Mark: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M MARK MARTIN.

POLICE IN AUSTIN, TEXAS,

SAY THE MAN BEHIND A

STRING OF BOMBING ATTACKS

IS DEAD AFTER AN EARLY

MORNING CONFRONTATION WITH

POLICE.

TWO PEOPLE ARE DEAD AND

FIVE INJURED AFTER

MULTIPLE BOMBS EXPLODED

THIS MONTH.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THE

UPDATE.

Heather: AUSTIN

POLICE SAY THAT THE

BOMBING SUSPECT IS DEAD

AFTER AN OFFICER-INVOLVED

SHOOTING NORTH OF AUSTIN.

THE SUSPECT KILLED HIMSELF

WITH ONE OF HIS BOMBS JUST

BEFORE AUTHORITIES CLOSED

IN.

AS MEMBERS OF THE

AUSTIN POLICE DEPARTMENT

S.W.A.T. TEAM APPROACHED

THE VEHICLE, THE SUSPECT

DETONATED A BOMB INSIDE

THE VEHICLE.

Heather: AUTHORITIES

ARE STILL WITHHOLDING THE

SUSPECT'S NAME AS THE DAY

BEGAN, BUT DID IDENTIFY

HIM AS A 24-YEAR-OLD WHITE

MALE.

HIS MOTIVE, THEY SAID, WAS

UNKNOWN.

SO HOW DID THEY FIND HIM?

THE AUSTIN AMERICAN

STATESMAN SAYS

INVESTIGATORS USED A

SECURITY VIDEO FROM A

FEDEX STORE IN AUSTIN,

WHERE THEY BELIEVE THE

SUSPECT SHIPPED AN

EXPLOSIVE DEVICE.

STORE RECEIPTS ALSO

HELPED, AS DID CELL PHONE

TECHNOLOGY, WHICH TRACED

HIM TO A LOCAL HOTEL.

THE CITY OF AUSTIN HAS

BEEN ON EDGE FOR WEEKS

SINCE THE FIRST BLAST ON

MARCH 2nd.

PEOPLE ARE SCARED.

YOU WOULD BE, TOO.

RANDOM PACKAGES SHOWING

UP, EXPLOSIVES GOING OFF,

PEOPLE DYING FOR NO

REASON.

Reporter: FOUR BOMBS

HAVE EXPLODED IN AUSTIN,

KILLING TWO MEN AND

INJURING FIVE OTHER

PEOPLE.

THE TWO MEN WERE KILLED BY

PACKAGES LEFT ON

DOORSTEPS.

AND LAST WEEKEND, TWO

OTHER MEN WERE INJURED BY

A DEVICE SET UF B SET OFF BY A

TRIPWIRE.

THE RANDOMNESS OF THE

ATTACKS CREATING CONFUSION

AND FEARS.

WHEN WE WENT FOR A

WALK, I PULLED HER BEHIND

ME BECAUSE IT WOULD RATHER

IT HIT ME THAN MY BABY.

Heather: AND ANOTHER

PACKAGE EXPLODED

YESTERDAY, THANKFULLY,

ONLY ONE MINOR INJURY.

THE CONCERN NOW: THERE

MAY BE OTHER BOMBS OUT

THERE.

AUSTIN POLICE HAVE

RECEIVED MORE THAN 1200

CALLS ABOUT SUSPICIOUS

PACKAGES.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Mark: HERE IS A LOOK

AT SOME OF THE OTHER

HEADLINES WE'RE FOLLOWING

IN THE CBN SNOOZ CBN NEWSROOM.

PRESIDENT TRUMP CALLED

PUTIN TO CONGRATULATE HIM

ON HIS RE-ELECTION.

AND HE SAID THEY'LL MEET

IN THE FUTURE TO DISCUSS

THE ARMS RACE, UKRAINE,

SYRIA, AND NORTH KOREA.

THEY DID NOT DISCUSS THE

COUNTRY'S SUSPECTED

INVOLVEMENT IN POISONING A

FORMER SPY IN BRITAIN.

> A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS

BLOCKED A MISSOURI

PRO-LIFECORDER ON TUESDAY.

