For those that know me I am an ice cream addict – I am also an ice cream snob – I love the indie brands of ice cream and living next to Brooklyn Fare was a blessing because they have the most amazing ice cream selection but it was also bad for the tummy line, for my skin, for my energy level – for everything !

I have given up sugar for about a month in the past and have decided I must do it again.  I am not terrible where I am eating a pint of ice cream but even 2 small scoops a night here and there adds up.  I was sent SUGAR KNOCKOUT by Cherie Calbom and it came at the perfect time. It is an easy read with tons of great tips and facts. It encouraged me to knockout sugar – It has been about a week and 2 days and I feel great. I have some sugar cravings but I have been drinking wheatgrass and that has helped a bit.  I also have picked up more nuts and BRAMI beans ( I am addicted) to help curb the cravings.


I am still juicing with fruit and will have fruit during the day but I am avoiding all sweets ( Ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, etc.  I am also trying to avoid dairy ( which was in the Ice cream) and gluten.

You can purchase the book on AMAZON or on her website – you can also purchase a program with her for $29.95 that starts next week that helps you through a program for a few weeks that looks really great- I am definitely going to do that.

I have a ton of questions on supplements and how to look for sugars etc.

Sugar is in everything it is a bit scary – even your pasta sauce – so you have to be so careful and most of the time it doesn’t just say SUGAR – it says something else so you have to really read the ingredients and know what everything is – before you make that purchase.
