Beauty Tips with Dr. Burkenstock: Sugar addiction

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Did you ever finish a sugary soda or a doughnut, and then you feel like you need to reach for another? There’s a reason for that.

Dr. Kelly Burkenstock of Skin Body Health in Metairie explains that sugar, or sugar’s relatives, are addictions, like high-fructose corn syrup, for example.

“In the Dare to be Thin program, we show you, when you need a little something sweet, what some healthy alternatives are that could whip off that sweet tooth without causing that cascade of events in the body that lead to weight gain,” Dr. Burkenstock says. “You can stop this addiction potential and feel satisfied from the food that you eat.”
