This week we are kicking off our Sugar Detox! I could not be more excited to engage with the amazing ladies in the group as we each work toward our goals and enjoy the transformation! In the beginning, we ask ourselves why we’re embarking on this journey. Answers vary from weight loss to wanting to be healthier overall, and various reasons in between. Some women join because they love the challenge. Whatever their goals are, it brings me joy to be the one showing them their inner strength and helping them get there!

Why should you embark on this journey?

Sugar is responsible for sparking or worsening countless issues to include:

  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Joint Pains
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Brain Fog
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Inflammation
  • Plaquing Arteries
  • Acidic Overdose
  • Dementia
  • Alzheimer’s

Sugar is everywhere. It is commonly known to make your kids a little crazy and give you a surge of energy when you’re spiraling into a midday slump. People typically think “sugar is bad, but a piece of pie here and there never hurt anyone. A little sugar here and there is okay. Our problem is that the Standard American Diet (SAD) offers very few breaks from sugar. Desserts and candies are not the only sources of sugar in your diet. Processed and pre-packaged foods-even so-called health food- have significantly larger amounts of processed sugars than you may think.

Sugar goes by over 200 different names at a minimum.

  • Cane Sugar
  • Molasses
  • Maltodextrin
  • Caramel
  • Malitol
  • Sweet Sorghum
  • Concentrate
  • Evaporated Cane Juice
  • Agave
  • Anything ending in -ose (Dextrose, tagatose)
  • Syrups (Cane, brown rice, caster, etc.)
  • Anything ending in -tol (Sorbitol, erythritol)
  • Rebiana
  • Neotame
  • Saccharin
  • Thaumatin
  • And so many more

So what CAN you eat?!

The key to making any change in your diet is first, looking at it as something you get to do instead of something you have to do. You get to eat foods rich in protein, healthy fats, and fiber. A few great replacements for sugar include:

  • Dates
  • Bananas
  • Green Apples
  • Raw/Manuka Honey

Sugar detoxing may not be easy, but once you get over the first week or two, you’ll lose your cravings for overly sweetened foods.
