  • BECOME SELF-AWARE.
  • try to see a set back as just that - part of the journey , not the destination.
  • recognise your personal ‘warning signs’ and make a change to help yourself on your journey to wellness.
why no added sugar according to current literature
Why no added sugar? According to current literature
  • Over 70% of immune system is in the gut.
  • Sugar and refined carbohydrates feed bad bacteria creating an environment that’s not beneficial for optimum digestion.
  • sugar reduces the effectiveness of our white blood cells by 40%.
  • Once refined sugar enters the bloodstream, it attaches to proteins to form harmful new molecules.
  • Refined sugar causes a sharp increase in blood glucose levels which then causes the body to work hard to reduce it again.
  • By decreasing refined sugar intake we can increase our emotional stability which will boost our health & wellbeing.
do you recognise these
Do you recognise these?
  • Corn syrup ....honey ..Glucose.......Maltose ... Fructose ,Dextrose .. dextrin .... sucrose.. Agave syrup .......................
  • They all mean one thing – sugar.
  • Do your own ‘spot check’ on

foods that you buy – you will

be amazed how many contain

a form of sugar. ..... Cheese

biscuits! ... Savoury sauces!

  • Research has also linked increased sugar consumption to higher rates of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
