Sugar Detox Series PODCAST – PART 2



Is sugar addictive? A study published is the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests  that higher sugar, higher glycemic foods can be addictive. If you are among those whose brain chemistry and taste buds have been hijacked by the food industry (up to 70 percent of us, including 40 percent of children), then this podcast will explain how to get your biochemistry back on track .

How to Kick Your Sugar Addiction

13Tonight I am presenting my DAY 3 Teleclass of my October Sugar Buster Group. I hold these groups every month and the Wednesday call is my favorite call because we talk about the science of Sugar Addiction and how we came to be addicted to this powerful white powder! Many people think it is just about willpower, but they are so wrong (and probably have never had an issue with sugar!)

The problem that arises in coping with sugar addiction is that sugar is in so many common foods now, it’s practically impossible to cut it out completely. You can’t eat a sandwich without getting sugar from the bread or the mayo. You can’t eat a salad without getting sugar from the dressing.

Beating sugar addiction may seem like a hopeless battle, but just like any drug addiction, you have to have a structured plan to win the war. I make no claims that it will be an easy battle. Here are 2 tips I will be sharing tonight.

TIP # 1  Eat protein with breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but do you know why? Breakfast is the meal that will make or break you for the rest of the day. Your first meal must create blood sugar stability that will carry you to the next meal without sugar cravings.

TIP # 2  Eat protein with every meal. As soon as your blood sugar is thrown out of whack, you will be off the wagon again. Eating protein with each meal prepares your body for the increase of serotonin production and keeps your blood sugar stable throughout the day.

REGISTER HERE for my next Sugar Buster Telegroup that begins right after HALLOWEEN!!! We begin Monday November 2. I will have a special FREE GIFT called “How to Break Free From Sugar Cravings  for Good”.

 

Sugar is the New Fat

CAPRIL SUNFor so long we were brainwashed to think fat was bad and we have been on a fat free binge. Guess what? We are getting fatter and sicker! All this time we were increasing our consumption of sugar and not realizing that sugar in all its forms is the root cause of most of the chronic disease such as heart disease, obesity, cancer, dementia, type 2 diabetes, depression, and even acne, infertility and impotence.

The average American consumes about 22 teaspoons every day and our kids consume about 34 teaspoons every day. Sugar is eight times as addictive as cocaine and the way to “detox” from sugar needs to be a biological shift. It is not just about willpower.

Here are my Top Ten Tips Tips to Begin a Detox from Sugar (taken from my book Is Your Lifestyle Killing You?

  1. Food Plan – eat protein with every meal and lots of vegetables.
  2. Exercise every day to support insulin sensitivity.
  3. Sleep well.
  4. Digestive health is essential. Take a probiotic.
  5. Take pharmaceutical-grade cellular support supplements.
  6. Seek support from others who know about sugar addiction.
  7. Manage your stress!
  8. Drink lots of water.
  9. Shop around the OUTSIDE walls of supermarket. The hidden sugars are usually on the shelves in the  middle of the store.
  10. If you need a JUMPSTART to biologically shift those sugar cravings, you can join my next Sugar Buster Group beginning May 12, 2014. Just CLICK HERE to join.
