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

Sugar was a special and rare treat just a few decades 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.

Welcome to 2013!  With the dawning of a new year, many of us have a yearning to take our health to another level.  To live life to its fullest, it’s important that we be at the top of our game.  We need to feel good!  New Year’s resolutions typically transition back to normal routines because they are based on results alone, without identifying motivations.  With a bit of planning and motivation-powered commitment, we set ourselves up for success.

Now is a great time to lock in life-long Super Healthy lifestyle changes and we want to help you redefine your “normal” in 2013!  The Living Fuel Fast and the 7 Day Challenge are popular pages at our website for good reason—the benefits and advantages of fasting without hunger and cravings are powerful and numerous.  They also are a terrific way to jumpstart your new lifestyle.

You’ve held your learner’s permit for the past year, logged hundreds of miles behind the wheel and feel confident at a four-way stop and in thorny rush hour traffic.  You’re a bit tired of borrowing the family sedan, so all that’s missing is a car of your own.  And now, on your sixteenth birthday, your parents present you with a beautiful brand new car—a dream come true!

There’s just one catch.  This car will be the only one you’ll own for your lifetime.  Imagine the care and attention you’d give your new prized possession—only the best oil, the highest quality gasoline and regularly scheduled preventative maintenance.  This allegory also applies to your body—the single most complex and high-performing machine you’ll ever own.

Today on LivingFuelTV, join me with Dr. Patrick Purdue, Doctor of Oriental Medicine (DO) and Doctor of Naturopathy (ND).  Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine said “Let your food be your medicine.”  Our subject is nutrition, specifically the food we choose as fuel for our bodies.  What we eat and what we give our family to eat significantly impacts our health today and in the years to come.
