Do you feel tired often? Is getting out of bed in the morning a daily struggle? Does your energy dip every afternoon and the only thing that can bring you back to life is a sweet treat?
I felt this way for years especially in the winter time. I could sleep 10 plus hours and still feel like I needed more sleep. Getting up in the morning was a challenge and the 2 p.m. need for a a couple Reese Peanut Butter Cups was a must.
Well, the secret to more energy isn’t a brand new magic pill or super shake loaded with strange ingredients. In fact, it’s much more simple than you might think.
If you’re ready to increase your energy levels naturally there’s ONE thing you must do is eliminate sugar from your diet in all forms. This might sound dramatic and not at all easy but hear me out. Sugar has ZERO nutritional value yet it still takes a ton of energy to process. It actually TAKES from your body instead of giving to it (like real whole food is supposed to do).
If you’re ready to not feel like you’re completely drained at 2pm. If you want to wake up feeling refreshed. If you’re longing to have the energy to do the things on your “to do list”, or go to a Zumba class after work, then it’s time to give up sugar.
Here are 3 easy ways you can reduce your sugar intake starting NOW…
1. Stop drinking soda or juice, stick to water flavored with slices of citrus, cucumber or enjoy brewed herbal tea cold or hot.
2. Eliminate white flour from your diet. No more bread, pasta, or baked goods that spike your insulin levels like nothing else.
3. Skip dessert and opt for a nourishing herbal tea with licorice root or cinnamon as a naturally sweet addition that also helps curb cravings.
