Health Tip of the Week: Cut the Sugar

Not only will decreasing sugar consumption lower your risk for developing diabetes, it will also decrease your risk for high cholesterol, hypertension, and weight gain!

Another bonus? Sugar has been shown to decrease your bodies ability to fight colds and flus so cutting it is like a natural flu barrier!

I hope I’ve motivated you because I’ve definitely motivated myself!

For the next 4 days say no to any food that has added sugar, glucose, fructose, cane syrup, agave, honey, etc.

As an added challenge for the ultra ambitious, do not consume artificial sweeteners in place of the real deal. This will help your taste buds get used to foods that are less sweet and have a longer lasting impact on the amount of sugar you crave!

4 days! Go!
