Memorable Quotes

“When you stop eating sugar, you’re going to go through an opiate withdrawal that is going to last a couple of days, but then you’re going to feel better, right? Energy comes up, the first couple of days you might feel grouchy and moody, but as you come off of all that sugar, you’re going to feel so much better.” – Betty Murray

“Make the decision to break up with sugar because it’s like a bad boyfriend that shows up, gaslights you, and then leaves every night, leaves you crying on the couch. You no longer want sugar in your life.” – Betty Murray
