Snacks at the Office Can Derail You

Evil-snacksCheck out this really timely, important op piece, "The High Cost of Free Office Snacks," by New York Times contributor Ezekiel J. Emanuel.

For years — basically, since 1998 when I quit sugar — I've been irked by this phenomenon of offering sugary "treats" galore at company offices and meetings.

What I've found discouraging is that sweet "treats" — candies, cookies, cake, and soda — also are often offered at conferences intended to make you a better blogger, speaker, and author. But when you eat all that junk food, you'll have trouble thinking straight and may not be able to remember all those good tips! And, of course, mindlessly noshing can also lead to challenges with your waistline if you don't already have them.

Kudos again to Ezekiel J. Emanuel for getting people's attention to an important topic.

Sugar was once my go-to "drug." Now, I'm an ex-sugar-addicted journalist. ALL 44 of my baffling ailments vanished after I reluctantly kicked the sweet stuff and quickie carbs in 1998. Now, I’m author of the expose, Sugar Shock (Berkley Books, 2006) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House, 2012), which gives you a simple, proven plan to kick sweets. My next book, Crush Your Crazy Cravings™ -- which I'm now completing -- will give you easy, tested tools to squash your cravings for sugar, salt and fatty foods. I’m also a motivational speaker, certified life coach, certified health coach, media guest, and Gab with the Gurus host. I'm also organizer for the upcoming Sugar World Summit.
