A Great Solution for "Low Carb Flu"


I have been so delighted about the success of our latest 6 Week Sugar Freedom Challenge at Gordon Studio.

The challenge group was small, but the results were big, with four challengers losing the Maximum Recommended Amount of Weight in six weeks.  Cherie and Whitley each lost more than 11 pounds, and Candy lost 13.

As an ACE certified Personal Trainer, I've learned that 2 pounds a week is the maximum amount of fat loss that one can expect on a diet and exercise program.  If we see higher weight loss numbers, chances are that the extra weight loss is coming for lean tissue: in other words, precious muscle.

What's more, I have been coaching a number of other clients in the art of getting off of sugar, grains, and processed vegetable oils, and I enjoy learning more about the challenges of getting off of sugar and starch from each of them.

Here is a common problem they are reporting to me, and a solution to that problem.

According to Dr. Eric Westman, one of the co-authors along with Jimmy Moore of "Keto Clarity,"  a low carb high fat diet can have a diuretic effect which drastically lowers sodium levels along with bloat and inflammation.

Now, nobody wants the bloat, but a drop in sodium levels can leave my clients feeing tired, cranky, and all around low energy.

Enter bullion in warm water as a fast pick me up.  My clients Jill, Whitley, Candy, and more have reported that the bullion drink is astonishingly effective.

There's just one problem.

Most bullions contain sugar!  Yes, you read that right.  One "organic" bullion even goes so far as to call it "Glucose Syrup" instead of sugar on the label.  Can you imagine why?  Companies must be getting wise to the fact that so many of us are discovering the benefits of getting sugar out of our diets

Luckily, my search on Amazon.com turned up this solution:




Finally, a sugar bullion that proudly declares its sugar free status right on the label.  I'm heading over there to order some now.
