Welcome to the Sugar Leash!

The 12 Week Sugar Shut Down Home Course

-A radical approach to sugar addiction- 


Hi there! We are Kirtley Freckleton and Renny Grames, the co-founders of The Sugar Leash.


We are health coaches who are passionate about helping others live a full and abundant life that does not rely on dessert. Like so many, we have both struggled with sugar addiction, lost weight and gained mental clarity through maintaining a balanced approach to eating sugar.

Kirtley is an RN, horse and animal enthusiast and loves helping people lose weight and gain emotional confidence! Renny is an actress and fitness model and loves sharing how she stays fit for film and photoshoots. We both work health coach people one on one as well as group coach The Sugar Leash.

We have developed The Sugar Leash to help you break free from sugar through listening to your body as well as actually dealing with your emotions instead of turning to sugar.

We have found health and vitality through maintaining this balanced approach! We eat sugar when we want to, the difference is: we don’t really want to eat it anymore!

What People Are Saying About The Sugar Leash

"I loved doing Kirtley and Renny's Sugar Shut Down Program. As I was doing the program I thought to myself, "I can do dieting, but this, THIS is different!" Simply abstaining from sugar and using will power to "go off sugar" for certain periods of time is what I had done over and over in the past, but I never felt like I was in control, rather, I felt like sugar was controlling me. This program put a TON of tools in my toolbox to fight cravings and shut down false perceptions about food, but more importantly I felt connected to my body, I trusted myself, and I came to know myself on a deeper level. Connecting with myself on that level was in some ways harder than just "going on a diet" but made all the difference in wanting to continuously love and honor my body by eating healthy food!"

- Rachel D.

"My health has improved so much that it was indeed noticeable! My friends invited me out for DQ, I didn't want the DQ, but I did want the girl time. I went full. Ordered water. My friends didn't care I wasn't eating ice cream but thanked me for spending time with them anyway (which made clarified it is the relationships that are more important than the event). I went home filling filled not full. No desire and no guilt. It was a huge success! Being mindful and making choices and being ok with your choices is huge!!! This is a great program!"

- Jennifer W.

"I have loved this program because it has taught me how to mindfully eat. It taught me that sometimes it's ok to have a little sugar, as long as I listen to my body. This program not only taught me how to deal with sugar, but with all unhealthy food in my life. I now am able to make better choices in all areas of my eating and really think about what my body wants and listen to it! I would definitely recommend this program to family and friends who were wanting to gain better eating habits!"

- Megan P.

When does it start?

Tuesday, September 5th and goes for 12 weeks, or three months.

Can I eat fruit, and drink alcohol and coffee?

Yes you can eat fruit--that's a great substitute from sugar. In the first month we challenge you to consume no more than 25 grams of sugar per day. So with alcohol and coffee you get to choose how much you consume. Just remember that you crave what you eat. If you keep your taste buds used to sugar you will continue to crave it and it will always be hard. We would encourage you to to drink coffee black and hold off drinking alcohol at least by the 3rd month so you can at least know what it's like to be off of sugar. It's more about you learning about your body as you go. 

Do I have to go 100% off of sugar?

You decide! By the 3rd month we encourage everyone to try that, but this program is more of a learning process to understand how you work.  It's not about perfection, it's about progress

Where will I find the modules?

You will have a login at www.thesugarleash.com and have access to the course!

Is this a meal plan?

No. We are not giving you a meal plan but empowering you to learn how to meal plan. We want to make sure you learn essential skills so you can stay off sugar long term, and learning how to make healthy meals will be essential. We do offer you some recipes however to help you with meal planning.

How much time will it take each day/week?

We encourage you to commit at least 10 minutes a day if you really want to get something out of this. Each week we will have assignments or videos to watch to help you learn and grow.

Will I lose weight?

Although we offer no guarantees, you will be learning all the essential steps to weight loss through this program. Losing weight is often a byproduct of living a healthy lifestyle with awareness, especially when it comes to emotional eating.

What happens after the 3 months are over?

You will have unlimited access to the member portal, so you will be able to "re-do" this course whenever you choose!

How long are the weekly modules?

They vary in length. Each video is about 5-10 minutes long, although some may be longer. We also included bonus videos, so each week you'll have plenty of content to keep you motivated! 

What if my spouse/partner isn't support of going off sugar?

It's tough when your spouse or other family members don't share similar goals, especially if they want to keep sugar in the house.  Ask if you can compromise by putting the sugar out of sight and keeping it at work instead of in the house. Treat the whole situation with love instead of force. People make changes as others treat them with love and are a good example of health.

What else do I have to buy after I buy this program?

We will give you a list of suggested sugar substitutes to buy, that's all. 

Can I do this even if I am pregnant or nursing?

Yes you can! You don't need sugar to nurse or grow a baby!

What if I have medical conditions?

Every program should advise you to check with your physician before making any significant changes to your eating and exercise plan. While we don't tell you what to.

What if I already eat super healthy, will this still help?

Yes! Part of healthy eating is learning how to deal with your emotions, love yourself and listen to your body cues. Plus you may not be aware of the hidden sugars you're consuming--it will be fun for you t see that.
