—Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Ph.D., #1 New York Times best-selling author of Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting
Welcome. I invite you to imagine that I'm giving
you a warm, joyful, congratulatory hug because you're about to embark on what
could be the most exciting adventure of your life.
Together we'll go on a thrilling, fulfilling, interactive escapade that engages,
motivates, and nurtures you. This six-week program will help you appreciate, honor,
respect, and approve of your body; revitalize, refresh, and renew yourself; improve
your concentration and become more productive; boost your metabolism and
moods; peel off those extra unwanted pounds that may have been plaguing you
for years; rev up your libido (yes, this can happen!); recharge your relationships; put
your health back on track; and heighten your pleasure in just about everything you
choose to do.
In Beyond Sugar Shock, we'll celebrate wholesome, quality foods, because when you let go
of your junk-food habit, you'll begin to relish clean, healthy foods. You'll also be getting
a compassionate, far-reaching, life-changing Mind-Body-Spirit program, which
offers you easy tools and tactics to bring all of your thoughts, emotions, spirituality,
and physical needs into alignment.
That's what makes Beyond Sugar Shock so different. Most books about how to
change what you eat and lose weight focus almost exclusively on what you put in
your mouth and how much you exercise. After spending well over a decade educating,
inspiring, and coaching sugar and carb addicts like you and creating tips and
techniques to keep you gleefully sugar-free, I've discovered that adjusting what you
eat or how much you move isn't nearly enough to help you totally release your carb
Trust me, your Mind matters, too. You're far more likely to complete this program
successfully and make permanent changes to the way you eat if you maintain
a positive attitude and mind-set over the next six weeks. That means staying happy,
engaged, and focused as you move from one week's activities to the next.
I'll also show you some fantastic ways to control those insidious mind
games otherwise known as cravings. Now that you're kicking sugar, cravings may
hit, so you want to be prepared.
Okay, so Body and Mind probably make a lot of sense to you. But Spirit? After
all, you just want to quit sugar or shed weight, not become a woo-woo, airy-fairy
person, right? Let me explain.
Most sugar addicts, I've noticed, are steeped, mired, and entrapped in negative
thought patterns. For one thing, they're often overly focused on their bodies
or weight. Their self-disgust is almost palpable. In fact, when people first come to
me for help, they often say things like, "I hate my body" or "I detest my big belly."
They also believe that quitting their heavily entrenched habit is close to impossible.
They'll say, "I just can't envision life without my favorite sugary snacks."
That's why just addressing your Mind and Body isn't nearly enough. To truly
make lasting peace with your sugar or carb relationship—and to rise above it and
let it go—you also need to address your Spirit. By that word, I mean two things.
First, your goal is to regularly fill up on activities that nourish and replenish you. For
instance, you'll need to get both sufficient Vitamin Z (sleep) and physical activity.
Both will lift your Spirit.
Once you've boosted your morale, you've set the stage to take yourself to
an even higher plane so you can really focus on your Spirit. Doing such enriching
activities as meditation, forgiveness, gratitude, or yoga will soothe you, lift
your moods, and strengthen your ability to happily and gracefully follow through
with this program. You may even begin to experience more joy and freedom, feel
more connected to your higher consciousness, and become more eager to pursue
Letting go of your addictions will allow you to get a yummy, sweeter, delicious,
scrumptious, luscious, sensuous life—one that I call sweeterlicious. You'll also experience
an exhilarating feeling of liberation from your sugar addiction, as many of my
private and group coaching clients, as well as thousands of Sugar Kickers I've helped
worldwide, have discovered.
It's time to buckle up. Beyond Sugar Shock will give you a fast-moving, rollercoaster
ride to a slimmer, sexier body, a happier disposition, and a sweeterlicious
life. Get ready to be inspired!