IT ESSENTIALLY STOPPED THE

LAW FROM TAKING EFFECT FOR

10 DAYS.

THE NEW LAW BANS ABORTIONS

AFTER 15 WEEKS.

> OVERNIGHT, HEAVY SNOW

IN THE MIDWEST, AND THERE

IS MORE WHERE THAT CAME

FROM.

A SPRING NOR'EASTER IS

EXPECTED TO TARGET THE

NORTHEAST ON WEDNESDAY.

NEW JERSEY AND MARYLAND

MAY SEE MORE THAN A FOOT

OF SNOW.

THIS IS THE FOURTH MAJOR

STORM IN THREE WEEKS.

YOU CAN FIND THESE AND

OTHER STORIES AT

cbnnews.com.

> A MARYLAND COMMUNITY

SHAKEN.

NEW DETAILS HAVE BEEN

UNCOVERED THIS MORNING

ABOUT THE 17-YEAR-OLD

STUDENT WHO SHOT TWO

OTHERS AT GREAT MILLS HIGH

SCHOOL.

CBN'S NATIONAL SECURITY

CORRESPONDENT ERIK ROSALES

HAS MORE ON A POSSIBLE

MOTIVE AND THE HEROIC

EFFORTS AND A SCHOOL

POLICE OFFICER.

Reporter: POLICE SAY

THAT A MALE STUDENT ARM ARMED

WITH A GUN WALKED ON TO

THE GREAT MILLS HIGH

SCHOOL CAMPUS, OPENING

FIRE.

HE ENDED UP HITTING A

FEMALE STUDENT AND A MALE

STUDENT.

A RESOURCE OFFICER CAME TO

THEIR AID, OPENED FIRE,

AND ENDED IT.

YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHAT

ON EARTH IS GOING ON IN

THESE PEOPLE'S HEADS IF THAT

THEY THINK IF I'M MAD, IT

IS OKAY TO GO KILL PEOPLE.

THE THINGS THAT ARE

HAPPENING NOW ARE TRAGIC.

IT IS ALL BECAUSE OF SIN.

GOD IS NOT DOING THIS TO

US.

IT IS COMPLETELY THE

SINFUL MAN.

Reporter: SHE AND

OTHERS ARE THANKFUL FOR

SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER

DEPUTY BLAINE GASKEL WHO

EXCHANGED GUNFIRE WITH THE

SHOOTER.

GOING OUT WHERE THERE

IS A SHOOTING AND RISKING

YOUR LIFE TO SAVE SOMEONE

ELSE'S, THAT'S A HERO FOR

ME.

THEY SAID WE HAD TO BE

QUIET SO NOTHING ELSE

WOULD HAPPEN.

Reporter: POLICE SAY

THE SHOOTER, IDENTIFIED AS

AUSTIN WYATT ROLANDS, MAY

HAVE HAD A PRIOR

RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE OF

THE VICTIMS, AND SHE

REMAINS HOSPITALIZED WITH

LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES.

THE OTHER BOY IS IN STABLE

CONDITION.

THIS IS SOMETHING WE

TRAIN FOR, PRACTICE, IN A

REALITY WE HOPE WILL NEVER

COME TO FRUITION.

THIS IS OUR WORST

NIGHTMARE.

IF YOU DON'T THINK THIS

CAN'T HAPPEN AT YOUR

SCHOOL, YOU ARE SADLY

MISTAKEN.

Reporter: THIS

INCIDENT COMES AHEAD OF A

NATIONAL MARCH, WHICH WILL

BE HELD THIS SATURDAY, AS

A RESULT OF THE PARKLAND

SHOOTING IN FLORIDA LAST

MONTH.

ERIK ROSALES, CBN NEWS,

MARYLAND.

Mark: FROM ADDING

SHELTERS TO ARMING

TEACHERS, COMMUNITIES ARE

EXPLORING WAYS TO PROTECT

STUDENTS FROM ANOTHER

SCHOOL SHOOTING.

ONE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT

HAS TAKEN MATTERS INTO

THEIR OWN HANDS WITH A

FUTURISTIC TRAINING

SCHOOL.

WE WANT TO WARN YOU THAT

THIS STORY SHOWS SIMULATED

VIOLENCE, AND FOR SOME

THAT MIGHT BE DIFFICULT TO

WATCH.

