We all know that sugar is bad, but many of us are in the dark about the actual effects it has on the body.

  • Make you fat.
  • Age your cells faster.
  • Slow down your brain.
  • Can lead to leptin resistance. Leptin is the hormone that tells you when you’re full.
  • Can be as toxic to the liver as alcohol.

Over the past year I’ve been suggesting new ways to eat to my friends. What I’ve come to learn is that quite a few people do not have the willingness to change even though they know that they must. Old habits die hard. The most common resistance is the belief that choosing to consistently eat healthier is a tradeoff to taste, and a sacrifice of comfort food.

The first objection is completely false. Eating right SHOULD always taste good. I don’t believe in “diets” where people switch from eating like crap and then detoxing like crazy to somehow make up for poor eating habits.
