Sugar is currently a very hot topic! Many of us are eating and drinking too much of the stuff, too often. The more sugars that have crept into our family foods over the years the more dependant we have become. This is a big concern as more and more studies link the sugary modern diet to weight gain and serious health conditions. So whether you need help to set healthier eating habits, lose weight or to avoid sugars as a first stage to managing health conditions with diet, this course is for you!
We need to gain energy from our foods but we don’t need added sugar. Eating excessive sugars is linked to weight gain, bad skin, mood swings and increased risk of developing serious health conditions.
