and eggs are plentiful. All of the ingredients of the Sugar Freedom food plan can be found in the outer aisles of your local grocery store as well.

In the garden, we’ve planted tomatoes, zucchini, radishes, carrots, and herbs, plus the blackberries will be ripe in a week or two. Once the appetite increasing, craving causing processed foods have been crossed off of your menu, natural local foods will taste simply wonderful, and they will satisfy your hunger without leaving you craving second helpings or a late night snack. Many of the videos I have posted at: YouTube.com/c/sugarfreedom reveal the science behind sugar cravings, addiction, and overeating. When you cut out sugar, grains, and seed oils inflammation heals, hunger hormones like leptin,ghrelin, and cortisol get back into balance, and eating a healthy diet becomes simple and natural.

An omelet made with local eggs at breakfast, a fresh tossed salad with roasted chicken at lunch, and a rib-eye steak with broccoli for dinner Is so satisfying that the sweet, starchy foods I used to crave are simply forgotten. With Sugar Freedom, my readers and I have been able to not only change what we eat, we have been able to change what we want to eat. That has made all the difference.
