#26: Anette Sams – The Truth About Sugar and How to Reverse Diabetes 2

How do you reverse diabetes 2 through food and exercise? That is part of what this podcast episode is about. It also turns out this knowledge can help adults whether you have diabetes or not! How do we then make that knowledge into something fun and stop the shaming around food? That is part of the mission that Anette Sams is on. She is one of the leading experts in Denmark on the subject. She is a pharmacist with a Ph.D. in Pharmacology. Anette is a former Diabetes Biology Specialist and Director at Novo Nordisk. She is also the author of “The Truth About Sugar”  and “Getting out of Diabetes 2”.

Understanding the truth about sugar is part of the equation to reversing diabetes 2, getting out of several chronic symptoms and staying healthy. Anette provides concrete tools to take control of your health.

Anette will be in New York City from October 20 to 24 and she has a few time slots open for giving her talk SugarSmart (link: www.anettesams.dk/sugarsmart). So, reach out to her at sams@epoqe.dk if you are in the area.

“We have to think of sugar like the way we think of fuelling our car. We fuel it, and then we drive and then when the tank is empty or nearly empty, we can fuel again. But it’s the period between the two fuels where you perform the best.”
