Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas…all three holidays revolve around sugar. Sugar is bitter-sweet. Sure, it tastes good, but what it does to your brain and your body is sickening, literally.
Sugar is an addictive substance that is linked to various types of disease, including weight loss resistance, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and more. Why? Because it single handedly drives inflammation in the body, throwing off your hormones, and wreaks havoc on nearly every system in your body.
The average American is consuming 130 pounds of sugar a year. This is 26x more than our ancestors did a hundred years ago. You may be thinking that you only eat sweets occasionally. But sugar hides in 74% of packaged food. What’s more, bread, rice, pasta, and cereal have the same effect on your body as sugar, contributing to the problem.
Want to know why you should quit sugar? Want to learn how to stop eating it? Then you’ll need to tune in this week’s episode.
