Sugar is an addictive substance that wreaks more havoc on your metabolism, your energy, your mood, and your weight than you ever thought. It's sneaky - It's everywhere (and not just in candy and cupcakes!)
At one point in my life a few years back I realized I had been tweaking my diet in search of feeling good and losing fat for over 14 years. Growing up, my family tried to eat healthy, but we were influenced by the guidelines of the 'low-fat' generation... with no limit on sugar. I can remember eating a bag of Famous Amos cookies for lunch in high school, then scooping spoonfuls of pure white sugar over my already sweet cereal as an after-school snack. In college I studied Exercise Science & Physiology, but continued to struggle with weight by trying to out-exercise my diet. Even in the first years I began personal training and teaching yoga, I managed to stay 'in shape,' but still felt there was something missing... So many of us are on the constant search for the next juice cleanse, the latest cure-all superfood, the "perfect" workout to get us to where we want to be.
I knew there was a better way to eat than counting every calorie and trying to sweat off my misguided food choices.
Over the last 5 years I’ve studied nutrition extensively, and the effects of excess sugar on the body specifically. I've implemented the resulting real-food diet as a way of life, for myself, and hundreds of happy clients. I believe that truly understanding real nutrition (not just checking the box on another diet) is key, and what most of us have been missing in our search for health.
I created Sugar Detox as a way to introduce you to how good your body is truly designed to feel. I will guide you to find YOUR PERFECT NUTRITION plan! It's so hard to sift through all the misinformation out there and sometimes we need group support and a coach! I'm here to help you create not just your best body, but a radiant, healthy lifestyle!

F R E Q U E N T L Y A S K E D Q U E S T I O N S
Can't I just take sugar out of my diet on my own?
You certainly can try! It's a very challenging endeavor; with all of the packaged foods and hidden sugars out there, sugar exists in many forms and in foods you would never believe! I can help you navigate this aspect of sugar removal, as well as personalize a diet that will work for you long-term, based on your habits, likes and dislikes. I'll also provide you with plenty of information that will help you understand the process your body goes through when we eat sugar, fat, carbohydrates, and teach you how to properly fuel yourself to be in a consistent FAT BURN mode. Many participants report that the Facebook group support is an important contributor to their success; you'll have a safe & private space to post, get feedback, ask questions, and vent! And I'll be right there in the group to coach, comment and answer questions for you!
I don't live in San Diego, can I still participate in Sugar Detox or enlist you for nutrition coaching?
YES! All of the materials in Sugar Detox are available online and through emails, and you can participate from anywhere in the world! This goes for my coaching programs as well; we will Skype or check in via phone, and I will send you lots of homework and all the details of your program via email!
I REALLY love sugar, and might be pretty addicted, can I complete the Sugar Detox?
YES – but I won't lie, it will be a challenge! Even if you think you have already eliminated excess sugar from your diet, unless you avoid ALL packaged foods I bet you are consuming more sugar than you think! It's worth it. But it will take dedication!
Does Sugar Detox support Vegetarian/Pescatarian diets?
YES. Sugar Detox is founded in traditional, ancestral diets, with a focus on locally/ethically sourced animal protein. But as a vegetarian for 9 years, I completely respect it as an ethical dietary choice. I'll work with you individually to create a plan that works for you.
Will I lose weight on Sugar Detox?
Body weight tends to regulate once you're feeding it optimal nutrition. While it's highly likely that if you have excess body fat, you will lose some on this detox, I do not recommend you make it your main focus. We are not taking measurements, before/after pics, or weight; no counting calories! How you FEEL and your energy levels will be a much better gauge of success during the detox. And your continual reduction of excess body fat from the changes you make to your eating habits over time will be the bonus!!
Is Sugar Detox safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding?
It's perfectly safe, and highly recommended! Sugar Detox uses only whole, REAL food nutrition, is customizable, and does not require you use any supplements. What a perfect time to make sure you are consuming only the most nutrient dense, health-promoting foods possible - when you are supporting another life!
Space is limited!
