I wanted to share with all of you a part of my e-book that is one of my favourites.
It’s about Sugar and why its so important to cut it the F out!!!
As we do this 25 day cleanse I think its important to share more and more information on WHY we cut out stuff like sugar and dairy. Its super important to be educated and then make the right choices for you moving forward from the cleanse. When I did this last year I cut out out cheese and never went back!
SO HERE YOU GO - STRAIGHT FROM THE FIT FATALE E-BOOK:
I cannot think of a better place to start than sugar. You are losing your mind due to a white, powdery drug that you keep giving yourself. One of the keys to controlling your appetite, mood, and life is regulating blood sugar. Blood sugar is like a rollercoaster. Every time we pump sugar into our bodies - and trust me it happens way more often than we would like to believe, we are sending our bodies on a sugar spike. But like all ups comes a big down. How do we survive it? Well, we reach for more sugar.
Sugar comes in crazy names as featured below (so does sodium or sodium packed chemicals BTW which we’ll discuss next). When you intake tons of sugar, your body tries to regulate it by releasing insulin- and too much of it. I won’t get into all the nitty-gritty of the chemistry, but all forms of sugar (alcohol and caffeine included) make us binge, overeat, lessen our taste buds, and eventually make us gain weight thanks to our good old friend: insulin.
I know what you're thinking. It sucks that our favorite vices like caffeine and wine fall under this. Sorry gang, but we’re talking about a radical change in these next 10 days. Like I said, bring back the trouble later...
BUT the amazing, stupendous news that I can’t wait to share with you all is that you can pick 2 out of the 10 days to have my supper skinny drink replacement that I tell everyone about. I’m a little loco and I've done months without alcohol on various occasions, mostly for health reasons. Every time I go back to drinking my body can’t metabolize the alcohol, so I’ve come up with an alternative: Half a glass of white wine, rosé or prosecco and the other half, soda water.
I know, I know. It sounds a little crazy to all the wine lovers out there, but I promise that it’s amazing and I have a bunch of clients and friends who can vouch for it. Every Saturday night when they text me about what to drink that won’t ruin their diet, this is my magic trick. You can make it more fun by adding lemon or berries. My fave is rosé, sparkling water and grapefruit slices! It not only cuts the calories and sugar in half, but you’re also drinking it with water. In other words, you’re rehydrating as you dehydrate. Bye-bye hangover, hello radiant morning!
Keep chugging that soda water rosé over your wild scrabble game... you think I'm kidding! Welcome to the good life, babes!
