Refined sugar has been getting absolutely slammed lately! So many documentaries, health programs and even research around how bad sugar is for you have been released in the last few years and shone a light on the truth about refined sugar.
For me personally, I was turned off sugar after watching ‘That Sugar Film’ (I highly recommend watching it if you want to see the effects sugar has on your body that you may not even be aware of in your own body). I realized that even though I’m not a massive sweet tooth, I was still having so much sugar in other forms without even realizing it.
I would also get headaches. All the damn time.
For as long as I can remember I have had headaches almost daily and believe it or not, once I cut out refined sugar – like 100% cut it out – after about a week of withdrawals (unfortunately including headaches) I was clear of all signs of the annoying existence that is headaches! I can’t even describe how good it was not to wake up and instantly have a headache. Eat breakfast, headache. Go outside, headache. Breathe, headache. DRAINER!
So here I am, promoting and backing 100% that cutting out refined sugar – or at least severely reducing it – will do you, your health and the only body you get absolute wonders!
How are you going to do it? With these basic tips!
I really hope these tips will help you! I promise it is so worth it once you start feeling 100% again, even if you think you’re feeling 100% now. Just try it!
As always I am more than happy to chat about this further or answer any questions you may have so please feel free to comment or contact me here. Good luck!
‘Going green’ is a term that has been thrown around for years. I liked to think of myself as quite ‘green’ – I mean, I separate my rubbish into recyclable and non-recyclable and I have a ton of Tupperware containers so I don’t waste plastic – but then my gorgeous friend Sarah put me to shame.
I was at her place one day when I noticed a list on her whiteboard about going green so I asked her what she was doing/changing. The answers she gave me sounded so innovative, yet so simple. I couldn’t believe the minor changes she had made in her life that would have such a positive impact on our planet. I asked her to tell me the five best/easiest/cost-effective things she had done and now, I am sharing them with you.
There you have it. Five super easy ways to help our planet, while also helping your wallet, health, skin, everything! Okay maybe not everything but close!
I know I will definitely be incorporating these simple tips into my daily life and will forever be pestering my friend Sarah about the new things she comes up with to go green. These ideas are such small changes to our lives, but imagine the effect it would have on our planet if we ALL made these changes!
Remember, it starts with you.
