Sugar High Fix

Great point brought up this morning in the studio about sugar, you have to know how much sugar you are getting throughout the day, period!!  Not only do you have to watch the sugar like sweets and candy but more importantly you have to understand and know what sugar is in the products that you buy.

My rule of thumb for people who are STUCK, FRUSTRATED, DISGUSTED with how much body fat they have is to count how many sugar grams they consume in 3 days.  You can eat what you desire but do not average more than 50g sugar/day

Depending on what body type you have could determine how much sugar you can get away with.  I have a sweet tooth at 3 o’clock and like a drug-addict I need my sugar fix,  but that’s not because I’m hungry, that’s because I’m just CRAVING!!

So what satisfy’s your sugar fix and how many grams does it take?

Worst Soda

#16 Sunkist

(1 bottle, 20 fl oz)

Wait . . . but aren’t all sodas equally terrible? It’s true they all earn 100 percent of their calories from sugar, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still varying levels of atrocity. Despite the perception of  ealthfulness, fruity sodas tend to carry more sugar than their cola counterparts, and none make that more apparent than the tooth-achingly sweet Sunkist. But what seals the orange soda’s fate on our list of worsts is its reliance on the artificial colors yellow 6 and red 40—two chemicals that may be linked to behavioral and concentration problems in children.

I want to teach people about “body awareness” and how to lose body fat, which starts by “detoxing” the body of extra fats, carbohydrates and sugars.  A person has to be mindful of what goes into the body and how much they want vs. what they need.  There is no other way.

Eat to live, not live to eat.  Choose between quality and quantity.  Quality is more nutritious for the body.  Quantity is to hard on the body because of toxic fat stores.

You have to negate the extra calories (sugar/candy)from the diet if they can not be eaten with control.  You have to be a responsible cookie owner!!

You have to be in control and accountable for your self.  if you think you need help, help yourself.

Self help is the best help.
