Are You like a Sugar-Craving Rat?

Have You Heard about the Rodents, Who Chose Sugar over Cocaine? (For Cravings-Crushing Monday)

Have you heard about the rats, who found sugar or saccharin more tantalizing than cocaine?

In this study, most of the critters studied — a whopping 94 percent — wanted sugar or saccharin, NOT cocaine.

Recently, while planning my upcoming Crush Your Cravings Boot Camp, I was reminded of a fascinating study from Dr. Serge Ahmed, a scientist with the University of Bordeaux in France.

Back in 2009, I had the pleasure of meeting Serge while taking a ferry to a Food Addiction conference on IslandWood in Bainbridge Island, where I had the honor to give fitness guru Jack LaLanne a Lifetime Achievement Award.

I invite you now to “eavesdrop” on my fascinating conversation with Dr. Serge Ahmed. Instead of practicing my rusty French, I asked Serge in English so I wouldn’t miss anything about his sugar addiction research.

Just imagine Serge speaking with his adorable French accent.
He told me, “Connie, I was so surprised. We discovered that sugar may be as addictive as cocaine.”

You had to see Serge’s face to get a sense of this monumental discovery.

His eyebrows lifted. His eyes grew big. His face registered shock. He moved his hands about dramatically.

The next day, at the conference, Serge laid out his findings in more detail to the attendees of this event about Food Addiction: The Obesity Epidemic Connection.”

The title of Serge’s presentation told it all. It posed the question, “Is Sugar as Addictive as Cocaine?”

Ultimately, Serge and his research team discovered that intense sweetness “is much more rewarding and probably more addictive than intravenous cocaine.”

My Inspiring Nightmare

I Need to Help As Many of You ASAP With My Free Crush Your Cravings Virtual Workshop

Sunday night, after spending an incredibly inspiring five days with the most remarkable speakers who are helping millions — such luminaries as Jeff Walker, Reid Tracy, Susan Garrett, Ryan Levesque, and Justin Livingston — I had a strange, startling nightmare.

A full-blown, utterly frightening nightmare.

In my nightmare, I’d contracted a disease from a foreign country, I believe.

The illness was incurable. In short, I had only a few days to live. My time would be up soon.

And that’s when I woke up. I was going to die within days!

Knowing that I would die soon, you know what upset me the most? That I would die without haven’t served you enough.

This nightmare has been haunting and hounding me for the past two days.

I’ve been so troubled, rattled and shaken to the core — and I still am — that I never helped more of you, who struggle with bingeing, obesity or other health hazards.

I’ve been upset that I haven’t shared enough of the cool, amazing, super-simple, ninja tools I’ve been researching or creating over the past four years to help you Crush Your Cravings™ for sugar, flour, fat and salt.

How can I die without getting out there and helping you ASAP?

The good news is that — to the best of my knowledge — I don’t have a rare disease. I hope I’ll still live a long life.

But I just cannot live with the fact that many of you never got my help.

So I’m doing something to help you ASAP.  I’m re-opening my recent free Crush Your Cravings Virtual Workshop, which I hosted last week. This time, you’ll get to watch four instead of three videos. The third video will give you a sneak peek at what I’ve been researching and creating for years.
