What Will I Learn?
  • Use biology, not psychology, to overcome your sugar cravings. This is important, because sugar cravings are not a lack of self-control, they're your brain telling you it is suffering an energy crisis
  • Deploy multiple weapons against your sugar gremlin. Diet and exercise are there, but there is more to better body chemistry than eating less and moving more.
  • Create BETTER BODY CHEMISTRY, so that you optimize your health. You'll feel less fatigued, think more clearly, be in a better mood and if you're carrying a few extra pounds, you'll find they slowly melt away.

  • No prerequisite knowledge is needed, although a high school course in biology will be helpful