Reporter: THE

ADRENALIN IS PUMPING, THE

GUNS ARE REAL.

DROP THE GUN!

Reporter: BUT THIS

ISN'T THE LATEST SCHOOL

SHOOTING.

WE'VE GOT AN OFFICER

DOWN.

OFFICER DOWN.

Reporter: IT IS AN

ACTIVE SHOOTER STIMULATOR

IN VIRGINIA.

WHILE WASHINGTON GRAPPLES

WITH THE AFTERMATH OF THE

LATEST SCHOOL SHOOTING,

LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENTS

HAVE TAKEN MATTERS INTO

THEIR OWN HANDS.

13 YEAR VETERAN SERGEANT

JOE BISE HELPS LEAD THE

TRAINING.

THE GUY HAS A GUN.

COULD YOU IDENTIFY HIM

FROM INSIDE?

IS THAT THE SAME GUY THAT

WAS IN THE THEATER?

ONE RAN OUTSIDE.

I THOUGHT WHEN THE ONE

PERSON INSIDE THE THEATER

RAN OFF, HE WAS WEARING A

WHITE SHIRT.

Reporter: ONCE INSIDE

THE SIMULATOR, OFFICERS

FACE 100 DIFFERENT

SCENARIOS WITH NUMEROUS

OUTCOMES.

SOMETIMES IT IS A SCHOOL,

OTHER TIMES, A MOVIE

THEATER.

LET ME SEE YOUR HANDS!

Reporter: SURRENDERED

BY SOUNDS AND PICTURES, A

VIBRATING FLOOR, AND REAL

GUNS FILLED WITH CO2.

IF THEY SHOOT 18

ROUNDS, IF THEY TRY TO

SHOOT IT ANYMORE, THEY'LL

JUST HEAR A CLICK.

Reporter: IT IS AS

CLOSE TO THE REAL THING AS

IT GETS.

IT IS INTENSE.

TWO TIMES IN A ROW I DID

IT, AND MY BLOOD IS STILL

PUMPING AND I'M STARTING

TO SWEAT.

IT IS GOOD TRAINING.

Reporter: THAT

EMISSION IS GOOD.

BISE HOPES THE PROGRAM

PREPARES OFFICERS FOR THE

WORST.

I'VE SEEN PEOPLE SHOT

BEFORE.

IT IS INTENSE.

AND ADD IN CHILDREN,

THAT'S A LOT OF EXTRA

STRESS ON THE DEPUTY OR

THE OFFICER THAT IS

INVOLVED, THAT THEY'RE

GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL

WITH.

Reporter: AND HE ALSO

HOPES IT TEACHES THEM HOW

TO MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS,

LIKE WHEN TO AVOID LETHAL

FORCE.

STOP!

Reporter: THEY

EVENTUALLY WANT CIVILIANS

TO GIVE IT A TRY.

SO I DID.

ALTHOUGH NOTHING COMPARES

TO REAL-LIFE EXPERIENCE,

BISE SAYS HE FEELS BETTER

KNOWING HIS DEPUTIES ARE

ARRIVING TO THE SCENE WITH

THIS KIND OF PREPARATION.

SHOTS FIRED!

SHOTS FIRED!

Reporter: AND THE

COST TO TAXPAYERS?

NOT A CENT.

THIS WAS ALL COVERED BY

MONIES SEIZED FROM ILLEGAL

DRUG OPERATIONS.

AMBER C. STRONG, CBN NEWS.

Mark: THE SHERIFF'S

DEPUTY TOLD CBN NEWS

THEY'RE OPENING UP THE

FACILITY TO OFFICERS IN

SURROUNDING COUNTRIES COUNTIES, AND

SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS

AS WELL.

> IN WASHINGTON, THEY

REMAIN HUNG UP ON FIXING A

TAX CLICH ON GRAIN SALES,

HOW MUCH TO SPEND ON THE

BORDER WALL, AND A TUNNEL

UNDER THE HUDSON RIVER.

THEIN EXCHANGE, SENATE

MINORITY LEADER CHUCK

SCHUMER DEMANDS TAX

SUBSIDIES TO BUILD

LOW-INCOME HOUSING.

