Hi, I’m Maria Marlowe, a Certified Health Coach and author of Detox without the Deprivation. This is my weekly “Ask Health Coach Maria” series, in which I answer frequently asked questions that relate to health and wellness. Have a question? Ask me here.
Sugar has been tantalizing taste buds and crashing otherwise healthy diets for ages. We’ve all been there: it’s 3 PM in the office, the amazingly healthy salad you ate for lunch is wearing off, and you’re craving a sweet treat to perk you up and keep you going. Or, the waiter brings the dessert menu after a nice (yet not completely satisfying) meal and your friend asks if you want to split the double chocolate lava cake.
