Welcome to The Healthy Me episode number 035… I’m Trina Felber, Registered Nurse and CEO of Primal Life Organics.
Today on the show we have JJ Virgin, a celebrity nutrition and fitness expert. She is a four-time New York Times best-selling author who helps people over the age of forty lose the weight and keep it off.
Today, we’re talking about sugar and common diet misconceptions.
JJ’s favorite myth to squash is that all foods are created equal and that it’s all about calories in and calories out. Not the case.
She says, “Your body isn’t a bank account, it’s a chemistry lab.”
And sugar impacts your body – your personal chemistry experiment – differently, and this includes products made with fructose that are advertised as having a low glycemic index.
Nowadays, sugar seems to sneak itself into everything from yogurt to salad dressing. And sugar addiction is a real thing. The first step to kick the habit is to taper your diet, read labels, and recognize where sugar is hiding. Then, fill your diet with protein, healthy fats and fiber to stabilize your blood sugars and start accessing stored fat for fuel.
JJ’s book, “The Sugar Impact Diet,” shares her groundbreaking program that will revolutionize the way you think about sugar. You’ll drop fat fast–up to 10 pounds in just two weeks – and feel more energized and alive.
Today I empower you to examine your foods and see where sugar is hiding!
