#010: Added Sugar, YOLO & It's Hidden Effects on Your Long-Term Health
Play • 40 min

YOLO (you only live once). It may be a 'fun' common way to say 'live a little' - but we take it's meaning - Quite Literally.

SUGAR – is known to cause cavities, diabetes (type 2) and weight gain when consumed in high amounts on a regular basis. But, DID YOU KNOW – it has now also been linked to digestive issues such as leaky gut and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, high blood pressure, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, dementia and has even been linked to increase the likelihood and growth rate of certain cancers?

That being said... What if we told you, you had the power to take your health back and do your best to prevent these above mentioned diseases solely by paying attention to what you’re eating …. Would you do something about it?

Change your habits? Switch up your morning routine? Maybe skip the coffee & donut combo every single day and reach for something more nutritious for the health of it?

How much sugar have you eaten today?

Truly take a minute to think about it.

Google it – Look into it. Turn the package around.


According to the World Health Organization - It’s recommended that women consume no more than 25 grams of ADDED sugar on a daily basis at most. (For men – the recommended amount is no more than 30 grams – max.)

Use that information & go from there.
