This is the most important post I’ve ever written.
As you no doubt know, obesity has skyrocketed among adults and youths alike; and children are on a track to die before their parents if they don’t change their unhealthy ways.
At the same time, coronary heart disease, cancer, stroke, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease have become our nation’s top killers. You probably know — or love — someone who has suffered from one or all of these.
But all of the above diseases are largely preventable.
I call them The Preventable Big Killers. And ALL of these potentially fatal illnesses — and many more — can be caused by overdosing on sugar and/or refined carbs.
Think this doesn’t include you? That’s what I used to believe.
But the average American — and person in any civilized country is consuming (either consciously or unconsciously) HUGE amounts of sweets and quickie carbs on a DAILY if not many-times-a-day basis.
Each of you may be taking in roughly 170 to 228 pounds of sweeteners per year and another 200 pounds of sugar’s sinful sisters, which I dub “culprit carbs.”
And every day, it seems, the news gets more frightening.
One of my favorite recent studies revealed that sugar can make you dumb!
More research suggests that it can make you violent.
Your sweet tooth even can trigger type 2 diabetes, even though your doctor may vehemently deny it.
Simply put, millions worldwide are in Sugar Shock.
For the past decade, it has my personal mission to inspire and empower sugar
and carb addicts worldwide.
I want to help them (you?) Get a Life that Rocks™, as I like to put it. (I began coaching people to Sugar Freedom in 2002, four years after I reluctantly quit sugar on doctor’s orders after being waylaid by 44 debilitating ailments.)
So I invite you now: Help me to help transform the lives of millions of sugar and carb addicts around the world!
Join Me Tomorrow (Tuesday) & Email Your Friends, Loved Ones or Entire
Address Book to Get Beyond Sugar Shock
Please join me tomorrow (Tuesday), starting at midnight.
On Tuesday, email your friends, fans, colleagues, health and wellness experts, etc. and invite them to buy my new book, Beyond Sugar Shock, all day and night.
Invite your loved ones or special acquaintances to go online.
Just send them to ==>> http://www.BeyondSugarShock.com/Book
Or encourage them to visit their local Barnes and Noble store. (Beyond Sugar Shock will be on the front table of 200 stores. If you go, please take a photo and send it to me, and we'll post it on Facebook.
By the way, Beyond Sugar Shock already has been praised by numerous empowering gurus and wellness experts, including Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Daniel Amen, Brian Tracy, Dr. Joe Vitale, Kathy Smith, Marci Shimoff, and many others.
Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition — which I attended in 2005-2006 — was even kind enough to write the foreword.
On Tuesday, the official launch day for my new book Beyond Sugar Shock, my intention is to reach millions across the world with powerful, nourishing, life-changing messages about the joy, excitement and exhilaration of Sugar Freedom.
But I can ONLY reach and HELP millions with your HELP!
So please help me to help millions take back their Sugar Power!
Millions need to discover how to break the seductive, powerful hold that tempting sweets and quickie carbs have over them.
Millions need to stand strong in the face of clever, deceptive marketing of dangerous junk foods and empty-calorie sugary beverages.
Millions need to get back their energy, vitality, and sex drive.
And, of course, millions need to slim down and get healthy.
Beyond Sugar Shock Helps People (You?) Break Free
Beyond Sugar Shock is designed to empower, educate and inspire sugar addicts and carb junkies of any size (yes, even slim people can be hooked).
My goal is to help them – you? -- easily, effortlessly, joyfully, even gleefully break free of this dangerous
addiction to sweets and quickie carbs.
Just letting go of your sugar addiction can quickly peel off pounds, help you improve your
focus, and even boost your libido.
(Just read Michele’s Sweet Success Story in Beyond Sugar Shock.)
Quitting Sugar Can Be Tough: My Goal is to Make it Easy, Effortless and Fun for You
Let’s face it, kicking or cutting back on a sugar or carb habit can be one of the toughest
challenges you’ll ever face.
That’s why I’m determined to make this simple for you.
And that’s why it’s absolutely necessary for you to put on a sweet suit of armor. You want to discover and use cutting-edge tools and tactics that strengthen and empower you so food manufacturers can’t seduce you to you eat their processed, nutrient-lacking junk just to boost their bottom line—which can add extra pounds to your bottom.
But sugar does a lot more than just make you fat, as I pointed out earlier. Lately, you’ve even
probably heard the phrase, “sugar is toxic.”
You also may have seen the provocative “60 Minutes” piece on the subject reported by Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
It’s easy to ignore this sugar-is-toxic warning. Even back in 1998, I knew that sugar was
bad for me, but I still indulged. (Learn my story in Chapter 1 of Beyond Sugar Shock.)
Now, I urge you to ask yourself: Are you, too, cheating yourself because you mindlessly stuff
those nutrient-poor silly sweets or quickie carbs into your mouth?
It would be my pleasure and privilege if you’d allow me to help you, your loved ones, friends
or colleagues easily break free of your sugar or carb addiction.
In fact, it’s my burning mission. Let me guide you to the Luscious Land of Sugar Freedom and Carb
My desire to help you is why I poured my heart (and many years) into this book and the
companion Sugar Freedom Now Course.
Why am I so committed to helping you regain your Sugar Power?
Because when you undertake recommended Adventurcises (adventurous exercises) and
other suggested activities in Beyond Sugar Shock, you’ll experience a massive transformation
unlike anything you've ever experienced.
That’s my prediction — no, my promise to you.
Sure, your goal may be just to lose weight, and yes, you will easily peel off extra pounds, but that’s only a small piece of the story.
Letting go of your sugar or carb addiction will turn your life around. It will make happier, sexier, stronger, more focused and balanced.
You’ll be a far better you without needing to rely on carbs as your crutch.
So, I invite you: will you tell your fans, loved ones, colleagues and acquaintances about Beyond Sugar
Shock on Tuesday, June 5?
Just send them to ==>>
Now, let’s take back our Sugar Power!
Wishing you a Life that’s Sweeterlicious (That's my word for Sweeter, delicious, scrumptious, luscious and elicious, and sensuous)

