Why Losing Weight Ain't Easy (Sugar Is The Enemy)

I have researched different eating and exercise programs for over 5 years. I haven't read about a comparison between sugar and tobacco until just recently. A well-respected holistic health doctor wrote an article comparing the negative health effects of sugar to those of tobacco. Wow! Interesting . . . 

Sugar As An Addiction
We all know that smoking causes diseases ranging from lung and throat cancer to heart disease. The nicotine in tobacco is highly addictive. If you've ever tried to stop smoking using sheer willpower, you know all about the craving for nicotine.

Sugar addiction is equally hard to conquer. And lately, it's clear that sugar, a major contributor to diabetes and obesity, ranks near tobacco as a major cause of death. 

Note that there are no warnings on the six-packs of cola that tell you the near 40 grams of sugar in one can is more than twice the daily amount recommended for good health.

We are so used to an excessive amount of sugar in our diet that we don't even think about it. Yet it is sugar that is the major cause of obesity.

Look around you at the next major gathering of people that you attend. I was in a sports arena recently. I was amazed at the number of people having problems fitting in the seats because they were too fat to fit easily.

What were these people consuming during the game? Food and drink full of sugar. One of the most popular food booths sold sno cones (shaved ice covered with flavored sugar water).

The First Step
Awareness is the first step to addressing the sugar epidemic. This is not one of the health field's false alarms or misrepresentation of the facts. 

This is a real, live, everyday problem.

Our health education must include information about the dangers of daily consumption of large amounts of sugar. A brief look at the sugar content of most processed foods turns out to be an education in itself.

Sugar Restriction
Restrict sugar in the average person's diet and the weight melts off magically. 

In fact, I wrote a free ebook showing you How To Lose 20 Pounds In One Month using sugar/carb restriction. Click HERE to get this ebook free of charge.

But some people have a sugar addiction (unfortunately, that includes me), so when they restrict sugar, they become like smokers craving nicotine. 

Just one more piece of candy, slice of cake, or a cookie. Only you cannot eat just one piece. If one cigarette creates the craving for another, one dose of sugar creates the need for another and another.

This addiction, along with the loss of appetite control that's also caused by too much sugar in your diet, leads directly to obesity. 

Sugar is the enemy.

Fortunately, there is a way to address sugar cravings with a simple change in your eating habits. Click HERE to eliminate sugar cravings and gain back appetite control. The bottom line is losing weight fast and safely.
