Ditch Your Diet Program


This is my signature class.  Please take a moment to search my blog for Testimonials.  People who have taken this class to date did not think it would work, and they all were victorious.

By the end of the 4 week class, they no longer craved sugar and chemicals and all the junk food that they were addicted to.  This is not a class to lose weight, it’s a class to learn how to eat to be healthy, but everyone who has taken this class HAS lost weight.  I lost 65 pounds eating for my health.  I will never diet again.

I can’t wait to share my strategy with you to eat the nutrition that your body is craving so that you too can FEEL GREAT AGAIN!  Once you start eating the rainbow of real food, you are no longer starving your body.  Your body returns to balance, and eventually releases the excess weight.  Even better, your body begins to heal and release the symptoms of ill health that it has been sharing with  you.  It Feels Good to Feel Good, and becomes easier to sustain once you cook, control what you put into your body, and develop the life style skill of eating for your health.  You also get back your hunger hormones, which help you regulate portions in the future and you get back all of your feel good hormones, so your moods become brighter and that adds to your feelings of well-being.

THIS WORKS, and I want you to win.


There are replays and there is a private Facebook group for support.  And when you need support, in between classes, if you email me I will be there to answer your questions and encourage you to stay true to your goals to relearn how to eat for your future health.

I’m not talking about the lose-weight variety although those diets are probably bad for you too.

I’m talking about the Standard American Diet – acronym SAD (for a reason)

What IS the SAD diet?  Fake food, processed foods, fast foods, processed frozen foods, and restaurant food that isn’t farm to table.  (It comes in little baggies, gets zapped and arranged on your plate,)

The SAD diet is loaded with sugar, salt, chemicals with names you can’t recognize or know what they are.  They do not promote health in your body.  You need real food.


Recent research from Northeastern University’s Network Science Institute indicates that 73 percent of the United States food supply is ultra-processed.


Two new studies last year, University of North Carolina and the second one from Utah University concluded that 83% of Americans are metabolically unfit and it is directly attributed to the Standard American Diet.  What does this mean?  The majority of Americans are on the precipice of chronic illnesses, Type II diabetes, Cancer, Heart Disease, Autoimmune disease, Liver Disease.  Each of us can change this by taking back control over what we eat.



Want to know why?

The SAD diet Can Cause…..

  • Weight
  • Obesity
  • Your hormones that regulate hunger to stop functioning
  • Your happiness hormones to go dormant
  • Your immune system to no longer protect you
  • Leaky gut
  • Fatty Liver disease, which is the #1 cause of heart disease (more than smoking cigarettes.)
  • High blood pressure
  • Triglycerides
  • Small particle LDL cholesterol ( the bad kind of cholesterol)
  • Cancer
  •  Diabetes
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Dementia
  • Aging (shortens telomeres)
  • Skin (sugar causes wrinkles, acne, psoriasis, eczema)


You are probably wondering, “Ok Cheryl.  What the heck do I do instead???!!!  This is all I’ve ever known to be right.”

I’m GLAD you asked!!

The GLAD diet is designed to help you eat for HEALTH.  Inside and Out.

I’m talking better skin.

Better mood

Losing weight without even trying.

Reducing inflammation and joint pain.

Better Brain Function.

Healthy hormone function.

And best of all, your body starts to celebrate because it starts to feel good, and it feels good to FEEL good!!


If you continue eating the Standard American Diet…..you’ll get Standard American Diseases (like autoimmune diseases, heart disease, diabetes and cancer) and frankly set yourself up to die the Standard American Death.


Talk about SAD.  How SAD is that?

Want to discover step #1?

Easy.  Ditch the sugar and ditch the chemicals in processed and fast food.

I’ll show you how withOUT feeling like you’re missing out.

I know you have tried a bazillion diets.

I understand how many times you have tried different approaches to this and failed.  Me too.

Talk about frustration.

But its NOT YOUR fault.  None of us were taught how dangerous sugar and processed food chemicals are, or that they interfere with our hunger and happiness hormones.

Imagine a better solution to what you have been doing your entire life.

I have found a better way, and I want to show it to you.  And it works in 4 weeks or less.

To adopt healthy habits and change your eating, it all starts with sugar.  Processed food and fast food is loaded with sugar.  And chemicals…….

First we break the addiction.

Sugar is a poison that is addictive, and you need to break that addiction to HEAL YOUR PAIN or

to LOSE WEIGHT.  This is  also important if you just want to upgrade your health.

It’s not about willpower.   It never was……..



It’s an addiction


It messes with the hormones that regulate your appetite. It impacts your mood and your brain.


Changing your diet is not about “will power.” Sugar and these chemicals become  “won’t power.” No wonder you couldn’t win before…….


I get it.  Your problem is not you. You never stood a chance. You are addicted to sugar and to these chemicals.   And big FOOD did it on purpose,  Dieting is BIG BUSINESS and BIG FOOD, BIG PHARM and BIG CHEMICAL don’t want you to win.


