Many times I often hear different people’s perspectives on carbohydrate – mainly people expressing their hatred towards it and it being the number one public enemy. Carbohydrates are not the enemy!

I want to firstly start by wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year. Undertaking the Go Detox Juice cleanse towards the end of last year helped me to re-address my relationship with food and helped me to get rid of my sweet craving. Yes, I do have an odd sweet here and there; particularly during my menstrual cycle. However, I would go as far as describing myself as a sweet addict.

I turned to sweets because I struggled with the continuous bitter mouth that I had to endure each day. However, as I began to develop my understanding of sugary food and drinks; it became apparent to me that it was these such things that were attributing to the bitter taste I was struggling to shake.
