I probably won’t make a lot of friends over this post. Whether you know it or not, Sugar can be one of the most toxic things for our bodies. There are numerous studies and articles out there that suggest it’s one of the main reasons we, as a society, have so many health issues, including obesity. All my life I was lucky to not have to worry about putting on extra weight and I didn’t have much of a sweet tooth but now that I am in hardcore cancer prevention mode (I’m not sure why everyone else wouldn’t be also for their own Health), but I still really make sure I keep a close on the amount of sugar that enters my body.
I can hear some people saying “but some sugars are better than others”. It’s obviously very important to avoid the refined, white sugar ($hit) but I think it’s also important to limit others as much as possible.
Of course it’s not easy to kick the habit (it’s one of the hardest addictions to beat)… but here’s a site with a list of things you can do to kick the habit – http://www.mnn.com/food/healthy-eating/blogs/12-tips-for-kicking-the-refined-sugar-habit
Does anyone else have any suggestions on how to avoid eating sugar in our diets? Please leave a comment below to help others if possible and if you are eating sugar, please give yourself and your diet a good hard look. It’s serious stuff!
Lots of love,
