...Are you tired all the time?
...Need a couple of cups of coffee (or a soda or energy drink) to get started?
...What about brain fog and forgetfulness?
...Insomnia... where your body is tired but your mind just keeps going?
...Do you struggle to lose pounds? Even when you're eating healthy?
...Or to put pounds on, even when you're eating non-stop?
Well... keep reading. I know how you feel! For years, I struggled with this. To be honest, most of my life. And the funny thing... I never correlated the amount of sugar I was intaking, or the amount of stress I was under, to these horrible symptoms. In fact, I really thought I thrived on a few hours of sleep. And when I was rail thin... that my metabolism was just "fast". After all, I had been a skinny kid all my life. Like my dad. My kids teased me that I could eat like a rodent and never gain weight! Good genes! Lucky me!
It would take years before I would correlate the strange symptoms I was having (never sleeping, always thinking, raging you-know-what if a meal was served late, cold hands & feet, the list went on) to my food intake. After all, I followed all of the rules: Lots of veggies. No fat. Little salt. Exercise daily.
So why was I having all this weirdness? I wouldn't figure it out until I spent years of research trying to understand my daughter's food allergies, and finally went back to school to get a Masters in Nutrition & Integrative Health. Nope, not through the zillion doctors I saw (for her or me), not through scouring the Internet. You know... the things you do when you're up all hours of the night...
But here's the deal! SUGAR, in all forms, including those awesome complex carbs we're taught to eat, can really wreak havoc in our bodies when we consume too much. And stress... well... let's just say that no matter how "good" you eat, if you don't control it... you will get sick. Plain and simple. No ifs, ands or buts.
Don't get me wrong. We need sugar for energy. And we need stress too. If we never challenged our bodies, we would surely die. So neither of these are bad in their own right. The problem is... we get too much of each on a typical day.
I'd like to share with you all that I've learned about sugar and stress (wow, I just realized they both start with 'S'... I bet there's a tag line in there somewhere...). But it's more than I can share in this post.
So I've created a FREE WEBINAR called "Cut Sugar Cravings to Look & Feel Your Best!". It's airing Wed. March 13th at 8pm. Hopefully late enough that you can get home, get comfy and find a quiet place to listen.
I'll be getting down to the nitty-gritty about sugar: why you need it, why too much is a bad thing, and how to get it balanced so you're healthy. Because when you're healthy inside, everything about you reflects it. Your mood. Your weight. Everything!
Life is too short to drudge through your days feeling like crap! Struggling to keep track of all that you have to do. Tossing and turning instead of sleeping peacefully... And looking in the mirror to find a worn out, old fart looking back at you!
Nope! I want you feeling vibrant, popping out of bed ready to face the day, with enough energy to set the world on fire with your bad-ass self! Looking great while you do it! Because the world needs what you have to offer! And no one likes it when you're cranky... just saying...
But here's the thing... I don't want to be stuck with boring, tasteless food to be healthy. I love it too much. So please don't skip this because you think I'm going to take away all the foods you love! Not on my agenda, I promise. I just want to share what I know about balancing sugar and stress, so you can look and feel amazing! Because life is too short not to! Did I mention that already?
So take a second right now and REGISTER for the webinar. If you can't make it, register anyway. I'll send you the replay so you can listen later.
Here's to good health! Yours. Mine. Our Family's. Our Friend's.
