After I put the final touches on Sugar Freedom XP last Friday, my husband told me he had read a serious article on the danger of sugar in the San Francisco Chronicle. Here is the headline for that story: “Sugar Tied to Fatal Heart Woes.”
I read it with my heart pounding, and then I turned to the web to see if there were more headlines trending on the dangers of added sugar.
Web MD stated the facts quite clearly, so I’ve quoted reporter Dennis Thompson’s article here:
“Doctors have long thought extra sugar in a person's diet is harmful to heart health because it promotes chronic conditions such as obesity and diabetes.
But the added sugar Americans consume as part of their daily diet can -- on its own, regardless of other health problems -- more than double the risk of death from heart disease, a new study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found.
The average American diet contains enough added sugar to increase the risk of heart-related death by nearly 20 percent, the researchers said.
And the risk of death from heart disease is more than doubled for the 10 percent of Americans who receive a quarter of their daily calories from sugar that's been added to food, said CDC researcher and study lead author Quanhe Yang.”
As I read through story after story on the implications of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, I became more and more excited by the implications of this new proof of sugar’s toxic effect. Who could argue with the CDC? This study could be vindication for those of us who have been saying sugar was the culprit in the obesity epidemic all along. Now everyone would flock to Sugar Freedom to learn how to get off of sugar.
Then I realized that these numbers indicating that the 10% of Americans who get a quarter of their daily calories from added sugar are at double the risk of heart disease represent real people with serious health risks ahead of them: either that or they face the significant, and often quite difficult task of getting off of sugar.
It’s hard to jump up and down with joy over the fact that you have an opportunity popularize your diet, when you realize that the people who need it are facing real risks to their health.
It’s easy to smile about fitting into your skinny jeans, looking younger, or having plenty of energy to enjoy life. But my smile fades when I think of the people who need to get off of sugar in order to prevent diabetes and heart disease.
And so, here is where I want to respectfully and soberly say that Sugar Freedom XP is here, and that it is on sale through February 17th.
SFXP is a new 14 day sugar detox that you can use to get off of added sugar for the first time, or that you can follow to get off of a fat loss plateau. It is the food plan I use when I want to look and feel my very best. I also recommend it to my personal training clients at Gordon Studio when they need to banish bloat and get glowing skin before a special event or photo shoot.
Sugar Freedom XP begins with a 3 day diet that eliminates sugar, grains, dairy, and nuts: foods that are featured on the standard Sugar Freedom plan. Then you can follow the next 11 days of menus to continue losing fat, and come in for a “Soft Landing” without rebound weight gain.
In addition, you will get the entire original Sugar Freedom plan that takes you all the way from initial fat loss to maintenance with meals plans, shopping lists, and recipes. Current owners of Sugar Freedom get SFXP as a free update to the original plan.
I hope you will take this opportunity to join me on the sugar free journey. Whether you want to achieve Sugar Freedom for health, to look your best, or both, it is possible to get off of sugar and enjoy life to the fullest.
