The course consists of short video lessons where I focus on practical information and practical steps to cutting down on sugar. In the lessons, I share with you what helped me get free from sugar addiction, as well as the steps that have helped my clients the most throughout the years.

More About the Balance36 Coaching Program

“Less Sugar” is the first in a 3-course series that I use at the beginning of my Balance36 health program, called “Foundation of Health Living”. This is the simple, but powerful program I have been working with in Stockholm, Sweden. It’s SO simple because we fix 3 key health problems that broke over the past 150 years.

Sugar – Fix the 600% increased sugar problem.
Omega 3:6 Balance – Fix the 625% difference in omega-3:6 balance.
Stress & Rest – Fix the broken stress/rest cycle.

Let me coach you through the necessary steps to get your health back!

Feedback from my clients (translated from Swedish)

Sugar cravings

“Saturday Candy” is the norm in Sweden, so it was pretty amazing when one of my clients said:
“I realized Saturday went by, and for the first time in my life I had not thought about sweets all day!” – Anne Lavold

Weight loss

“l’ve already lost 3 kg (6.6 lbs) in the first 2 weeks on the program. What I like most about this health program is that there’s no calorie counting or food weighing, but I get to pick and choose from the food guidelines and enjoy good food every day!” – Gun Karlsson

Inflammation

“I went to the doctor and did not tell him I had changed my diet, and he confirmed to me that the inflammation in my knees is gone. I’ve also lost weight while eating good food, gotten rid of my sugar cravings, and I’m not in pain anymore!” – Inger Magnusson

About our Wellness Coaching & Health Programs

Modern disease is not just sickness, but everything keeping you from 100% wellness!

It’s not just the increase in heart disease, cancer and diabetes. And not just ADHD, autism, depression, FM, MS, auto-immune … the list goes on…

It’s everything that is causing us to live far below what our bodies, minds and lives are capable of.

150 years ago it was not like this. We were not facing the same challenges that our bodies and minds are today. Statistically, it was not like this at all.

Our health coaching is based on a simple, but powerful program we developed in Stockholm, Sweden, with results that have amazed us. It is so simple because we focus on the 3 key health challenges that are dramatically different from just 150 years ago.

  1. 600% difference in sugar intake.
  2. 625% difference in omega-3:6 balance.
  3. Broken stress/rest cycle.

But together we can change that! Getting our bodies back into balance is easier than you think.

1. So much sugar!

Here in Sweden we have gone from around 10 kg (22 lbs) of added sugar per person, per year in the 1850s, to about 60 kg (130 lbs) sugar per person per year! We are eating sugar in amounts that should disgust us.

High blood sugar levels put a stress on many different systems of the body and, as we talked about earlier, these stressors that are the foundation to inflammation in the body.

Cutting down on sugar doesn’t have to be hard. Small changes in the way we eat and even in the order we eat certain foods can do a lot to get rid of the sugar cravings.

Most of our clients that go through this program are amazed that they simply are not crazing sugar anymore, especially in the evenings.

2. The omega-3:6 balance

Both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are necessary. Omega-6 causes inflammation and omega-3 decreases inflammation. We need them both in equal amounts so they can work together in our bodies, but our modern diet has forced as much as 40 times more omega-6 into our bodies than omega-3!

A balanced omega-3:6 ratio minimizes the inflammatory response your body has to toxins.

“Inflammation triggered by oxidative stress is the cause of much, perhaps even most, chronic human disease including human aging … This is especially relevant to the many pervasive chronic diseases that are still responsible for so much human suffering.”
International Journal of Inflammation, 2011. Fredric J. Pashkow, John A. Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawai‘I

Certain foods, chemicals, and even the air you breathe place a stress on your body (toxins). Most health programs are built around minimizing these toxins with diet and lifestyle changes. This is important, but getting your omega-3:6 balance closer to 1:1 is the most important change you can make as it will minimize the effect of these stressors. This doesn’t mean you ignore toxins, but you can’t afford to overlook minimizing your body’s response to toxins.

