The sugar cravings have been conquered and inflammation is going down. No more ripping knees and *snap-crackle-pop* hip joints. Rings slide on and off fingers again. Brain fog is lifting. Skin is healing.
And thanks to Liz Wolfe’s newly released SKINtervention materials, I have returned to oil cleansing and my complexion is rapidly improving. What a difference a few days makes!
Who knew sugar could cause so much trouble? Well, I did – but as I’ve shared before – that sugar is some sneaky stuff. It’s so addictive that studies show rats prefer it to cocaine! No wonder I suddenly found myself wallowing in the midst of sugar addiction after two years of freedom. I now know that I cannot allow myself to indulge in the high-sugar dried fruits like dates and raisins. Those Larabar-style treats combined with chocolate over the holidays turned into a slippery slope. Only goes to show what can happen when you’re not paying attention.
Sugar causes so much damage to our bodies and minds. Dr. Robert Lustig outlines sugar toxicity very clearly in his lecture Sugar: The Bitter Truth. Worthy of the hour+ it takes to watch. You’ll never look at sugar the same way again.
