I remember how awful I used to feel when I was in the grips of sugar addiction. As a new mum I felt like I was chasing my tail all day and had to grab any convenient snacks I could to keep going - usually cake or biscuits.
I appreciate entirely what it feels like to want to lose weight, have loads of energy and be in a good mood like everyone else seems to be, but be clueless about what it is you're doing 'wrong'. You look online there's so much information and it all involves eating way too much salad and veg.

I'm a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist and mum of two. I've spent around ten years studying nutritional science - through trial and error and formal study. I lost all my excess baby weight after baby #2 almost instantly, whilst eating healthily and most definitely not starving myself ... I love to eat as much as the next person.
But it hasn't always been that way. With baby #1 I can paint a very different picture ...
I'd had antibiotic treatment after the birth and my weight ballooned.
I felt exhausted, spaced out and had huge energy dips throughout the day.
I really thought I did eat healthily, and I thought that feeling this way was normal after having a baby. Let me tell you - it doesn't have to be!
Now I'm 2-3 dress sizes smaller than I was 10 years ago, I have loads more energy and I definitely don't spend hours in the kitchen - my talents lie in getting healthy, nutritionally balanced and filling meals to the table double-quick.
