Stacy shares how difficult it was to give up her sugar and sugar-free indulgences.

Sep 9, 2010

I am a sugar addict. No scratch that -- complete sugar and sugar-free addict. I had no idea that sugar was in almost everything I put into my body or how horrible sugar substitute was! I grew up in a diet soda, diet everything household. I’m a grab and go person, so I depend on protein bars, shakes, really anything within an arm’s reach (including the occasional fast food run). It goes against everything Jackie teaches, and while I know that cutting sugar is going to be extremely difficult, I am done being unhealthy, and I know that I need a change.

To be quite honest Jackie scares me a little bit -- no one can be THAT intense all the time…I guess we will see how this all shapes up!
