You may have seen the posts here at Hypnosis Health Info on fructose, sugar and obesity with Dr. Robert Lustig. As an avid reader and studier of diet, health and weight loss, I value the varying opinions amongst the leading researchers that I highly respect. Jeff Novick, R.D. and John McDougall, M.D., tell us that as long as you keep the level of intake of “all” added sugars to a minimum (< 5% of calories), it is completely irrelevant. With Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis you can be in control of what you eat, how much you eat and ultimately your weight. Hypnosis for weight loss can help you end unhealthy sugar cravings and help you create desires for healthy lifestyle changes.

Fructose, Sugar, Obesity and You!
I like to think of this in regard to 4 options:
1) Someone who has a very healthy diet and lifestyle and adds a small amount of any of the sugars:
I do not see this as being harmful or mattering.
2) Someone who has a very healthy diet and lifestyle and adds a large amount of any of the sugars:
This could have a negative impact on their otherwise healthy diet and lifestyle due to the amount.
3) Someone who has a very unhealthy diet and lifestyle and adds a small amount of any of the sugars:
I do not see this as being harmful nor would I see it as the main issue for this person. Due to their unhealthy diet and lifestyle, they have much bigger issues to tackle than a small amount of sugar.
4) Someone who has a very unhealthy lifestyle and adds a large amount of any of the sugars:
Again, the large amount of added sugars may have an added negative impact but they already have much bigger issues to worry about.
So, to me, again, the key issue always comes back to the dose and perspective.
Therefore, my professional and personal opinion is that I would care little about the occasional low dose use of any sugar as part of an overall healthy lifestyle and dietary pattern, especially if the occasional use makes the adherence to the healthy dietary lifestyle easier.

As Dr. John McDougall says, sugar is not health food. Sugar has lots of empty calories with no nutritional value. But, a little bit of brown sugar on your oatmeal is OK.
The real problem is that sugar for many overweight and obese people means eating the package of cookies or the bag of Snickers. That’s where weight loss hypnosis can help you to lose weight and change your lifestyle. With Slender For Life™ hypnosis for weight loss you can have an occasional homemade cookie or have a good quality chocolate bar in your home and not have to eat it all.
