When we are talking about our health sugar seems to be more of an issue than alcohol or meat all together.
We often ask ourselves if we have the right to eat a candy or have an ice cream, feeling guilty that the answer is always, “Sure you do”.
But the key point is not to completely cut out sugar, but to also be aware of the intense effect that happens in our system when we take sugar. We become less sensitive and more reactive to any outside ‘prickles’ and experience very rapid ‘highs’ and ‘lows’. These effects usually lasts for a couple of hours, but it will take your system the next 72 hours until it has completely eliminated all the intakes.
So what are the alternatives to sugar?
We have maple syrup, which if eaten on toast has a very calming reaction on the nervous system. Or have you ever tried bananas with date-syrup on top?
This is full of iron, potassium, magnesium and calcium, and is a great food to eat in the evening since the magnesium and calcium help relax the muscles and sleep deeply.
You can try many alternatives ways to ‘the sugar issue’ but to make the right decision and fully let the effects of a sugar-free system manifest could take a while to incorporate into your life, but it will have its way into you. A great way, but very extreme, is to start a cleansing diet.
