Cutting The Sugar Can Curb The Wrinkles
how reducing sugar and intake can keep you feeling younger
Cutting sugar consumption will not only help make you skinnier, it may help keep you looking younger, too.
Researchers have found that high levels of sugar consumption can lead to dull and wrinkled skin. Proteins in your bloodstream attach or "glycocylate" to the sugars to form harmful molecules called Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs). The more sugar in your diet, the more AGEs in your bloodstream.
As the AGEs in your bloodstream increase, they begin damaging collagen and elastin, the protein fibers that keep your skin firm and elastic. Noticeable damage starts at about age 35, when once springy and resilient collagen and elastin become dry and brittle, leading to wrinkled and sagging skin. Glycation weakens the collagen and decreases the body's natural ability to protect itself from the harmful effects of the sun, a major cause of skin aging.
How To Cut The Sugar and Curb The Wrinkles
1.) Cut back on foods that have added sugars.
2.) Check nutrition facts panel for sugars.
3.) Always watch out for hidden sugars.
4.) Keep yourself hydrated.
Drinking 64 ounces of water everyday will smooth the wrinkles and keep you healthy. While it may sound like an easy task, it can get a little boring. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder. Now, start splashing.

Low Glycemic Carb Low Sugar Strawberry Cream Pie
Carbs Per Serving: 8 g
Prep Time:<30 minutes
Skill Level: Easy
I am working on a top secret fruit filling alternative for a client. I bought a bunch of Strawberries at the market to use for bench testing the recipe. I had quite a few left over and got a hankering for a Strawberry Cream Pie. While I am still a ways off on a solution for my client I have to say I nailed the pie. This recipe is super easy to make, is low in sugar making it safe for diabetics and absolutely delicious.
2 cups of fresh or frozen strawberries
1 cup ground pecans
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoon Fructevia, Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or a dash to taste of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 teaspoon Fructevia, Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or a dash to taste of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder
1 (.6 ounce) package Knox (flavorless) gelatin or for more strawberry taste you can use sugar-f r e e Strawberry Jello.
1/3 cup boiling water
1/3 cup cold water
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, cut into pieces and softened
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1. In a medium bowl, mix together 1 cup ground pecans, butter, 2 teaspoon Fructevia, Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or a dash to taste of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder and 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract. Press firmly into bottom and up sides of an 8 inch pie plate; refrigerate until firm.
2. In a small bowl, whip the heavy cream with 3 teaspoon Fructevia, Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or a dash to taste of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder until soft peaks form. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl with high sides, mix the gelatin with boiling water until all the gelatin has dissolved. Then stir in the cold water. With an electric mixer, slowly beat in the cream cheese. After all cream cheese is added, add Strawberries, and beat at high speed until smooth. Carefully fold in the whipped cream. Use a spatula to scrape mixture into the pie pan and spread around. Refrigerate several hours or overnight to allow gelatin to set thoroughly.
