I was hooked on sugar from a very early age. Cakes, chocolate and puddings were all a big part of my childhood and fed my emotional hunger too.
But all that sugar came with a HUGE cost. I was diagnosed with migraines from the age of six! I always felt overweight. In my teens I began to hate the way I felt and looked, I had zero self-confidence and sugar really did become the main focus in my life at that time. It was all-consuming.
I was constantly trying new diets. I always felt that if I could only lose a few pounds THEN I’d be happier. I was always counting calories and when I did try to cut back on sugar, I just CRAVED it all the more. I really didn’t feel I could be happy unless I’d had my sugar fix. I knew it was bad for me, but I self sabotaged anyway.
Ultimately the cost of sugar became too great, and working as a nurse in palliative care, I knew that if I didn’t get a handle on this sugar addiction, I was possibly headed for much the same fate as many of my patients.
When I started to research, I began to realise just how addictive sugar was. For years I had beaten myself up, disgusted at how weak-willed I’d been, when actually I was discovering how it really wasn’t my fault, and I wasn’t alone in this.
I learned how sugar messes with our hormones and keeps us trapped in a powerful cycle of addiction, and how over time it will make us sick.
One day, I finally hit rock bottom following a particularly bad migraine attack. That day I finally decided that I wasn’t going to put my health at risk any further, and I was going to quit sugar for good!
I learned that freedom from sugar lay in going back to basics, cooking all my own food from scratch, introducing healthy fats and keeping blood sugars balanced.
I fell in LOVE with eating delicious and nourishing food!
I loved how I began to feel!
