Cutting Back on Sugar—How Can We Do It?

SugaryFoods_1110x457

By Fit3 Head Coach Tina Van Horn

Lately my sweet tooth has gotten a little out of control, mostly because I cannot resist cereal.  From bran flakes to everyone’s favorite box of colorful marshmallows, cereal is my weakness. As long as I don’t get started on it, I am good. But, once I grab a handful, there is a 99.9% chance that it’s going to lead to what probably totals three servings or more. Once the craving is triggered, I am in trouble.

Not only do I regret my choices 30 minutes later, but I feel lousy too. The blood sugar/insulin spiral makes me really grumpy and fatigued. Hello, sugar coma!

No Sweets Week

I have personally declared this a “No Sweets Week.” I’ve managed so far, even said no to a chocolate candy from Tom, but the next few months are very sugar-oriented! I challenge YOU to join me and try to really cut back on your sugar intake this week. Luckily, a Reliv shake can help! 

Strategy

  • Avoid your trigger foods (For me, those are cereal, ice cream and cookies). You know what your triggers are.
  • Establish an immediate consequence. I only allow myself ice cream if I do 25 burpees afterward.
  • Drink more water.
  • Drink a Reliv shake to curb your craving.

It may sound hard, because it is hard. Sugar is addictive and comes as such a strong craving, but here at Reliv we are in this together and we can beat those cravings as a team!

Today, if some sweetened calorie bomb is calling your name, don’t forget the above strategies to keep you on track!

Science and Health Today: Why the World Needs Reliv Now + LunaRich X

We often hear warnings about the dangers of the standard American diet and lifestyle. The increased demands on our time compel us to seek more convenient, fast food options that are often highly processed and low in essential nutrients. We often lament the fact that we don’t have time for physical activity, are stressed out and don’t get enough quality sleep. All of these things lead to weight gain and New Year’s resolutions to lose that weight. Perhaps even a bigger issue is that the standard American diet leaves us with nutrient deficiencies making it even more difficult for our bodies to deal with the stresses of modern life. And this is a lifestyle that is becoming more common around the world, not just in the U.S.

But what about when we do everything right? We eat a balanced diet full of fresh produce, get regular physical activity, manage our stress, practice good sleeping habits and get those 8+ hours in and maintain a healthy weight. Are we doing everything we can for good health and getting all the nutrients we need? Possibly, but this is very dependent on what you’re eating and your individual needs. This can be very difficult to know for sure. There is also a difference between getting just enough of a nutrient and getting the optimal amount.  Continue reading “Science and Health Today: Why the World Needs Reliv Now + LunaRich X”
