New Reality TV Show Casting People With Sugar Addiction This Week


Bona fide sugar addicts should apply to new television reality show

From the casting company who brought you the hit NBC-TV reality show "The Biggest Loser," now there is another health-related reality show on the way around the issue of sugar addiction. This has long been a popular theme at my blog because sugar has been shown to shatter your health, be very addictive and even lead to criminal activity.

Now YOU will have a chance to get help for your sugar addiction if you can show up for an open casting call in the Los Angeles, California area this weekend. Are you a head first sugar addict, able to eat sugary chocolates, candies, ice cream, cakes, cookies, pies and so much more without even thinking about it? Then 3 Ball Productions/TLC wants to meet you and possibly put you on national television.

If you are seriously interested, then here's how you qualify:

- MUST BE 22-54 YEARS OLD
- MUST BE A MAN OR WOMAN (what else would you be?)
- MUST BE AT LEAST 30 BUT NO MORE THAN 90 POUNDS OVERWEIGHT
- MUST BE AVAILABLE FOR AN IN-PERSON INTERVIEW WITH PRODUCERS
- MUST BEGIN SHOOTING ON SATURDAYS IN FEBRUARY 2008

The auditions begin TODAY, December 6th and will continue on Friday and Monday. No more auditions will be accepted after that, so please act quickly for this unique opportunity to be on television and get help for your sugar addiction.

If you are from the UK, then you probably already know who Paul McKenna is. But for those of us in the United States, he's probably a mystery. But pretty soon EVERYONE will know who he is after watching him as the host and star of this new reality series.

Check out this video of McKenna implementing some of his visual strategies for overcoming some common mental issues associated with sugary foods. THIS IS AWESOME!!!



Listening to this guy talk reminds me of how I beat my sugar and carbohydrate addiction back in 2004. Some may think McKenna's methodology is a bit bizarre and sensationalist, but the fact is it works! And if you aren't pumped up after watching him in that video, then there's just no motivating you. This is truly an exciting opportunity for the lucky contestants on this upcoming new reality show.

Okay, so you qualify, you're able to be in LA today, tomorrow, or Monday for the casting call, and you can't wait to meet Paul McKenna and get started on beating your sugar addiction. Now what?

E-mail 3 Ball Productions/TLC at totalrealitycast@aol.com ASAP!

The details you should include in your e-mail are:

- What specific sweet treats are your sugary vice?
- How long have you been addicted to sugary foods?
- What is your height and weight and how much weight loss is needed?
- What is your most sad sob sugar story?
- Why do you want to kick your sugar addiction for good?

If you would prefer to speak with someone by telephone, then you can also call one of the casting directors Lexie Shoemaker at (310) 727-3337 ext. 71270. She'd be pleased to hear from the readers of the "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" blog who need a little extra help beating their addiction to sugar. Makes me wish I was still a sugar addict--NOT! :)

Let me know if you decide to go try out for this reality show with Paul McKenna. With most of the health and diet information focused on how bad fat is, I'm so happy to FINALLY see a show that's gonna deal with the REAL culprit in weight and health--SUGAR! Some claim it can be a part of a healthy lifestyle, but we know better, don't we? Stories of people overcoming their addiction to sugar abound, so will you be the NEXT one by appearing on this show?

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE and make us all proud!

12-7-07 UPDATE: Not surprisingly, my fellow sugar-shunning blogging buddy Connie Bennett also shared about this TV opportunity for sugar addicts! GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!

Some of us recovering from sugar addiction also recover from craving and dependence on the artifical, intense sweet taste of manufactured sugars.

There is recovery from sugar addiction and then there is transferring that to artificial sweeteners. There are too many sufferers who continue to fight cravings because they use AS, not knowing that it is the unnaturally intense "taste" of sweet that keeps imbalance and cravings alive in the body's reward centers in the brain.

This is one way that carb and weight creep happens even with people who do Atkins.

A good overview of the science is in "How can drug addiction help us understand obesity?" by Volkow and Wise in Nature Neuroscience.

And a good nutrition program to get off it ALL, that accounts for the brain system as well as the insulin system, is Potatoes not Prozac by DesMaisons.

The book Potatoes Not Prozac is awesome!
I think the show is looking for people that live in SO CA. I got a response and that location was important to them.

Potatoes are pure sugar, with or without the peeling.

I may have finally figured out a way to say this so that I can get people to understand what it is that I'm trying to say. 'CONCENTRATED HYBRID CARBOHYDRATES'

OR 'HYBRID CONCENTRATED CARBOHYDRATES' -- same thing. -- This includes SUGAR, ALCOHOL, WHEAT, CORN, GRAIN, LENTILS, MOST FRUIT AND FRUIT JUICE, MOST VEGETABLES, NUTS, HIGH FRUITOSE CORN SYRUP, MILK AND MOST MILK PRODUCTS.

This thing is big. We are all addicted to these hybrid concentrated carbohydrates. Bred and raised and hybrid by man to make money.

Hybrid concentrated carbohydrates are sugar and sugar is a stimulant drug that is no different than all of the other drugs. -- Sugar is speed.
