Today I have TWO sweet treats for you… And they’re not loaded with my HEALTHY sugar-replacing stevia.
Instead, they’re packed with the white death that is oh so very tasty.
The first sweet succulence: poetic candy that truly rivals Robert Frost’s goodies…
Have a bite of some ear dessert (well I guess if you read it aloud?) inspired by this high fructose corn syrup-filled Twix bar…
If I gifted you with the original version of this poem, I would have felt so very guilty for making you hyperglycemic!
Plus… I am selfish and want to keep some of his original lyrics to myself…
Sugar Yum Yum
Sweet as sugar… So tasty on my tongue
Yet so bad for my thighs… And even my lung.
I think about you every night
And that I cannot fight.
Sugar, even though you do so much harm…
I would eat you every day.
But then… I would end up like a pig… On a wide-spread farm.
I’d waddle around… Jowls sagged to the floor
Because I’d be 1000 pounds… As I ate you more and more.
You’d rot my teeth, you’d rot my soul
But I would just want another bowl.
You’d rot my heart out too
Yes, this is so very true. I’d probably try to sue.
Yet, you taste so nice, but you are so deadly
And that’s not a very nice medley.
So cheers to sugar…
Cheers to white gold…
Cheers to all of us… Never living to old.
Because although sugar tastes so sweet…
It will take years off our lives…
And that… That’s not very neat.
Obviously this poem was NOT created by public health authorities and researchers. Nonetheless, this confection does in fact have some not so tasty truth sprinkled on top… As the sweet stuff is in fact linked to obesity, heart disease, diabetes, rotten teeth and…. It even has the capability of taking years off our lives!
So if you’re not sure whether or not you are in fact addicted to sucrose… Glucose… Dextrose (the list of monikers goes on and on)… Do yourself a favor and watch TREAT NUMBER TWO… A very informative video I created with Brad Gouthro of Live Lean TV… That showcases some SERIOUS signs of sugar addiction.
TEN SIGNS YOU ARE ADDICTED TO SUGAR
Cake was harmed in the making of this YouTube video… And I highly advise you DO NOT try the “cake-plant” at home…
