Jill’s Fit Tip Tuesday! Ditch the Sugar Addiction

With diabetes on the increase it’s time we start changing our relationship with sugar. I had to totally give up sugar to lose 100 pounds. It’s hard but so worth it in the end. By no means am I perfect I still stumble. The difference is now I have the knowledge. Once you do even when you stumble you quickly realize what you need to change to get back to the basics and stay away from sugar as much as possible.

One of the most important things you can do is learn about Alternative Sweeteners.
Consider alternatives like Agave nectar, made from the blue agave cactus grown in Mexico, or Stevia, a non-caloric herb from Paraguay. I use the stevia drops and love them on my oatmeal and I cook with it as well. Really try to stay away from artificial sweeteners. They are not good for you. They can cause severe gastrointestinal problems. NOT a fun outcome just from eating something sweet.
