A dump of sugar, oh say in the form of a handful of jelly beans, puts your pancreas into overdrive dishing out insulin. The insulin moves that sugar out of your bloodstream and into storage...for later. This my friends is the roller coaster. We've all been on it. It happens quickly, and cue "the crash".
It's not just in the form of all that stuff from the kid's baskets yesterday. It's all the refined, simple carbohydrates that make up the majority of the diet Americana. Everything processed, in a box, on the shelf essentially causes the same rise and fall in our delicate physiological ecosystem.
Cutting it out is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3!
- Ditch the foods with sugar (and any sneaky derivation thereof) in the ingredient list.
- Replace with "nature's dessert" - fruit, 3 fist sized servings per day.
- Couple your fruit with a serving of protein to slow its digestion.
You'll feel better immediately, you'll experience less abdominal bloating, and having a more regular blood sugar level will help your mood too. Remember our body wants things nice and even, smooth, consistent and reliable. Eating healthy meals spread throughout the day does just the trick. Should you go on a sugar fast? It depends on how great you want to feel!
