It’s the time of year when supermarkets strategically line their checkout counters with chocolate covered bunnies, marshmallow peeps, and of course my all-time childhood favorite…
Cadbury creme eggs.
A delicious holiday blend of milk chocolate, vegetable fat, emulsifiers, sugar, glucose syrup, invert sugar syrup, and other weird stuff that surely sent my blood sugar on a wild ride.
And that’s why it struck me as odd that while reading Michele Simon’s book Appetite for Profit I learned that Cadbury Schweppes — maker of the creme eggs and other sugar bombs at the time of the author’s writing — was a strong financial supporter of the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
Mark was kind enough to spend 90 minutes with us answering YOUR calls and Facebook/Twitter questions.
One of those questions was about insulin resistance, a very common health issue in a country addicted to sugar and polyunsaturated fats.
The most unfortunate part of our deadly epidemic of insulin resistance is just how easy it is to reverse. The hard part, for most people, is actually DOing it!
Check out the video below, in which Mark gives YOU the nutshell version of how to reverse problems with blood sugar regulation. And remember, insulin is the primary hormone responsible for the storage of fat. When you control insulin and blood sugar you turn ON the fat-burning hormones and enzymes. I write all about this is my new e-book The Dark Side of Fat Loss (DSFL).
