QUESTION FROM CALLER: HELP! I AM ADDICTED TO SUGAR!
Listener Amy called in: “Hi Dr. Dave! What’s your advice for overcoming an addiction to sugar? I think I am addicted and just cannot stop!”
DR. DAVE’S ANSWER:
“Amy you are not alone! People are addicted to sugar all over the world love sweet things!”
First, eliminate all the dessert foods like cakes, cookies, pies, ice creams. This is the junk food that needs to go from your life.
Next, you need to limit your fruit intake. Fruit is good and natural, but don’t overcompensate for cutting out desserts.
Third, if you need something sweet and the fruit just isn’t doing it. Have some dark chocolate 70-85%; maybe 1-3 squares a day.
Get started with those 3 tips and see how that changes your life. Best Wishes Amy! Let me know how it works for you.
DR. DAVE’S TRIP TO MANHATTAN NEW YORK
Dr. Dave took a road trip to New York. He wanted a getaway and wanted to check out some good vegan restaurants. If you live in New York, you have so many great vegan options.
In Midtown there were so many fresh markets with hot food, salad/vegetable, and fruit bars. You can just stop in and get some wonderful fresh food for those meals you don’t want to do the full service sit down restaurant. Here is a link to some listed on Yelp: http://www.yelp.ca/search?find_desc=Korean+Market&find_loc=New+York%2C+NY
HANGAWI VEGAN KOREAN RESTAURANT IN NEW YORK
Dr. Dave went at 4:00pm between lunch and dinner. He relaxed and took his time eating and enjoying and reading on his Kindle. Dave enjoyed an amazing appetizer sort of like a pancake and some silk tofu soup and other fantastic Korean vegan fare. Check them out: http://www.hangawirestaurant.com/
AMAZING VEGAN PIZZA AT FREDDIE AND PEPPERS IN NEW YORK CITY
It is a rare day that Dr. Dave has pizza, but he couldn’t resist how amazing this pizza looked and smelled as he was walking down Amsterdam Street near 75th. They had vegan and non-vegan options. It was good and tasty, crisp vegetables, and nice crust. Check them out: http://www.freddieandpeppers.com/
PEDICURES, MANICURES, MASSAGES
Dr. Dave loves getting a pedicure, manicure, and massages. It is good to have someone take care of you and pamper you. It is good for relaxing and stress. It is good for your health! It is good to get these regularly; at least monthly. There are many options for this either in your hometown or on the road when you travel.
POD 39 HOTEL IN NEW YORK
Dr. Dave stayed at this simple compact modern hotel. There are two Pod Hotels in New York. New York is so exciting and wonderful you shouldn’t spend a lot of time in your hotel. So, save some money and just stay at a simple hotel where you are just going to rest your head to sleep. Check it out: https://www.thepodhotel.com/

TAKE A MOMENT – AT HOME OR ON THE ROAD WHEN YOU TRAVEL
No matter where you are. Take time to slow, down, explore, enjoy your surroundings. Take your shoes and socks off and walk in the grass. Maybe even do yoga moves in Central Park New York or do pull ups on construction scaffolding and following your nose to a great vegan pizza joint like Dr. Dave.
