How do you think you did?

After reading about sugar and taking the quiz, what does your gut instinct tell you? Do you feel that sugar is an issue for you?

Balanced Blood Sugar Levels Are Foundational To Health and Vitality

When I went through my nutritional training, regulating blood sugar levels was one of the first things we learned. When your blood sugar levels aren’t balanced, your hormones aren’t balanced. When blood sugar levels elevate, cortisol elevates, which increase inflammation in the body. When blood sugar levels rise it puts a strain on your adrenals, your brain, your liver, and your pancreas, just to mention a few.

Blood Sugar and Weight Loss

If your blood sugar levels aren’t balanced, and you don’t eat for a while, your blood sugar levels drop and you need food and you need it now! This makes any attempt at calorie restriction or weight loss next to impossible. I am amazed at the willpower of individuals who try to lose weight without balancing their blood sugar levels first.

If you want to lose weight it is imperative to balance your blood sugar levels first. When you do this, cravings, withdrawals, and need to eat food now is gone and weight loss is so much easier and a more grounded process.

Fortunately I love helping people get off sugar. I wrote about it in my book and created a 30 Day No Sugar Challenge here on my website. It’s free, you can check it out here:
