Mike Collins: Why should we quit using sugar to our detriment?
Today we have with us Mike Collins, an Internet entrepreneur and a person in long term recovery from substance use disorder. Mike builds communities, currently in the food addiction space, and is looking for other opportunities to help folks in the SUD recovery space. He is especially interested in the Recovery Advocacy Movement and how websites, books, courses, social media accounts, apps and other venues where people are “recovering out loud” online are not only disrupting the world of recovery but putting it on steroids and accelerating it!
In episode #132 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Mike chose SUNY Plattsburg, his story on substance use disorder, why we as a society not be ingesting sugar, wow we should handle the emotions that surface as you change your diet, how we can end those annoying sugar cravings – without feeling deprived, why journaling is so important as a tool for success, examples of self-care, the benefits of meditation and how should we meditate, how we can raise children in a no-sugar or sugar-reduced environment, help in social events where cake and cookies are plentiful, and Mike’s favorite restaurant in Los Angeles. Enjoy!
