BOSS isn't your average sugar detox. Find out why!
Posted by Andrea Nakayama
I’ve got good news for you. . .
And I’m eager to tell you why this news is good for you!
I’m guessing you’ve tried a “sugar detox” before.
Perhaps with a group or flying solo.
Maybe you felt good (or bad!) during the detox but whatever you were doing didn’t feel sustainable. Your old friend sugar lured you back. The muffins and mid-morning mochas returned to your routine.
Maybe you’re reluctant to try again for fear of failing.
But here’s the thing. . . BOSS isn’t your average sugar detox.
In fact, it’s NOT a sugar detox at all, or should I say alone. BOSS is about balancing your blood sugar (we do indeed remove sugar but that’s not the end game). And this is one thing that makes BOSS different.
I want you to be empowered by what’s going on inside your body and mind when those sugar cravings strike so you can truly address them.
Unfortunately, the ignition of your super powers, where you truly become the BOSS, doesn’t happen by just eliminating sugar for one week (oh, if only it were that easy!). You become the BOSS by understanding your inner workings. It happens by exploring what’s going on in your brain when you crave sugar, when you develop an awareness in yourself in relation to your blood sugar and your patterns of eating.
It’s this deeper knowledge of yourself that really allows for something that has become habitual to shift.
Whew! I think we all need a little of that kind of perspective.
In fact I’m doing the detox right along with the group and my body and mind are already feeling the benefits of tending to my blood sugar, more energy, clearer thinking, and that incredible feeling of a fresh start. (And, by the way, I haven’t eaten sugar in years, which doesn’t mean the detox isn’t appropriate for me anddoes mean I can show you how to do it too!)
It always delights me to hear why people say YES to BOSS.
Here are a few of my favorite BOSS goals for this year.
“Jump Start, Focus, Group Support and Momentum. Replenish programs always deliver all four!” – BOSS 2014 participant
“I’m most interested in learning about blood sugar. I’m no stranger to cravings and this year I finally addressed those by eliminating sugar. But, I still want to learn the physiological and bio-chemical components that drive sugar cravings because they will arise again. And I’m also interested in learning more about the cortisol and blood sugar connection since I normally wake up 1-2 times per night. I’m ready” -BOSS 2014 participant
“I’ve tried so many things to balance my blood sugar (detoxes, cleanses, education, exercise, nutrition, supplements, and teas). Nothing has worked. I feel like BOSS provides an approach that truly works since you address the how, why, and what”-BOSS 2014 participant
Does any of this ring true for you? If yes, I’ll see you on the inside!
The doors are open until midnight (pacific time) on Wednesday, June 11th
After that, I won’t offer BOSS again until 2015, and I don’t want you to miss the experience.
Become the BOSS of your blood sugar!

Although caffeine is found in over 100 plants worldwide, its effects are most potent in coffee.