There are large amounts of hidden sugars in processed foods and fast food, which call your name and the addiction makes it practically impossible to stay the course.


Ditching the CRAP


is the first step to get your health back. You get to choose. Are you going to feed your body health? Or are you going to feed your body sickness?




We all think of sugar as this little white harmless granule but the truth is sugar does a lot more than you think as it impacts our bodies.


  • Sugar suppresses our immune system
  • It contributed to weight gain and obesity
  • It increases fatty liver disease, triglycerides, and high blood pressure.  It raises harmful cholesterol.
  • It impacts our insulin and contributes significantly to diabetes and heart disease
  • It causes migraines and headaches
  • It contributes to hyperactivity, anxiety, depression and  creates concentration difficulties
  • It shortens our teleomeres and causes premature aging
  • It probably feeds cancer
  • It mucks with our hormones, including our feel good hormones and our appetite hormones
  • it causes tooth decay
  • Its addictive


Chemicals in processed and fast food:

  • MSG which is a neurotoxin and add no food value to the food.
  • They are also addictive.
  • They lack nutritional value and are empty calories
  • They have unhealthy levels of added sugar, sodium and fat.
  • They are full of artificial ingredients. There are about 5,000 substances that are untested.  That includes additives to change color, texture, flavor and odor as well as ingredients like preservatives and sweeteners.
  • They are chemically altered artificial flavors, additives and other ingredients
  • They are quicker to digest and since they have numbed your hunger regulation hormones, you want to eat again, more and more and are never satiated.



This is a 4-week plan to get you over the addiction, and we will all do it together.  We start with an orientation so that you can get set up and ready to go, and then we dig in.  This plan breaks the addiction.  This plan provides support.

What clients had to say about previous Sugar Detoxes


Take a moment to read these.  People who took my first two classes all shared that they didn’t think it was going to work.  Nothing would break their addiction to these foods.  They wouldn’t be able to sustain it.  But they all have come back to share that THIS WORKS, and no one is more surprised than they are.  It will work for you too.


Testimonials on the class:
“I want to share some good news with you. With your help over the years, we have changed our diet and my husbands A1C is down to 6.1 from a high of 11.2. We are so thrilled. We honor you for showing us what is possible.”
“I did not have a sugar addiction (so I thought) until I enrolled in Cheryl’s Ditch the SAD class. I wanted to learn more about health.
In summary. This is why I recommend this program:
Start living a healthier lifestyle (body, mind and soul)
Knowledge is powerful…you do better when you know better.
Something magical begins to take place immediately when you say YES and enroll. And Cheryl is there to support you, before, during and after the program ends.
In 4 short weeks, you will be thanking Cheryl for YOUR personal results.”
“Cheryl, I have so much love and appreciation for you. I have never met any one individual so dedicated and knowledgeable bringing simple and effective steps to prevention and healing through eating healthy foods. Through your Ditch Your Diet class I have learned so much about transitioning my eating patterns and fueling my body to heal from the inside out.”
“I do feel better and beginning to lose some weight. I have way more to go. I so love her fun nature, knowledge of how-to de-stress and overall care and concern for others. I plan on continuing to eat my way to a healthier life and implementing her ideas for an overall healthier and happier life! I have so much more I want to accomplish in my retirement years and this way I feel that I can do that!!! We all need an advocate on our side, and I have found that with Cheryl. Thank you so much for coming into my life!!!”
“As I try things, I trust Cheryl more and more. And I find my body changing. The biggest thing is my arthritis is better!!!!! I walk better. But I am not fast. (Falling didn’t do me any good.) And my gut is better. I know what to eat and what NOT to eat. And yes, I know if I am going to cheat, I will pay for it. Big Pharma doesn’t want you to know these simple things. They just want you to buy drugs and make them rich.”
“Every Day I was getting sicker and sicker, I was over weight, had irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, hypoglycemia, etc. I could not sleep because I felt like I was going to die in my sleep. The foods I could eat were getting fewer and fewer. I then took Cheryl’s course, I found that it was NOT a diet, but a living lesson on how to GET to get healthy. In a few weeks, not only did I lose 11 lbs, but inches where I needed it most! I now sleep every night very peacefully and LOVE LIFE. I am enjoying eating a lot of different foods I could not eat before and I feel 20 years younger. My blood tests results have also amazed me. I am SO grateful for all that I have learned and look forward to continue to practice it all. Most importantly, I would NOT have been able to do it without Cheryl’s coaching. This has proven to be the most valuable physical training I have ever received.”
“I joined this course thinking I would know most of what Cheryl would be teaching.
This course is much more than learning how to detox from sugar .
I learned how certain fruits and vegetables play a vital role in our health.
I can state first hand that once I started paying attention to what I was eating I felt better.
My acid reflux /gerd went away and I’m sleeping much better.
I’m no longer a skeptic about the merits of eating organic once Cheryl explained the negative elements going into our bodies that are used in many farms. This is the first time that I have detoxed from sugar and truly don’t have any urges to go eat an Entenmann’s crumb cake. The information received is priceless.”
