Does quitting sugar heal autoimmune disease?

I am a fan of this Australian journalist and TV presenter named Sarah Wilson. She is the author of the Australian and UK best-sellers I Quit Sugar and I Quit Sugar For Life. I Quit Sugar was released in the USA and Canada April 2014 and is a New York Times best-seller.

Weight Loss Tips for Hypothyroid Moms

Weight Loss Tips for Hypothyroid Moms

“Help! How do I lose weight?”

“Am I the only one who can go to the gym 5 days a week and actually gain weight?”

Before you dive into the article, I’m excited to share that Jen is offering a digital download of her book, Amazon #1 New Release, Healing Hashimoto’s Naturally, as an exclusive FREE gift to my Hypothyroid Mom community! This offer is so popular that Jen extended it another week for us.
