Today I want to thank everyone who is taking a chance on Sugar Freedom, especially my students, family members, and friends who were willing to try it first.

I was thrilled when I got a call from Nancy yesterday, telling me that she was back in her skinny jeans. Nancy had lost over 50 pounds on the Atkins diet three years ago, but her weight was starting to creep back up.
Those of us who have long dieting careers know that maintenance is probably the greatest challenge of fat loss and transformation, and I can't tell you how many times I have looked at the scale and longed for "lighter days."
The good news is that there are growing numbers of women and men who are getting the balance right, losing fat, and learning the personal strategies they need to use in order to reach their goals and keep them.
Back to Nancy's story: she did have one problem last week. If you've completed the Three Day Sugar Strike, it's time to add back low sugar fruit. The fiber, antioxidants, and of course the delicious flavor of fruits make them a staple of healthy eating strategies. However, some individuals can be highly sensitive to the sugar in fruit, namely fructose. I am one of those people, and Nancy tells me that she is too.
Here's what happened. Nancy had an apple with peanut butter, and the "Sugar Thoughts" came back, along with some sugar snacking. The good news is that she got right back on track with Sugar Freedom the next day, and the best part is that this happened before she got back into those skinny jeans.
So what can we learn from her experience? When it's time to add back fruit, go for low sugar varieties like berries and Granny Smith apples. Instead of pairing your fruit with a nut butter, try having it with raw unsalted almonds, or Greek yogurt.
Oh and one more thing, another key to fat loss and weight maintenance is exercise, not to mention the fact that exercise lowers blood sugar and increases insulin sensitivity. If I may, I'd like to let you know that the training program that I use at home and at Gordon Studio is on sale for less than a third of what I paid for the program back in 2008.

Thanks again to Nancy for sharing her story, and here's to your success.
