A 6-week program designed to help you kick the sweet stuff once and for all.
Whether you subsist on sugar to try and maintain your energy, believe you’ve ‘inherited’ a sweet tooth, or find it’s cravings that undo all of your other good work, you’re not alone. Many people struggle to avoid sugar.
Our minds trick us into thinking it’s just one little snack here, a couple of bites there, an office birthday celebration, a much needed afternoon pick-me-up or a post dinner ‘treat’… however the cumulative effect of this over months, years and decades really adds up.
Many people believe they don’t eat that badly, yet they can’t believe the major improvements in their health when they say goodbye to excess sugar.
Our body physically and biochemically changes to crave more of the sweet stuff. Additionally, the more sugar we eat, the more insulin the body has to produce, which in excess, instructs the body to store fat and avoid burning it.
When it comes to sugar, we can easily slip into a tricky cycle where we don’t realise just how much we’re eating. Or we do, but we can’t seem to stop. And there are many valid reasons for this—that have nothing to do with willpower. Official guidelines suggest we consume no more than 6 teaspoons per day for optimum health. Yet, in many developed countries, people consume an average of 37 teaspoons of sugar a day (NZ statistics, 2021)—that’s an additional 124g of sugar per day, or 45kg of sugar per year for our body’s load!
In this 6-week online course, Dr Libby teaches you how to kick the sweet stuff once and for all and reset your body’s natural set-point for sweet foods.
Don’t let it take a health crisis to wake you up to change the way you’re living.
A chocolate bar with 24g of sugar is equal to 5 teaspoons of sugar.

1. Shake off
The first stage is all about shaking off your body’s physical reliance on sugar. This is done gently and supportively using Dr Libby’s knowledge and wisdom of the body systems (such as the gut and brain) and biochemical pathways sugar impacts.
The second stage focuses on the mental and emotional aspects of sugar and why we crave it. It teaches you practical tools, techniques and tips on what to reach for (or what to do) in those moments when your mind–or tastebuds–crave sugar.
The final stage looks at the practical aspects of swapping out sugar and how to integrate this into your life moving forward. You’ll be given ideas, and tips for how to maintain a low refined sugar intake without ever feeling deprived.
Life asks us to make endless choices, and saying goodbye to the sweet stuff could be one of very best you’ll ever make. Come and join this course and find out why.
