Sugar is the secret.
The problem is sugar.
You might be eating too much, probably without even realizing it.
The cool news is, once you cut down on all that sugar the weight will fall off quickly.
I have been teaching this stuff to people in Toronto for over 10 year now. So, I know it works.To help you, here are 5 do’s and don'ts.
🚫1. Stop This: Candy
Nothing gets refined sugar circulating through your body quicker than a fistful of candy—and if you’re in the habit of eating candy daily then your body will crave it.
Candy has almost no nutritional value, other than caloric energy, and will end up as extra belly fat.
✅Do This: Instead of candy, try a handful of unsalted nuts, a few pieces of unsweetened, dried fruit, or a small square of very dark chocolate (at least 72% cocoa content).
🚫2. Stop this: Baked Goods
Cake, cookies, brownies, pastries, donuts, and pies are filled with sugar. While these may not taste as sweet as candy, the combination of refined sugar and white flour will spike your blood sugar just the same.
Very much like candy, regularly eating baked goods may become a habit. Break yourself of this and you’ll find the number on your scale going down rather than up.
✅Do This: Put down the cookie and reach for a piece of fresh, seasonal fruit. Fruit is nature’s candy and is every bit as blissful as a slice of cake. Fruit will actually start to taste sweet again once you cut down on sugar and get rid of the overstatuation in your body.
🚫3. Stop: Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt
Nothing makes you feel as happy and carefree as a bowl of creamy ice cream…until that ice cream makes its permanent home on your waist. Very much like candy, ice cream has few nutritional benefits.
✅Do This: Mix unsweetened, nonfat Greek yogurt with a scoop of vanilla protein powder and mix in some chopped, fresh fruit. This creamy delight is much lower in sugar than ice cream and tastes amazing!
🚫4. Stop Soft Drinks.
A regular can of soda pop contains the equivalent of 10 packets of sugar. That’s more sugar than you should consume in a full week!
Soft drinks are something that you get into the habit of drinking and then do without thinking. The good news is that a habit can be broken and then replaced with something healthier.
✅Do This: Take soda pop out of your diet. Period. There are plenty of other, healthier, beverages available to you. Try the recipes for Spa Water below.
🚫5. Stop this Sweet: Blended Drinks
Smoothies, blended coffee drinks and milkshakes are all tempting treats, especially in hot summer months. Don’t give in to the temptation!
These items are even more deadly than most treats since they are consumed through a straw and don’t make you feel full. Let me assure you that even though you don’t feel full, like you would after a piece of cake, you’re still taking in a bunch of sugary calories.
✅Do This: Make your own healthy blended drinks at home by using natural sweeteners like stevia, or simply by using fruit. Blend a delicious protein shake with ice, milk and protein powder.
A great thing to remember is that once you’ve fallen out of the habit of eating sugar, your body will no longer crave it.
This means that each day spent in discipline will bring you closer to the day that sugar no longer has a hold over you. Imagine how much happier and healthier you will be!
Eating healthy is half of the battle when it comes to fitness and wellness. The other, equally important, side is maintaining a regular, challenging exercise program.
