Addiction is a big word. It is a word that goes un discussed far too often, and it is does because of the pain it brings, which might just be the reason it should be discussed more often. In the world of addiction, and addiction treatment, some schools of thought would say that there are those with “Addictive Personalities”. Which I used to believe was the case.
Now, I tend to side with the school of thought that we all have addictive personalities, but our chemical, physical, spiritual and emotional terrain is what has the greatest determination on whether we are likely to be addicted to one thing or another. We all have addictive tendencies, it simply comes down to what it is that we are likely to be addicted to, and how we are prepared to respond to it.
In my years of practice and consultation with patients. I have worked through the chemical and emotional components of addiction to alcohol, drugs, and perhaps the most potent of all… sugar. It is such a strong addiction. In the 60 Day Turnaround, we directly address this addiction, and our primary goal is to kill it. To get you to a place where it does not control your diet. The TED Talk seen here, is such a great story of addiction. It is the WHY behind addiction.

The simple fact is that there is no pathway out of your addiction to sugar. Wait, hold on, lets re-phrase that, your addiction to BLOOD SUGAR. I don’t want any of you non sweet eating, bread addicted individuals to have any thought that you don’t have addition to sugar. So back to the point, there is no pathway out of your addiction to sugar without you completely stopping the use of sugar… or things that readily turn to sugar.
This is a pathway to freedom. A pathway to not wanting to eat sugars and breads, and other carbs and simply focusing on those that provide blood sugar. This opens the door to improved insulin responsiveness, to better fat burning capacity, to a life where you can dictate your hormone responsiveness.
The 60 Day Turnaround begins on September 26th. This is the first Monday night, of 60 days of Monday nights, where you will begin to take control of your life.
See you on Monday night, the 26th at 7pm. Just let the office know so we can reserve your spot.
