Her site shares an endless amount of recipes that are healthier, and as the title suggests, gluten-free and refined sugar free, yet still fabulous and delicious.
On her site, Amy shares her story of becoming an expert dieter, trying every program on the market to lose weight. In the late 90’s she shared that she was over 180 pounds. Here she gives a snippet of her experience with yet another diet.
It did, for a while. Once I hit the three week mark, I started eating the other meals and I was back where I started, eating too much, eating at the wrong times, having huge, uncontrollable food cravings. I gave in. I always did. I didn’t have the awareness then, but all of the \”Fat Flush\” recipes were free of sugar, flour, and gluten.
After years and yo-yo dieting, Amy found a way to create her own recipes that were made from non-refined sugars and gluten-free. It has become a way of life for her. And if you see her progression of before and after pictures on her site, it will likely make you stop and think about the foods you eat and how it is effecting your body.
