This week, Beth talks with Michal talk about all things sugar as they’ve become “sugar experts” and are passionate about sharing and answering questions to clear up confusion around sugar. People are often aware of sugar detox programs, and even think they’re doing a sugar detox when, in fact, they are actually still eating a lot of sugar. A lot of people just don’t know how much sugar they are consuming!

Beth and Michal share their own experiences and do some myth-busting about what sugar is, what it’s doing to you, and how it gets in our diets and where it hides. They provide insight and tips to know when you need to scale back and get it out of your system.
