12 Week Sugar Detox Guide

Just say no to SUGAR!!This is not a new idea. Lots of popular diets have come to the conclusion that our sugar intake is out of balance in our Modern diet and this is the cause of our expanding waistbands.Management of your Sugar and Carbohydrates is crucial for weight loss and your general health.When our system gets overloaded with too much sugar and carbs, our cells start storing extra carbs as fat. Our cells love to store carbs, so they are very eager and ready when we over eat our carbs. If we eat a moderate or low carb diet, then we can burn those carbs before they get the chance to be stored as extra fat.Our body uses carbs and fat for primary energy sources. So you can either burn carbs or fats at one time (not at the same time). Since carbs are quick energy, those always get burned first. If there is more carbs than can be burned at one time or more fat that is waiting in line to get burnedโ€ฆ then we have weight gain. read more
