A holistic approach to The Good Life.

The FREE step-by-step email course that preps you for low carb success!


Deep down, you know you need to lose weight, but you don’t know where to start. 

Let me guess—you've tried to drop those pounds before, but confusion about what to eat, temptations, and lack of results for your efforts nipped that all in the bud long before you got a chance to strut your stuff.

Facing the task of losing weight can spark feelings of fear, overwhelm, dread, anxiety, and even defeat...and this is all before you've even started a lifestyle change.

If you're anything like I was, when it came to getting in shape, you rinsed, repeated, and hoped for the best as you tried plan after plan, searching for one you could stick to.

There’s a lot that goes into changing your habits, but it doesn’t have to be intimidating or scary.


is a FREE 7-day email course that will help you get everything set up the right way from Day One.

Over the course of one week, REFUSE TO FAIL will give you the tools you need to make lasting lifestyle changes and see results fast. It's not unusual for participants to lose up to 5 lbs (or more!) in their first week following the lessons in the course.

I have never seen quick results like this:

"I've always struggled with healthy eating and weight loss.  After having my first child and gaining 60 lbs, I had trouble losing the extra weight.  I decided to try keto, although I was very nervous of the idea of eating a high fat diet.  Diving in using Candace's tools, the weight immediately started to drop off.  Initially, I just knew I was going to gain weight from eating so much fat. I was wrong, and I lost 10 lbs in less than 3 weeks!  I have never seen quick results like this in my years of dieting and exercise."

When I first started eating this way a few years ago, I dreaded giving up my morning bowl of cereal and my daily sandwich. But then, I started eating bacon and eggs for breakfast instead. For lunch? Chicken thighs with melted cheese. After awhile, I was like...who the hell needs cereal?

I'll admit—in those first few days I was glued to the scale every morning in fear that despite giving up carbs, the number would creep up. I mean come on...I was putting cheese on everything!

But, to my surprise, the scale continued to go down a little more each time, and it stayed down. After awhile, weighing myself went from a task I dreaded to something that made me jump out of bed each morning! And from then on, I never looked back.

Give REFUSE TO FAIL a try and see if it doesn't change your mind about what it feels like to be "on a diet." You owe it to yourself!


This is the first time i've seen my abs in years:

"I've always been a pretty fit guy...I love being active and have played sports since I was a kid. Maintaining a six-pack used to be effortless when I was in college, but as I got older and settled into corporate life, my abs slowly started to disappear despite working out regularly. Candace set me up on a high fat, low carb diet, and with her guidance, I dropped the extra layer of fat I'd been carrying for years.  My six-pack was back, and it was so easy!"

You feel helpless in your attempts to lose weight, and you’re tired of giving up

You suspect the processed and fast foods you’ve been eating are making you feel bad (spoiler alert: they are) and you’re ready to take charge of your health

You’ve tried low carb before but couldn’t maintain it, and you want to do it the right way this time around

You could use the accountability of a few friends (and a certified health coach!) to help you make changes that stick

Frequently Asked Questions


+ How does the email course work?

It's pretty simple: Sign up for the course by clicking the "enroll now" button. After you confirm your subscription in your email, you'll receive an email from me each day with that day's lesson.

Take some time to read the emails, absorb the info, and do the action items, if there is one. Don't worry—I won't be checking your homework! The action items are there for you to help reinforce the lesson or move your progress forward.

Easy peasy!

+ How long is the course?

REFUSE TO FAIL is a 7-day course, meaning you'll receive an email lesson each day for the next seven days, beginning the day after you sign up.

+ How did you learn the info you're teaching in this course?

Good question! While a lot of the info I learned at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition from teachers such as Dr. Mark Hyman and Dr. Mehmet Oz, I learned even more through three years of burying myself in research from low carb/keto experts like Jimmy Moore, Dr. Atkins, Loren Cordain, and Nina Teicholz.

But where I learned the information and techniques contained in REFUSE TO FAIL the most? My own experimentation! After switching to a ketogenic diet, I lost (and kept off!) 40 lbs and dropped 10% body fat, all while maintaining the energy to train for and complete two half century (50 mile) bike rides, in addition to the big 1-0-0. I'd say I know my stuff!

+ If the course is so good, why is it free?

I still remember feeling helpless each time I stepped on the scale and the numbers would go up despite my best efforts. I remember eating whole grains, egg whites, and low fat foods, but seeing little to no progress, and not understanding why.

I don't want you to have that feeling! Knowledge is power, and good health is a right, not a privilege. REFUSE TO FAIL is my gift to anyone who wants it to help point them down the path to a body and life they love.


So who is The Glow Getter, anyway? 


Hi! I'm Candace, aka The Glow Getter. While studying for my holistic health coach certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I stumbled across la vida low carb and used it to get rid of an extra, oh, FORTY or so lbs I had been carrying around. Two years later, it's still off! These days, I use my nutrition education and my personal experience to spread the gospel of low carb to people who want to get fit with fat and get in the best shape of their lives. People like you!

Oh, and I'm also a certified Spinning® and Insanity® Live instructor, and I LOVE cheese. Just throwing it out there.
