Everyone knows that sugar is bad for you....that it can be a major contributing factor to developing diabetes as the typical American diet ingests on average 60 pounds of sugar a year per person! How is this possible? Sugar is in almost EVERYTHING you eat that is processed......Here is a heads up. Go in your fridge, check your salad dressings (see any corn syrup solids or high fructose corn syrup in there?) check your condiments, check your bread...YES your bread! Even the "whole grain" ones...do you happen to see sugar or any of its "fancy sneaky names in there?" What about artificial sugars? Check all your cookies, cakes, frozen foods, yogurt (especially fruit flavored yogurt) ! Check all your processed snacks, crackers, canned soups, etc. See what you find....and we wonder nearly 75% of Americans are overweight/obese and have a epidemic of type 2 diabetes in this country....yes, genetics do play a huge role, (will have that as a personal story later), but it is LIFESTYLE CHOICES - what you eat, how much (or not) you exercise, and how you manage your body weight that are the primary components in weight gain & diabetes. If you are wondering why you are not losing weight, and you are still eating mostly processed foods that you think are healthy, stay tuned!
I'm a lovin life girl... a bit of a daredevil at times... I love my family and friends and my great clients! I learn a lot a long the way and I'd love to share what I learn with you. :-)
