Sugar ~The Addiction Most of Us Have, but Choose to Ignore!

by Louise Crooks

Well, let me raise my hand right now and say I am a culprit! Especially recently. I find once I feed that sweet tooth, it goes on unabated.

I’ve recognised when I moved to the US 7 years ago, that everything had sugar in it, even the bread. It was a bit of a shock to my poor body, and immediately I started putting on weight. Eventually our taste buds adjust, but of course thats not always a good thing, when you want to avoid eating something like sugar.

I probably don’t need to spell out to you, what you already know! …That obesity is one of the main causes of death in the US, and leads to diabetes, heart failure and so on. And the kids… well don’t get me started.

Its up to us to educate ourselves and pass that information on to the next generation and our clients. And, if we make a big enough noise, which thankfully is starting to happen, we can get corporations and school canteens to sit up and pay attention to the well being of our society.  I love what Jamie Oliver is doing in the school systems here and in the UK!

From a spiritual stand point, we are damaging the vessel that houses our spirit in this current life time. When we consider the body the temple that houses our spirit, being aware of how we are treating that temple, puts a different spin on it. So lets take a step to honor our ‘temple’.

One such person, who is doing just that, and who’s taking a stand about the danger of sugar and our country-wide addiction to it, is Connie Bennett, author of Sugar Shock. Interviewed together with contributing author of Sugar Shock Dr Stephen Sinatra on Oprah & Friends, Dr Mehmet Oz said “Connie’s work spills the beans on the shocking impact of simple carbohydrates on aging and quality of life—a double whammy for humanity.” You can listen to this interview on at your leisure.

I am excited to have her join me as our guest on KtC Radio this week, to discuss the hidden culprits of sugar, what its doing to us, and how to break the sugar habit and  make changes to support ourselves and our families.

Take a stand and get the low down about what’s going into your body without you even realising it! And if you or someone you know would like to share an experience with sugar addiction on this show, please call in on the number below during the show.
