Sugar is our #1 Recreational Drug of Choice

One of my favorite snacks is frozen yogurt. I always get the fat free variety!

Well…. when you look at the ingredients label and sugar content, I am  better off eating a candy bar!

I thought low-fat yogurt was supposed to be good for me??? Think again……..So now the research is taking a turn and looking at a new villain causing lifestyle diseases: SUGAR!!!!

Sugar, and refined flours create conditions in the brain  similar to what happens with cocaine and heroine. Sugar and flour can affect your brain just like drugs of abuse. Research shows that rats already addicted to cocaine and heroine will SWITCH and turn to sugar, that’s how powerful it is!  It’s the refining process that makes sugar and flour so dangerous to our brains!!

My 5 Day Sugar Cleanse is the  beginning of re-wiring your brain chemistry and down regulating the cravings that you have become so accustomed to. After the 5 days I was amazed that I had no sugar cravings. My brain was so used to being stimulated by that oh so amazing sugar rush.

Within the 5 days I send daily e-mails with information about nutrition, the negative effects of sugar, research, etc. to motivate you throughout the week

EDUCATION  + PRACTICAL APPLICATION + ACCOUNTABILITY = OPTIMAL HEALTH

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”.
