With 18 percent of the American diet coming from added sugar, sugar addiction is becoming the rule rather than the exception in this country.
In fact, many people eat their weight in sugar every year, which may explain why they’re tired, achy, "brain fogged," anxious, and unable to lose weight.
Cutting back on sugar not only lowers the risk of diabetes, hypertension, stroke, and heart attacks — the major killers in modern life ― it also helps fight many other medical conditions. Plus, it boosts your metabolism, making it easier to lose weight.
But for most people, trying to cut out sugar doesn’t work.
Besides, who wants to cut out the things that give them pleasure?
To beat sugar addiction, you need to identify what type of addict you are and then follow a step-by-step treatment approach for your specific type.
My new book, “Beat Sugar Addiction Now!” teaches how to do this in a way that makes it easier to change from a sugar-laden to a low-sugar diet without sacrificing the pleasures of eating.
Using simple quizzes, it shows you which type of sugar addict you are and how to get well. This includes natural therapies and simple lifestyle changes, as well as directions for your inner journey ― which will not only heal your body but also your mind and spirit, and change your life.
Type 1: Hooked on "Energy Loan Shark" Drinks ― Chronically exhausted and hooked on caffeine and sugar. When daily fatigue causes sugar (and caffeine) cravings, sometimes all you need is to improve nutrition, sleep, and exercise.
Type 2: Feed Me Now or I’ll Kill You ― When life’s stress has exhausted your adrenal glands. If you get irritable when you’re hungry and crash under stress, it’s important to treat adrenal exhaustion.
Type 3: The Happy Twinkie Hunter ― Sugar cravings caused by yeast/Candida overgrowth. If you have chronic nasal congestion, sinusitis, spastic colon, or irritable bowel syndrome, treating yeast overgrowth is critical.
Type 4: Depressed and Craving Carbs ― Sugar cravings caused by your period, menopause, or andropause. Standard blood testing for hormonal deficiencies will not reveal the problems until they are very severe, sometimes leaving people deficient for decades.
