Sweet Confessions

The scoop on sugar, sweeteners, and feeling good


Thursday, July 23

Do you have a love-hate relationship with sugar? If you’re like a lot of people, what begins as the blissful experience of a sweet treat can lead to fatigue, low mood, and cravings for more sugar.

Join us as we explore this cycle—and how to break it—with nutrition experts Chris D’Adamo, PhD, and Rachel Druckenmiller, MS. From agave to xylitol, we’ll clear up the confusion about sweeteners so you can choose ones that won’t let you down. 

  • Find out why you may crave sweets.
  • Learn what causes a sugar “crash” and how to avoid one.
  • Discover strategies for sustaining your energy and curbing cravings—while still enjoying sweets.
  • Learn which sweeteners support health and vitality
  • Hear what the research says about natural sweeteners, including stevia, honey, molasses, maple syrup, and others.
  • Get the scientific skinny on artificial sweeteners, like aspartame, sucralose, saccharin, and their potential side effects.
