My Story

“I was sick, obese, tired and wanted to die. That all changed when I got off sugar.”
Hi, I’m Sherry and although my last name is Strong for a good part of my life I felt anything but strong.
For most of my life sugar was my kryptonite and what made it worse than Superman’s kryptonite is that I was totally addicted to it and found it impossible to avoid. I thought sugar was stronger than I was. I was wrong.
Through much research, trial and error, I discovered that I was stronger than sugar and by breaking free from sugar’s hold, I got my life back. My energy increased dramatically, I slept better, my migraines and back pain, went away, I could think more clearly, smiled a whole lot more and went from a size 16 to a size 6 and have kept it off for almost 20 years.
“Sugar is a drug, getting off of it requires a strategy, not a diet.”
I’m the kind of person who could not follow a diet to save my life and managed to do all of this without dieting or depriving myself which is why I’m so excited to share my philosophies and strategies with you.
For over 20 years I’ve been developing and teaching these strategies to help thousands of people get off of sugar and processed foods to break the hold it has on them. I know if a serious sugar addict like me can do it, you can too.
“Sherry gets that I have an extremely active and busy life that doesn’t fit into a cookie cutter quick x prescriptive approach. She tailors her work to suit my life. Her concepts and philosophies make complex and conflicting information make sense so I can apply her practical wisdom into my way of doing life.”

What in the world is a food philosopher??

People are drowning in conflicting nutritional information flooding the internet and media. The result is people running in all directions uncertain of what to do and who to follow.
Sherry has developed philosophies that cut through nutritional confusion which she herself experienced holding positions of responsibility in nutrition and health. She knew there had to be a way of relating to food that just made sense. And that is the most common piece of feedback she gets about her philosophies. ‘They just make sense’ and that is because they are rooted in nature, science and the living history of the most successful healthy cultures on earth.
The philosophies and strategies Sherry has developed over 25 years working with people in food and nutrition, will help you understand and intuit what your body needs. Her philosophies combine the power of working with our intellect, intuition, psychology, and physiology to know what it is our bodies really need to eat to thrive as well as enjoy the gifts of food.

Australia’s Most In Demand Female Speaker says this about Sherry;

I saw Sherry Strong present for the first time. Man…she is great! The delegates also loved her. She should be included in every conference where there is an emphasis on health and well-being. The audience hung on every word about nutrition. She has such great content re the C-AP we are eating and I’m sure she changed peoples’ behaviour that day. Her style is very natural and being Canadian she understands the Australian sense of humour and had a lot of fun with the audience. I saw a demonstration cooking segment with a member of the audience and then her keynote. Lots of sound info, excellent credentials, great props and support material…very engaging.

Event Organizers Testimonials

It’s difficult to sum up the Sweet Freedom Online Program in just a few sentences because it has been so life changing for me! I’m 62 years old and have tried many weight loss programs and stopping sugar programs with no lasting result. However with this program I’ve truly found freedom! Upon starting the program I had no confidence that I could give up processed sugar but I decided to commit to attending the meetings and doing the homework. I heard principles in this program that I never heard before and that I can follow for life not just until the program is over. I also appreciate the honest and loving manner in which the program is presented. I’m so happy, I could just shout!!
