Sweet Rewards: Cracking the Code of the Cupcake Culture
From an early age we are taught that sugar is related to good behavior and good times. Cake is held hostage until we finish our greens. Special occasions on the calendar dictate if we may indulge in candy. And suddenly the good behavior and the good times become so frequent that eating healthy is a punishment to be reserved only for a chaste time of cleansing and detox.
Our American culture is hooked on sugar. Not wanting to be alone in our addiction, we pass it on to our children, we share it with our co-workers, and we make sure our spouse is right there next to us with every slice of pie and every drink of soda. We make excuses and exceptions for our behaviors, and everyone nods in agreement.
We claim that we ate that way as kids, and it didn't hurt us--forgetting the United States suffers from an epidemic of Type 2 Diabetes.
Legislation has been passed, mandating that children eat better at school; and yet the federally subsidized breakfast and lunch program is still packed with empty carbs and high fructose corn syrup.
We are a society at risk.
Sugaraholics Take-A-Step Program
Admit there's a problem. On a piece of paper brainstorm with your family or co-workers about all the different opportunities you have each day or each week to partake in sugar.
This list should get you started!
Stage an intervention:
Start with yourself (that is the only person you can really change). What changes are you willing to make? Start small.
It's almost impossible to cut out habits or foods. Focus instead on replacing bad with good:
Start replacing feelings, too.
Notice the excitement that you have for a frappucino. Could you also have that excitement for a smoothie?
