Sugar = Cancer??

The other night I was watching 60 Minutes & they were doing a special on how the intake of sugar CAUSES cancer!!!! SCARY! They went on to say that when you eat or drink sugar it immediately increases your insulin & feeds the tumor / cancer cells causing them to grow. It also talked about when a person eats / drinks sugar often it becomes as addictive as a cigarette causing your body to crave more & more which will in turn cause Type II Diabetes. The last thing they touched on was that sugar directly causes a rise in your LDL or “bad” cholesterol.

This is all very scary information & America is in trouble. Cut sugar out of your diet & eat the egg yolk to LOWER your cholesterol! To help your sweet cravings or night eating try the following:

*ACV in 8 oz water after your meals
*Brush & floss your teeth
*Take a walk
*Eat protein & healthy fat at each meal
*Go to bed early
*Allow yourself 1 date coconut roll per day
*Read a good book
*Close the kitchen after dinner

The first week is always the hardest. I CHALLENGE you to cut out all sugar & processed foods for 2 full weeks. It takes 30 days to make a habit so after your 2 weeks I challenge you to 2 more. You can do it and your body & health will thank you!!!