THEY CONTINUE TO DISCUSS

HOW MUCH MONEY SHOULD GO

TOWARDS BUILDING A BORDER

WALL.

AND THE PRESIDENT HAS

PRIVATELY THREATENED TO

VETO THE WHOLE SPENDING

BILL IF LAWMAKERS MAKE A

$900 MILLION PAVEMENT ON PAYMENT ON

THE GATEWAY RIVER TUNNEL,

WHICH REPUBLICANS IN NEW

JERSEY AND NEW YORK

SUPPORT.

IF THEY DON'T PASS A

STOP-GAP MEASURE BY

FRIDAY, THE GOVERNMENT

WILL GRIND TO A HALT.

> COMING UP, THE SECRET

THAT MAKES ISRAEL'S

INTELLIGENCE THE BEST IN

THE WORLD.

GO BEHIND THE SCENES OF

ISRAEL'S CONTROVERSIAL

TARGETED KILLS, AND SEE

HOW THE NATION HAS FOUGHT

EXTERMINATION AFTER THIS.

Mark: BOKO HARAM

Mark: BOKO HARAM

MILITANTS HAVE SET FREE

THE NIGERIAN SCHOOL GIRLS

AFTER ABDUCTING THEM A

MONTH AGO.

THEY SAID THEY HAD

RETURNED THE GIRLS, QUOTE,

"OUT OF PITY," BUT WARNED

THEM, DON'T EVER PUT YOUR

DAUGHTERS IN SCHOOL AGAIN.

VILLAGERS SAY ABOUT 72 OF

THE 110 GIRLS HAVE BEEN

RETURNED.

IN 2014, THE GROUP

ABDUCTED 276 SCHOOL GIRLS

FROM CHIBOK, AND ABOUT 100

HAVE NEVER RETURNED TO

THEIR FAMILIES.

> THE JEWISH STATE OF

ISRAEL HAS FOUGHT BACK IN

A NUMBER OF WAYS,

INCLUDING THROUGH THE

CONTROVERSIAL USE OF

ASSASSINATIONS.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS

FROM JERUSALEM, FOR THE

FIRST TIME WE'RE LEARNING

WHY THIS DEADLY TECHNIQUE

PLAYS SUCH A PART IN

ISRAEL'S HISTORY.

Chris: IN 1983, 241

AMERICANS DIED IN THE

MARINE BARACK BOMBING IN

ISRAEL.

THE MASTERMIND BEHIND THAT

BOMBING IS ONE REASON WHY

MANY CONSIDER ISRAEL'S

INTELLIGENCE SERVICES THE

BEST IN THE WORLD.

A NEW BOOK TELLS WHY.

THE BOOK IS CALLED "RISE

AND KILL FIRST: THE

SECRET HISTORY OF ISRAEL'S

TARGETED ASSASSINATIONS."

RONAN BERGMAN TOLD CBN

NEWS THE TITLE COMES FROM

AN ANCIENT JEWISH WRITING

HE HEARD QUOTED.

THEY USED THE PHRASE

FROM THE BABYLONIAN

TABLET, WHICH SAYS, IF

SOMEONE COMES TO KILL YOU,

RISE UP AND KILL HIM

FIRST.

THE MINDSET WHICH SAYS,

WHEN EVERY DECADE YOUR

PRIME NEMESIS, YOUR CHIEF

ADVERSARY, YOUR MAIN ENEMY

DECLARES PUBLICLY THAT ITS

MAIN GOAL IS TO DESTROY

ISRAEL, THERE IS NO OTHER

CHOICE BUT TO RISE UP AND

KILL HIM FIRST.

Chris: FROM SADDAM

HUSSEIN TO YASSER ARAFAT

TO IRAN'S MAKMUD

AHMADINEJAD...

ALL OF THESE, WHEN THEY

ARE YOUR ENEMIES, YOU WILL

DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO

DEFEND YOUR COUNTRY AND

YOUR PEOPLE.

BERGMAN SAYS AFTER THE

HOLOCAUST, JEWS FOLLOWED

THREE LESSONS THAT

PERMEATE ISRAEL'S

INTELLIGENCE SERVICES.

