Kicking Sugar to the Curb
Kick Your Sugar Cravings to the Curb
As a sugar addict, I felt completely broken. But I couldn't resist reaching for a cookie or a chocolate bar, even if I knew it was not good for me.
When I learned about how destructive sugar is to our cells and energy levels, I made the choice to kick it to the curb. My days of riding the sugar addiction roller coaster are over and I’m here to support you in ending yours as well.
Because I know that liberating feeling of not having to rely on something external to make you feel good.
People may not realize the damage sugar causes and the importance of giving up sugar. We may have to get the desire to give up sugar to want to give up sugar. I teach them how to break up with sugar without feeling lost or deprived (which is the worst feeling). Believe it or not, it is possible.
The key to overcoming sugar addiction is to address the root of the issue so that you can be truly free from sugar cravings. I'll help you have more energy and achieve your goals by helping you end the madness of sugar addiction.
There's no need to run to Starbucks hoping they don't run out of Frappuccinos or hoping there's one more M&M in the bag. Maybe you're a sugar lover and eat goji berries covered in chocolate? Yummy. But, sugar is sugar.
Sugar leads to sickness, and it ages you well beyond your years. In an acidic environment, cells cannot thrive, and sugar creates one. A recent study even showed that sugar lights up the same brain areas as cocaine, causing you to glow and be happy. It feeds bad bacteria in your body and throws off the delicate symbiosis that keeps you healthy. It destroys our brains and is highly addictive.
Sugar depletes the body of energy and causes weight gain or extreme weight loss due to malabsorption. If you have digestive issues like acid reflux or candida overgrowth (imbalanced gut bacteria), then sugar is likely to be the cause.
As soon as my body craves sugar, I know I'm out of balance. Sugar is a sign of deeper nutritional deficiencies, but it can never make up for these deficiencies. Listen you are not giving in or giving up - you are taking control. What you choose is up to you but this is your rules and you are the one making them up!
Let Jesus be your guide as you map out the way!
Sugar started for me by asking what I need to change to be a better person. The response I got back was that I needed to take care of myself and be a better version of myself. That journey began with changing my health and how I lived each day. It has been a long and difficult road, but it has been the best decision to empower me to be a better me. I feel more confident. I look better than I have without belly fat. I can honestly say I did this and know that I worked hard to get here. The battle is to keep going and not give up with the results.
Did you know that sugar is a toxin? Too much glucose in the blood leads to digestive issues, blood sugar imbalances, fatigue, and even diabetes.
When sugar is NOT depleting your beautiful body, you’ll experience:
Improved sex drive
No more bags under the eyes
Stabilized blood sugar – which means fewer cravings
Less cellulite - fewer toxins in the body
Are you ready to get started?
We have arrived to the point where we no longer have to say goodbye to trips to Starbucks with their 500+ calorie drinks or their sugar-laden "healthy smoothies."
We are Enough!
My name is Julie Spears and I am with you for the week. My sugar driver started as a kidney disease coach but I did not look at sugar as the same. It was not until through stress and my own journey of grief that disease started that ignited the desire to change. Years of failure to years of success - I did this and so can you! We hold the desire within each of us. What is that for you?
The grief is the driver. Picking up to survive grief is the needle mover. If I have to live I do not want to live in more pain than necessary.
I work with fellow grievers to find joy again in life by who they were meant to be - sugar destroys who we are - sugar frazzles our gut which attacks the brain which goes against what we are fighting for.
Before we start this journey, here are some cold hard facts:
Do you know just how much sugar that yummy Starbucks drink contains?
A Grande Caramel Brulee Latte has 52 grams of sugar and a whopping 430 calories.
The Frappuccino version contains 63 grams of sugar and 410 calories.
A Venti contains 82 grams of sugar and 510 calories.
Take a look at the next soad you see in the store. Look at fruit juice.
Every. thing. every thing that we pick up almost has sugar. Test yourself.
OH NO, right?
SUGAR IS EVERYWHERE
Sugar occurs naturally in nearly all foods. When in its most natural state, for example honey or maple syrup, it contains enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
But refined sugar depletes the body of its minerals and enzymes and creates an acidic environment leading to digestive problems, sinus congestion, cellulite, headaches, mucus in the stool, and allergies. Sugar causes belly bloat. Sugar steals your thunder!
When we consume refined sugar, it has a negative impact on our blood sugar, which leads to irritability, anxiety, wrinkles, poor sleep, hormonal imbalance and can also lead to more serious health problems.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
In addition to feeding inflammation in the cells and suppressing immunity, sugar can also:
Increase the risk of cancer
Lead to gastrointestinal problems
Cause reactive hypoglycemia
Interfere with your absorption of protein
Cause food allergies
Hamper weight loss
Accelerate the aging process
Increase anxiety and make you moody
Complicate ADD, ADHD, and spectrum-related issues
Here are some of the ways I add sweetness to my life instead of consuming sugar:
Dancing to music
Calling a best friend
Taking a walk
Taking a bath or sauna
Play my Playlist to empower
Hugging somebody I love
Getting a massage
