You might be surprised to learn that Joy, a Holistic Nutritionist, used to be a sugar addict. It was only later in life that she learned that the sugar-free foods she was consuming and her diet at the time was a big reason for it. If you currently feel addicted to sugar, don't worry – there is hope with the strategies I share in this episode!
