Sugar As The Original Gateway Drug w/ Michael Collins – Episode 108

Michael Collins is a former sugar addict. For the past 25 years, he has not consumed sugar in any form – at least not intentionally. His interest in sugar addiction began in the early days of his 12-step recovery from substance use disorder. As he weaned himself off other substances, he noticed that his relationship to and his consumption of sugar was beginning to resemble his other addictions. Curious and concerned, Mike started to talk about this with his recovery buddies. This led him to decide to quit sugar with the help of some amazing mentors.

This was over two decades ago.

After many years of successfully starting and scaling online businesses, Mike decided that what really made him happy was helping people break their addiction and come out the other side happier and healthier.

This is the 4th annual Kick Sugar Summit, a Five-day event featuring 42 speakers, some of the top authorities on health and addiction, over the 5 days event, over 50 hours of content!

In this episode we talk about –

  • How sugar addiction and recovery can go hand in hand
  • Is sugar the new gateway drug?
  • Natural sugars vs Processed
  • The science to back it up
  • Kick Sugar Summit
