In one of my recent Fat Burning classes, each person brought in a processed, packaged food. I’m not talking about junk food like Twinkies – but foods that are marketed to seem “healthy.” One of the participants brought in a product that was given away in the goodie bag at a very popular race 10K race. The illusion for the consumer is “this product is healthy and good for athletes.”
You’ve hit the 3 p.m. slump and you’re fighting to stay awake during the last couple hours of work. You start to dig around looking for something to give you a little bolt of energy and you find those delicious chocolate-covered pretzels calling your name. You say “I’ll have just one” but that one turns into the whole bag! And your taste buds keep craving more. You’re plagued with sugar addiction!
