It’s time to be dramatic. This cartoon dishes the facts — admittedly, bluntly — that sweets and processed carbs, including licorice, cookies, chocolate cake, ice cream, popcorn, soda and French fries can, in fact, send you to an early grave.
Think I’m exaggerating in this cartoon from the talented Isabella Bannerman?
Unfortunately, I’m not.
When you eat too many candies, soft drinks, and processed carbs, you could get:
Does your diet look like the question mark to your left or the one to your right?
Now, take a guess… What percentage of your diet do you think comes from processed breads, pizza, donuts, buns or chips?
So what’s your processed foods figure?
If you’re like most Americans, more than half of your diet comes from ultra-processed foods. So found a study in the peer-reviewed medical journal, BMJ during which 9317 were surveyed, more than half of people’s foods (57.9 percent) are “ultra-processed.”
The researchers, who were from the University of São Paulo in Brazil and Tufts University in Boston, defined “ultra-processed” foods as: “Industrial formulations of several ingredients, which besides salt, sugar, oils and fats, include substances not used in culinary preparations, in particular additives used to imitate sensorial qualities of minimally processed foods and their culinary preparations.”
Why is it so troubling that 57.9 percent of your diet comes from ultra-processed foods?
Now for less-obvious conclusions, which come from my new insights into cravings:
So what’s the big takeaway?
Eliminate or drastically cut out processed foods, and you’ll cut your cravings, take back your power and peel off your excess weight.

Almost anyone (even your kids, under your guidance) can master this process. And always, an hour or two later and the next morning, you’ll feel so relieved that you didn’t cave into your cravings!
I first learned the magic of Delaying, Distracting and Detaching in 1998 when I kicked sweets and simple carbs on doctor’s orders.

Millions of people are craving sweets and processed carbs and suffering from a blood sugar condition that just doesn’t get enough press.
I’m not talking about pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes.
Rather, if you feel moody, tired, or confused, you may have low blood sugar or hypoglycemia.
The good news is that, unlike diabetes, in most cases, you don’t need insulin or other medication.
What’s so easy about hypoglycemia is that it’s very easy to manage, as I’ve discovered. (My condition is why I quit sugar in the first place.)
So, take a look at the list below to discover if you have any of these symptoms.
Which, if any, of these symptoms of hypoglycemia or low blood sugar do you have?
Irritability & moodiness
Waking up with a “hangover”
The shakes (when hungry)
Mental confusion (“fog” on the brain)
