Emotional Attachment to Sugar and How to Let Go

Going Sugarless: The Lifestyle Change that We All Need


Danielle Daem Notable Quotes

“Emotions are a really, really important piece of being a human being. All the emotions, not just the joy and the happiness, but the heavy emotions as well. And when we can allow that energy to move in our body and flow through us, we can start disconnecting from those patterns of needing to reach for food every time we’re stressed, or every time we’re lonely, or every time we’re depressed.”
Danielle Daem


Episode Summary

If you’re a long-time listener of the show, you would know that sugar, sugar addiction, and quitting sugar is a topic near and dear to our hearts and that quitting sugar was how Lori and I started to take back control of our health. And if you’re someone who’s looking to take back control of your own health, then learning about what sugar does and how you can walk away from it are great first steps to take.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to holistic nutrition coach Danielle Daem to share with us her own accidental sugar detox journey and how that turned her life around. She also talks about the emotional connection to sugar and how we can take the first steps to disconnecting that attachment towards a healthier version of ourselves.
