This is a long post, so if you don't like stories,  bit just want to vote, feel free to scroll to the bottom.

Some of you may remember Amanda the Avatar, the new face you chose for 'Stronger Without Sugar'. You may be wondering what's been going on with her.

Well, as you know, Amanda is a teacher and she's been hard at it getting to know her new class and managing their needs and the demands of the curriculum. 
She's been chasing the sunshine to get in outdoor tennis while it's still possible,  and she's been having a great time with her boyfriend. She does a 50-mile round trip to be with him at weekends. 
As a result, she's feeling knackered. Frankly,  half term can't come soon enough.  And, although she's excited about directing the Christmas play, she doesn't know how she'll manage. She thinks her skin's lost its glow too. Even though she's tired she's not sleeping so well, and she's becoming very moody.

So, she's raring to go with 'Stronger Without Sugar', but there's a problem. 
Amanda had a girl's night out with friends last week.  She noticed one of them was becoming rather obsessive around food, saying that carbs were 'evil' and refusing to eat a strawberry 'because it's full of sugar'. Amanda isn't comfortable with that sort of behaviour and doesn't want to be like that. Neither of us think its healthy.

We've talked about how 'Stronger Without Sugar' is about low-carb eating for the purposes of increasing energy and supporting mood and sleep. And we know the course delivers results.  But we don't want to demonize any food, or give others a platform for doing so.

So, we wondered if a change of name might be in order. We'd love you to help us decide. Which of these, if any,  do you feel reflects our message best?

A. Excess to Success: less sugar, more energy
B. Kick the sugar habit, kick start your energy 
C: Eat your way to more energy 
D: Keep 'Stronger Without Sugar'. It's fine as it is.
E: Something else

Feel free to make suggestions.  After all, it was a client who devised the name 'Stronger Without Sugar ', which has served me well.

PS: for the avoidance of doubt Amanda is a fictional character.  But I'm 100% real.

The votes are in, and I'm delighted to announce that Amanda won by a considerable margin, and will be the new cover girl for 'Stronger Without Sugar'. If you were a fan of Belle or Clara, you'll meet them if you take the course, along with their new friends Deana and Emily. Your feedback has given me lots of ideas so thank you to everyone who voted.

Let me tell you a bit about Amanda.  She's a positive,  practical person with a can-do attitude. Her life is busy and action-packed. She loves her work as a primary school teacher, and volunteering at weekends.  For fun, she enjoys tennis, salsa dancing and amateur dramatics.  She has a great boyfriend. 
Amanda struggles to find enough energy to do all the things she loves and frequently feels worn out at the end of the week. She finds herself picking up frequent colds from the children in school and it annoys her. She doesn't want to spend any more time in bed than she has to - except for doing that fun thing that often happens in bed!

Amanda has experienced body shaming, both in her family and at the doctor's and she's sick of it. She really wants to be able to talk about health on her own terms and be in an environment where size is not equated with worth.

Amanda would like some friendly advice to boost her energy. It needs to be simple because she's so busy, and needs to be suitable for someone who isn't at home all the time. That's why 'Stronger Without Sugar' is right for her. 
As a face of 'Stronger Without Sugar' Amanda will be helping with positive thoughts and keeping it real.

Are you an Amanda who would benefit from 'Stronger Without Sugar', or do you know her? Can you intoduce me.

A - I'm an Amanda - tell me more!
B - I know someone just like Amanda.  I'll introduce you.
C - I haven't met Amanda yet, but I'll keep my eyes open.
