I was addicted to Chocolate.
I couldn’t stop eating Chocolate and I made excuses to myself that the chocolate I bought was for my clients.
I would throw it in the trunk of my car before I went on on sales appointments. Then I’d get the urge for chocolate, pull over to the side of the road, and grab a little morsel of chocolate before I reached my destination.
Yes! Chocolate would call me by name. It said, “Kathryn, come eat me”.
I happily complied, until . . . I couldn’t zip up my pants; they were so tight, fat was bulging at my belly and the caffeine from the chocolate was keeping me from sleeping through the night.
Something had to give!
I was super low in magnesium and I had Candida Overgrowth. Candida is a fungus. We need a bit of candida in our guts for digestion. Unfortunately, when Candida is overgrown, it wants to party on its favorite food: sugar. The candida caused more bloat and brain fog.
This was a vicious cycle!
My body was crying out for more magnesium and begging me to stop eating so much sugar. Over time, I finally said, “Enough is Enough”!
Instead of eating processed packaged chocolate, I found a new delicious substitute, loaded with magnesium and all the nutrients I needed to truly satisfy my tummy and my taste buds.
