Getting Started

If you are brand new and feeling overwhelmed, just do three things:

Get a copy of Potatoes not Prozac, take the online class called Using the Resources in the Community and start eating breakfast.


Once you feel braver, you can progress next to these three things:shake

First – Learn about the 7 Steps

An overview of the steps is available here on the website.
Potatoes not Prozac will help you understand the theory of sugar sensitivity and give you the big picture.
The Sugar Addict’s Total Recovery Program will give you concrete suggestions for doing the steps.

Second – Learn about our Resources

  • Sign up for our FREE weekly newsletter to read testimonials, get recipes, learn about the community and hear Kathleen’s latest thinking on topics we all love.
  • Join the FREE Community Forum, a moderated message board where folks love to share with each other. It is available 24/7 and provides a wealth of information gained and shared by people just like you. Introduce yourself, or just listen for a while. Instructions on using the forum are found in a link right at the top of the page.
  • Join a FREE online group. We have a group for everyone and everything. Go through the list and see if anything strikes your fancy. These are email lists. Each group is led by a volunteer who has been doing the program for many years. They are safe, funny and informative.
  • Take a low-cost online class taught by Kathleen DesMaisons herself. The classes cover both beginning and advanced topics.


Third – Come Visit the Store

Look around and see if there is anything you like. Most of all, ask questions. We are here to help.
