Health coach shares sugar blues

GLASGOW — Lori Hagan, a health coach and registered and licensed dietician, was singing the sugar blues Saturday during a workshop that focused on how to get healthy and stay healthy.

In “Sugar Blues” at Mary Wood Weldon Memorial Library, Hagan discussed extensively the destructive qualities of refined sugar in the American diet, but she also talked to her audience about a variety of ways to keep a body healthy beyond avoiding sugar.

“Being healthy is not just about what you put in your mouth, it’s about how you take care of your body as a whole,” Hagan said.

Hagan started the morning by having the group do some stretches and then take a few moments of deep breaths and silent meditation. People tend to compartmentalize their lives, separating their diets from their career, relationships and stress, Hagan said, but it is all linked to personal fulfillment. Stress or disappointment in a person’s life often affects their diet.

“So many times we take food and use it to fill a void in our lives,” Hagan said.

That attempt to fill a void with sweetness has led to the fact that the average American eats 100 pounds of sugar in a year.
