If you are like most households in this country – you have been knee-deep in candy – for days (maybe weeks) now. I even walked by a bowl of Halloween candy at the gym today (say whaaat?)!! It seems to be everywhere!
And it is a slippery slope….you think, hey “just one itty bitty little candy bar” can’t hurt, right? …and it certainly wouldn’t…if we actually stopped at one. But soon we are reaching in the candy bowl over and over, and the wrappers are piling up (I know, because I have been there, done that myself in the past).
Have you tried to give up sugar before, only to get sucked back in?
Studies show that sugar is as addictive as a drug, and in addition to all that candy, most packaged and processed foods contain lots of hidden sugar! So it is no surprise that the majority of Americans are just getting too much of it and find it next to impossible to stop!
Yes, You Can Do This!
A few years ago right around this time – I had just had it with sugar. I was tired of needing to eat every couple of hours or I would get hangry (hungry-angry). I was tired of feeling sluggish every afternoon, and tired of wondering who that old lady was looking back at me in the mirror. I was tired of always needing something sweet after dinner. I guess I was just tired of being…tired. The best part? I was simply not prepared for how AMAZING breaking up with sugar would actually be!
I used to think sugar was just empty calories – but it is much more sinister than that. High sugar diets not only wreak havoc on our metabolism, moods, energy, and immunity; but over time – they can increase our risk of many diseases (including cancer, heart disease, and one of the fastest growing diseases in this country – non-alcoholic fatty liver disease). And if that is not enough, they create AGEs (advanced glycation end products) – which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin (I know, I wish I knew about that one when I was in my 20s!).
So last year around this time, I decided to create my one week eCourse – Break Up with Sugar.
It teaches you WHY you should ditch the sugar and HOW to do it (and not go too crazy)!!
And right now, for a limited time – I am offering 50% off the price (ends Nov. 10th)!!
What you Get:
I also share a lot of my personal history with sugar, and even my break up letter that I wrote to sugar (yes, humor is key)!
How about you? Are you OVER the sugar? Ready to take back the control?
Breaking up with sugar could very well be the best thing you do for your metabolism, mood, immunity, sleep, energy, and overall health.
Breaking up with sugar is the first of 10 keys in my upcoming book The Perfect Metabolism Plan (Red Wheel/Conari, March 2015). I pushed really hard to have it be the first key (even though my editor thought it was a bit much to hit people with the sugar bomb right off the bat), because I know that it is simply not possible to optimize your metabolism and health when your blood sugar is out of control.
Maybe you are not even hooked on candy…. there are many ways we can be spiking our blood sugar. Maybe it is the wine, sodas, fruit juice, lattes, and even low sugar foods like pretzels – which was “my sugar” for years (read: Are Pretzels Worse Than a Candy Bar?).
Are you over it? But not sure how to break free from the sugar?
