Orlando, FL (PRWEB) October 28, 2012
A single component found in nearly all popular food products is known to cause heart disease, stroke and even extensive nerve damage that can result in amputation.
On Thursday, Nov. 8, certified Maximized Living doctors across North America will host workshops to spotlight this common, yet dangerous compound: sugar.
The workshop, entitled “BitterSweet,” will demonstrate the risks of excess sugar and how to get rid of even the most relentless sweet tooth.
Whether it’s soda, pasta or even lunch meat, the overabundance of simple carbohydrates (which are high in sugar, low in fiber) in our food causes a metabolic miscommunication and spikes blood sugar levels. In the United States alone, more than 25 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes—which increases an individual’s likelihood of cardiovascular disease.
Recent studies have shown a strong link between lifestyle choices—nutrition, exercise, etc.—and the instance of cancer.
“The issue of sugar and artificial sugars really is bittersweet. They may taste good, but you're swallowing a poison pill,” said Dr. Ben Lerner, who is co-founder of Maximized Living.” As you investigate any common disease, you'll find sugar to be a part of the team of lifestyle mistakes that not only participates in causing it—but further helps the condition along. The great news is that there are many great alternatives that have the sweet taste without the sugar blues.”
The presentation will explain how sugars are hidden in common food sources and how to stabilize blood sugar. The workshop draws from the latest food science and the Maximized Living Advanced Nutrition Plan, which has helped thousands of people actually overcome diabetes and obesity.
