Sugar Sugar Time (And I Don’t Mean Sweets!)

The_Archie_Show Thanks to talented journalist Dana Kennedy — creator of the clever blog,  A Year Without Candy — for reminding me of the fun pop song, Sugar, Sugar by the Archies.

This song makes me smile. I can't begin to remember how many times radio hosts have played this song before they interviewed me about my book Sugar Shock!

Please enjoy this. And of course, I'm not posting this to make you think about sweets (as in the sugary kind) but to think about having (non-sugary) sweetness in your life — something I invite you to find, get and create.

Dana 52 And, readers, please join me in congratulating Dana for making it 90 days without candies, cookies, etc. Way to go, Dana!

See my interview with Dana here, in which she articulately shared why she's choosing to go A Year Without Candy.

Agave is Worse for You than High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS): Please Stay Away From the Stuff!

Agave_syrup1 In recent years, health-minded people and health food restaurants have been excitedly ingesting and switching to the supposed, “safe, “all natural” sweetener agave or agave nectar.

Time and time again, since 2003, four years before my book Sugar Shock! was published in December 2006, I’ve been warning people that agave is not safe. In fact, I’ve been telling people, it may be worse for you than high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

Again, for some seven years now, whenever people have asked me if agave is a good idea to use, my answer has always been the same:

“Stay away from agave, because it’s very high in fructose and may have more fructose than high fructose corn syrup.”

Megan Confronts Cake in a Letter

Megan Bozman DSCN1697 Often, when I'm coaching clients to kick their sugar addiction, I'm hit by moments of intuition as to what may help people. (In coaching school with iPEC, they taught us to honor, respect and look for those flashes.)

So last Wednesday, during one of my Break-Free Group Coaching sessions, the idea hit me out of the blue that members might be helped if they wrote a letter or poem to their favorite sweets.

I then asked members what they thought of the idea of doing this. (I never give assignments.)

On Friday, Megan Bozman, one of our members, ran with the idea and wrote a brilliant, insightful, poignant letter while tempted by a cake at work.

She then confided to us (the group members and me): "B-day cake, vanilla with white icing is one of my #1 fav sweets — and that happens to be EXACTLY what is in our conference room right now, about 5 feet from my desk. So I figure it's a good time to write that letter to my fav sweet (which, as of Wed night, I was already planning on making white b-day cake!)"

White-cake Here's how Meg confronted Cake — a letter I'm republishing with her permission:

"Dear Cake,

"It's not you; it's me. I am aware this is cliched, but it is the truth in this case. You are not an evil entity.

"While you are a nutritional wasteland, you are not evil in moderation. I still plan to welcome you into my home to celebrate my son's birthdays and other such occasions.

"Again, it's not you; it's me. Something in me doesn't react well to you & I realize this. You are fantastic during the too-brief time I get to enjoy you. Ecstatic & wonderful.

"But too often, before I even finish swallowing the last bite, I just want more! Then, I still want more and more and more. That is where the evil comes into play… it is in large quantities that you become evil.

"And I won't waste time elaborating on why large quantities of you are bad. That doesn't bear repeating.

"When I get ensnared by your addictive properties, I feel terrible; both physically & emotionally. The feeling of being hooked is dreadful. For one thing, it's just simply embarrassing! It also has a negative effect on my self-esteem (really, I can't `just say no' & only eat a moderate amount?! What is wrong with me?)

"I don't have some of the negative effects some experience such as stomach pains, yeast infections, skin problems, & blood sugar crashes causing a rapid decline in both energy & mood. However, I feel bloated, fat, and, well, gross. Feeling fat & gross makes me feel ugly. It's just bad; just all around bad.

"So there you sit in the conference room. I'm sure others will enjoy you — don't fret. Cake rarely goes uneaten in any office. But for now, I'm 10 days sweets-free & intend to go another 11 days for a round 3 weeks. At that point, I'm thinking I'll stick to a serving of dessert or sweets once every 3 weeks.

Ta ta,

Megan then told us that she shared her Letter to Cake with her husband, who came back with a hilarious response. He wrote:

"Dear Meg,

"I appreciate your honesty and admire your sincerity. Let me just start off by letting you know that I do cherish our relationship. Throughout the years, we have had countless wonderful experiences together. The feeling of having you fight over me makes me smile. I love how I cause you such anger and turmoil. 

"I am so simple. Just a few ingredients are all I am.  I am but made of flour, sugar, eggs, salt, and butter. I mean you no harm at all. It is not my fault that you’re bickering over me.

"All I want is attention from you. I want you to drool over me. I want you to be thinking about me while you drive in your car. I want my cousins (cookie crumbs in your car) to remind you of me also. Please don’t throw away all we have had together.

"Our relationship is NOT one way. I give you a quick fix, and I receive enjoyment through attention. Attention is what I crave from you. I have been missing you these last 2 weeks or so.  I am lonely without you. Please come back to me so we can be bad together. Sure you will be mad and upset a few minutes after we reunite but it will be so good. Come eat me!
Hungrily, Cake"

Feel Addicted to Sweets & Other Foods? Junk Food Addiction May be Real

Junk food Do you feel completely out of control when it comes to eating candies, cookies and fast food?

Flopped on Your Diet? Fret not! Free Teleseminar on Top 10 Reasons You Failed on Your Diet or Kick-Sugar Program

Jimmy Moore 446429211_64abb9cb6f_m Are you really frustrated and frazzled, because yet again, you messed up on your diet and turned to donuts, candies or cookies when you intended to "do good"?

Even more embarrassing, did also you then get into an argument with your loved one(s) over no good reason, because you were hyped up on sugar or brain-fogged because of the crap you ate? And did you hide your junk food or eat your stash in private?

If any of the four scenarios ring true, you're in the company of millions.

Every hour, all across the country, people are "failing" on their diets and shoving sweets or junk food into their mouths and getting negligible nutrients.

Jimmymoorebefore It's perfectly understandable that you'd be out of sorts for relying on food for comfort or consolation. So are you ready to begin again tomorrow? Not the smartest move! You read me right!

Your diet or kick-sugar program should begin way before you actually start it. In other words, you need to set the stage first. If you were going to run a marathon, wouldn't you train for months in advance?
