“Your brain lights up with sugar just like it does on cocaine or heroine. You’re going to become an addict”.
That’s a quote from the movie you and your children must see to understand how sugar is the problem, not fat.
Everything we’ve been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong. FED UP is the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see. 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. The film opens in theaters across the country on May 9th 2014.
have you seen that the labels on foods and drink do NOT show the % Daily Value against the Sugar content? It does on everything else but not for sugar. I wonder why.
Maybe it’s because they don’t want you to know the facts:
- For each 20 ounce bottle of soda, there are 17 teaspoons of sugar.
- 98% of food related ads that children view (3920/year) are for products high in fat, sugar and sodium.
- There is overwhelming evidence of the link between obesity and the consumption of sweetened beverages, such as soft drinks, energy drinks, sweet teas, and sports drinks.
- In 2012, Americans consumed an average of 765 grams of sugar every 5 days, or 130 pounds each year.
Watch this movie with your children and educate them what to be conscious of in their diets.
And stay off low fat products. Low fat means double the sugar! And artificial sweeteners make no difference to the way the body processes the sweetness. It still triggers the liver and pancreas and increases the likelihood of Type 2 Diabetes. There’s no fooling nature.
