It’s not quite Halloween, but grocery store shelves have been exploding with bags and bags of candy since the first day of school. Avoiding candy might be easy for you – but throughout our days we are constantly invited to add sweet treats.

Starting with the sugar-laden morning drinks offered at your favorite cafe – or the snacks people bring in to share at work – or even the glorified candy bars labeled as “high fiber” that we are convinced we need as a post workout snack… We are constantly invited to load up on Sugar in some way, shape or form.

Yes, there are sugar substitutes that many people have turned to because they are lower in calories. These may be good options, especially if you are living with diabetes. The only issue is that once your tongue tastes sweet, your body wants more.

So, in the long run, these sugar substitutes may increase cravings for (and therefore your consumption of) more sugary snacks. Ultimately, though we might avoid calories with one snack, that good deed is often undone by the increased desire for more sugar-coated calories.

Avoiding sugar takes some willpower, but honestly, almost everyone I know who has gone cold turkey to eliminate sugar says that once they get through the first 2-3 days, their taste for sugar decreases and they don’t really look for it any more.

Whether you’re ready to kick the sugar habit or just want understand more about it, I invite you to join me at one of these two upcoming sugar workshops to find out all the names for sugar that may hide in popular products, to get tips on reducing cravings and to find ways to live without it.

Thursday, October 8 at 7 pm at Joe’s Movement Emporium in Mt. Rainer, MD. Click here for registration and details.

Monday, November 2 at 7:30 pm at Center Point Healing in College Park, MD. Details and registration will be posted soon – I will post the links when they are available!

If you don’t live in the DC Metropolitan area and are interested in either of these workshops, or on working on your own relationship with sugar, contact me to schedule a 30 minute phone or Skype call to assess your needs and to work out a plan of action!

As the seasons change it’s always a good time to hit the “reset button” on our diets.

Summer’s barbecues, picnics and county fairs (and the food choices they offer) give way to more hearty foods like apples, squashes, deep greens and sweet potatoes – all ripe and delicious just as autumn leaves begin to display their showy colors. 

Join me on September 24 and October 1 to prepare and carry out a 7-day detox to treat your body to an opportunity to release toxins and to ready itself for a new season!  Details and registration form follow. Please reserve your space before September 17!

Center Point healing, where I have been seeing clients for the past 2 years, has just moved from Hyattsville to College Park!

We are now located at 7309 Baltimore Avenue, Suite 119, College Park, Maryland 20740.

The new space is much larger and will accommodate more practitioners offering acupuncture, Chinese herbs, massage and nutrition counseling, AND the new digs will have a classroom for all of us to offer workshops and ongoing classes.

Stay tuned for upcoming classes and stop by to take a look!
