Sugar

Life has been a little crazy at my house with so many different big things going on so I haven’t been finding the time to write. By the time I get home and done with my to do list I am just exhausted. I will share more soon on what has been going on.

I have been able to keep active and do something everyday to keep moving. However my food intake isn’t the best. I really need to focus on this because your food intake and what you are putting into your body really effects everything else with your health. I need to cleanse. I spent Sunday evening meal prepping for the week and I am going to have to push through with my self control.

My goals this week are to stay away from the sweets and sugars. Natural sugar is fine but the fake stuff isn’t needed. Here are some of the things fake sugars can do to your body

  1. It tricks your body into storing fat by increasing your cravings for carbs
  2. When you eat something sweet, your brain releases dopamine, which activates your brain’s reward center. The hormone leptin is also released, which eventually informs your brain that you are “full” once a certain amount of calories have been ingested.
  3. Headaches
  4. Digestive Issues

These are just a few of the issues. None of them sound fun to me. So this is my focus.
