Hello Sugar Detoxers!
How are you doing? Today is Day 18 on our Sugar Detox. Is it getting hard for you to keep up this regimen of eliminating refined sugars? I’m sure that it is! It’s so unfortunate for us that the USDA named sugar as the number 1 food additive. It’s added to pizza, hot dogs, boxed rice, soup, crackers, flavored yogurts… We simply cannot get away from the substance that literally destroys lives. I know that is a bold statement to make- but it is a fact that becomes more clear as time passes. Newspapers and magazines are making headlines on articles about sugar. If we all know how bad sugar is for our health, don’t you think that the American government would know this also? Wouldn’t it be amazing if the government put a ban on sodas and soft drinks. I know I am sounding idealistic and unrealistic, but before any reality there is always a dream. So lets keep dreaming! How wonderful would it be if we no longer have to witness our children downing a can of Coke? It breaks my heart to know that going to a children’s birthday party means coming home with a candy bag that can basically feed the whole block.
As many times as we discuss the negative effects of sugar I can’t stress enough that this is real. This is an epidemic that is affecting America, yet we still allow it in our homes.
Let’s do an awareness experiment. Go into your food pantry and see how many items have sugar or white flour in the ingredients. It’s mind boggling how we bring this drug into our homes and actually serve it as food. My suggestion is to fill the fridge with the best high quality fruits and vegetables. Always have a platter cut and ready to eat, so when you or a family member is ready to munch- its there for you -ready to eat!
I know Sugar Detox is pushing the comfort level for many people. Honestly- its asking a lot from me! We are surrounded by sugar laden foods almost everyday and are constantly troubled with trying to stay away from sugar.
Let’s create power in numbers! Let’s make a deal- if you stay away from all your sugar favorites, then I’ll stay away from my favorites! Let’s make this coming week, the best week that we can. If you cave in- don’t worry! Just get back on track right now. Eat whole foods and I know you will feel great, look awesome and help your health and wellness in its most natural way.
