Personal Story

It’s the kind of embarrassing moment you never forget…

…the morning I had to fess up to my roommate that I’d eaten her entire container of frosted sugar cookies. I thought I’d sneak just one…or two, and before I knew it, all twelve were gone.

All twelve cookies.

In one night.

And to make matters worse, I was in school to be a Registered Dietitian!

I was acing all of my classes, but felt like a fraud.

I didn’t feel like this was me, and yet it didn’t even feel like a choice.

There were hundreds of similar moments. Intentionally buying “Halloween candy” in August. Hitting up McDonald’s for Shamrock Shakes in March. Downing Pumpkin Spice lattes at Starbucks in September.

My family lovingly teased me, calling me “Cookie Monster” and my friends called me “Garbage Disposal” (not even kidding). At first I laughed along with them, but after a while, the laughter started to sting. I couldn’t get enough candy and sweets.

At the same time, I was trying to follow all the “dieting rules” I was learning in school (low-fat, low-calorie, exercise more, you know the drill). I was eating low-fat meals and working out like a maniac. I tried countless “sugar detoxes.” But I kept caving. I kept putting on weight. Was I a saint? Of course not. But I was “good” 90 percent of the time.

Most of the time, I was starving! I restricted my calories so much that at one point I was down to 1700 a day. And despite my best efforts, I was 5, then 10, 15, and then 20 pounds overweight.. I was weak, exhausted, and I was bloated and heavier than I’ve ever been. I was overweight and felt horrible about myself.

What’s more, I was obsessed with food: thoughts of it, anxiety over it, dreaming about it. It was taking over my life. So much for losing weight, I was losing my MIND.

That’s when I knew something was flawed. I assumed it was me.

And I’d wind up in the same place in a matter of days. Every time I would be a little more angry at myself for being too weak to control it, breaking my own promises and not being able to stick to my decisions. Maybe I was just flawed?

The truth was — I was a sugar addict.

Years later I realized I had, what I now know, is sugar addiction. Most people don’t know it, but sugar has the same effect on the brain as cocaine. It triggers the same rewards centers.

And here’s the kicker — those dieting “rules” I was learning in dietitian school only added fuel to the fire. Following the rules failed me and brought me to the unhealthiest point of my life… and my heaviest weight.

But what happened next is what pushed me over the edge.

But what happened next is what pushed me over the edge.

"I had for so long believed that sugar addiction and weight was part of my identity, my genetics. That was a lie."

"I had for so long believed that sugar addiction and weight was part of my identity, my genetics.
That was a lie."

I remember when I got the call from my mother one morning after class: My dad was running a road race in our town when he started to feel tightness in his chest that stopped him cold. Instead of sailing across the finish line per usual, he walked across, holding his chest. He went to the doctor—and was rushed into major heart surgery.

I was floored. My father, who was only 47 at the time, was the picture of health: He’d followed all the same “rules” I’d been learning and following: Low fat, “heart-healthy” oatmeal for breakfast with skim milk diligently every morning, trimming any extra fat off his meat, he didn’t even look at bacon. The only difference was he never had a lick of dessert (I didn’t have enough “willpower” to resist). He even ran 3 miles a day.

I was sitting with my father in his hospital room after the surgery when the dietitian came in. I, of course, was training to be an RD myself, but I didn’t mention this. I wanted to hear what this expert had to say, because clearly the things my father had been doing (the same things I was learning) hadn’t helped at all.
Maybe she would tell us something different.
Nope.

“Try to maintain a low-fat, low-calorie diet,” she said. “Never look at a stick of butter again. Eat margarine. Eat oatmeal.”
I told her, “He was already doing all of that.”

And all she could say was, “Okay, well, keep doing it.”

I was furious. I was sitting there, thinking, “You’re telling him to continue to do the very things that landed him on your operating table in the first place!”

And there I was, also doing all the “right things,” and heavier than I’d ever been. What was happening?!
That’s when I became determined to figure it out on my own. I had to become my own advocate so I could be my dad’s advocate, too.

So I dove into scientific research and studies that were outside of my assigned coursework.

What I learned was that the rules were wrong! If I wanted different results, I needed to do the exact opposite of what I was learning in school.

I quit the low-fat, low-cal dieting. I started eating MORE calories, and MORE fat. I began to add in key supplements to support my brain chemistry so that I wouldn’t crave the sugar. I backed off the exercise, and exercised LESS. I quite literally did the opposite of everything!

And as a result, everything changed.

I felt full and satisfied. Focused and confident—and full of energy.

I felt like myself again!

I felt full and satisfied. Focused and confident—and full of energy.

I felt like myself again!

Most notably, thoughts and anxiety about food went away—and so did the pounds. They seemed to just vanish. And within just a few months, I was 20 pounds lighter, and have never looked back.

Not only was this shocking to me because of how this changed me physically, but also because of how it changed my ideas about myself. I had for so long believed that a sugar addiction and weight problem was just part of my identity, my genetics, my destiny…me. And that was a lie.

It’s no wonder our country is getting fatter and sicker. We’re not only following the wrong rules; we believe the wrong things.

In fact, I started breaking with LOTS of rules after I lost weight: I became more adventurous and became more in touch with who I was and could be. I didn’t just get my ears pierced, I got a bunch of piercings. I got one tattoo—and then I got two more. Instead of staying home and logging my calories, I booked a trip with a friend to St. Kitts to climb a volcano, which was totally out of my comfort zone. I went cliff jumping. Skydiving. I backpacked across Europe. I dyed my hair blue.

You may not choose to do any of these things! That’s okay! But I bet you’d be surprised at what you could and would do if you felt more confident, more like the best version of you...the you who is underneath those extra pounds.

This is my life calling—to help women like you become more of who you are—by breaking free from diets and workouts that aren't working no matter how hard you try, addressing your underlying weight loss blockers so that you can lose the weight that isn't serving you, and be empowered—knowing exactly what to do to be in control of your weight and free from cravings at all times.

As a woman, just like you, I’m living proof that this can happen, and that letting go of your ideas about food and about yourself can change everything.

That’s why I’ve made it my personal mission to share the truth and power of how weight loss actually works with as many women as possible. And I have since helped thousands of women like you get the results in their waistlines, mindsets and lives that they were looking for.

It was thrilling to experience this transformation first hand. But what’s even more thrilling and fulfilling is to watch you smile, laugh, and sometimes even cry when you realize you can rewrite your own rules and overcome challenges you never thought possible. When you lose weight and become free of food-related thoughts, and you recognize yourself again, your confidence and love for life surges. Let me tell you, there is nothing better than that.

I can’t wait to hear your story. I already know it has a happy ending.
