I recently made the acquaintance of a Registered Nutritional Consulting Practitioner (RNCP) named Nancy DesJardins. I was so impressed by her research, and her passion to help people overcome their food addictions and reclaim their health, that I wanted to share it with you. Here is a short article she wrote on sugar:
Sugar. Even the word sounds sweet.
Did you know that by some experts’ count, we are all eating the equivalent of 160 pounds of sugar each year? And that sugar is one of the worst ingredients – some say poison – you can put into your body?
If you crave chocolate, or cake, or any other sweet stuff, the fact is, like most people, you’re probably addicted to sugar. Of all bad habits, it’s one of the worst. In fact, this is one bad habit that can poison your entire life.
But you can change that. Because like smoking, you can break bad habits – and addictions. The choice is yours.
Step 1: You Decide
The first step, then, is choosing to trade your bad habits for good ones. Out with the bad, sugary foods, and in with the healthy. It’s as easy as that! With this one step, you can change your entire future.
Step 2: Look Around
Once you’ve made up your mind, the next step is to look around and evaluate the foods you’re putting into your body. Why are you eating them? Are you getting any nutrition from them? There’s a lot of learning and taking stock ahead. This won’t be easy.
Changing your beliefs and attitudes about yourself and your eating is one of the most difficult challenges you will ever face. But it can be done with good old-fashioned stick-to-it determination, effort, and education. Many people just like you have kicked the sugar habit. I know it can be done – I’ve helped people do it. Not only did they get a new outlook on life, they lost weight in the process!
Recipe for Success
If you are to be successful at breaking the sugar habit, then it’s important to understand how sugar affects your body. And how healthy food – your new, good habit – can give your body the nutrients it craves. Once you learn that, you will never again want to put poison into your body.
