Holiday Sugar Swap
15 Ways to Manage Your Sugar Intake
The holidays are upon us and the levels of sugar that can enter our system just seems to multiply without us noticing and then what follows?
Can Lead to the Flu...YUCK!!!
As we are entertained at office parties, family events at home and away through the holiday season. We might not think about all the sugar that can add up as you focus on celebrating with friends, associates and family during those special gatherings, one after the other.
You might feel the need to capitalize on that hotel breakfast that is included in the room rate, as well as dig into those office parties designed to thank you for all the hard work you have done throughout the year, and of course you can't leave out those valued traditions of mom's family recipes that might include a sugary pecan pie.
We know the mantra! If you are being entertained or are the entertainer, what is a meal, party, celebration without something SWEET, REALLY SWEET and lots of alcohol.
For those living a regenerative lifestyle, or a diabetic who has good reason to follow good practices when it comes ingesting high sugar foods, it is important to mentally prepare ourselves for any and all sugar breakdowns. The amount of sugar that comes with the holiday season is beyond what anyone normally eats most of the year.
Sugar is hidden in everything, so it is better to be safe than sorry! You mastered the mindset with disciplined achievements over the last 10 months which has taken you to new heights in your health, looks and energy. Don’t let these last two months of the year ruin all that you have done in 2019!
Think about what happened in the past when you didn't think about the sugar content in the food and drinks over the holidays. You remember that awful feeling: bloating; weight gain; the flu; or maybe something else that might have surfaced when an overload of sugar brews inside of you which becomes the food that feeds bacteria, yeast and mold to manifest a perfect environment that triggers dis-ease.
You have grown, matured, expanded your horizons over the years with the understanding sugar is not your friend. You have given up on those instant gratifications, unless it is an occasional healthy choice.
You know it is not worth throwing away years of sweat equity put into your self-care.You know how to make better choices when shopping, cooking and eating that align with your healthy regenerative lifestyle. Honor your hard work and you intentions to feel and look youthful naturally.
