As your friend, I wanted to let you know about the dangers of sugar.
I recently picked up this fantastic read by Dr John Yudkin “Pure, White and Deadly” which gives a fascinating insight to the dangers of sugar consumption and its increased use worldwide.
Did you know, there is no physiological requirement for humans to have sugar? This means we can get all of our nutritional needs without having a single spoon of white, brown or raw sugar. More worryingly, if only a small fraction of what is already known about the effects of sugar were to be revealed in relation to any other material used as a food additive, that material would be banned.
It certainly has made me rethink my outlook on sugar, and if you’re not one for reading, I’ll be sure to do a summary video soon on drnora.com.
So next time you reach out for that mid afternoon biscuit take a moment to think, ‘what benefit is this having on my body?’ Take care and stay healthy 😘
It’s time to work out 🏋️♀️🤺🤸♂️ Australia is silently suffering from an obesity epidemic. With 1 in 4 Australian children now either obese or overweight and nearly 2 thirds of adults overweight or obese it’s time to take action.
These are scary statistics which can be avoided with education on healthy eating and exercise.
Being obese or overweight leads to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease to name a few.
So the next time you’re thinking about spending the day indoors grazing in front of Netflix why not take a walk outside, enjoy some of the beautiful sites and fresh fruit and veg Australia has to offer.
Heart disease is one of Australia’s largest health problems with over 1.2 million people being affected. Risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol being overweight, alcohol and smoking.
This month is all about raising awareness of having a healthy heart ❤
