How Much Sugar Is OK, and Why Is It SO Hard to Stop Eating It?

How much sugar should you be eating? And why is it so hard to stop once you start? How have we evolved to crave it, and what can you do about it?

On this episode of the Spartan Up! podcast, Spartan founder and CEO Joe De Sena breaks it down with former journalist and TV presenter Sarah Wilson.

Also an activist and author, Wilson wrote the New York Times bestsellers I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook and First, We Make the Beast Beautiful: A New Journey About Anxiety. The 47-year-old entrepreneur is also the author of an additional 11 cookbooks sold in 52 countries.
