Hudson Library Notes: Breaking the sugar habit at Hudson Library

If you find yourself in love with donuts, candy, soda and even bread, you're not alone. Adult sugar consumption jumped 30 percent from 1977 to 2010, according to Science Daily. There's no denying sugar makes delicious treats.

For decades, health professionals decried fat as the major wellness-buster. Research is turning that belief upside down. Now experts say healthy fats are good for the body while sugar, which is often added to low-fat foods, causes inflammation. And inflammation leads to chronic illnesses.

At the Hudson Area Library on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 6:30-7:30 p.m., we're offering a program with health coach Tonya Schmitt called "Breaking the Sugar Habit." She'll offer evidence-based methods to help reduce sugar cravings and tips to help you not feel deprived. Please register for this program by calling the library or going to the website.

For more information about this and other programs, visit or call us at 715-386-3101.
