Overcoming Your Secret Addiction to Sugar

Is sugar making you fat?
Sure, we all know to eat our veggies, lean protein, and whole grains. What most of us don't know is that sugar is lurking around every corner. That "healthy bread" you love so much – have you checked the grams of sugar in each serving? Have you even read the label to see what size a serving of bread is? It may only be one slice, which is half the amount most Americans use to make a sandwich while "dieting."
You owe it to yourself
Please understand that you owe it to yourself. Your decision to improve your health with renewed youth is something you want to do. You cannot accomplish such an impressive task for someone else. It's not easy, but in the long-run, I think you will realize that my techniques actually heighten your taste senses. You will crave healthy foods naturally, making healthy choices easier to make.
How to renew and retain your youth
There's another element to this lifestyle I speak of. We're not just trying to lose weight; we're trying to establish some anti-aging benefits as well. The critical component that you must add to your new eating habits is muscle building. You need weight training to renew and retain your youth.

Don't be fooled by long amounts of cardio exercise. Many people think this is healthy, but it is not. Long hours of cardiovascular exercise deplete hormones associated with youth. It will ultimately make you age faster.

You need to put effort into strength training. Depending on your body type, gender, and personal preferences, there may naturally be areas where you want to build more muscle. The important part is to be building muscle, lifting weights, and rotating through the basic muscle groups each week. This isn't easy work, but my charts in Sugar Rehab will help keep you on track.
I am here to help you
Don't worry, because I am here to help. I want you to find sustainable happiness with your body. You want to not only look and feel good, but you want to be healthy. Your loved ones want you to be healthy. Health isn't just about physical aptitude; it's also a mental and emotional state. Let me be your coach, and you'll have a friend to help you navigate a new path in your life.

  • testimonial_diana-2"When I met Dr. Edelman, I was doing the low carb diet. And while I was not gaining weight, I wasn't losing it either. After understanding the concept of eliminating sugar, I immediatly started to see results. After a few weeks of ONLY looking at the sugar content, and nothing else, I realized my body didn't crave the sugar either. I am down to my goal weight, and have been keeping it off for three years. I had no idea how simple, and rewarding this could be."

  • dotti_testimonial_red"The thing I love most about this book is that it has suggestions for foods to eat in “Real Life”. I had no problem going out to eat and worrying about what I was going to order. The only way I am going to be successful is to follow a plan that is EASY! I lost 15 lbs in 3 weeks, and I can’t wait to loose more!!"

  • testimonial_doctor-2"As a cardiologist, I have always had to deal with diet and exercise. Get ready for the paradigm shift. It's not just calories in and calories out, and hours on the elliptical. When Dr. Edelman (who used to be a carb eating runner) and I started working out together and changing our diet, we both had an epiphany. By eliminating simple sugars and adding resistance training balanced with moderate cardio, we got stronger, younger and had a lot more fun. At age 66, I am still working full time, skiing, kite surfing, playing golf and appreciating life as much, or perhaps more than ever. As I tell my patients, "try it for a month and if you get results KEEP GOING."

  • testimonial_michelle-2"Growing up I never had to battle any serous weight issues. I was used to eating what I wanted and not working out, but I could get away with it. As I got older I noticed my body was starting to change and while I didn't look horrible, there was room for improvement. I had friends that would diet and I never noticed any serious changes in the way they looked, thus, I have always been against dieting. I moved in with my dad one summer and noticed how good he looked. I started asking him questions and he informed me about his knowledge on the science behind foods and how they effect your insulin levels as they digest. He told me all about the glycemic index and I was surprised at how many foods I could still eat while keeping a good figure. He taught me how to workout and before I knew it I saw my body sculpting to how I wanted it. The thing I liked most about what my dad taught me was it was not a diet but a lifestyle. I will continue this lifestyle throughout my life, after all, who doesn't want to be able to put on a tight dress and feel good."