FIRST, THERE WILL

ALWAYS BE A GENTILE THAT

WANTS TO KILL US.

AND SECOND, ALL, OR MOST,

OF THE OTHER JENT TILLS GENTILES WILL

NOT HELP.

AND THIRD, WE NEED TO HAVE

A COUNTRY OF OUR OWN TO

DEFEND, AND TO DEFEND IT

WITH ALL MEANS POSSIBLE.

Chris Chris: IN HIS BOOK,

HE EXPLAINS THE

INTELLIGENCE THAT IS THE

BEST IN THE WORLD.

THERE IS ONLY ONE

THOUGHT: THEY ARE THE

GUARDS ON THE WALL.

BORROWING A PHRASE FROM

"STAR TREK," THEY ARE THE

FINAL FRONTIER, GUARDING

THE SAFETY OF THE COUNTRY

AND THE SECURITY OF THE

CITIZENS OF ISRAEL, AND

JEWS WORLDWIDE, NOT JUST

IN ISRAEL.

THEY BELIEVE THAT IF THEY

DON'T WORK TODAY WITH

EVERYTHING THEY HAVE, THEN

TOMORROW JEWS ARE GOING TO

BE KILLED.

Chris: HIS BOOK TAKES

READERS THROUGH HOW THE

MASOT CHIEF URGED BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU TO USE CYBER

WARFARE AGAINST IRAN

INSTEAD OF BOMBING ITS

NUCLEAR FACILITIES.

AND HE DESCRIBES THE LIM

MAKEELIMINATION OF THE

HEZBOLLAH COMMANDER, THE

MOST-WANTED TERRORIST IN

THE WORLD, AND HOW YASSER

ARAFAT ESCAPED DOZENS OF

ASSASSINATION ATTEMPTS.

WE ASKED ABOUT THE DILEMMA

OF TARGETED KILLING.

IS IT EFFECTIVE, AND IT

IS IS ILLEGALLY AND

MORALLY OKAY?

Reporter: HE POINTED

TO THE SECOND INTIFADA

WHEN SUICIDE BOMBERS

KILLED AND MAIMED

THOUSANDS OF ISRAELIS.

THEY DIDN'T GO AFTER THEIR

BOMBERS, BUT THEIR

LEADERS.

THE BOMB MAKERS, THE

DETONATORS, THE MILITARY

COMMANDS -- THEN THESE

PEOPLE, WHO WERE NOT YET

KILLED, WHO HAD NO PROBLEM

WITH SENDING OTHER PEOPLE

TO THEIR DEATH, WELL, THEY

HAD ANOTHER THOUGHT.

THEY DID NOT WANT TO CHECK

BY THEMSELVES IF THE

OPTION OF THE 72 VIRGINS

IS TRUE OR NOT.

Reporter: AFTER 9/11,

THE RULES CHANGED AND THE

U.S. BEGAN TARGETED

KILLINGS WITH HELP FROM

ISRAEL'S INTELLIGENCE

EXPERTISE.

AND NOW MANY WESTERN

NATIONS FOLLOW THE ISRAELI

MOTTO.

TARGETED KILLINGS REMAIN A

DEBATE, AND ONLY ISRAEL'S

PRIME MINISTER CAN APPROVE

THEM.

BERGMAN SUMS A CHIEF WHO

SUMMED UP THEIR DILEMMA.

AT THE CORE OF WHAT WE

DID EVERY DAY IN MOSUL WAS

THAT DILEMA OF WHAT DOES A

DEMOCRACY UNDER GRAVE

THREAT ALLOW ITSELF TO

TAKE AND DO TO DEFEND ITS

CITIZENS, WHILE IT KNOWS

THAT IT, UNFORTUNATELY,

MIGHT VIOLATE OTHER

THINGS.

Chris: BERGMAN'S BOOK

TOOK EIGHT YEARS TO WRITE.

ON THE EVE OF ISRAEL'S

70th ANNIVERSARY,

BERGMAN, THE SON OF TWO

HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS, SEES

IT AS A CONTRIBUTION TO

THE ONGOING REMARKABLE

STORY.

SOMETIMES I WALK IN THE

STREETS OF ISRAEL AND I

SAY THIS IS REALLY A

MIRACLE.

