Video Description

"For the first time, in her incredibly vulnerable talk, Laura tells her sobering story of becoming a sugar addict and what it took to reverse that trend and help others do the same.

For nearly a decade, Laura Marquis was inexplicably sick. Motivated to find answers, Laura embarked on a journey of self-discovery, finding that the food we eat directly impacts our health and wellness. Armed with a degree in Applied Body Science, a passion for health, and a thirst for answers, Laura became a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, and later opened her own fitness studio in 2009. Today, she is drawn to the kitchen by a passion to educate herself and others on the sugar epidemic, launching the very first refined-sugar-free dessert cookbook.

Laura's TEDx talk will expose her personal journey as a sugar addict, reveal why the average healthy American, regardless of their measurements, really isn't healthy; and examine why, despite modern medicine, obesity and disease still prevail at a rapid rate.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx"