Today, it's my pleasure to be interviewed by Jill Lane, an expert in the fields of nutrition and exercise physiology.

Some of her current and past clients include coaches and players from the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Stars and Cleveland Browns as well as a variety of tennis and golf pros. As I've discovered upon interviewing Jill, her colleagues say she is gifted at turning complicated biochemistry into simple concepts and action steps that produce success.

For the first day of the Beyond Sugar Shock Book Launch Week, listeners will learn how going meatless once a week may reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, as well as reduce your carbon footprint and save precious resources. My guests are a Meatless Monday representative; gourmet chef/health coach Alex Jamieson (who appeared on “Oprah” and “Super Size Me” and is author of Living Vegan for Dummies and The Great American Detox Diet); and Judith Kinsbury, founder of the popular SavvyVegetarian.com blog.

It's that time of year again. We're entering into what I call the Season of Sugar Overload, beginning with Halloween, where, as you well know, it's considered normal and inevitable for most of you to consume lots of candies.
Yes, Halloween on Oct. 31 is National Sugar Overload Day.
Unfortunately, most of you -- i.e., the average American -- doesn't need a National Sugar Overload Day to get license to over-indulge.
The average American consumes a whopping 22 teaspoons of refined sugar a day from hidden or overt sweeteners in packaged, boxed, or canned foods and beverages, according to recent statistics.
In my opinion, though, most of you are taking in far more sugar than that -- you're consuming more like 50 teaspoons per person each day.
Of course, you may think you don't consume that much. Years ago, I didn't realize I was that hooked.
But after releasing my sugar addiction in 1998 (on doctor's orders), I learned that I was killing myself (and not so slowly) with sugar -- specifically candies. For me, it was Halloween every day!
Now, I'm dedicated to dishing the sour scoop about sugar so that you can have a happier, healthier, more enjoyable life.
Which brings me back to this 22-teaspoons--day figure.
It's easy to consume that much In fact, just add up the sweeteners you get from a bowl of most breakfast cereals, a can of soda, a granola bar and three small cookies, and you've already topped 22 teaspoons of sugar.
Anyhow, given the fact that Halloween is upon us soon, a group of us health experts, researchers, authors, nutritionists, physicians, and concerned citizens have joined together to help wake you up to sugar's dangers.
We've banded together to celebrate the first annual Sugar Addiction Awareness Day (SAAD), which kicks off the day before Halloween, on October 30, 2011.
The mastermind behind Sugar Addiction Awareness Day is Jill Escher, who, like me, has personally triumphed over her sugar addiction.
She also wrote about her success (even offering tips) in her new book, Farewell, Club Perma-Chub: A Sugar Addict's Guide to Easy Weight Loss.
Jill makes the important point that while Halloween may seem like an innocent occasion, but "the reality is that millions of Americans are hooked on refined sugars, and it starts in their youth."
Chronic consumption of sugar can lead to a plethora of diseases, including obesity, cancer, and type 2 diabetes, as I point out in my book Sugar Shock.
Join our worthwhile effort. Just check out the helpful website, End Sugar Addiction Now, where you can see a collection of healthy and inexpensive Halloween ideas that can take the place of sugar.
You'll also get some ideas for reducing sugar at home, in the schools, in the community and at work. The website also offers a list of resources about Sugar Addiction and an extensive Q & A section.
Those of us who support Sugar Addiction Awareness Day include:
Although in an ideal world, you'd have no refined sugar at all, I'm realistic.
According to the American Heart Association, adult women should consume no more than 6 teaspoons a day.
Adult men may have 9 teaspoons a day for adult men.
