||NIH Work Life Seminar
Do you experience sugar cravings or find yourself lethargic after eating sugary snacks? You may not realize that sugar is a key ingredient in many foods and beverages we consume. In culinary terms, the foodstuff known as sugar delivers a primary taste sensation of sweetness. On the package list of ingredients, any word that ends with "OSE"...is likely to denote sugar. Added sugar provides calories but no additional nutrients. It can offer a temporary boost of energy, but it will be fleeting.
Sugar can actually have a significant affect on your energy level as well as your waistline. Studies show people who consume foods and drinks with added sugar tend to consume more calories. As well, there is a direct link between weight gain and drinking sweetened beverages. Excess sugar can also pose significant health risks including tooth decay, diabetes, and obesity.
Come to this tempting WLC seminar just in time for Halloween...the Candy Holiday...to learn about the 8 causes of cravings and the 10 steps for dealing with sugar cravings. Participants will receive a recipe packet. What's more, learn the difference between natural and artificial sweeteners, and how much added sugar to consume daily.
