SUGAR DETOX- DAY 2!

6 Comments 02 May 2011

 

Hi Detoxers,

The greatest part about being on the challenge is  changing the way you are eating, and looking to make long lasting changes for the betterment of their health and wellness. Who knows how this is going to snowball. There is a ripple effect whenever someone is on to something big- and ridding sugar from your diet is BIG!

All I can say is “Hooray to US!”

A major part of the success of this challenge is your “e-mail buddy”.

I’m still pairing people up, so send me a note if you need help!

I’m  receiving such exciting feedback  on how  women on the Detox are beginning to gain awareness of what foods are being put in their bodies. More awareness than ever before!
For instance, a bite of “this” and taste of “that,” – usually the thought was, oh, its only a little piece of cookie…cake..etc..
Most people never realized the hidden sugars that are found in many foods like breads, dressings and white rice sushi.

Here is the question of the day:

Can I use cane juice or cane fiber? How about honey?

One hundred grams of dried cane juice is pretty much the same thing as 100 grams of other sweeteners, no matter what you call it. Dehydrated cane juice is sugar. It simply sounds like a whole food.”

Every commonly used sweetener is as bad as sugar when it makes up a significant part of the diet.

Albeit, evaporated cane juice does not undergo the same degree of processing that refined sugar does.
It’s benefits is that it does retain trace vitamins and minerals.
Cane juice has the same amount of calories as sugar but since its  sweeter, you might get away of using less of it than sugar-which is always good!

There are mixed reviews about whether honey is better than sugar. It depends on the individuals health and condition. Consider: Honey is a sweet, thick  fluid made by honey bees from the nectar of flowering plants. Honey is sweeter than sugar ( almost 100% sucrose), has more calories than sugar and raises the blood sugar even more than white sugar. The plus side is that  raw honey reportedly has medicinal benefits and contains enzymes and small amounts of minerals and B-complex vitamins.

Whether you’re talking about cane sugar, honey, barley malt or sucanat , they’re all primarily simple sugars, simple carbohydrates.
People should understand that, if they’re eating 150 pounds of sugar a year and you change that to 150 pounds of barley malt, you’ll have the same problems with your immune system and blood sugar levels you would have if you are eating the sugar.

The bottom line is- use these sweetener substitutes sparingly!

From my own experience, I  use as much “real” food  sweeteners as possibly. Eating a sweet potato  is a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth. If someone told me that last year, I would of thought they were crazy. A sweet potato vs. Oreos? No way!  I can assure you, its works. If you are new to detoxing from sugar it will take some time to retrain your taste buds. When you can start tasting the sweetness of a carrot or even the sweetness in brown rice, thats when you know you’ve got it.

Until then, use sweeteners such as Agave, Stevia, honeycomb raw honey,-use it sparingly and if needed. Notice how you may need  a certain amount of sweeteners on week 1, and less of it by week 4 and so on.

Here is  typical food plan on a Sugar Detox:

Breakfast- steel cut oatmeal with greek plain yogurt and berries.

Lunch- Ezekiel wrap bread with black beans and brown rice, chumus

Dinner- vegetable soup, tossed salad, olive oil and lemon dressing topped with fish (or protein of your choice)

2 snacks per day if needed, examples-  apple with some walnuts, seasonal fruits, carrots.., yogurt with fruit

Comment below on with your progress!!

Please Note: This is a general guide on how to eat more healthy food and omit processed and refined flours and sugars.

It does not take the place of private counseling. My goal on this site is to bring awareness to eating in a healthy and balanced way; to lose weight, feel great and ward off diseases that so many Americans are faced with.

Good News!

I am offering a free health history evaluation in person, or by phone for those who are interested in receiving individualized recommendations and nutrition advise based on your goals.

Its my pleasure to help you!

Hello Sugar Detoxers!

Please SIGN UP now to receive your free daily sugar detox newsletter!

Can you go a day…. a week ….. or how about a month without eating sugar?

I did it and so can you!

As the Passover holidays culminate, we, as Jewish women are ready to give back to ourselves by focusing in on what our bodies need right now. So, if you have been thinking about making an empowering life changing event to improve your health and well being- then this “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge” is for you.  Join me with hundreds of women to take control of their bodies, this Monday May 2, 2011  as we will begin our “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge.”

Americans are faced with all kinds of addictions- and sugar is at the top of the list. The worst part about it, is that sugar is an addiction that usually begins as a child and can last a life time.

Through that time period, the sugar consumers are faced with  the #1 health challenge -which is to simply stop eating sugar!
I know the Jewish women WANT to rid sugar from there lives, but not everyone has the courage to do so.
Here is a little help to kick this habit- who knows- it might even be for good!
Monday May 2, is our start date to kick the Sugar Addiction for a 30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge.

COMMENT BELOW IF YOU WILL BE JOINING US ON OUR SUGAR DETOX!!!

Sunday May 1st (my birthday) is preparation day.

This is the day to tell all your friends and family. Everyone can be included!
Proper planning is the key to success.
So let’s begin:
#1. You will need a Sugar Detox Buddy.
This is the person who you will speak or e mail  on daily basis, for support, questions or just to help you through a hard day.
#2. Go over your pantry and start reading ingredients. If the ingredients are:
Sugar, High fructose corn syrup,  brown sugar, cystallized sugar, fructose, maltose, sorbitol,evaporated cane juice,syrups, xylotol or anything ending in “ose”- than that food  is not for you!
There are many names for sugar- if your not sure- simply google it- ask your support buddy- or ask me!
#3. Be aware for hidden sugars as in; mayonnaise, ketchup, salad dressings, sauces, corn flake crumbs,marinades and fat free foods.
These foods almost always are filled with sugar.
#4. Alternative sweetness to use:

  1. Stevia – zero calories(make sure its 100% Stevia)
  2. Agave (60 cal per teaspoon)
  3. Raw Honey-(More Medicinal)

#5.  If there are certain  foods that  are a temptation to you (like home baked chocolate chip cookies are for me) throw it in the garbage…give it to your house keeper…sell it on ebay…….just get it out of your house!
Most Important Tip:
#6 Mentally prepare yourself. If you want to succeed-you need to believe that you can do this!
Remember: “The most important things said- are the things you say to yourself”

Passover Coke

Passover Coke

1 Comment 28 March 2010

Each year, Coca-Cola makes Coke with real sugar for American Jews to drink during Passover. Normal  everyday Coke contains high fructose corn syrup, an ingredient that has been getting slammed in the media, but one that is much cheaper than sugar.

There are a group of “Real Coke” enthusiasts who buy it in bulk during Passover because they want to drink Coke with no high fructose corn syrup! Some people even seek out the sugar Coke in small Mexican restaurants and grocery stores! Sugar was part of the Original Coke recipe until the 1980’s when they started slowly switching over to HFCS because it was cheaper!

Does this Coke really taste better? You can read a one blogger’s thoughts on his Coke for Passover review here.

Look for the Coke with the yellow cap; Stock up now and drink it all year!!
