I just had an interesting conversation with one of my clients that blew both of our minds...
This client has been showing up to her workouts, getting plenty of sleep and even tracking her food intake, but she's struggling with low energy, constant hunger and a scale that won't budge!
Curious to see what was wrong, I asked to see her food journal and the answer was right there glaring both of us in the face!
It’s SUGAR! 🍬🍬🍬
I honestly think if sugar had to be reviewed by the FDA today that it would be classified as a drug and not a food. If you have ever tried to eliminate sugar from your diet before then you are well aware of the withdrawal side effects and the intense cravings you can have. Once you go sugar free for a few days, your natural energy levels return and you are free from the sugar dependency cycle. I think it feels amazing to be sugar free and you become much more sensitive to sugar which helps you eat less and less!
Most people know that added sugar is not that good for you ... but here are a few things you might not know about why sugar is such a progress killer!
⛔ It affects your hormones, your energy, your mood, and even your waistline!
⛔ Cutting back isn't easy. Not only can cutting out added sugar cause cravings, but it can also leave you feeling tired, blah, and worse.
⛔ It has a way of sneaking its way into all sorts of foods, and is pretty much everywhere in our food supply.
⛔ Artificial sugars with zero calories can be even worse for you and wreak more havoc on your health AND your waistline than sugar itself.
