Plus FIVE TIPS to get yourself on track before it is too late!
Why is it so important to pay attention to how much sugar we eat?
Sugar has been identified as leading to cancer, obesity, heart disease, diabetes… and can even make you age quicker.
But one thing that most people don’t realize is how SNEAKY sugar really is!
Where is sugar hiding?
Sugar is found in almost ALL of our foods these days.
And it isn’t just sugar that we have to be aware of… it is everything that turns into sugar after we eat it… namely “Carbs.”
Two foods that cause my blood sugar to spike the fastest are white rice and white potatoes… and most people wouldn’t even think of them as having “sugar” in them.
Here are Five Tips to help you Start the “No Sugar Challenge” without the Struggle
1 – Start paying attention to how you feel
Do you actually feel your best?
Do you have energy all day? Or do you deal with daily energy crashing and feel like you have to rely on coffee or sodas to make it through the day?
Do you struggle waking up in the mornings?
Do you struggle with falling asleep at night?
Do you deal with headaches?
Do you get dizzy?
Do you have cravings?
2- Have a plan
One of the best things I ever did was just have a plan! When I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes with my first pregnancy… I felt so lost and alone because I had no idea where to start. Everything we ate had some form of carbs in them… even the healthy foods!
Thankfully I put my plan together in a simple guide called My Sugar Detox Guide.
This will walk you through making the change to reduce your sugar and take back control of your health.

3- Stock your fridge and pantry with low carb foods
When life gets crazy… you are going to fall back on back habits. I see it time and time again (even with myself!).
If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.
One thing I did was throw out 80% of our pantry and restock it with low carb choices that I could grab and stay on track without even having to think.
4- Start with one meal at a time
Take one meal that you know you like… or one snack that you can have handy… make it low carb and put it in a meal rotation.
It may be a list of meal ideas, or snack ideas, but start slow and it won’t be as overwhelming.
5 – Have a tool box
What is a tool box?
This is my “I don’t leave home without these” box. I literately have a box when we travel where I keep all my snacks and products that I use daily to keep me on track when I’m not at home.
It’s easy to stay on track when you are at home, right? But what about when you are on the road or traveling?
Maybe it is just a crazy week and you need some simple solutions that help?
Well, that’s what my tool box is for.
Some of my tool box includes a chocolate greens superfood powder, an instant grassfed butter coffee, my favorite low carb keto shake…
These are some things that I have to have with me! They help me with my sugar cravings and also just help me stay healthy too.
