Sugar Primer

Online course on how and why to moderate sugar


It's not about quitting sugar...


It’s not about quitting sugar, alcohol, social events or fun. It’s about finding balance.

You may or may not feel addicted to sugar but perhaps you’ve been jumping from diet to diet, trying to find the magic cure.  

You have been focusing on weight and manipulating the number of calories without regard to the quality.  

You’ve listened to “experts” without listening to your own body and the results have been weight loss, regain, distrusting and disliking your body, lack of self-control, oppressive guilt, self-judgment, emotional overeating, overeating as an effect of under-eating, social isolation, shame, confusion.  

Get off the rollercoaster and jump on the joy ride of balanced blood sugar for balanced energy.  

Choose real foods that quell cravings and help you lose weight - without restricting or selling your soul to the diet industry.

My sugar story



Stephanie Nelson - Co-Creator and Former Sugar Addict

Two amazing things are happening to me as I committed myself once again to moderating sugar on January 1st.

  1. Joint pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis is nearly gone. Since the age of 15, I have fought moments (sometimes weeks) of knee pain, hip pain, etc.  Pain that really affected my life. That inflammation and joint pain are no longer a recurring issue.  I can't even begin to explain to you how monumental this is.
  2. I haven't had time since the new year to make it to the gym as often as I would want (not pleased by this). I used to work out 5 days a week and then reward myself with Swedish Fish after a workout. Now, working out 1-2 days a week and living more sugar aware, my body looks completely different (better) than it did when I was working out 5 days a week.  Time saver!

For me, these are huge "gains"! Yes, I am a recovering Sugar Addict. But now, sugar doesn't even taste that good to me. Talk about a gain!

So, if you are pondering if this course is right for you, let me encourage you: You can do this! Our approach is gentle and actionable.  What do YOU have to gain?

Would you like to talk about joint pain or any fears you have in making a gentle change to moderate sugar? Contact us anytime! We're here to support you!

We would be honored if you shared this with someone you know that is looking for gains like these.  

My best to you,
