Topics Discussed in This Episode:

  • Becoming sugar-free
  • How sugar impacts our mental health
  • What sugar does to our hormones and how it affects aging
  • How to balance our meals and the important components we need to pay attention to
  • Intermittent fasting and how to support our thyroid and adrenal health 

Key Takeaways:

  • When we have an increase in sugar, we produce a tremendous amount of uric acid, which not only drives gout and joint pain but also mental illness such as bipolar disorder.
  • Increased sugar levels also have a direct connection to depression and anxiety. 

Julie said:

“When we find those amazing ways to cope, then the need for the food that we’re addicted to falls away instead of being a forced thing.”
