The ebola virus appears to be a particularly virulent foe and it’s making constant headlines worldwide. The news will continue to come fast and furious over the coming days with often conflicting information, so we will do our part to to bring a balanced perspective on what is being reported.  Look for more frequent HealthAlerts on this important topic coming to your inbox.

Snacking is so ingrained in modern culture that an entire industry has been built around it.  Perhaps you missed National Potato Chip Day this past March celebrating the stunning statistic that Americans purchase BILLIONS of dollars worth of potato chips annually.

Can snacking help or hinder your efforts toward Super Health?  Should I eat every three hours, every two hours, or perhaps not snack at all?  Is the standard “three square meals a day” sufficient for good health? 
  
Today on LivingFuelTV, we tackle these questions and add simple, cost-free strategies to help improve the health of you and your family that you can incorporate today.

150 pounds!  Would you believe that is this the amount of sugar the average American consumes in a single year?

Sugar was a special treat just one generation ago, a dietary micronutrient, but today has become a staple, a macronutrient, in the American diet.  Sugar is literally everywhere—in soft drinks, cookies, cakes, crackers, and most processed foods.  Sugar even lurks in the ingredient list of breads and often disguised in many “health” foods.  So, exactly what role should sugar play in your family’s diet?  Is sugar an effective workout fuel?  Is sugar really addictive?

We answer these questions and more with elite strength and conditioning coach Andy O’Brien today on LivingFuelTV.

Despite messages we receive from conventional medicine, even Diabetic Living magazine (complete with enticing cover photos of cakes, cookies and other sweet treats), diabetes is a gravely serious diagnosis and should be treated as an emergency.  It’s a death sentence, but a sentence that you can reverse in the case of Type 2 diabetes, and manage in the case of Type 1 diabetes.  How?  By using information, education, and a steely resolve to not “live with” diabetes.  You’ll often hear diabetics refer to “my diabetes” as if they own it.  Let’s think and live differently!

Today on LivingFuelTV with KC Craichy, learn the important distinctions between pre-diabetes, Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and now Type 3 diabetes.  Also, you’ll learn steps you can take today to help your body reverse diabetes or prevent you from becoming a diabetic statistic in the first place.
