Are You Addicted to Sugar?

OrganicBerries

    I love giving workshops and presentations because I get to share helpful information on how to truly lead a healthy lifestyle. I often make samples of #vegan food for people to try. I share research and scientific evidence that shows the many health benefits of switching to a plant-based diet. Some people will pay for a cleanse, detox, 1 month program, 3 month program, or 6 month program on the spot.
    For some amazing others, months will pass, and then I’ll get an email from them saying that they’re ready to make some positive diet and lifestyle changes. I love them. Something has shifted for them. They’re not resistant anymore. They’ve had an awakening. I don’t know if it’s the fall weather, the millions of sweets that are being passed around right now, or if there’s just something fantastic floating around in the air, but I’m getting tons of sign-ups for my 10-Day Sugar Cleanse. This isn’t a juice fast. You won’t starve. You will eat healthily, nourish yourself, and get rid of your sugar cravings.

 

In case you’ve forgotten, here are some not-so-sweet facts about sugar:

  • According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Americans consume 156 pounds of sugar per person each year (yikes!)
  • Sugar contributes to obesity
  • According to the American Diabetes Association, “adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates 2 to 4 times higher than adults without diabetes, and the risk for stroke is 2 to 4 times higher among people with diabetes.”
  • Limiting sugar in intensive care units saves lives (wow!)
  • Sugar interferes with the absorption of calcium and magnesium – two important minerals for our health

If you’re experiencing some resistance to making positive changes, here are some reasons to kick your sugar habit for good:

146 Reasons Why Sugar Is Ruining Your Health by Nancy Appleton, Ph.D. explains how sugar is damaging our health. Sugar can:

  • Suppress the immune system
  • Cause cardiovascular disease
  • Lead to both prostate cancer and ovarian cancer
  • Cause depression
  • Contribute to diabetes
  • Cause headaches, including migraines
  • Make our skin age by changing the structure of collagen

Testimonial: “Christina is amazing! She has a holistic approach that helps you make sense of several different systems going on at once– wellness doesn’t have to be as confusing as all the conflicting media would have you believe! Christina knows how to be healthy for the sake of actual health, how to end calorie counting and carbo-phobia, and how to respect your body with the foods you put in it and the activities you engage in (like yoga!) I’m so happy to have Christina as a healthy influence in my life!” – Kelsey L.

Sugar Blues Workshop

Candy

The holidays were just a few months ago and I’m still thinking about sweets. In particular, I’m wondering how sugar affects you. Are you the type of person who craves sweets?  Do you have low energy in the middle of the day?  If you answered yes to either one of these questions, you’re in luck! I’ve created an amazing workshop that will be a turning point in your life.

On Saturday, March 23rd, I will be teaching a class called “Sugar Blues” and I would like to invite you to join the fun! The workshop will take place from 1:30-3:30 pm in the community room in the Montana Avenue Branch Library in Santa Monica (1704 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica CA 90403) and it’s free!

I’ve designed this class to permanently change your relationship with sugar. You will leave this class understanding the causes of your sugar cravings and you’ll receive practical tools for dealing with them. And, as a special thanks for taking a step towards improving your health, everyone who attends this workshop will receive a free gift – wow!

It’s not about deprivation. It’s about freedom – the freedom to eat foods you love and have sweetness in your life without the side effects or the guilt.

You don’t want to miss out. Mark this event on your calendar—your life is waiting.

Space is limited, so please contact me soon at christinatanios@gmail.com or (310) 869-3634. Pass this on to anyone who you think might be interested in beating their sugar craving with you!

I look forward to seeing you!
Christina