I THINK WHAT HAS BEEN

ACHIEVED HERE IN THE LAST

120 YEARS CANNOT BE

DESCRIBED AS NOTHING BUT A

MIRACLE, AND I'M SO HAPPY

TO BE PART OF THAT.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Mark: STILL AHEAD,

CHRONIC DISEASES, AND YOU

ARE PUTTING IT IN YOUR

BODY, WHETHER YOU KNOW IT

OR NOT.

HEAR HOW YOU CAN BREAK

YOUR SUGAR ADDICTION AND

RESTORE YOUR HEALTH, NEXT.

Mark: WELCOME BACK.

IF YOU MADE IT YOUR GOAL

IF YOU MADE IT YOUR GOAL

TO BE HEALTHIER IN 2018,

ONE DOCTOR SAYS THERE IS

ONE THING YOU CAN DO TO

TURN THINGS AROUND WITH

YOUR HEALTH.

AS LORIE JOHNSON REPORTS,

THERE IS GROWING EVIDENCE

THAT CONSUMING LOTS OF

SUGAR IS DEADLY AND

ADDICTIVE, AND GIVING IT

UP CAN CHANGE YOUR QUALITY

OF LIFE FOR YEARS TO COME.

Lorie: WHEN YOU THINK

OF ADDICTION, WE TEND TO

FOCUS ON DRUGS AND

ALCOHOL.

BUT MORE DOCTORS SAY WE

SHOULD ALSO CONSIDER

SUGAR.

SUGAR IS THE SOURCE OF

ALL CHRONIC DISEASE.

IT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST

CONTRIBUTORS.

AND WE KNOW THAT SOLID

TUMORS, CANCERS, FEED ON

SUGAR.

Lorie: DR. VINCENT

PEDRE IS ONE OF A GROWING

NUMBER OF PHYSICIANS

WARNING CONSUMING TOO MUCH

SUGAR NOT ONLY FUELS

CANCER BUT ALSO HEART

DISEASE AND ALZHEIMER'S.

LET ME CLARIFY THAT,

BECAUSE WHEN I SAY

CONSUMING TOO MUCH SUGAR,

PEOPLE THINK, I DON'T EAT

DESSERT, SO I DON'T HAVE A

LOT OF SUGAR.

BUT THEN THEY'RE EATING

BREAD, RICE, PASTA, AND

THEY'RE NOT THINKING OF

THAT AS SUGAR.

BUT SUGAR COMES FROM ALL

OF THESE SOURCES.

WE BREAK DOWN THE

CARBOHYDRATES, AND THEY

BECOME SUGAR.

Lorie: AN ESTIMATED

THREE-FOURTHS OF AMERICANS

ARE ADDICTED TO SUGAR AND

DON'T KNOW IT.

BUT FOOD MANUFACTURERS DO.

THEY ADD SUGAR TO NEARLY

EVERYTHING, INCLUDING

THINGS THAT MIGHT NOT SEEM

SWEET, LIKE CRACKERS AND

YOGURT, TO KEEP CONSUMERS

COMING BACK FOR MORE.

MOST PEOPLE MIGHT BE

SHOCKED TO DISCOVER THEY

CONSUME 100 TIMES MORE

SUGAR THAN THEIR ANCESTORS

DID BACK IN THE 1800s.

THAT'S AT THE ROOT OF

FLOWER HEALTH ISSUES.

BLOATING, ABDOMINAL

PAIN, SINUS CONGESTION,

MENTAL FOG, FATIGUE,

ACHINESS, JOINT PAINS --

THESE ARE ALL SYMPTOMS OF

CONSUMING TOO MUCH SUGAR

IN ALL OF ITS FORMS, BUT

PEOPLE DON'T CONNECT THE

TWO.

Lorie: SCIENTISTS USE

LAB ANIMALS TO PROVE SUGAR

IS EVEN MORE ADDICTIVE

THAN ILLICIT DRUGS.

SUGAR STIMULATES THE

SAME PARTS OF THE BRAIN AS

COCAINE.

I TELL PEOPLE THAT SUGAR

IS COCAINE FOR YOUR BRAIN.

