Sugar is everywhere in our society: in our food supply, our vitamins, over-the-counter and prescription drugs, it's even in table salt. It is socially acceptable at most gatherings, ever present in our work environments, and in our children's school lunches. The result --powerful cravings, sugar addiction, and a litany of health conditions ranging from anxiety and diabetes to Alzheimer's and heart disease. In this webinar, Heidi Snyder will teach how to control sugar cravings and keep blood sugar balanced. The information will demonstrate how to take steps toward a more whole food based diet, leading to better health and quality of life. Awareness of our bodies, of the source of hidden sugars in the diet, and of whole food solutions is the goal. You'll be given information and tools to learn more about why people experience cravings, energy dips, and emotional highs and lows, as well as realistic strategies and solutions that can be implemented immediately to overcome these imbalances. This presentation will cover everything from the physiology of blood sugar regulation, to the basics of understanding food labels and ingredient lists. The tools and education needed for health and nutrition professionals to conduct a Sugar Awareness and Elimination Project in your community will be provided.
