SUMMARY: KNOW YOUR FRENEMY ON YOUR WELLNESS JOURNEY

Alright, girlfriend. It’s time that we start exposing the frenemies that can sabotage your wellness journey and goals.

The frenemy we are going to expose in this episode is one that is charming, sweet, and tastes oh so good. Although it tastes good, it can destroy you from the inside.

This frenemy is called SUGAR, and it has to go!

Sugar is an ingredient that is not only addicting, but is also used by lots of companies to help you become addicted to their products.

Think of how hard it is to part with sodas, sweet teas, and even some of the healthiest seasonings (more about this later).

Before jumping ahead, I want to talk about the side effects of sugar.

Did you know sugar is linked to depression? It sure is!

Have you ever felt feelings that you can’t quite explain but you know they are feelings of sadness, slowness, or even down right depression? That’s sugar for ya!

I remember trying to change my eating, not realizing just how deep sugar was embedded in some of the more “healthy” things I was choosing to eat. What I didn’t realize was that companies have become cunning with how they use sugar.

It now carries over 50 different names. Some you may be familiar with, like fructose corn syrup. Yep, that’s sugar.

It wasn’t until I attended a class that went into the depth of how sugar works and how it’s subtly hidden. I was shocked to know that some seasonings even have sugar in them!

Girlfriend, at this point I had to start with a blank slate. I had to start from scratch and figure this thing out.

I didn’t want to continue being a product of obesity, nor watching my sisters around me fall victim to the same health issues. Enough is enough.

So what I’ve been able to do is take the things I’ve lived - both the good and the bad - and help other women shortcut their journey through my experiences.

I want to help you avoid situations like what I encountered. With that being said, I have a challenge for you… Get familiar with the various names of sugar and start reading your labels. You may be surprised how many things sugar is hiding in.

Let’s ditch the sugar frenemy girlfriend!
