The Eating Coach

Oct 24, 2018

"The fact that I wasn't depressed anymore was to me the most amazing thing". In this week's show, we hear from Joan Sotkin about how giving up sugar changed her life. This is a fascinating story you won't want to miss. A suicidal depressive and valium addict until she gave up sugar, she ignored her doctor's  ignorance ("Joan, you're just a hypochondriac"), took matters into her own hands and made him give her a glucose tolerance test.


*Stupid Idea of The Week* the idea that changing the language of the diet industry with no mindshifting makes any difference whatsoever to the misery it is inflicting on millions.
