Fluorescent lighting and dressing room mirrors do not always convey the most flattering views especially when you are trying on your swimsuit! You can’t control that store situation and environment but you can control what you put in your mouth. And I am sorry to break the news to you, but what you put in your mouth directly affects how you look in your body.
If you are eating sugar, it is going to show up on your body in the form of unwanted weight. I am not even going to mention the health detriments of sugar as that is another story and I’ll save it for another blog post. Here are some simple ways that you can try to lessen the pull of this addictive drug and make your bikini shopping experience a fun trip! So how do you get rid of the sugar? You’ve got to get rid of the sugar.
STOPPING EATING SUGAR IS THE ONLY WAY TO STOP FROM EATING SUGAR.
It’s a drug and it makes you crazy, cloudy, tired and FAT! (and not to mention the guilt that goes along with eating sugar. SO STOP EATING SUGAR. Make a decision and do whatever it takes to STOP.
Here are a few helpful tips:
1. AMP IT UP. Eat a nutritious packed breakfast to start your day. NO cake for breakfast in the form of bagel.s muffins, or croissants. Choose naked food for breakfast so that you put your sugar cravings a bay. A bagel will do nothing but set you up for the rest of the day for craving everything and anything sweet.
2. FIND A SUBSTITUTE. Find something to eat instead of sugary stuff. A sweet potato is a great snack and satisfies your sugar urge. Top it off with a dollop of almond butter and you’ve got close to perfect satisfaction.
3. GET AWAY – If sugar calls you, call someone for help. Call your coach, mentor or enroll a friend to talk you out of it, get out of the house and take a walk, hydrate with some water and eat an crunchy apple, take a bath, journal about what you are really craving (it could be love, sleep, touch?)
4. COOK NAKED. Using foods as close to their natural source as possible helps you build your healthiest, sexiest body with out starving. It really is that simple. Watch what I mean as I show you how to cook up a 3 ingredient yummy naked soup that tastes so good you won’t believe it and eating it will help your dressing room episodes show up in much kinder light and you get lighter and fitter.
