Is sugar your favorite food but also your worst enemy? Is your refrigerator is full, but you never are? Is fast food slowing you down? Are your taste-buds begging for a reset that will help your waistline? Are you stuck in a perpetual cycle of waking up tired, powering through the day with caffeine and sugary treats to stay awake and then sleeping poorly?

RESTART® is a proven program to address all that and more. It is used nationally by other certified holistic nutritional therapists. This is a 5-week class with a 3-week sugar detox built in.

  • You will be fully supported one-on-one by me and by and your classmates.
  • You will have a once-a-week class and check-ins with lots of tips, resources, recipes
  • Everything is explained for you. All your questions will be answered.
  • No judgments.

Living in America and eating as most of us do makes it darn near impossible to reach our weight and health goals. Why? A lot of what we eat is nutrition-lite; it has been manufactured for convenience and long shelf-life, not for nourishment and health.

And as Dr. David Kessler, a Harvard educated MD and former head of the FDA, tells us, a lot of what we eat is also downright addictive. Processed foods contain precise levels of fat / sugar / salt – highly stimulating tastes – that that leave us always wanting more. Food companies scientifically experiment with taste, texture, color, smell, appearance, and above all, the empty calories of sugar “to come as close as possible to eating’s ‘bliss point,’ where the brain’s reward system is captured by this immensely complex, artificially designed food that is as powerful as a drug.”

Sugar is everywhere and it is addictive. Sugar and other sweeteners light up the same chemical pathways as addicting drugs like heroin and cocaine. Some say sugar is 8 times more addicting than cocaine or heroin. Think you fell victim to its clutches? It is not your fault – it is by industry design! About 200 years ago, the average person ate 10 pounds of sugar per year. Today it’s more like 120-180 pounds. We simply were not designed to handle this avalanche of sugar. It is a huge stress on the body that can trigger a cascade of health issues including heart disease, allergies, arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cancer, etc. Eliminating the stressors and strengthening the defenses are the rewards of this program.

Yet you can get over the sugar habit. You can learn to eat real foods. We work together for 5 weeks in a group – it’s so much easier together. We are guided by each other’s support and my expertise.

Changing your relationship with food is much more successful if you have someone to keep you accountable and to help you through the struggles that may come up. RESTART® is a proven program that will provide the education and support system to get you through the five weeks and come out of it with a strong foundation for the future.

This is a big bite of the apple. As we change our relationship with food during these 5 weeks, we’ll look at:

  • Digestion – How it should work, and what happens when it goes wrong.
  • Blood sugar regulation – How it should work, how it goes wrong when we eat too many sugars and starchy carbs, and what we can do to change it.
  • Fats – The good, the bad, and the misunderstood. When more sugar was added to the diet, it replaced fats. Learn how the right fats are actually good for you and support your body in making healthy tissues and how they help control inflammation.

What participants have said about the RESTART® program:

“I came into this class just wanting to learn how sugar affects the body. I honestly thought I ate healthy. Little did I know that just because it’s dairy and gluten free, doesn’t mean it’s healthy. I came into this class with horrible gas and bloating … I left the class feeling better and with a ton of knowledge. It’s a lifestyle change I will stick with. Do this class, you won’t regret it.”

“I thought I ate healthy until I took the RESTART class. Our modern diseases have become so acceptable and no one questions why we live in this state. The RESTART class gives you the tools to lose weight, increase energy, and best of all the common sense of how we should be living and eating. Thank you for making me see the world differently and giving me the power and knowledge to make a difference in my life and my family.”

“If you do nothing else for your health, do this. If you want to feel better, more alive, more happy, more purposeful – allow your body the space and time it needs to heal you from the inside out. Discover how good you can feel when you give your body a break from one of our most prevalent toxins – sugar! This is the way to living your best life.”

“I never thought I could do this, but with all the information and support, it went by really fast and I feel great! You have changed my life and I thank you for that!”

“Since I did this I’m off of two medications; one for asthma and the other for acid reflux. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this!”

8 Biggest Dietary Mistakes
Where we often go wrong with fats, sugar, grains, addictive foods, salt, counting calories, exercise, and supplements.

Weight Loss
If it were really as simple as eating less and exercising more, we would not have twin epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Let’s get down to the truth of the matter and find out what works.

What’s the Fuss About Gluten & GMOs?
Is gluten-free just a fad, or is there more to it? What do we know about genetically modified foods?

What is Meant By a Nutrient-dense Diet?
Why our ancestors ate “tip to tail,” why Weston A. Price was called the “Charles Darwin of nutrition,” what is the French paradox and the paleo diet, and could butter and cholesterol and eggs actually be “rock stars” of nutrition?

The Power of Food
There’s genetics, and then there’s epigenetics. Each mouthful of food sends messages to our genes that can turn them on or off. What foods talk to our genes?

My Digestion (Burp)
Antacids or that purple pill your best friend? Bloating? Gas? Don’t feel good when you eat? Diarrhea or constipation? Let’s talk stomach acid, zinc, and other things that so often get out of whack these days.

What’s for Dinner – I’m On a Budget!
Why do we pay less for our food than any other country in the world, yet we have about the highest health care costs? What are we paying for? When is organic worth it? What are good/better/best options?

3 Big Ones: Cancer / Heart Disease / Alzheimer’s
Why is the information so conflicting? Research tells us these diseases are largely environmentally caused and thus preventable. Food plays a big role here. Find out what that is.

Bones & Broth
Let’s talk bones, osteoporosis, broken hips, cartilage, and joints. Find out why calcium supplements are NOT the answer to strong bones and why many are calling old-fashioned, homemade bone broth the anti-aging secret for good skin and bones.

Living in a Toxic Brew?
You are cleaning up your diet, terrific! Now let’s look at what’s in the shampoo, toothpaste, shaving cream… all those bathroom lotions and potions. And while we are at it, what’s under the kitchen sink and in the laundry room? Consumer beware: Carcinogenic ingredients and “obesogens” are commonplace and often unregulated.

If you didn’t see the subject matter above you are looking for, call me and we’ll customize it for you.

Feedback from Group Presentations:

“No one ever took time to explain all this to me before. I’ve waited a long time to get these answers. Very worthwhile”

“It was 3 hours and it could have been twice as long. It was really, really interesting. I learned a lot.”

“I didn’t understand until now how my prescription meds could be giving me brittle bones instead of strong bones.”

“I understand so much more now about what I see in people all around me like cancer and heart disease and Alzheimer’s . . . I don’t think anymore that these diseases have to be my destiny.”
