Sugar Addicts | Weight Loss and the Mind | Podcast #127
Despite the endless health campaigns to encourage us to cut back, sugar still makes up a third of our calorie intake. This is deeply worrying, say experts, who are increasingly concerned that our bodies were not designed to take such a sugar overload, and fear it is contributing to many modern ills, including diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
The problem is that sugar is highly addictive, as study after study has shown. Just last week researchers at Yale University revealed that dramatic falls in blood sugar, which occur after eating "bad" carbohydrates such as sweets and biscuits, affect the part of the brain controlling impulse. This leads to a loss of self control and a subsequent craving for more unhealthy, high-calorie foods.
Mia St-Aubin and Scott Paton share their secrets for losing weight the healthy way. Mia is the 2012 Visalus Cover Model.
