Is sugar really the new fat?
Can we really be addicted to sugar like alcoholics addicted to alcohol?
While I don’t know for sure that sugar really is the new fat or that we have a bonafide addiction to it, studies do show that most Americans eat an average of 20 teaspoons of added sugar a day. That’s just added sugar! That’s not including the hidden sugars that we eat on a regular, daily basis.
Ask yourself these two questions: Is my body in the fat storage mode or fat burning mode? Am I eating to lose fat or store fat? While weight loss is important, having colon cancer when I was 29 and weighing less than 120 pounds, I learned the hard way that skinny people can be unhealthy too. In today’s post I offer five tips to keep your body in the fat burning zone instead of fat storage mode!

While meal prep and planning ahead is crucial to your success, it doesn’t have to be complicated.

Before we delve into the infamous debate on whether to detox or not to detox, let’s first get a basic definition of what it is. Detox refers to the removal of toxic substances. Now what does that really mean as far as we’re concerned in regards to actually detoxing our body? And why does our body even need detoxing anyway? When we detox the body, we’re basically cleaning the blood and removing toxic waste from the tissues and the liver, kidneys and intestines (where our filtering and elimination of these wastes takes place).
