End Your Sugar Addiction To Lose Weight & Feel So Much Better!
Health & Fitness
Studies show that sugar is eight times more addictive than cocaine, and Americans are consuming 152 pounds of sugar a year — double what the Spanish eat! Most of it hidden in processed foods and sweetened drinks.
Sugar causes diabetes, over eating, weight gain, cancer, liver disease, raises cholesterol & causes heart disease. The reason you can't stop eating is because you are most likely addicted to refined sugar. You may think that you are not addicted to refined sugar even though you are. If you can have a small dish of ice-cream and then forget about the ice-cream for the rest of the night you are probably not addicted to sugar. If you can walk in on a freshly made batch of chocolate chip cookies and while not being hungry you pass them by, you are NOT addicted to sugar
If you can just say no to a chocolate candy passed to you by a co-worker, you probably are NOT addicted to sugar. If you choose a piece of fresh fruit over a piece of pie, then you are probably NOT addicted to sugar. However, if you not only eat the freshly made chocolate chip cookie (even though you are not hungry) but may just devour the entire plate..good chance sugar addiction is the monkey on your back. If you raid your children's Halloween bag, at night when they are asleep..you are probably addicted to sugar.
If you hide your ____ fill in the blank with candy, cakes, cookies, or ice-cream so that others don't know how much you are eating...you are probably addicted to sugar. Even if you have tried to go on a diet and have substituted "low-fat" foods for "fattening" foods the only thing you are doing is upping your sugar intake which turns into fat. That is why low fat diets fail..the sugar content in low-fat processed foods is astronomical!
The results of sugar addiction are devastating. Not only does one have to deal with the usual suspects like diabetes, obesity and a myriad of other physical ailments but depression and anxiety are also the results of sugar addiction. I don't know what it is in the sugar but sugar makes you crazy. I think most mothers of young children who have had too much sugar will testify to that. The effects of sugar addiction can ruin your whole life and the sad part is that most people don't even know that they are addicted.
Here is what you need to do to lose weight, feel great and become a “normal” person again.
Quit eating ALL refined sugar
Quit eating All refined flour because it becomes sugar
Quit eating All (or as much as possible) processed foods that have anything in them that you can't grow or make from home.
The reason why you should cut out all processed foods is because sugar is in almost everything. It's in peanut butter, mayonnaise, pickles, soy sauce, bread crumbs, bread, ketchup, bacon...you name it it's in it! Look at the labels!
There are so many diets out there telling us we need to cut out fat, or calories, or other things that we actually NEED in our diets. We do not NEED sugar in our diets, in fact...we do much better without it.
A good way to experiment is to try to cut out sugar for 30 days & see how you feel. You should always talk to your doctor before making any dramatic changes to your diet, especially if you have any blood sugar issues.
I quit eating sugar because my energy level seems to drain throughout the day. I was previously sleepy around 3pm & pretty useless as bedtime approached. My weakness is sugary drinks, a sweet coffee drink in the morning, soda in the afternoon, a glass of wine in the evening. I gave those up, along with any sugary foods.
I feel significantly better already, energy is consistent throughout the day now, better sleep, but the surprising part was the rapid weight loss. I wasn't overweight before my sugar challenge, maybe just a little soft in places.
Now my muscle tone is significantly better, my stomach flattened out, and my skin is clearer too. The cravings don't take long to go away, when I was craving sugar, I would take a short walk through the neighborhood. By the time I got home, the craving was gone. I threw the sugar in my house away, quit buying soda, switched to tea in the morning, quit baking sweets. I eat fruit if I'm craving some sugar, but not every day. It is easier to quit than you may think. Quit the silly diets and just quit eating sugar and empty carbs (turn to sugar in the body). This "diet" actually works!
A common effect of sugar...over eating! Here's an informative video: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OMWeRj77aWk
