You’ve heard me say it before but it bears repeating: Sugar is one of the worst things for your health –  yet it’s hiding in almost all the foods we regularly consume.

In fact the average American eats about 153 pounds of sugar every year whether they know it or not.

For reference, that’s about the size of a baby giraffe – and our health is paying the price.

But the good news is there is something you can do about it. 

On this episode, I share my best tips for kicking a sugar addiction no matter how severe.

I also expose another surprising “health enemy” – and how this health food “darling” can destroy your health. 

With the information I share on this episode, you can truly have your cake and eat it too! 

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • The hidden ingredient in most foods that is causing elevated cholesterol – and how to avoid it (2:30)
  • The damaging effects sugar has on your gut microbiome (and how to help  “preserve” your good gut bacteria) (3:05)
  • Why World War 2 SAVED peoples’ health (this is shocking) (5:00)
