Ditch the Donuts


Do you admire those people in the office who can walk right past the donuts? I used to be the person who could not resist the temptation of sweets in the lounge. Those emails send out on Friday mornings encouraging you to get your morning fix in the lounge. Ugh! I was always struggling with should I or shouldn't I eat the donuts? I would justify eating the donuts by saying to myself, "I will just have one and I will be working out today so I can work off the extra calories." The notion of eat everything in moderation is actually a detriment to YOUR HEALTH! Yah I said it! It doesn't WORK! Why doesn't it work? Well first of all sugar is ADDICTIVE! YES news flash it is not healthy (even in small amounts) and it does nothing for your waistline. But the fact is, this type of mentality and behavior creates blood sugar imbalances which leads to cortisol surges, blood sugar drops with increased CRAVINGS for sugar! Now I don't know about you but, if I don't crave something, I don't WANT IT and I don't EAT IT. That is the key to weight loss and weight maintenance, control or SHUT OFF CRAVINGS for SUGAR! If you can do that you can DO ANYTHING! You can eat that salad at lunch and FEEL SATISFIED! So how do you do it? Well . . . I know you don't want to hear this but STOP EATING SUGAR! Even occasionally, even when there is a party at work or it's your niece's graduation, or your at a movie theater. I know it sounds hard but think of it this way, which is harder, being continually inflamed, tired, heavy, depressed, anxious, not sleeping well, gaining weight, increasing your risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and autoimmune disease? You have to get brutally honest with yourself. WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT? Do you want to be healthy and fit with tons of energy? Do you want to be the one whom everyone thinks is 10 years younger than you are? Do you want to age well? I think everyone wants that!
