2/3/2015 UPDATE: ICI/PRO contributor Joan Kenk Ph.D. has published a new book on Sugar Addiction! So to celebrate her success I thought it would be helpful to republish her interview from 2011 – it was previously only for ICI/PRO members.
The first thirty seconds of the podcast will have you convinced she is the expert on the addictive qualities of sugar – and what to do about it.
Joan's book Stronger Than Sugar: 7 Simple Steps To Defeat Sugar Addiction, Lift Your Mood and Transform Your Health should be something you share with all of your participants interested in weight loss… which is all of them!
As I was preparing this interview I went back and counted… Dr. Joan Kent is the 20th different Master Instructor that I've had the privilege of interviewing for the Indoor Cycle Instructor Podcast!
We have dozens of articles by Dr. Joan Kent on sugar addiction and weight loss.
Dr. Kent is a Master Instructor with The Indoor Cycling Group of North America and she holds a Doctorate in psychoactive nutrition; the study of how foods effect brain chemistry along with a Masters in Exercise Physiology.
We got off of our intended track when I described an eating problem that I have and Joan helps me with a possible solution, one that maybe of interest to someone in you class.
Joan's suggested solution to my problem of yielding to sugar cravings after dinner was to take a spoonful of Super B Complex Vitamins. I'll let you know how it works 🙂
