Do you have weight gain, especially around your belly, that you just can't shift no matter how much you try?

Are you coping with energy highs and lows each day and an afternoon nap sounds like a great idea?


Do you have digestive or skin issues and feel  like you suffer with bloating almost daily?

Do you feel irritable, emotional and angry and feel like your PMS symptoms are worsening?

Well, sugar could be the problem

Healthy Food

You have tried so many things

  • Lot's of different diets and exercise regimes over the years.

  • Guzzled back a ton of supplements to help get your hormones under control.


  • Trips to the doctors who either offer you a pill or tell you there's not much you can do.

  • And so much more.

But, no matter how hard you try, you seem to be stuck with your symptoms.



Because sugar can be a major cause of imbalanced hormones, weight gain, lack of energy and so much more.


It's not just about the chocolate biscuit that you eat now and again, it's about the hidden sugars that you don't even realise you are consuming.

So how does sugar do this?  A brief overview

When you eat sugar (whether added, natural, hidden or carbohydrates) your pancreas releases insulin.

Insulin transports the sugar (glucose) to your cells and tells the cells to absorb the glucose for energy.

However, when the cells become full, the glucose then gets stored in your fat cells (usually around your waist line).  And unless you are facing a famine sometime soon, that's where they stay - hello, that wobbly belly fat that you can't get rid of.

Too much insulin in your blood causes sugar spikes and crashes - hello moodiness, irritability, sleep issues, anxiety etc. and can lead to insulin resistance.

It also lowers another hormone (sex hormone binding globulin) which eventually causes oestrogen to rise - hello moodiness, irritability, sleep issues, anxiety, etc. 

Plus if you are approaching menopause, the symptoms intensify and you can add hot flushes, nights sweats and more to the equation.

Add in tiredness, weight gain, skin and digestive problems and other inflammatory issues and you can see how sugar can cause a whole host of symptoms

I'm Melissa Lowe, Nutrition & Health Coach 

I used to suffer with severe PMS and it just didn't seem to be something that I could get control of.

So I decided to look 'outside the box' and focus on what I was eating. Giving up sugar was one of the first things that I tried.


I didn't even used to eat much of the 'sweet' stuff (well, if you don't count several chocolate biscuits after dinner or the 2 sugars I used to have in each of my 3 coffees a day).  But it was actually the hidden sugars that I was unknowingly overloading on.

Muesli, fruit yoghurt, pasta sauces and so on.  I was consuming a lot of sugar without even realising it.

So, I decided to cut it out.  It wasn't easy at first, but a month after going sugar free I couldn't believe how much better I felt.


I no longer had sugar cravings, I lost weight and my PMS symptoms reduced - I felt so much better and more in control of my body and emotions.
