We all know sugar has a bad rap and for very good reasons. Sugar depletes your body, raises risk of diabetes, heart disease, contributes to obesity, asthma, mood disorders, sleep issues and the list goes on! Of course no one forces us to eat sugar, and yet... we cannot stop, as if it were a drug and it's giving us our fix.
First off, I'd like you to aware that sugar is in most of the foods you consume on a daily basis. Store bought Juices are loaded with sugar, your breads, pasta sauces and condiments all contain sugar. These items usually contain High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) as well, but that's another post all together.
Being aware of what's in your food is a first step to controlling what you are putting into your body. Sugar is labeled under a variety of names in your food.
The next time you're eating something you think is healthy, check to see if any of these sugar labels are part of your ingredients:
High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
Fruit Juice or Concentrate
Anything with Syrup
and... these are not even all of them!
Just remember, Sugar is not working with your body, but against it.
Take the Sugar Challenge for 7 days and see if you don't feel better after eliminating all sugars from your diet. If you have headaches within the first few days, that's your body detoxing. Drink extra water and eat extra green vegetables during this time. Skip the coffee, switch to tea and skip the what? You got it.. SUGAR!
YOU CAN DO IT!!!
