Sugar is a topic you hear me talk about a lot around here and there’s a couple of reasons why. First of all, I get new visitors who have never been here before on a daily basis and thus it is often a new concept for them. Since it is one of the cornerstones of my approach to health I must present it frequently to newcomers.
Secondly, for many of my faithful readers, the serious impact on health caused by sugar is also a new concept and for many people new concepts are difficult to accept. New concepts are often dismissed the first time someone hears them. It often takes several exposures to a new concept before it clicks for someone or they are able to see the truth in it.
Even when it does click or they think it is true, most of society tells them otherwise, so they doubt themselves or the information they read and get caught back up in society’s denial. It’s just easier to go with the flow.
Getting sugar out of the diet takes a great deal of reprogramming of the mind and breaking free of brainwashing and conditioning that we have grown up with over a lifetime. That reprogramming is accomplished in large part by having repeated exposure to the new idea.
Last, but not least, change is a process. Even when someone wants to stop eating sugar, it usually takes time to accomplish the task and there will be a couple steps backwards now and then before reaching the goal. This is all human nature. So if you’re one of my faithful readers, and you’re thinking “oh here she goes again,” I wanted to make you aware that there is a method to my madness.
The reason I place so much emphasis on the removal of sugar from the diet is simple. Most people are not aware how this one simple step can make such a significant impact on both their physical and emotional/mental health. In my own life, this is the single most powerful change I ever made and was a major turning point.
With health care costs through the roof and many people struggling financially, this is an extremely effective method of self-care that costs you absolutely nothing and requires no visits to the doctor. There is nothing more empowering.
Although breaking the sugar habit offers both short and long-term benefits and some of the benefits may go unnoticed, you can usually see immediate improvements in areas like improved mood, decreased levels of anxiety, tension and stress, clearer thinking, and a boost in immune system.
Declaring independence from sugar can lead to more freedom in the following conditions, headaches, acne, irritable bowel, crohn’s, MS, asthma , depression, anxiety disorders, paranoia, arthritis, hyperactivity, concentration, problem solving, hypoglycemia, blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure, adrenal fatigue, memory, hormone imbalance, addiction, alcoholism, infections, food sensitivities, common aches and pains, irritability, chronic fatigue, PMS, compulsive overeating, obesity or weight management, type 2 diabetes, insomnia, loss of energy, insulin resistance and many more.
You’ll experience better brain function, a stronger and healthier immune system, gastrointestinal system, metabolic system, nervous system and cardiovascular system.
On the other hand, many people are aware they shouldn’t be eating sugar, but they just can’t seem to resist its seductive power. The reason people struggle so intensely to remove sugar from the diet is because they are dealing with a powerful addiction.
In order to be successful in declaring independence from sugar in your life, you must be armed with the adequate resources to reach the goal, which is exactly what you will find in my “Break Your Sugar Addiction Today Toolkit.”
Just like alcoholism and drug addiction, overcoming sugar addiction and sugar cravings is a complex and multi-faceted task. Each of these facets must be addressed in order to be successful. However, once achieved, the benefits will be many and you can bask in your new-found freedom.
Regardless of which health condition you face, you simply can’t go wrong by making this one simple change in your diet.
