Sugar the Silent Killer

Sugar the Silent Killer

Sugar is a silent killer, from high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, diseased gums and teeth, heart disease, diabetes, liver disease and all can be linked to SUGAR consumption! The recommended amounts of sugar to consume daily is 26g or less for adults. People who consume more than this frequently drastically increase their risk of developing one of these diseases.

From my research into sugar I have noticed a few similarities among articles.
Sugar is Addictive
Sugar is Widely Available and Added to our foods
Sugar is Addiction is your choice
First lets look into sugar being addictive. I can tell you from my personal experience that I know I have been and will become addicted to sugar. For me all it takes is a few consistent times of having chocolate or high refined sugar foods for me to crave nothing but sugary foods. All my knowledge of health and fitness will go out the window as my body craves and the brain wants nothing but sugar. As an alcoholic with alcohol, the cravings are there, the mind plays trick on you and if you do not stand guard you may fall victim again. Our brains are set to figure out what is reward and what things bring pain. It is pretty simple, when we eat sugar, we feel a brief high and our brains relate that to rewards. Sugar is a dense calorie food that causes the brain to release dopamine and after so many times your brain becomes numb to the dopamine receptors and you no longer feel satisfied and want something sweeter.

As for Sugar being widely available and overly used, that is partially due to business wanting to make money and sell a lot of product. Sugar is fairly cheap and companies can add it to their products to make them a little sweeter, lets say, or another words it is a cheap way for them to make their product more desirable. Sugar has so many names that it can be hidden on labels, so consumers have no idea what they are ingesting. I won’t attempt to list all the names but here are a few. Sugar is in everything from cereal, beans, chicken broth, well pretty much any canned foods. Drinks are another form that have hidden sugars in them, sport drinks, juices, milk, soda, all have sugar.

If you actually try to go by the recommended guidelines of the Heart Association, you will begin to notice how sugar has slowly made its way into everything and your best bet is to eat fresh and clean. Sugar is an addiction and you can overcome the urge and desires by eating healthier foods you personally prepare. In todays world we opt out to much to go for what is easiest, not what is healthiest. Limit your processed foods and focus on health of your family. If you need help there are people out there are who strive to help you reach your goals, fitness coaches, nutritionist, the help is there you just have to reach out for it. I personally am one of these people addicted to sugar and I am also a fitness coach and will love to have the opportunity to chat with you to give you some tips to get your life healthier and cleaner. You can change and you can help your family. As the parents we do the grocery shopping so it is no ones fault but our own, if our children become addicted to sugar. Lead by example and if you need help, reach out for it, there are people here to help.
God Bless

What is Beachbody Coaching from the Business Perspective

**this is just to put this business in perspective**
Interviewing for 1 New Spot at the Top of my Organization,
Read what I post below and if you would like more information then please apply and I will review the applicants:
“The magic of What we do as coaches is built on part-time effort… You work 5 to 10 hours a week without sacrificing your existing pay check. But leveraging that extra 5 to 10 hours can produce tremendous rewards. In addition to the accomplishment of HELPing many people get healthy and FIT!
Consider the following offer:
Remember, in the corporate structure (Day Job) you (Or your Spouse) invest 40 hours a week for 40 years of your life to retire on 40% of what you were making.
So what if your boss asked you this. “I’d like you to put in an extra 5 hours a week. I’m not going to pay you anything extra for those 5 hours until 2 years from now. You must make a promise to do exactly what I tell you to on a daily basis for 2 years. Very simple tasks like talking to 2 people a day, listening to a conference call once a week, reading 10 pages in a good book once a day, sending out a couple of emails every week, attend a training once a month and share some success stories. All you have to do are these simple things consistently for 104 weeks in a row regardless of results for two years. If you say yes, I’ll let you retire in 2 years making 100% of what you’re making now for the rest of your life”.
What would you think of the offer?
Would you take it?
Answer these four questions:
1. You understand that if you miss one week, you will have to start your 2 years over again. You have to start from zero. Would you ever miss a week?
2. Would your spouse after two months encourage you to continue or to quit?
3. What if, in your 9th week, the routine became boring, would you risk changing it, knowing that if your boss found out, you would have to start all over again?
4. What if it took longer than two years? What if the offer were for 3 years or 5 years? Would you be willing?
I suspect it would be the easiest decision you have ever made and you would stick it out. You’d think you have the best boss in the world, you work for the greatest company, and you have an amazing offer… because you can retire in 2 years by simply doing simple activities daily that in the act of doing them by themselves make no difference… but compounded over 2 years allows you to retire and live your dreams.
What would you start thinking? Would you start planning for what you really want to do in life after two years? Would you start a countdown? “In just 86 weeks I can start doing what I really want to do.” With this kind of offer, these two years would probably be the most stress-free years of your life.
This offer exists with a good network marketing product\service. The rest is up to YOU.”
