    After years of battling her weight, sugar addiction and tremendous stress, Kelly Keough had lost more than a third of her hair, causing a living nightmare to become her reality. How was she going to stick to a no-sugar, no-flour way of eating and heal her nervous system, hormonal system, digestive system, metabolism, and never eat sugar or flour again?
