Check the video and tips below!

NUMBER 1 – EAT CARBOHYDRATES (UNLIMITED)
Yes, that’s right. Carbohydrates in droves. Did you know that vegetables are carbohydrates? From them you can eat all you want. Unlimited refills! I refer specifically to non-starchy vegetables, such as greens, the broccoli family (cauliflower, kale, collards, etc.), asparagus, green beans, mushrooms, onions, zucchini, tomato, fennel, aubergines, artichokes, peppers , etc.
Also eat fruit in small portions, once a day for about 14 days. Avoid potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squash and beets – only for 14 days.

NUMBER 2 PLAN YOUR RECIPES
It is easier to follow a program when you have a list of ingredients and recipes that you can work from. In my sugar detox program I personally check all the ingredients and recipes to make sure they were all low in sugar. Choose a day in the week to plan your recipes so you know what ingredients to use and avoid thinking about other full of sugar. Also keep a contingency plan food around special events such as birthday parties and social events.

NUMBER 3 – ELIMINATES THE RISKS BY FINDING SUPPORTERS
When I decided to change my lifestyle and try detoxification, I told all my friends and colleagues who supported me very much and inspired many to take some of the advice I explained. This kind of support helped both me and them and became an indispensable weapon for success.

NUMBER 4 HELP YOURSELF BY HELPING OTHERS
If you observe or participated in any recovery program, the last step is to help others and teach them through your experiences. We always hope that by sharing our experiences, they inspire others, which is a powerful positive feedback loop which naturally will keep you satisfied, without sugar!

NUMBER 5 – REDUCE STRESS
If you have stress, your hormones go crazy. When cortisol (the stress hormone) rises gives you more hungry, it promotes the storage of fat in the stomach and can lead to type 2 diabetes and other chronic conditions. Try doing deep conscious breathing exercises. This is something you can do anywhere, anytime.

NUMBER 6 – SLEEP MORE
Less sleep affects your appetite and makes hormones that you crave more sugar and carbohydrates. You need more energy if you do not sleep, so you head rapidly absorbed sugars. Sleep is the best way to fight the urge to overeat and manage stress.

 

This is dubbed the SWEET POISON

Sugar addiction: Is it Real?
Here’s a surprising fact: Sugar is eight times as addictive as cocaine.

Being addicted to sugar is a biological disorder, driven by hormones and neurotransmitters that take you to need more and more sugar and take you to eat in excess uncontrollably. This is the reason why almost 70% of Americans and 40 percent of children are overweight.

I have lots of tips to help us get rid of sugar addiction. Too many in fact, that I’m dividing them into 2 videos. Here are the first 6!

NUMBER 1 – KEEP TRACK OF YOUR SUGAR INTAKE
About 26% of sugars added to our diet comes from prepared foods, such as ketchup, pasta, salad dressing and canned fruits. Keep a journal with all the foods you consume in a day to keep track of your sugar intake.

NUMBER 2 – WHAT YOU LEARN AND WHAT YOU CAN NOT EAT
It’s super important to have an idea of ​​what foods you can eat to replace those you leave behind. Make a list of the foods you need to avoid and one of the food by which you are replacing.

NUMBER 3 – DO NOT DRINK THE CALORIES
More than 40% of all sugar comes from sweetened drinks and sodas. These liquid calories are worse than the solid food with sugar or flour.

NUMBER 4 CLEAN YOUR KITCHEN
Some of us find it easier to avoid cravings than others. If you have sensitivity or are weak-willed, clean your kitchen and remove anything that might serve as a weakness. Eliminate as much temptation as possible.

NUMBER 5 PREPARE FOR EMERGENCIES
You never want to be in a food emergency when blood sugar is falling and you are in a “food desert” as an airport, office or fast food restaurants. In your travels or when you do errands, always carries a small bag with almond butter and apple slices or celery. You can also take walnuts, pumpkin seeds or sunflower.

NUMBER 6 – PREPARE SNACKS BEFOREHAND
Nobody has time to prepare snacks whenever we’re running around. Rather than stress yourself every time you go out, take an hour once a week to prepare bags of healthy snacks and keep them in the cupboard and fridge. When you’re ready to go, just put a bag in your bag and go.
