“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 because Fed Up will change the way America eats.”

There are over 600,000 foods items in America. and 80% of them have added sugar in them. Our brains when given sugar light up like a Christmas tree. Sugar has been likened to cocaine. This is the first generation where we as adults may outlive our children. Is it because we lack the will power to “Just Say No” to sugar? 

                            

Why is it so hard to put down that sugary treat? By 2050 1 out of every 3 Americans will have diabetes. In America the biggest category of questions comes down to one thing – sugar. (All health questions center around this) All health issues stem from one single thing, sugar. People want to know how to diet, how to curb cravings for sugar, how to avoid diabetes, reverse or manage it. 

We have not been taught how to function without sugar but it can take as little as 7 days to change all this. We can control our blood sugar in one month. The most essential thing about dieting is you have to stop sugar. Once you give the brain what it wants which is protein it doesn’t crave sugar. This in turn creates dopamine. When we have this neurotransmitter working properly we can control stress through thought and will power so we are less likely to go into stress response.

We did not have access to all this sugar years ago, we were lucky if we had a couple of tablespoons a day or every few months. There were no 7 Eleven’s or Starbucks on every corner. We ran on proteins and fats. When we have a continuous elevated blood sugar our body’s cannot utilize any fat.
