Sugar Impact - The Revolutionary New Approach To Take Back Our Health

A revolutionary new approach to understanding the 7 categories of sugar and how to make the right dietary choices to shift your overall impact and quickly improve your health

Sugar is finally getting the attention it deserves. Following in the footsteps of the American Heart Association, the World Health Organization (WHO) recently released new guidelines about sugar.

Recent studies have not been kind to sugar or artificial sweeteners. One found both sugar-sweetened beverages and artificially sweetened beverages increase risk of type 2 diabetes. Several New York Times bestsellers, including Fat Chance by Dr. Robert Lustig and Sugar, Salt, Fat by Michael Moss, also tackle the sugar issue.

Unfortunately, this attention creates massive confusion: “Isn’t honey healthy, since it’s natural? What about sucralose? After all, it is calorie free. Juice is good for me, isn’t it?”

In this talk, JJ Virgin will introduce a new way to rate sugar based on its impact on the body, expanding on her concept that the body isn’t a bank account, it’s a chemistry lab, and food sends powerful chemical messages. She will show you how to help your patients lose their sweet tooth and reclaim their sugar sensitivity in a few weeks by shifting to a low Sugar Impact diet.

This webinar will cover the following points:

  • Receive a new framework or looking at sugar’s impact on the body.
  • Learn the concept of Sugar Impact Scales that incorporate glycemic load, fructose grams, nutrient density, and fiber. From these criteria, you can rate foods as high, medium, or low Sugar Impact.
  • Understand the fate of glucose versus fructose on metabolism.
  • Comprehend the problems with artificial sweeteners and why they are not the optimal choice for your patients.
  • Know safe, healthy sweeteners to recommend to your patients.
