Those who have a separate ‘sweet compartment’ in their stomach.
And those who don’t.
Have you ever heard of a sweet compartment?

It means that no matter how stuffed you are from eating your dinner….
You always have room for something sweet!
That’s what I call the separate sweet compartment.
Me and my daughter have a sweet compartment, but my husband and son do not.
No matter how much my son wants that cake, he will say his tummy hurts and he will leave it on his plate.
But me and my daughter will wolf it down, and we could probably eat another 10 cakes if we allowed ourselves to.
Do you have a sweet compartment?
When you have a sweet compartment, you are often the type of person who needs to finish off each meal with something sweet.
But if you’re trying to lose weight, eating sweet food, especially when you’re not hungry can lead to weight gain.
So what should you do?
Here are some of the things that I do to satisfy my sweet compartment after I’ve finished off a big meal, but I still want that extra sweet thing.
- Have a piece of natural chewing gum: This is the best strategy for weight loss. This is my favourite natural chewing gum (click here to see)
- Have a drink of a sweet drink. I sometimes add a small amount of fruit juice or a few drops of orange or lemon essential oil to a glass of sparkling water. This is sometimes just enough sweetness to satisfy my sweet compartment.
- Have a very small treat. Sometimes, at the weekend I might have a small dairy free cake or a small packet of dairy free chocolate buttons.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
