What inspired you to write 7 Steps to Get Off Sugar and Carbohydrates?
My sister inspired me to write this book. If anyone was addicted to sugar, it was her. She loved sweets. Doughnuts in the morning, soft drinks throughout the day, bread, pasta, chocolate, and candy—you get the picture. She has been overweight since she was a child. She suffered from joint pain and irritable bowel syndrome. When my sister was forty-nine, she asked me to help her get off sugar and carbohydrates. From my experience, this is difficult to do, so I created a seven-step plan for her to follow.
One week after getting off sugars and refined carbohydrates, my sister’s energy and rosacea skin condition improved. By the second week, her joints no longer ached, and the craving for sugar subsided. Two months later, she’d lost ten pounds and felt energized. After that, she lost five pounds per month until she got to her ideal weight and her rosacea disappeared completely. Since the seven-step plan worked so well for my sister, I thought I would write a book about it to help others wean themselves off these addictive foods.
How would you describe this book to someone in a 30-second blurb?
If you choose to embark on this seven-step plan, you will radically improve your health and energy by merely removing sugars and refined carbohydrates. You will lose weight naturally without going on a fad diet or buying prepared meals and supplements.
What genre do you focus on?
Nonfiction, healthy living genre because I am a registered nurse with a masters in health science, so I have a medical background. In addition, due to my illness, I understand the devastating effects of losing one’s health. So now I am passionate about helping others.
What’s the best part of your author’s life?
When I hear that my readers are succeeding in improving their health and weight. This week, a reader in my Facebook group wrote, “I completed six weeks of Susan’s program on Monday. I’m down 10 pounds, and I feel tons better. My sleep and acne are improving. I feel this is a lifestyle I can realistically keep up.”
This reader’s feedback made me happy because my words through my book showed her how to eliminate nagging symptoms and successfully improve her lifestyle.
What’s one unusual fact about you?
I am a country girl. I live on five acres, raise chickens for fresh eggs, and grow a prolific fruit orchard. I’m not afraid of bugs, spiders, or snakes.
What is your favorite pastime?
I love to swim, walk, and do Christian yoga. I’m a Christian yoga teacher, and you can find my products at ChristianYoga.com.
