3 Ways to Kick Your Sugar Cravings or Addiction for Good

3 Ways to Kick Your Sugar Cravings or Addiction for Good

Struggling with sugar cravings or is it an all-out sugar addiction? You’ve decided it’s time to slay the sugar monster.

I see it often, gorgeous people like yourself, deciding to take the stand to dial the sugar meter down and the health meter up. After all, you want to enjoy your life and retirement, not have your wings cut by health issues and crazy travel insurance premiums from ill health.

What does being 65, look like for you? I do know you can’t buy your health back. Time to put a preventative framework in place.

Ok….now you’ve made the declaration, “I’m not eating sugar anymore”! Almost instantly you can’t get sugar out of your head and you’re sabotaging yourself all over the place….petrol station, supermarket, coffee catch up..

How did this happen? Firstly, your brain, god and your subconscious doesn’t hear don’t. All they hear is what you say after it.

Never, ever make a declaration in the negative. Like, ‘I won’t eat sugar anymore’. Instead, say ‘I will eat mostly vegetables, fruit, meat, nuts and seeds for the next 30 days’. Ahhh….that feels better already! Not even a sniff of the word sugar in that declaration. It sounds doable and sustainable……and dripping with success.

Now you’re focused on vegetables, meat, fruit, nuts and seeds. Time to clear the house out of everything that isn’t in those food groups, such as lollies, chocolate, soft drink, alcohol (yes it’s a sugar) and refined grain products, such as bread, cakes, doughnuts, pasta.

Now here are 3 hot tips to kicking sugar cravings and addictions for good: Continue reading “3 Ways to Kick Your Sugar Cravings or Addiction for Good” »

Which just isn’t true!

Have you ever been surrounded by sick people at work or home but managed to escape with good health? I know I have…often. Touch wood…. I haven’t had a cold for many years and have pretty much lost count.

Makes you think twice about that germ theory idea…..huh.

Here’s where Antoine Bechamp, Louis Pasteur’s arch-rival comes in, he advocated the Terrain Theory.
