Taming The Sugar Beast

I learned a lot from the reBOOT cleanse and can’t recommend it enough. I feel more like myself. I can now say that I love arugula more than chocolate.  That’s a miracle!  Thanks, Shanti. – Nisaa K., Alameda, CA

IS SUGAR CARAMELIZING YOUR HEART?

  • We build up a tolerance to sugar, just like drugs, so we need more and more and more. 
  • Sugar in any form—honey, agave nectar, table syrup, “natural” —is all equally toxic.
  • Sugar may raise your cholesterol as much as (or even more than) a cheeseburger.
  • The American Heart Association recommends that women keep their sugar intake to less than 100 calories of added sugar a day. This is less than the amount in one can of soda!
  • Sugar has become a “public health crisis” just like alcohol and tobacco.
  • Sugar causes insulin to spike, which can fuel certain types of cancers, including breast and colon cancers.

​It’s time to Tame the SUGAR BEAST…

Step 1: What’s missing in your diet?
ASK: “Am I eating enough leafy greens and whole grains? Am I eating too many starchy foods and not enough protein and fat?”
Step 2: How’s your sleep?
ASK: “Am I able to wake-up without an alarm clock and feel rested?”
Step 4: What fun things do you do outside of work and obligations?
ASK: “Are sweets the main “treat” in my life?”
Step 5: How’s your digestion?
ASK: “Am I feeling bloated, gassy, or off?”
The solution is to gain body awareness and kindness. There’s a reason why our cravings have become a BEAST. Address the imbalance and watch the cravings change.
