This Is What Happens When You Get Off Of Sugar.

Click Here For The Exact Diet That Works!
Back in 2008, when I finally began to succeed at permanent fat loss, my diet was all about appearance.  I wanted to look and feel young again, and I was willing to go to any lengths to get to my goal, even if that meant throwing out everything I'd ever learned about weight loss.

I had to stop exercising for hours a day, and start training strategically.  I had to walk away from any foods that came in a bag or a box, and I had to give up all added sugar.  After 35 years of dieting and feeling hungry and deprived, it worked.

Now, in 2014, the hard evidence on the poison power of sugar is adding up.  I'd like to share part of this article from Dr. Mercola's website:

Connection Between Sugar and Chronic Disease Strengthened by New Research

A recent study published in the peer-reviewed journal JAMA Internal Medicine4examined the associations between added sugar consumption and cardiovascular disease (CVD) deaths. The study did not include naturally occurring sugars in the diet, focusing only on added sugars. The study, which thankfully has met with robust media coverage,5, 6, 7, 8 found that:
  • Among American adults, mean percentage of daily calories from added sugar increased from 15.7 percent in 1988-1994 to 16.8 percent in 1999-2004
  • Mean percentage of daily calories from added sugar decreased to 14.9 percent in 2005-2010
  • Most adults (just over 71 percent) get 10 percent or more of their daily calories from added sugar
  • Approximately 10 percent of American adults got 25 percent or more of their daily calories from added sugar in 2005-2010
  • The most common sources of added sugar are sugar-sweetened beverages, grain-based desserts, fruit drinks, dairy desserts, and candy
Americans get, on average, about 350 calories a day (equivalent to about 22 teaspoons of sugar and 25 percent of their daily calories) from added sugar in the diet. According to this study, those who consume 21 percent or more of their daily calories in the form of sugar are TWICE as likely to die from heart diseasecompared to those who get seven percent or less or their daily calories from added sugar.
The risk was nearly TRIPLED among those who consumed 25 percent of their daily calories from added sugar. At present, about 600,000 Americans die of heart disease each year,9 and it's the leading cause of death among both sexes. Not surprisingly, the authors concluded that:
"Most US adults consume more added sugar than is recommended for a healthy diet. We observed a significant relationship between added sugar consumption and increased risk for CVD mortality."

I am so grateful that current science is validating what I have experienced for years.  By eliminating added sugars, and the foods that turn right into sugar when we eat them (i.e. whole wheat bread) we can eliminate cravings, shed fat, and look younger.

I have put years of tracking and recording what I ate to overcome obesity, and it can all be found in Sugar Freedom. 

The entire Sugar Freedom Program is on sale including Sugar Freedom XP, the extra powerful 2 week program that can free you from sugar cravings, and give you energy, fat loss, and the glow of health.

More and more voices in health, including the World Health Organization, are urging us to get added sugars out of our diets.
