It seems that many participants want to overcome the sugar beast! I know how hard it is to stay away from sugar when you are doing it for the first time, but rest assured that it gets easier and within a few days or weeks, sugar no longer has a hold on you. Last year around this time, I found out that I was a rat. Are you a rat?
What on earth am I talking about? If you want to know the sad truth about sugar, read my blog and ask yourself some questions. What I came to realise is that I was addicted to sugar. CLICK HERE TO READ ALL ABOUT IT.
If you are replacing sugar, here are some tips:
1. Have protein at EVERY meal
2. Make sure you get your greens, Chlorophyll regulates blood sugar
3. Stay away from white carbs and if you suspect you might be addicted to sugar, stay away from ALL carbs for at least 2 weeks to allow your blood to adjust and get rid of the sugars in your blood.
