Now, if you over did it on Super Bowl Sunday and feel the sugar cravings coming on…. try these 5 strategies to help you beat those back TODAY.
Good Morning and Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
Today, I want to share a few tips on how to combat the sugar beast. Like most Americans, I used to be addicted to sugar. I was tired all of the time, and needed that afternoon pick-me-up or that quick sugary fix to keep me
going. And despite the jolt of energy most of us experience after eating a sugary treat, the reality is that sugar is terrible for one’s health.
Many people don’t understand how detrimental sugar can be. It’s more addicting than drugs, one of the major toxins, and leads to inflammation and weight gain, depletes the adrenals, and leads to other serious health problems.
Put simply- sugar burdens your body.
If you want to ditch the sugar addiction, it is possible! Let me tell you what worked for me:
1.Start your day with protein. I like to add a protein powder to my morning smoothie because the amino acids balance and stabilize blood sugar, which reduces sugar cravings.
2. Start your day with affirmations and one-minute meditation. I realized I was jumping out of bed and pushing my adrenals to the max right away. Don’t do that. Instead, make time in the morning to create space for yourself–even 5 minutes will change your day.
3.If you are craving something sweet, THINK GREEN, I carry Chlorella Tablets with me and pop a few when I feel that sugar beast rising its ugly head. Chlorella alkalizes the body and shuts down the cravings for sugar.
4. Hydrate daily. Often the body craves sugar when it is dehydrated.
5. Drink TEA- Brew a cup of herbal tea. Yep! Not only am I a water-pusher but a tea pusher too! I swear a cup of tea has magical powers and can curb not just sugar cravings but the munchies too. Licorice root makes a surprisingly sweet tea, and as an added bonus, it feeds and nourishes your adrenal glands, which makes it the perfect pick-me-up when feeling tired from a blood sugar low (one of the reasons we crave sugar).
