Most people like sugar, but a question about being “addicted” to it still lingers, for some... There is such a big difference between someone who eats sugar once in awhile and can go weeks without it and someone who cannot stop thinking about it and needs it every single day.
In today’s video, I break down the other side of sugar addiction, watch it below.
If you are addicted to sugar, you are not alone. I’m a recovering sugar addict and I have a brief story about it to share with you, I share more of the story in other videos too so make sure you are subscribed to the blog to learn more.
Over 8 years ago, I began this nutrition and life coaching practice to help people and centered it around “loving yourself” because it seemed to be a common denominator between every person I worked with. As I began helping more and more people as a practitioner and coach, I noticed how I was personally still using work, sugar and obsessive eating of certain foods to escape and numb out. I started to see my own addiction to sugar and it was so loud I could no longer ignore it!
I was not just craving sugar here and there, I was in a committed relationship with the stuff and began to see that it was a pattern for most of my life.
The irony of it all is that the root of “addictive behavior” is the avoidance of loving yourself. So there I was, trying to teach others the practice to love themselves and to value themselves and I was being faced with the reality of not loving or valuing myself. Talk about a wake up call and a humbling smack in the face. It was hard to look in that mirror and I cried many tears during that time.
I knew I had no choice but to face my own lack of self love if I was to grow up and help more people.
I thought it was just about the sugar and the “sweet tooth” I had my entire life, but I learned it was about so much more. The lack of love I had for myself impacted how I showed up in all of my relationships, my career and day to day activities, even how I dealt with my finances.
Now, 8 years later, I’m coaching clients privately and within groups through their suffering with food, body, emotional healing, eating patterns, craving, obsessive behaviors, relationships, career goals and purpose.
At the root of it all, is Love of the Self.
This invaluable work really is so much deeper than “sugar addiction”, although this is where some of us must start to peel back the layers to grow and open our hearts.
This summer, I have a handful of openings for private coaching with clients who want to change their life and have the urge to create a new way of being and living. This person wants to own all the parts of themselves, heal the trauma and step into their purpose and serve the greater good. They want to get their health/nutrition, relationships and life into alignment and experience peace of mind and connection to helping others.
