Are you addicted to sugar?

It seems like sugar is everywhere! One can find sugar in obvious foods like baked goods, but it’s also readily found in delicious bacon, salad dressings, and that ‘healthy granola bar’ that you love. Stats Canada has reported that in 2004 the average Canadian consumed 110 grams of sugar per day! That is the equivalent of 26 teaspoons of sugar and about 20% of daily caloric intake. That’s a lot of sugar. It's this addition of massive amounts of sugar in processed foods that stimulates an appetite for more sugar. (It’s a vicious cycle!) Consuming sugar releases a neurotransmitter called dopamine. Dopamine helps control feelings of reward and pleasure. This dopamine response from eating sugar sends chemical messages to continue to eat sugar to receive the same pleasurable feelings.

    Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant

    Hi! I’m Jenna. A born-and-raised farm girl with nothing more than a passion and a dream to help others find freedom from food, as an Emotional Eating Coach. Using food as comfort has been my fallback my entire life and I have struggled with obesity because of an unhealthy relationship with food. When I graduated university with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 2010, my weight had climbed to 295 pounds. The day I stepped on the scale and saw that number staring back at me was a turning point in my life. I developed the tools to help me get out of my vicious cycle and finally gain my health back. I no longer turned to food for comfort and found other healthy modalities that helped me deal with my severe depression. Through my formal education and experience, I believe nutrient-dense foods are the key to optimal health. Nurturing the body starts with whole food. But I also believe it’s not about the food. How we view food and our relationships towards food is the bigger issue. The harder issue, the issue that people shy away. Keeping the weight off for 5 years isn’t because nutrition became my passion, but because I learned to have a healthy relationship with food.

This course was created for you if you feel obsessed with sugar.

The effects of having a sweet tooth are more vast than just cavities. And there has been a steady increase in sugar consumption since then. Refined sugars are found in a wide variety of processed foods, including salad dressings, baked goods, frozen dinners, bacon, canned goods, cereals, soda, juice, jams, candy, etc.

Excess sugar is linked to obesity and various health issues. Sugar is nutrient void and the more you consume, the more you have to eat to get your minimum nutrient requirements. Sugar is rapidly absorbed into your bloodstream. Therefore, consuming foods that are high in sugar, spikes your blood sugar which creates a demand for insulin followed up a blood sugar crash. This blood sugar roller coaster leaves you feeling tired, shaky, irritable or weak. This high demand for insulin and low blood sugar is stressful on the body. 

The habitual consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages has been associated with the occurrence of type 2 diabetes, independent of obesity. Sugar is readily absorbed into the bloodstream, therefore consuming excess sugar results in a spike in blood glucose levels. This creates a strain on your pancreas to produce more insulin to combat the high levels of blood sugar. 

Not only does sugar consumption affect your waistline but it has negative effects on your heart. Saturated fat has gotten a bad rap for heart disease when in fact sugar is a more likely culprit. A 2014 study demonstrated the correlation between increased sugar consumption and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
