The amount of information out there is a bit crazy is it not? There is no shortage of nutrition & health books, ‘experts’ on morning news shows and daytime TV proclaiming the latest superfood or giving fear messages about your laundry soap. Not to mention the seemingly endless 30 second sound bites about the ‘latest’ study on the evening news. It can all become a bit much. The good news is that there is indeed a solution; a different way to achieve the health you’re looking for that is grounded in science, without the hype, that’s easy to implement without the need for exotic foods & powders
In a nutshell – there is a way out of the confusion!
The reason you’re stuck is because you’re overwhelmed and bogged down with information; some of it has bits of truth, truth taken out of context, while much of it is simply untrue at best and dangerous at worst. Let’s face it, everyone these days is a nutrition expert, but can that really be true?
Nothing is wrong with you!
It’s just that you’ve likely tried countless diets with complex rules, taken questionable supplements, guzzled countless kale smoothies, cut out foods that are supposedly bad, tried the latest trend, or been promised simple solutions for complex problems without the long-lasting success you’ve been looking for. You’re struggling because you haven’t been given the guidance and support that is needed to deal with the challenges of real life; you haven’t been given accurate information nor worked with someone who’s able to help you truly understand your situation and the ‘why’ behind the steps you need to take to have the health you’re looking for.
“Doug was recommended to me by a family member and his knowledge and support have been instrumental in helping me to understand the relationship between food and diabetes. Since contacting Doug, I have lost weight, maintained steady blood sugar and A1C levels and have felt much healthier and energetic overall. I would highly recommend Doug!”
