Sugar detox is not an uncommon phrase to hear these days, but knowing how to stop sugar cravings can be a really difficult thing to get the hang of.
Since refined sugars are filling 80% of the items on the shelves in our grocery stores, it’s literally unavoidable these days. Taking the time to get yourself well informed is the first start in successfully cutting back.
Everyone is different when it comes to healthy eating and setting goals. Cold turkey works for those special few people, but for the rest of us, it usually leads to a failure. It seems, the second you put the instant pressure of no sugar on yourself is one second before you crave all the sugar you can find.
From morning coffees to pasta sauces for dinner, sugar is in just about everything these days. So let’s talk through all the different ways you can start making changes toward a sugar balanced life. Finding a happy place when it comes to sugar can greatly benefit your brain, body and mood. There is no better time than the present to get yourself informed and start heading in the right direction.

Today I hesitantly joined a workout class that I have always been inconsistent with going to. I take insane amounts of mental preparation before I step foot in that door. I look for excuses not to go. Oh, it’s started 5 minutes ago. I’ll be too sweaty. What if I fart? Then today I realized something, I am awesome at this class. I love this class. I hate cardio, but I love this class! It is an hour strait of cardio kickboxing moves and I thoroughly enjoy every second of it! So naturally, during some kicks and punches I started wondering why if I like this class so much, does it take so much for me to get psyched about it? Then I started thinking about weight loss shakes.
It brought me back to a skinnier time, when I just started attending this class; the time I was drinking weight loss shakes. It all became so clear to me that I just knew I had to share the wicked truth with anyone willing to listen. Now, I’m not going to just full on bash weight loss shakes, I will give it to you strait. Let’s talk about the good, the bad and the harsh reality that it took me a year to accept (and still keep working on.)
