Just Think: You Can Be Free of Your Cravings for Processed Sweets & Carbs
While we celebrate Independence Day weekend in the United States, I invite you to think about how glorious it will feel to Celebrate Sugar Independence.
Even if you now feel trapped, discouraged and overwhelmed by your sugar addiction, imagine that you’ve actually broken free of over-attachment to sugar. Here are 8 Reasons to Celebrate Your Sugar Independence.
1) When you’ve kicked sugar and processed carbs, you’ll enjoy a delicious feeling of freedom.
You know how your sugar and carb addiction makes you feel trapped, burdened and weighed down (emotionally and literally, of course)?
Well, the reverse can be true. When you no longer have a sugar or carb addiction dogging you, you’ll feel the most amazing feeling of freedom.
2 ) When you turn your back on sugar and achieve Sugar Independence, you’ll Enjoy a Sweeter Life Naturally.
Admittedly, the taste of sweet snacks and desserts may entice you, but only momentarily. That sugar “rush” will vanish pretty quickly, and you’ll feel wiped out, discouraged and disappointed in yourself.
But when you Let Your Sugar Addiction go, Life is Sweeter Naturally, as I like to say.
3) When you shed sugar, you’ll easily shed weight, too. Maybe you’ll even turn heads soon. (more…)
As your Cravings Ninja™, I’m here to show you how to achieve Sweet Victory over your powerful cravings for junk foods full of sugar, carbs, fat and salt so you can easily, quickly ignore temptation, shed pounds, and step into your willpower.
So why am I talking about your need to become a “Cravings Ninja”?
Crush Cravings & Avoid Agave, Sweeteners, Honey, Gluten or Dairy
Ever since I began eating cleanly more than a decade ago (no sugar, no agave, no honey, no barley malt and no other sweeteners, plus, no dairy and no gluten), I’ve been hunting for high-quality, nutrient-rich, dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free protein powders to use in my nutrient-rich Cacao-Cado-Chia-Berry Protein Shake every morning.
But this week, in particular, I’m actually surviving and thriving on Power Shakes alone, because I’m recovering from painful dental surgery, can’t eat solid foods for a week, and need ample protein to quickly heal my sore mouth.
So protein powders are on my mind, and I’m so grateful that in recent years, I’ve found plenty of sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free protein powders. Here are my current 8 Favorite Sugar-Free Protein Powders, which can help you get valuable nutrients that you might otherwise not get.
Frankly, it weren’t for my morning shakes, especially this week — when I can’t have any solid food due to dental surgery — I’d be starving or fainting. So here are the protein powders I like best. Please note that I recommend the unflavored ones so you won’t get any sugar, agave, honey or other sweeteners. Since I like all of these options, I’ve put them in alphabetical order. (more…)
Helping You Crush Your Cravings, Quit Sugar and Get Good Health
Wow, it’s my blogiversary. For 15 years now — ever since 2005, two years before publication of my first book, Sugar Shock — I’ve been dedicated to educating and entertaining readers of my blog with eye-opening, helpful tips, insights and info.
Over the years, I’ve written about a wide variety of health topics, including sugar addiction, health trends and tidbits and more recently (as in the past two years) about cravings. In fact, every week I post tips, information or insights to Crush Your Cravings or motivate you. (That’s why I call them either Cravings-Crushing Monday or Your Motivating Monday.
Here are some of my Craving-Crushing Monday posts:
Meet the Amazing GABA -- Guest Post, Thanks to Trudy Scott, Food Mood Expert & Certified Nutritionist
Note from Connie: Do you feel anxious, overwhelmed or stressed out? Would you like help to calm down, sleep better, and Crush Your Cravings?
What if if you could quiet your mind, easily relax, cut out insomnia and calm your cravings without taking drugs?
You may want to try GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA), a neurotransmitter that sends chemical messages through the brain and the nervous system. Recently, I rediscovered GABA, thanks to a nutritionist, who’s helping me with my anxiety over health and housing challenges.
‘GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) is one of my top nutrient recommendations for clients with physical tension, anxiety, overwhelm and panic attacks. I’m often asked if it really works and is it even worth taking so here is some feedback from practitioners from theAnxiety Summit, all of whom I consider experts on the topic.’
But, let’s face it, most of us probably won’t change our unhealthy tech habits once the sun sets. For my part, my bad habit (or babit™, as I call it)—which, I’ve almost broken—is that I write blog posts or books into the wee hours.
What about you? Do you, too, have any of these popular 21st-century bad electronic habits?
