Yes Virginia, it’s the sugar….

There’s a new movie out by a team of people trying to educate people about the way we eat.  YOU MUST SEE IT.  It is called FED UP, and it’s the movie the food industry doesn’t want us to see.  EVERYTHING we’ve been told about food and exercise for the last 30 years is wrong.  This move is from Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of An Inconvenient Truth) and Director Stephanie Soechtig.  FED UP will change the way you eat forever, if this blog hasn’t yet!

Do you know what to look for when you read a label in the grocery store?  Do you realize that the food industry is trying to lull us into thinking certain foods are diet foods when they contain 40+ grams of carbs (which turns into sugar in your body once you digest it!)

Do you know that sugar goes by over 200 names on food labels?

Do you know that school children injest more sugar than adults?

Empower yourself.  Get this movie, call your local theatre and tell them you want to see it!

Listen to my doctor Mark Hyman on Katie Couric this week talking about sugar:
