21 days Sugar Free – Starts April 21

Sound familiar?

“Let’s say you start your morning with coffee and a pastry, or coffee and nothing at all (after all, won’t skipping breakfast help you lose weight? And coffee suppresses appetite and gives you energy! That’s a good thing, right?). You probably feel pretty good, and you coast along, putting off lunch until you crash. By then you’re starving, jittery, anxious, moody, irritable. You eat lunch, and you probably eat too much because you’re starving and you miscalculated your hunger needs. After lunch, you feel tired as all your energy is diverted into digesting a large meal.

Or, perhaps you grab a handful of jelly beans or a Snickers to tide you over until lunch, because you’re busy. All that sugar immediately raises your blood glucose level too high, and what goes up must come down.”
