^ (1) Celebrity Corner: Who said “Sugar is the devil.”
Which celebrity said this: “Sugar is the devil. Sugar is kiddie cocaine….”
The celebrity went on to say:
Ever witnessed any sugar-crazy behavior from your kids?
Hint. To learn who said this, you can go to page 266 of my
book Sugar Shock!
The answer also is at the bottom of this ezine.
^ (2) Do You Turn to Sweets When You’re Down?
The High Doesn’t Last
Are you one of those who “self-medicates” when you’re depressed?
In other words, do you turn to sweets and refined carbs when down in the dumps?
One research study from Alabama found that 67 percent of college students turned to sugary-rich foods when they were anxious, depressed, tired or moody.
As soon as they ate something sugary, most of them felt better right away—they reported being happy, relaxed or energetic.
BUT… and this is a very big BUT….
Their high didn’t last.
In other words, they did not feel better for long.
“Ultimately, they got a quick lift in their moods, but it rapidly dropped again, because the food was only a TEMPORARY fix,” points out researcher Dr. Larry Christensen, author Diet-Behavior Relationships: Focus on Depression.
That’s why, he says, they need something like therapy, eliminating sugar from their diet or psychopharmacology to break that circularity and create a permanent improvement in mood.”
From my perspective as a former sugar addict and author of the book Sugar Shock!, it seems that people who turn to sweets and simple carbs are seeking comfort, compassion and sweetness. Sugar doesn’t fill them up.
For those of you who are struggling with sugar issues or weight challenges, I invite you to ask yourself: Do you want to seek "comfort" in food or in the arms of loved ones and treasured activities?
FYI, I know it can be very tough to break free of your addiction to sugar and refined carbs, which is why I'm dedicated to helping people do just that.

^ (4) For Singles – Dr. Pat Allen Live Weekly Interactive Teleseminars
People living in Southern California are fortunate, because they can catch the renowned relationship expert Dr. Pat Allen at a variety of venues on a regular basis, but if you live anywhere in the U.S. you can now speak with her personally every Monday during the Dr. Pat Allen Live and Interactive Tele-Seminar.
These phone-in Tele-Seminars are held every Monday, from 4 to 5:30pm (PST), and people keep calling back week after week to share one-on-one with Pat with their questions, problems, issues and situations — to which she will offer therapy based on her 38 years of counseling experience. It's the next-best thing to making an office appointment!
Sign up now, if you want the chance to pick Pat's brain or just "lurk" in the background and listen in as she counsels others. To join and/or get more information, call Jim Hallowes, director of the Dr. Pat Allen WANT® Institute at (310) 390-4767 so you can get the special call-in number and your personal PIN to participate next Monday at 4 pm PST.
