Sugar a powerful addictive drug
Hello everyone, just thought I would do a quick post to show you what to look out for next time you go shopping. I went to the supermarket and took these pics so I hope they are clear enough for you to see.
NUT & FRUIT MIX
So always check in the ingredients list, does it have sugar? Yes. Put it back and grab another one.
Also here is a wonderful article from Karin Adoni, Nutritionist and a Health Coach who wrote this to help support our sugar challenge and give us some more knowledge from a professional perspective.
Lessen the sugar intake by skipping any product that contains sugar (or one of the above aliases) in the first three ingredients.
If a product claims to be "reduced-sugar", it still contains sugar probably less then in the regular version, but its still too much sugar.
So just to wrap it up if you need a little bit of sweetness in your day go for products like stevia, sugar alcohols (eg: vanilla essence) blackstrap molasses or organic/raw local honey. For more info check out I QUIT SUGAR ebook and for those already reading it, what are your thoughts?
Another great article and read is healthy sugars at the organic lifestyle magazine. What do you think? Do you think you can break the SUGAR HABIT?
Happy HUMP DAY everyone and congratulations on making the half way mark!!!! Remember it takes 3 weeks to break a habit. Week one, gone. Welcome WEEK 2!!!! I'll be posting my daily food journal later today. Happy Thursday!!!
