What is the one thing that you can do to decrease your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes? You may think that could not be possible. One thing? How simple can that be? But it isn’t simple because sugar is addictive and our world is full of sugar.
Sugar has been hidden in many foods and under many names, over 50 names, by our manufacturers. We have bought into the myth that carbohydrates are needed for life and fat is our enemy. Dr. Ancil Keys told the science community in 1970s, that fat was the villain, causing heart disease. This information has changed our eating habit for 48+ years.
Dr. Robert Atkins, was a pioneer in 1972, when his 1st book came out promoting “low carbohydrate diets, Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution”. Was he entirely correct with his information? Not exactly, but was a move in the best interest of good health and decreasing carbohydrate intake.
Let’s take a moment to exam our health after 40+ years of believing that fat was causing cardiovascular disease. We have created the perfect storm for chronic illness; heart disease, diabetes, cancer and auto-immune diseases to name just a few by eating processed snack foods, trans fats, chemical-laden foods and added sugar to all kinds of food.
There are many reasons to evict sugar from our lives, but the top 3 are:
Become a label reader, to know you are eating good quality food and nothing your grandmother won’t recognize. It’s OK to use Stevia and erythritol for sweeteners, because usually neither of these natural products raise blood sugar.