Meanwhile, the AHA’s recommends no more than 3 teaspoons for children.
As noted previously, today, most of you are vastly exceeding these maximums, with the average adult intake consuming about 22 teaspoons, and teens, about 34 teaspoons. (Again, I think most people consume more, but I'm using the often-cited stats.)
To illustrate sugar content of common foods, jsut look at how much sugar is found in soda, thanks to SugarStacks.com.
For instance, one 12-ounce can has 39 grams of sugar.
To calculate how many teaspoons that is, just divide by 4, and you come to nearly 10 teaspoons os sugar (about 9.75 tsp.)
Meanwhile, a Snickers 2 to Go bar -- which you may seen in stores lately -- contains 23 grams of sugar or 5.75 tsp. of sugar.
Bear in mind that only single sugary drink or candy treat can put a child well above the limit.
A study in the journal, Pediatrics cites a much higher figure. According researchers, soda contributed about "67% of all sugar-sweetened beverage calories among the adolescents, whereas fruit drinks provided more than half of the sugar-sweetened beverage calories consumed by preschool-aged children."
"On a typical weekday, 55% to 70% of all sugar-sweetened beverage calories were consumed in the home environment, and 7% to 15% occurred in schools."
The researchers concluded that children and adolescents today "derive 10% to 15% of total calories from sugar-sweetened beverages and 100% fruit juice." Plus, they taking in more and more.
"Schools are a limited source for sugar-sweetened beverages, suggesting that initiatives to restrict sugar-sweetened beverage sales in schools may have an only marginal impact on overall consumption. Pediatricians’ awareness of these trends is critical for helping children and parents target suboptimal dietary patterns that may contribute to excess calories and obesity."
Join us on Sugar Addiction Awareness Day and in the coming week, which I'm dubbing Sugar Addiction Awareness Week.
This is a wonderful opportunity to help us spread the word that if you just cut back on your consumption of candies, other refined desserts, and processed carbs, you could easily shed weight, get more energetic, possibly halt or reverse such diseases as cancer and type 2 diabetes, and boost your libido.
Please join the Sugar Addiction Awareness Hour on my Gab with the Gurus Radio Show. It will take place Tues., Nov. 1 at 2 pm EST, the day after Halloween, with a number of top experts. Stay tuned for details.
Also, stay tuned for some tips to deal with what I call Halloween Havoc.

You may being zapped -- in other words, you may be sensitive to the Digital Age.
Or, to put it another way, you may be a victim of what's now being dubbed electro-pollution.
All of us are under constant attack from electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and the electromagnetic radiation (EMR), which are caused by our cell phones, power lines, household wiring, computers, TVs, clock radios, microwave ovens, and many other appliances.
Now, researchers are linking electro-pollution with a variety of illnesses, including cancer, depression, chronic fatigue, birth defects, learning disabilities, and Alzheimer's disease.
In fact, as DirtyElectricity.org points out, some "health problems being attributed to electrical pollution include fibromyalgia, attention deficit disorder, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, and asthma. There are also cases that detail that electrical pollution aggravates other preexisting conditions like multiple sclerosis and migraine headaches."
We all need to how to protect ourselves against electro-pollution.
By the way, I've been looking into this, because I've been working on my next book, The Sugar Shock Diet, for Hay House, and may be experiencing some symptoms of electro-pollution.
Arm yourself now by listening to my recent valuable Gab with the Gurus interview with Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman, author of Zapped: Why your Cell Phone Shouldn’t Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution.
Special thanks to http://completewellbeing.com/article/getting-buzzed/ for the photo.

