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?

In today’s post I offer five tips to keep your body in the fat burning zone instead of fat storage mode!

It just proves the power and importance of women empowering and encouraging other women.
While meal prep and planning ahead is crucial to your success, it doesn’t have to be complicated. For some, meal prepping may be setting aside a couple (or more) hours on a off day to cook up several meals and food varieties for the week, but for me, I found that I didn’t even have the time to do that. So today, I’m sharing small, bite-size things I’ve done to make planning ahead pretty do-able for my busy life.
