It's time to cut that white granulated stuff from our diets.  You have heard the bad press on what it does and how it makes you feel, so now is the time to break the habit.  It apparently takes 21 days to break or form a habit and the first week is the worse - once you are over that you won't look back.  You will have more energy, better concentration and better moods. All in all it's a bonus for everyone! As we are an alkaline promoting company, we tend to look at what effect sugar has on the body.  It is extremely acid forming.  The body can't use the amount of sugar we tend to eat as a nation for energy, so it is stored in the liver and as fat and turns to toxins in the body which cannot be absorbed. Calgary, one of our HH heroes, wrote a fantastic piece for the Sunday Times Style this month, outlining the benefits of cutting out sugar in the diet. She called it the 'Sugar Trap'  which is I feel spot on.  When people come to us for help and get onto Fridge Fill (our alkaline food delivery service) the biggest thing they are trying to cut out of their diet is sugar.  I am not going to lie to you there are side effects, like any drug, when you cut it out. You could feel and get:
  1. Headaches
  2. Nausea
  3. Fatigue
  4. Lethargy
  5. Mood swings
  6. Acne
  7. Restless
However once you are through that stage you will feel and reap the benefits. Results include:
  1. Natural weightloss
  2. Better Moods
  3. Clear & glowing skin
  4. More energy
  5. Better sleep
  6. Balanced hormones
