Is Sugar F*cking Up Your Body?

Posted by Jason Ferruggia


Dan DeFigioMost of us know sugar is bad.

But just how bad is it, really? What are the negative effects we should be worried about?

The unfortunate reality is that sugar contributes to chronic health problems like Alzheimer’s, fatty liver disease, and cancer.

It can wreak havoc on gut health and your immune system.

For more on this, I enlisted the help of sugar expert and the man who wrote the book on it, Dan DeFigio.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Sugar’s overall impact on your health
  • The 4 types of sugar addicts
  • Sugar and depression
  • How to avoid gut health issues
  • Hidden sources of sugar
  • The problem with agave and artificial sweeteners
  • Are fruits and grains as bad as sugar?
  • The importance of mindful eating
  • How eating more can help reduce sugar cravings
