Sugar – The addictive drug!
I have thought for some time that sugar is an
addictive poison if eaten in large quantities.
These thoughts and feelings have finally been confirmed
and the situation is much worse than I initially thought! If you are overweight or obese and you have not seen “That Sugar Film” you must, you will learn so much about the damage that sugar does to the body it will hopefully spin you into action. Even if you don’t have a weight problem it is still a must see documentary, you will learn so much about health and well being which will set you up for life. You will be able to make an informed decision as to what not to feed your children and family. Then go out and buy the book “That Sugar Book” and keep it as a permanent reference it is that good!
David Gillespie says in the foreword and I quote:-
“The research was clear sugar also destroys our teeth, our gut lining, our liver, our pancreas, our kidneys and our heart. And the damage didn’t stop there, it was increasingly clear that sugar could destroy our state of mind as well. The research tells us that consuming sugar, even in moderation (a phrase invented by the food industry to give you license to eat as much as you like), is likely the cause of the modern epidemic of anxiety and depression.”
We know so much more today, more and more health and nutrition experts are convinced sugar is the problem in our modern diets but we are still led to believe it is fat. But you make up your own mind, check out low fat and light dairy products only to find they are
higher in sugar. Because when they remove the fat they need to
replace the flavour, hence these products are higher in sugar.
Kathleen Desmaisons author of The Sugar Addict’s Total Recovery Program said and I quote:- “ Sugar isn’t evil, but life is just so much better when you get rid of it”
We need to understand that sugar is a preservative hence it is in a lot of our pre-prepared foods or packaged foods.
These sugars are disguised with many different names, we refer to these as the ‘Hidden Sugars’ so if you want to lose weight it is best to go for fresh and raw foods.
