Despite all of the marketing hype, stevia is not the innocent little herb it is made out to be—and it is not harmless. The stevia sweetener you purchase at the store is a highly refined, purified chemical that is little different from any other artificial sweetener, with many of the same drawbacks and dangers.
The author’s observation of troubling adverse reactions associated with stevia led him on an investigation that uncovered disturbing facts hidden from the public, including studies that contradict the sweetener’s safety and assumed benefits.
In this book, you will learn why you should never use stevia if you want to lose excess weight or control diabetes. You will also learn why all low-calorie sweeteners are potentially dangerous, and what options you have available. The information in this book comes directly from published studies, historical facts, and the author’s personal experiences.
In this book you will learn that stevia
is not an herb but a highly refined chemical
acts like an artificial sweetener
can cause digestive distress
alters the gut microbiome
is a gut excitotoxin
promotes obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome
can cause allergic reactions
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty tired of the struggle. You know which one I mean—fear, loneliness, not knowing who I am or what I’m meant to do. . . . Sound familiar?
I struggled with insecurity, comparison, and isolation for too many years, from thigh gaps to eyebrows to the lifestyles I felt I had to live up to. I was so afraid of being “found out,” that everyone in my life would somehow figure out that I was fearful and small and that I struggled to make my faith a reality and to be secure in who I am. It took a major perspective shift from staring at comments on a screen to really digging into the pages of my Bible to see what God actually says about overcoming fear.
Setting aside the fear, anxiety, and comparison to become the joy-filled person God created you to be is exactly what God is inviting you into. To really be seen and known. To be an agent of change by choosing compassion, connection, and acceptance for everyone you come in contact with. Inside this book are ways to find your power, passion, and purpose—and reach for your dreams. Plus, there are places to jot down notes, fun lists, practical ways to make changes, and thoughts on how living fearless can change everything.
Are you tired of the awful comparison game? Are you exhausted from trying to keep up, from feeling small and afraid that people will find the real you and be disappointed? There is so much more for you. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what your fears are, freedom is available to you. It’s just a matter of saying yes. You in?
Hope you’ll join me on this wild adventure as we learn to Live Fearless together.
As you read along, you'll find yourself caught up in the exciting adventure of a lifetime—that of becoming a woman after God's own heart! You'll love the special "Heart Response" sections created just for you. And the practical "Things to Do Today" will help you in your desire to know and follow God.
