Why do we need to ditch the sugar?

Sugar is one of the most inflammatory substances we can put in our body. Yes, there are others that are more inflammatory but this one is killing us as a society. It's added into EVERYTHING that is considered shelf stable- pasta sauces, cereals, canned fruits & veggies, granola bars, cereal bars- Think kid food & there's added sugar.

So, what does sugar really do to our bodies?

When you eat refined sugar, such as processed foods like so many popular snacks, drinks and the likes, it can cause a flood of dopamine (a brain chemical that helps us feel happiness or pleasure) in the center of the brain.

This is why people who eat lots of refined sugar find themselves reaching for it more and more―because it will produce these happy feelings. Americans are at an all-time high of sugar consumption with the average adult consuming close to 146 pounds PER YEAR.


Marketing companies have taken the addictiveness of added sugar and used it to market to your feelings. Name the company whose slogan says, "It's not fast food, it's fan food!" Junk food packed with added sugars. processed ingredients add to the dopamine until you want more and more.  The end results are we are the ones losing. Diabetes, heart disease. fatty liver disease... You name it, added sugar is causing inflammation & wreaking havoc on your body.

According to Harvard Health, “Americans take in an average of more than 17 teaspoons of sugar (about 290 calories) a day from added sugars, often in sweetened beverages, far more than recommended.

Sugar is added to countless food products, including breads, condiments, dairy-based foods, nut butters, salad dressings, and sauces.

The sugar is added not just to impart sweetness. It's also used to extend shelf life and adjust attributes like the texture, body, color, and browning capability of food.

This leads me back to this topic: Where do you start when you feel like there are SO MANY things to be aware of? 

It had to start with me and it DID start with me!

Understanding the ins and outs of sugar and the effects on the body is the transformation I started with FIRST. This helped me experience a 70 pound loss. It helped me shed inflammation, boosted my energy and started removing excess bad gut bugs that were wreaking havoc.