AND BY THAT, I MEAN IT AF

AFFECTS THE DOPEMINE

TRANSMITTERS, AND THAT

MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD, THAT

THINGS ARE GREAT.

Lorie: A LITTLE IS

NEVER ENOUGH.

THAT'S THE DESIGN OF

THE NEURO CIRCUIT IN THE

BRAIN.

IT WANTS MORE HITS.

AND IT BECOMES

DESENSITIZED TO SMALL

AMOUNTS.

Lorie: THAT'S WHY HE

RECOMMENDS QUITTING SWEETS

COLD TURKEY.

THE CRAVING IS NOT

GOING TO LAST LONGER THAN

10 TO 20 MINUTES.

SO IF YOU DON'T GIVE INTO

THE CRAVING INITIALLY,

EVENTUALLY IT IS GOING TO

PASS BECAUSE YOUR BODY IS

GOING TO REALIZE IT

DOESN'T REALLY NEED THAT

FOR SURVIVAL.

Lorie: OR AT LEAST

SUBSTITUTING WHOLE FRUIT.

THE CHOCOLATE CHIP

COOKIE IS GOING TO BE A

MUCH FASTER HIT FOR THE

BRAIN.

YOU GET THAT QUICKER

SATISFACTION.

IF YOU HAVE A FRUIT, LET'S

SAY AN ORANGE OR SOME

BERRIES, YOU NEED TO GIVE

IT A LITTLE MORE TIME.

THE FEEDBACK IS GOING TO

HAPPEN, BUT IT IS JUST

GOING TO TAKE A COUPLE OF

MINUTES.

Lorie: WHEN IT COMES

TO SUGAR SUBSTITUTES,

WHILE WHOLE FRUIT IS OKAY,

AVOID ARTIFICIAL

SWEETENERS BECAUSE

RESEARCH SHOWS THEY'RE

ACTUALLY WORSE THAN THE

REAL THING.

IN HIS BOOK, "HAPPY GUT,"

THE DOCTOR EXPLAINS THAT

ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS HARM

OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM BY

DISRUPTING THE BACTERIA IN

OUR DIGESTIVE TRACK.

IT REDUCES A TYPE OF

BACTERIA THAT TENDS TO BE

FOUND IN LEAN, HEALTHY

PEOPLE, AND IT INCREASES

BACTERIA THAT IS FOUND IN

PEOPLE THAT ARE OBESE.

Reporter: STUDIES

SHOW PEOPLE WHO REGULARLY

USE ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS

GAIN MORE WEIGHT.

THEIR INGREDIENTS TRIGGER

INSULIN REACTORS.

IF YOU'RE BECOMING DEAF

AND YOU HAVE TO TURN THE

VOLUME UP HIGHER, YOUR

BODY IS BECOMING DEAF TO

THE INSULIN TRIGGER, AND

IT JACKS IT UP.

IF THE INSULIN IS HIGH, IT

TURNS ON GENES THAT SAY

STORE FAT.

Lorie: THE GOOD NEWS:

INTERMITTENT FASTING CAN

OFTEN REVERSE THAT.

THAT MEANS, FOR INSTANCE,

GOING WITHOUT FOOD FOR 12

HOURS.

THE IDEA IS WHEN YOU'RE

NOT EATING, YOU'RE

ALLOWING YOUR INSULIN

LEVELS TO DROP.

YOU'RE ALLOWING INSULIN

RECEPTORS TO RESET.

AND SO THEN WHAT IS

HAPPENING TOWARDS THE END

OF THE FAST IS YOU'RE

INCREASING INSULIN

SENSITIVITY, SO YOU'RE

MAKING YOUR BODY INSULIN

SENSITIVE AGAIN.

Lorie: INTERMITTENT

FASTING ALSO REPAIRS OUR

CELLS AND TURNS ON LONG

LONGEVITY GENES.

SO IT MIGHT NOT BE EASY,

BUT GIVING UP SWEETS IN

THEIR MANY FORMS,

INCLUDING ARTIFICIAL

SWEETENERS, COULD PAY OFF

BIG TIME.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Mark: AND LOTS OF

ADVICE THERE FROM LORIE

JOHNSON.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH
