Natren Probiotics

The most popular item we eat is killing us.

Did you know that the world's most popular food additive is the same ingredient that is causing obesity, diabetes, candida, allergies, and many other diseases and disorders.  On some level you must already know what I'm about to say?  Sugar!  

Stop the sugar.  Not only is sugar addictive but it is deadly.  Unfortunately, most of us don't realize just how much sugar is in the food we eat, how many foods actually turn into sugar in our bodies and how it is effecting each of us individually.  Research has reported that at one time we ate on average a couple of tablespoons a day.  Now that sugar is in our bread, ketchup, soy sauce, pasta and more... we are finding that the average person consumes 1 pound a day.  And yes the industry has gone out of their way to provide sugar free options for us; however, these options can be just as deadly as the sugar itself.

Most of us know that sugar is not healthy, but I don't think the majority of us have any idea truly how devastating sugar is. And reducing one's sugar consumption can be challenging as it is highly addictive, causing withdrawal symptoms such as headaches, mood swings, depression, fatigue, and cravings.  However, there are ways to help you overcome the withdrawals and successfully get off the sugar if you are willing.  Switching to sugar free is not an option either, the only real solution is to realize that it is all a really bad idea for our bodies.  It provides no nutritional value for us and actually takes away from our bodies ability to perform the way it was designed.  If you absolutely must have that sweet taste give Stevia a try.  It is a green plant that is sweet and full of nutrients which your body can actually find benefit from.  They've even packaged it and are now selling it at most local health food stores and some mainstream grocery stores.

Here is a list of foods to avoid....  (Click for a list of good foods to eat)

Here is a list of items that can help during your transition....
  • Probiotics - the refrigerated kind.  "Healthy Trinity" by Natren is my first choice followed by "Garden of Life.
  • Fish Oil - Carlson's is the best and fish oil can help reduce the cravings while providing your body with fuel that it can use not only for your internal organs but for your brain as well.
  • Avocados - Great food to help curb the cravings
  • Coconut Oil - Cold Pressed also a great source of omega's while offering your body and brain essential fatty acids. (a tablespoon 3 times a day)
  • Eggs - Cook the whites, and eat the yolks loose. (sunny side up, poached or any a protein shake)
  • Distilled water with a freshly squeezed lemon
  • Dandelion root (2 tablespoons a day of the powder or 4 capsules in the am/pm)
  • Grapefruit
  • Stevia - Packets,  French Vanilla Stevia Liquid Extract 2 Ounces, Shaker
