179: Annica Strandberg-Schmidt - Sugar Addiction Almost Led To Suicide

Annica Strandberg-Schmidt

 Annica Strandberg-Schmidt is a sugar addiction therapist, HMA®️ certified and SUGAR ®licensed/certified by Bitten Jonsson. She is an author, instructor in Conscious Breathing, certified in Relapse Prevention Therapy by Cenaps Corporation and has a YouTube channel where you can find inspiration and knowledge. Annica is a tutor in Bitten Jonsson’s SUGAR training.

Annica specialises in children and sugar. She has released a book called “Små Sockerbomber och Vuxna Barn” (transl. “Small Sugarbombs and Adult Children”) where she teaches about sugar addiction and gives hands on advice on how to make changes related to food together with your children and being a parent and recovering sugar addict. Her hope is to provide support for parents so they can make the change they themselves are ready to do and find ways to support young people who want to make changes and live a healthy life.



I live on a dairy farm in the western part of Sweden together with my husband and children. I am passionate about teaching about good food and the way we produce it. Meat is not a burden to our planet!

I have a lot of experience working with children and parents related to sugar addiction and have been working in the field since 2010.

I have a recovery story of my own and as I started my journey in 2006, my children were small, which made me do all the research on children and sugar, food, parenting and recovery that ended up with me writing the book. (The book is only avaliable in Swedish, so far) My children were born in 2002, 2004 and 2009 and only the youngest still lives at home.

I have a firsthand knowledge of how a LCHF and keto lifestyle can cure deep depression and how removing sugar, flour, sweeteners and carbs can make your spirit soar and your body and brain healthy, functioning, strong and thriving on your right fuel mix!

I have experience from guiding approximately 400 clients with making Food Plans, Biochemical Repair, Relapse Prevention, Recovery plans and Motivational sessions.
