Testimonials from previous participants
After a life long struggle with sugar cravings and weight management I began my eating habits transformation with Katherine’s Workshop on the Effects of Sugar and How to Curb Cravings. It gave me a clear understanding of the detrimental effects of refined sugar consumption and practical ways to reduce it. Participation in the 4 week Refined Sugar Free Program put an end to my sugar cravings, resulted in weight loss without any sense of deprivation, and helped me to develop sustainable healthy eating habits. Katherine’s knowledgeable and practical advice was instrumental in my success. For anyone looking for a positive change in their eating habits I would highly recommend participation in Custom Nutrition Guelph’s programs!

I found this program to be enlightening, informative and easy to follow. For me it was interesting how easy yet hard it was to eliminate refined sugar for 2 weeks. Discovering that some of my "healthy" foods did have sugar added (canned peas, hot sauce) was fascinating but having Katherine available to offer suggested alternatives was fantastic. I find I'm now much more conscious of labels when buying foods and am maintaining at about 90% refined sugar free on most days! My energy has improved and I feel better overall. Great program!

Participating in Katherine's sugar consumption awareness program was well worth the effort. It made me look for hidden sugars in food and it was eye opening to learn how many packaged foods contain sugar.
After going without sugar for a week, and only 25 g the second week, I don't enjoy really sugary foods anymore. I'm looking forward to participating in the month long sugar reduction program.

Katherine's June sugar free program showed me just how much sugar is in everything! Even foods I was eating that I thought were healthy turned out to have a lot of sugar like salad dressings, yogurt and protein bars. I'm still eating less sugar compared to before I started but look forward to another reset in September.

I recently participated in Custom Nutrition's "Sugar Free challenge", and I was surprised not only at how easy it was, but also what a difference it made in the way I felt. Katherine provided suggestions, substitutions and support that made giving up sugar so much easier than I had thought it could be. Within a couple of days I felt better - more energetic and less tired - and it made me more conscious of the choices I was making. The program has given me the tools to make better choices and lasting changes.

I will say, I did feel the pull of sugar. My brain kept reminding me of all the snacks that I could easily cheat with, but I didn't! I really found that eating a higher fat meal helped to significantly reduce my cravings for sugar and dessert altogether. It felt good to take control of my cravings instead of just snacking because I wanted it.
