How I ditched diets and got thinner

How I ditched diets and got thinner

Way back when, before the I Quit Sugar movement (hi Sarah!), before Paleo and Keto (I've never tried either), I gave up sugar. It was a shock for me because I was a total lolly and chocolate girl. Red frogs, pineapples, chicos - Allens was my party friend and I wasn't ashamed of it at all. Then my naturopath advised me to give up sugar while I was trying to get pregnant, because it can do a number of things to your insides that put some systems out of whack which can inhibit conception. So after years of yo yo dieting and...

Our Fashion Week collab: We Are Kindred X Recreation