The Gab with the Gurus Radio Show was founded in June 2008 by author, speaker, and coach Connie Bennett. Previously, on July 10, 2007, she had created the Stop Sugar Shock Show, which she renamed a year later to more accurately reflect the broad scope of topics covered.
The Gab with the Gurus Shows airs on the popular, fast-growing www.BlogTalkRadio.com, the first and largest online radio citizen broadcasting network.

Now that the weather is nice, this is the season for ticks, which means you may be at risk of getting infected with Lyme disease, as well as Babesia, Erlichia, Bartonella and other associated diseases.
If you get Lyme disease and/or a related disease, you may have some or more of the following ailments: fatigue, muscle or joint pain, headaches, mental confusion, fever or chills and swollen lymph nodes.
Why am I bringing this up now?
Well, in the past week, two people (one friend and one acquaintance) sought me out to discuss Lyme disease. They both know that back in 2008, one of those teeny-tiny bugs got far too cozy with me (burrowing under my skin -- yuck!) and gave me this Modern Menace. So now I know a bit about this devastating condition.
In 2008, after being afflicted with Lyme disease, I plunged into investigative journalist mode. (My background is as a reporter.)
So I began holding Gab with the Gurus shows to help others, reading books, etc. Therefore, here are some Lyme disease resources for you and your loved ones:
1) First I invite you to read and comment on my op ed piece on AOL News last year about Lyme disease (http://www.aolnews.com/2010/05/28/opinion-a-health-epidemic-thats-going-largely-unnoticed/)
2) Then listen to least year's Gab with the Gurus Shows about Lyme disease. http://tinyurl.com/LymeDiseaseGabGurus2010Connie
3) Next, I invite you to listen to my very first Gab with the Gurus Show right after I got Lyme disease in 2008, where you'll hear from the following amazing experts:
Please bear in mind that, at the time, I wasn't feeling well when I did this show, because I'd recently gotten Lyme disease myself and was kind of spacey and wiped out. Listen here: http://tinyurl.com/LymeDiseaseGabGurus08-08Connie
5) Then, see this blog post about Lyme disease, too, and how you can get Bitten in the City.
Now, for a few pointers if you've been out near nature and aren't feeling right:
Meanwhile, if you haven't been bitten by a tick, here are some ideas what to do when you go out outdoors:
If you need to find a doctor, here are some resources:
Would you like to chat about ticks and Lyme disease? Post comments here, on this Sugar Shock Blog and on my Facebook page, at http://www.facebook.com/smarthabitsfans and also my new Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/ConnieBennettCoachSpeakerAuthor
Look forward to connecting.

If so, you must join Monday's Gab with the Gurus Show.
My guest is Jeb Berrier, star of a new documentary, "Bag It: Is Your Life Too Plastic."
In the film, Jeb examines our cultural love affair with plastics.
"Bag It" -- from filmmaker Susan Beraza -- is one of six provocative, character-driven films that focus on food and environmental issues that is being presented by Whole Foods Market, the leading retailer of natural and organic foods, as part of its nationwide “Whole Foods Market Do Something Reel” Film Festival (http://www.dosomethingreel.com) for Earth Month this month.
Jeb’s journey starts with questions like:
Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to them after they're discarded? What he learns quickly grows far beyond plastic bags.
Watch a trailer below.
In Bag It, you'll be shocked at what Jeb discovered:
This Whole Foods Market Do Something Reel Film Festival is being held this April in honor of Earth Month, in an effort to serve as a "reminder of small changes people can make for good while supporting budding green-genre filmmakers."
"Through our Whole Foods Market Do Something Reel Film Festival we want to raise awareness of environmental and food issues, and support filmmakers who are creating films that inspire people to question the impact our choices have on our health, body and environment," Walter Robb, co-CEO of Whole Foods Market, said in a press release.
"We see film as an inspirational medium that can spark an active dialogue and encourage people to take action locally."
These are the other films featured this month:
"Lunch Line" — This deeply affecting film from filmmakers Mike Graziano and Ernie Park follows six kids from one of the toughest neighborhoods in Chicago as they set out to fix school lunch � and wind up at the White House. Their unlikely journey parallels the dramatic transformation of school lunch from a patchwork of local anti-hunger efforts to a robust national feeding program. www.lunchlinefilm.com
"On Coal River" — A compelling and transcendent narrative on the human costs of coal and strip-mining, this provocative film from filmmakers Francine Cavanaugh and Adams Woods follows the journey of a former coal miner and his neighbors, residents of Coal River Valley in West Virginia, as they transform from so-called victims to fearless and informed experts on mountaintop removal. www.oncoalriver.com
"PLANEAT" — This visually stunning film from filmmakers Shelley Lee Davis and Or Shlomi tells the story of the scientists, farmers and chefs tackling one of the greatest problems of our age: Western culture's love affair with meat and dairy. Through an extraordinary personal and mouthwatering culinary journey we discover the wide range of medical and environmental benefits of eating our veggies. www.planeat.tv
"Urban Roots" — Filmmaker Mark MacInnis tells the powerful story of a group of dedicated Detroiters working tirelessly to fulfill their vision for locally grown, sustainably farmed food in a city cut off from real food and limited to processed fast food. This group has taken on the enormous task of changing this reality. www.urbanrootsamerica.com
"Vanishing of the Bees" — Narrated by Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Page, this cautionary tale from filmmakers George Langworthy and Maryam Heinen reveals the mystery of the disappearing bees, and the links to industrial farming and our attitude toward the natural world. Starring in this real-life drama is a commercial bee farmer who sounded the alarm when his bee colonies collapsed and his business was decimated. www.vanishingbees.com
As part of the Festival, Whole Foods Market will also stream the documentary, "Dig It" on www.dosomethingreel.com on Earth Day, April 22. This energetic, call-to-action film features the members of the band Pearl Jam as they participate in tree-planting actions and beautification efforts in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Kudos to Whole Foods for presenting such a wonderful festival!

