    This is a very good informative podcast – I know Theresa and she does walk her talk. She eats all organic, non GMO foods and she avoids gluten, sugar, and dairy. I have been inspired to keep myself honest and to eat more fruits and vegetables myself on a daily basis.

    I really enjoyed the podcast. I have listened to Theresa talk on other
    nutrition subjects and every time I learn something new and informative.
    She definitely is well versed in nutrition and I love the enthusiasm she brings to nutrition. I highly recommend her course detox for weight loss as that is very informative and very well laid out by topic.

    Ughhh…, sugar is my weakness although I know it’s terrible for me. This was a great discussion about how to deal with the sugar addiction and cravings. I didn’t know much about glycemic index before listening to this….I’m going to try the coconut sugar and fruits for sweeteners…. Please notify me when you have Theresa Nicole on again, maybe I can learn more…

    • Gail Zugerman

    learn something new when I listen to her talk about nutrition. She
    is very knowledgeable and her enthusiasm shines through when she
    talks about nutrition I highly recommend her course she mentioned on the podcast.

    Great episode! I hadn’t known sugar’s effects on aging prior to listening to this episode. That is good to know. I’m also definitely going to try to incorporate more fruits and healthier alternative to sugar, such as honey, as was mentioned. Thanks Gail and Theresa for the great content!
