TL Matthew is the founder and CEO of SumFoods™. She is a Certified Nutritional Therapist with lifestyle medicine expertise. As someone who was borderline prediabetic and who grew up in the midst of a diabetic family and saw many of her loved ones perish due to complications of diabetes brought on by both high sugar and high carbs.
TL is particularly passionate about helping others make sustainable lifestyle changes to improve their health and well-being.
She’s a diabetes advocate, public speaker, and author of the book – Spilling the Tea on Sugar.
TL’s inspiration to develop SumSweet+™ came from her desire to quit sugar and lose weight. Being overweight addicted to sugar and borderline prediabetic was the proponent. TL’s daily diet had consisted of mostly sugar-filled foods and other simple carbs. From barbeque sauce to pasta with sauce, and everything in between. She started a low-carb diet to lose weight and improve her health, but nothing helped the sweet tooth she regularly experienced. So, she set out to develop something to alleviate her problem and, along the way, discovered she developed a sweetener that would help others too.
And by the way, she lost 45 pounds and has kept it off til now. To read more about her ice cream and weight loss story, click here.