My guest today is top nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman, author of Zapped: Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn't Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution
In our Gab with the Gurus show today, Ann Louise will help you to think about all the innovations have you dialed, watched, surfed, charged, listed to, booted up, commuted on, cooked with, and plugged in today.
As Ann Louise puts it, We’re being zapped: Today 84 percent of Americans own a cell phone, 89 million of us watch TV beamed in by satellite, and we can’t sip a cup of coffee at our local cafÉ without being exposed to Wi-Fi. The very electronic innovations that have changed our lives are also exposing us, in ways big and small, to an unprecedented number of electromagnetic fields. Invisible pollution surrounds us 24 hours a day, seven days a week, interrupting our bodies’ natural flow of energy. And for some, that pollution has reached the point of toxicity, causing fatigue, irritability, weakness, and even illness.
Ann will offer some tips to detoxify your surroundings and protect yourself and your family.
Ann Louise Gittleman has been named one of the country's Top Ten Nutritionists by Self Magazine. Dr. Gittleman maintains a private practice, consults for medical establishments, contributes regularly to national magazine features, and is a popular guest on television and radio.

If you're a sugar addict, you may be looking for sugar to get you "high" and to soothe you.
Zumba® is an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, calorie-burning, Latin-inspired, downright-addictive dance-fitness party™, that blends red-hot international music, created by Grammy Award-winning producers, with contagious moves.
Since its inception in 2001, Zumba Fitness -- created by "happy accident" by Alberto "Beto" Perez -- has grown to become the world’s largest and most successful dance-fitness program, with more than 10 million people of all shapes, sizes and ages taking Zumba classes in 90,000-plus in 110-plus countries.
In today’s special Gab with the Gurus Radio Show, the famous Zumba founder, Beto, will tell you how Zumba can help you, why it's become so popular, and how you can benefit the American Heart Association or other groups with a "Party Hearty" event in your area.
Learn about this exhilarating workout today on my Gab with the Gurus Radio Show with founder Alberto "Beto" Perez.
Listen live at 2 pm EST, or later, at your convenience.
FYI, I'm a HUGE fan of Zumba myself and am excited about tonight when he will be teaching a class in New York City.
At tonight's event (at 7 p.m. at the Grand Ballroom in NYC), "Today" show co-anchor and NBC Dateline correspondent Hoda Kotb, along with Zumba Fitness creator and celebrity trainer Beto, will lead Manhattan’s movers and shakers in a flagship Zumbathon charity class as part of Zumba’s Party Hearty™ program.
Party Hearty is a partnership between the dance-party fitness brand Zumba Fitness and the American Heart Associations’ Go Red Por Tu Corazón- the bilingual arm of the Go Red movement- to build awareness on the dangers of heart disease.
Let me know when you try Zumba and how you feel afterward!
