    Sugar Freedom Challenge: 2 Weeks to Go

    in Weight Loss

    As we come into the last 2 weeks of the Sugar Freedom 6 Week Challenge, it's time to hear about Catherine's top fat releasing tips.  Drink your tonic, get in 8 glasses of water, satisfy and quiet your appetite in order to get the results you deserve.  Catherine reveals her book of the week: Keto Clarity by Jimmy Moore with Eric C. Westman, MD.


    Weekly Recipe: Beef Taco Filling.  I use this to fill Red Cabbage leaves.  Simply serve with taco shells for your family members and guests who don't need to go Keto.


    1lb grass fed ground beef, 1 yellow onion, chopped, 4 cloves garlic, minced, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar sheese, 1 jar organic salsa.  In a large skillet combine onion and ground beef and cook until beef is no longer pink.  Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Drain fat and put in your slow cooker. Add cheese, salsa, cumin, and salt.  Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or on low for for 5 hours.  Add tomatoes and shreeded lettuce if desired, and wrap in cabbage leaves to serve.

    The Sugar Show: Sugar and Our Sprouts with Ben Briggs

    in Family

    Ben Briggs joins Shirley on the continuation of The Sugar Show  episodes to talk about sugar and its relationship and affect on children. The idea of sugar in children is particularly complex because sugar offeres some energy but not a lot else by way of nutrients and minerals essential for healthy growth and development for our little sprouts. If excessively consummed, the energy is not burned in the body and stored as fat. 


    Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. Understanding the habits we form early on and our relationship with food, can better frame our youth's caloric imbalances- taking in lots of calories and expending few calories- and genetic, behavioral and environmental factors affected.

    The Book That Made Sugar Freedom Possible.

    in Weight Loss

    Let's face it. The low carb/high fat approach is still not politically correct.  Eliminating added sugar is getting lots of support in the media these days from films like Fed Up, and books like Fat Chance by Dr. Robert Lustig.


    The truth is, I didn't just eliminate sugar in order to lose more than 65 pounds, and keep it off (with a 6 month period of re-gain which I will describe on today's show) for six years and counting.  I also completely eliminated grains, I ate more fat, and most shocking of all, I occaisionally practiced intermittent fasting.  I was truly afraid to tell anyone how I had lost all my weight, let alone write publicly about it.


    Then, I saw Dr. David Perlmutter on the Dr. Oz Show.  He was talking about his book, Grain Brain.  I bought the book, read it, and followed Dr. Perlmutter's dietary approach in order to get back to my happy weight.  The most important conviction I gained from Grain Brain was that I never ever had to eat grains again.  Finally, I had the courage to write my story, and share my own approach to sugar and grain free living.  If you've decided to let grains go for good, I hope you'll listen today, and read Grain Brain, by Dr. David Perlmutter
