STEP 1: REDUCE YOUR CONSUMPTION OF ADDED SUGARS
JUST DON’T SNACKThe healthy snack is one of the greatest weight-loss deceptions.
The myth that ‘grazing is healthy’ has attained legendary status. If we were meant to ‘graze’, we would be cows.
Grazing is the direct opposite of virtually all food traditions. Even as recently as the 1960’s people only ate three meals per day.
Constant stimulation of insulin leads to insulin resistance.
The solution? Stop eating all the time.
Snacks are often little more than thinly disguised desserts.
Most contain prodigious amounts of refined flour or sugar.
These pre-packaged conveniences have taken over the supermarket shelves.
Are snacks necessary? No. Simply ask yourself this question. Are you really hungry or just bored? Keep snacks completely out of sight.
If you have a snack habit replace that habit loop with one that is less destructive to your health. Perhaps a cup of green tea in the afternoon should be your new habit.
There’s a simple answer to the question of what to eat at snack time.
Nothing. Don’t eat snacks. Simplify your life. Period.
