In today’s episode, I will share so of my struggles with sugar, my addiction, and how the process itself helped me boost self-compassion. As I started to reflect on what I was going to share about my struggles with sugar and emotional problems it came along, I noticed that there is quite a bit to unpack so you get to understand why becoming an insulin resistance coach and nutritional endocrinology practitioner have been key to me. So, stay tuned!
The reason I am sharing details is that this may resonate with you or someone in your life. Overcoming my sugar addiction, which was tagged to an eating disorder and other problems, was one of the hardest things I’ve accomplished. Doing this alone was awful and I don’t recommend it.
Why, I did it on my own –at least for the most part of it? I didn’t feel confident that the environment and people I spent most of my time with would be able to offer the support and help I needed. I wanted to get to the bottom of it. That’s the call I made at the time. So, I went off to do it myself and for me. So, I embraced research, learning, and application, and eventually teaching—as a coach.
I am passionate about empowering stressed-out, sugar and carb lovers, a.k.a. addicts, to rediscover vitality, happiness, and lead a fulfilling life.
