    Quitting Sugar? Good Luck With That

    Quitting Sugar? Good Luck With That

    Join Jill and Dr. Nicole Avena, PhD, a pioneering neuroscientist and expert in nutrition, diet, and addiction for a discussion about sugar and the dangers it presents.
    "Many people blame sugar cravings on a lack of willpower rather than acknowledge that the substance is highly addictive - even more so than cocaine, nicotine, and alcohol.
    And the problem isn’t only dessert; sugar is everywhere - approximately 80 percent of products in supermarkets contain sugar. No wonder eliminating it feels impossible: the more added sugar a person eats, even unknowingly, the more likely they are to crave it.
    In Sugarless, Dr. Nicole Avena teaches you how you can completely change your mindset around what you eat. You will no longer use food to soothe or reward yourself or be a victim of the addiction machine that our modern food environment has created. She will show you how to break away and to use food for what it is intended to be: fuel for your body."
    Can't stop popping those gummy bears? This episode is for you.

So great

I started listening and ended up bingeing 5 episodes in a row because I was laughing and so interested! I have identified in some way with every single episode so far and I can’t wait to see what other ‘issues’ Jill tackles.

Is it getting hot in here?

I was led to this podcast from a Facebook post from an influencer. The post was for a link to the She’s Got Issues website and the Issues, The Menopause Special. I voraciously read it because I found myself getting night sweats recently and was wondering what the heck was happening. And then I saw the podcast episode with Dr. Jen Gunter and Stacy London and listened to those. They were so helpful and relatable and both encouraged me to reach out to my friends to talk about it.
