Be Stronger than your Excuses
I finally get it. Once I determined that getting healthy was my top priority and I was going to do this for me no matter what…magic happened. It also helped to be in on an amazing beta group that combined a few cool things: 1) Isagenix, 2) Reducing Sugar, 3) Intermittent Fasting and 4) Cleansing.
While I have tried Atkins and Paleo before with some success, it never seemed like a good long term idea. I have to be honest, I love carbs but they don’t really love me.
If you are really motivated to lose weight or get healthier, we all know that there is no effortless way to lose the weight that I had put on over the last 30 years. This will take a shift in your mindset and really thinking about the goals you want to achieve. Once you put your mind to it, anything is possible.
Sugar is 8x more addicting than cocaine
That statement is just shocking…while I’m not a sugar addict, what I didn’t realize that all the carbs that I love basically convert into glucose (aka sugar). The body breaks down or converts most carbohydrates into the sugar glucose. Glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream, and with the help of a hormone called insulin it travels into the cells of the body where it can be used for energy. Sugar is bad for you. Cancer loves sugar. If you don’t pay attention you can eat 100+ carbs a day and guess what happens to the glucose in the cells of your body? It turns to fat if it isn’t burned off.
Light Bulb Moment
This is why Low Sugar and Keto diets are so popular but is it healthy for a long term way of living? In October, I was given the opportunity to participate in a test group to eliminate sugar from my diet and focus on my macros like protein and fats.
What I learned was any more than 5oz of protein eaten at anyone time also will turn into glucose. So while high protein diets work initially they really aren’t good long term. Now if you look at Keto, the initial phases have you go about 5% carbs, 25% protein and 70% good fats. Fat you say? Can I just eat bacon and lose weight? Well no, because the goal of how you eat is to eat healthy.
But your body loves good fat, it actually runs more effectively when it is burning fat than carbs. There is no up and down or highs and lows with fat. You end up having more energy, sleep better and for me, it allows me to burn all that extra fat I packed on of the last number of year
So far I’m down 20 lbs…I stopped having cravings, I have more energy and am sleeping better. What I want to share with you is that depending on where you are right now, what your weight loss goals might be and how you have been eating lately…finding the right program that can break through those plateaus is not always a one size fits all.
