After a 24-hour trek, I found myself in the Holy Land at my hotel in Bethlehem, Palestine. Bethlehem is a city that is 2,700 feet above sea level and you can feel it! Two years ago, I talked myself out of taking this trip, ironically when I really could’ve afforded it. But hey, I made it happen!

Let me just get it out of the way now: There is no quick fix for sugar addiction. Sugar is in just about everything we eat. Even those foods that may not appear to be sugar, turn into sugar, like pasta, rice, and bread. Fighting the sugar monster is a long, but achievable battle!

Emotional eaters tend to opt for high-carbohydrate, high calorie foods with little to no nutritional value in response to stress, boredom, or any other emotional turmoil. The end goal is to find comfort and mask overwhelming feelings in a sea of cheese fries with a side of garlic parmesan chicken wings! Sweet serenity!
 
I don't speak as an expert; I speak as someone who battles with and most often conquers emotional eating. My daily routine used to involve choosing foods that contained lots of cheese, gravy, pasta, or meat. All I could think about was what I would eat for lunch and which restaurant I would visit for dinner.

I used to think that fruit juice, wheat bread, and “healthy” frozen lunches were the best ways to lose weight and be healthy. As I’m learning more and more in my health coaching studies, there are some ingredients in foods that appear to be healthy, but are most certainly not. A simple read of the ingredients label will uncover these sneaky saboteurs!
 
Many products that are sold to us as healthy are secretly adding astronomical amounts of sugar, salt, soy, and gluten to our meals. You have to look past the manufacturer’s promises and the pretty words on the front of the packaging. Turn it over, look past the nutrition facts, and go straight for the ingredients list. The truth is there, but keep in mind there are still certain things that manufacturers are not required to disclose (i.e. what exactly does “natural” mean).

Multiply the scariness of that title by 1000. That's how I felt when I opened the letter from my doctor that said, "You have to come back for further testing because we found abnormal cells." My heart sank and I went into immediate devastation mode. I felt like I had already gone through enough and would be going through more because a few weeks after that, I was heading into surgery to repair a hernia that I had ignored for 2 years (I wish I would've done this while I was still on that good employer-sponsored healthcare). If you suffer through bouts of anxiety and depression, like I do, then you know that certain life events are big hits.