The story – How our diet has changed

Before industrialization we ate omega-6 and omega-3 fats in a ratio of roughly 1:1. 1935 in the USA, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids had already moved towards 8:1. This ratio increased to 10-12:1 in 1985. Today, it has skyrocketed up to an average of 25:1 in the USA. Here in Sweden the process has not gone as fast, with our average ratio being around 12:1.

What broke our omega-3:6 balance?

We eat less wild caught oily fish (the only significant source of the omega-3’s) and more plant oils, which are high in omega-6. Plant oils such as safflower, sunflower, soy, and corn oil are used in cooking and in processed foods because… they are cheap!

But it’s not just what we eat… most animals are now fed with grain-based diets, so now even our meat is high in omega-6. The same is true for chicken, eggs, and farm-raised fish. Fully grass-fed animals have a better omega-3:6 balance, but can be hard to find.

Can we fix our omega-3:6 balance?

Yes! And quite quickly. Simple changes make a huge difference!

3. Less stress.

Once we have dealt with sugar, one of the major stressors, the omega-3:6 key, which regulates our body’s response to them; we now have one step left to go. Stress. Stress is one area that if we don’t learn to get control over it, we never will be truly well, even if we eat perfectly.

Managing stress doesn’t have to be difficult either. The Balance36 program will not only give you simple practical suggestions on how you can break the stress cycle and take back control, but even help you make simple diet changes to fight back on stress and truly be able to REST.

Who are You?

Everyone has a story. Our stories are what color in the details of who we are and how we show up to the world around us, and how we engage with it/them: relationships, jobs, schools, etc. We were all intentionally and intelligently designed to be unique individuals.  When we discover who we are, where we came from, and what we were designed for in this lifetime, we find the freedom in seeing ourselves in our truest identity.  It is in this freedom, our personal story can be expressed organically and experienced by others.

The messages of our stories are often communicated and translated through the ways we impact and interact with the people we are privileged to have in our lives— whether for a short while, or for a lifetime. When we discover who we are and the purpose we were uniquely designed to fulfill, we begin to not only value ourselves, we also begin to value others around us at the same capacity of which we value ourselves. Our intentions, interactions, and impact become more authentic, vulnerable, and hold a greater potential to add life changing value to the lives we are privileged to be a part of.

So how do we begin to discover who we are at our core and what we were designed to live for? Awareness is the first step. Taking an inventory of our character, our morals, our values, our tendencies, patterns, feelings, passions, attitudes, relationships can be key to self discovery. These are the fruit from seeds that have been planted in the soil of our young minds from the moment we were even conceived– unconsciously. Taking a brave trip down memory lane to take a good look at where we’ve historically come from, is another key factor to self discovery. These impactful experiences, whether big or small, manifest in our idiosyncrasies. Some of which would be ideal to change, because we and others around us, deserve them to be changed.

We as humans will inevitably share similarities. The genetic and neurological composition of our individual beings however, are uniquely different. When we take a good look at who we are at our core there is a lot to discover about how intentionally and intelligently we were uniquely designed to be, and the life we were destined to uniquely live; serving the world around us at different capacities and various ways.

Here are some questions to ask yourself…
1. Who are you?
2. Where did you come from?
3. What were your designed for here on earth?
4. How were you created to impact the world around you?
5. What does your unique design have, to solve a problem that exists in the community that surrounds your life?
6. When are you going to venture out into a courageous journey of fully living at your greatest potential and impacting at your optimal?
7. What or who do you need in your life, to make this happen? (I call this, resourcing up!)

Sometimes, we need someone in our corner coming alongside us through the journey of self discovery. For those interested in discovering their truest identity and the possibility of unlocking their greatest potential, connect with me! I’d be happy to be a part of that journey and see you thrive as the best version of yourself!
