Rank #1: The Book That Made Sugar Freedom Possible.
The truth is, I didn't just eliminate sugar in order to lose more than 65 pounds, and keep it off (with a 6 month period of re-gain which I will describe on today's show) for six years and counting. I also completely eliminated grains, I ate more fat, and most shocking of all, I occaisionally practiced intermittent fasting. I was truly afraid to tell anyone how I had lost all my weight, let alone write publicly about it.
Then, I saw Dr. David Perlmutter on the Dr. Oz Show. He was talking about his book, Grain Brain. I bought the book, read it, and followed Dr. Perlmutter's dietary approach in order to get back to my happy weight. The most important conviction I gained from Grain Brain was that I never ever had to eat grains again. Finally, I had the courage to write my story, and share my own approach to sugar and grain free living. If you've decided to let grains go for good, I hope you'll listen today, and read Grain Brain, by Dr. David Perlmutter

Rank #8: Introducing Freedom Fridays
How much weight could you lose if you could stick to your food and fitness plan over the week-end?
If you're like me, staying on plan is easier from Monday to Friday than it is on Saturday and Sunday. My usual work and training schedule helps me to keep my commitments. I look, feel, and perform better when I keep sugar, grains, and seconds off of the menu so it's easier to leave them alone when there is work to be done.
When Saturday and Sunday come around, the little voice in my head says, "Don't you deserve to let yourself go? Everyone else is doing it." As the Sugar Freedom Woman, I almost always stay strong, but I do get tempted!
Here is how I handle the week-ends and stay slim.
During the week I follow a Ketogenic food plan. In addition to leaving out grains and sugar, I also eliminate fruit, nuts, and dairy except for the organic heavy cream I use in my morning coffee. On the week-end I pick one day when I can enjoy a piece of fruit, a serving of stevia sweetened dark chocolate, or an elegant serving of cheese.
On very special occasions, I will make my Freedom Chocolate Mousse, and serve it with strawberries and crushed pistachios. It is delicious, elegant, and it doesn't trigger my appetite.
If we eat simply during the week, we can add back a few of our Fancy Freedom Foods without gaining fat.
If you want to take your Sugar Freedom results to the next level, join my Six Week Challenge. Get meal plans, training, social support, and coaching calls.

Rank #9: Freedom Friday Podcast
When you first give up sugar, grains, and processed vegetable oils, the transition can be rough. You may have to eat different meals than your normal weight friends and family members. Your energy may be uneven because you don't know how to deal with the transition from glucose to fat burning. You may consider a sugar free eating plan to be a diet instead of permanent shift in nutrition, with leaves you open to the temptation of cheating.
Cathy has been there, and she shares what works for her, and for her clients and readers, who have discovered fat loss and fitness solutions that can work for you too.

Rank #12: Freedom Friday #5 Appetite Management
As we head into 2017, there are plenty of articles and news reports coming out that cover the trouble with sugar. If sugar consumption leads to the diseases of modern life, how do we eat less of it? Just how difficult is it to lead a sugar free lifestyle? Catherine shares the experiences of her readers and clients when it comes to the appetite reducing effects of a sugar free eating strategy.
Yes, getting off of sugar is a challenge, but staying off of it can reduce appetite, making healthy eating easier with time.

Rank #13: Oops, I did it again: How changing my way of eating brought back the cravings.
"I'll do it."
I am so passionate about training, coaching, dancing, sininging, and choreogrphy that I would not hesitate to give up sugary starchy foods for the rest of my life.
Still, I keep trying to add back more fruit and some grains, and reducing the fat in my eating plans in order to make them less extreme, more mainstream, and easier to offer to a broader audience. What I have had to accept is the fact that what is popular isn't what works for me, and it doesn't work well for my readers and listeners who struggle with sugar compulion, insulin resistance, and carbohydrate intolerance.
Since the start of 2017 I have been tinkering with my nutrition, and it has backfired. Thankfully, I am back on the Keto-cart and feeling so much better. Here is what I have learned, and I hope this episode helps you to find the eating plan that works for you, for life.
