Drop Sugar and Drop Weight
eliminating sugar in its many forms

Eating your favorite breakfast cereal or multi grain bread may not be a healthy choice, despite the barrage of advertisements to the contrary. Sugar transforms into triglycerides which are the chemical form in which most fat exists in body. Regardless of whether it's added as table sugar, consumed in ice cream, converted through high glycemic carbs or swallowed in sugary soft drinks in the form of high fructose corn syrup which actually contains little fructose and mostly glucose.

Avoid Blood Sugar Spikes and Drop Weight
Cut back, or even eliminate sugar in its many forms to drop risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Excess sugar and carbohydrates are the primary reason so many people are unable to lose weight, as it wreaks havoc on your metabolism, causing sharp spikes in blood sugar.

This results in excess residual blood sugar, which is eventually converted to triglycerides for storage as fat. Break the sugar rush cycle, and your body will begin to function properly by releasing excess fat, with weight loss as a natural result.

Use Sugar Natural Substitutes
The first step to removing sugar from your diet is to replace sugars added to food and drink with low-calorie substitutes. The best options are the all natural sweetener, Fructevia, Steviva Blend or Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder . Avoid using any product containing sucralose or aspartame, as they have been linked to brain cell excitation, neurologic disorders and other health issues.

Swap Fruit for Sweets
Your ultimate goal is to eliminate sugar in all its different disguises entirely from your diet. This is best done slowly through a carefully planned series of substitutions.

Fruit works well, as it has the same sweet taste as sugar, yet for most people doesn't promote the rapid blood sugar surge due to its fiber content. Grab an apple instead of cake for dessert, or have a healthy bowl of mixed fruit and berries instead of your favorite breakfast cereal. Include a protein source to further level the blood sugar response.

Research is shining a bright light on how causes metabolic alterations which promote the storage of fat. In order to drop our risk from this number one killer, and naturally lose weight, we must slowly cut back and remove sugar in all forms from our diet.

We consume sugar from many sources, including table sugar, baked goods, breads and drinks. A plan which methodically eliminates sugar entirely will have a positive impact on our overall health and assist in natural weight loss.

Have an excellent day.

Low Glycemic Carb Low Sugar Vegan Raw Food Cookies
Serves: 24
Carbs Per Serving: 7.1 g
Prep Time:<30 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

The raw food diet is a craze right now. A raw food diet based on unprocessed and uncooked plant foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouts, seeds, grains, beans, nuts and dried fruit.

It is asserted that heating food above 110 degrees F is believed to destroy enzymes in food that can assist in the digestion and absorption of food. Cooking is also thought to diminish the nutritional value and "life force" of food.

My little sister, Jill who goes by Kin's, shared this recipe with me a while back and I made it yesterday and just pulled it out of the dehydrator this morning. These cookies were amazing and really good for you. I made a few tweaks to it but, I think it made them better. ;)

2 cups Raw Cashews
1 cup Raw Almonds
1 cup Raw Walnuts
1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
a pinch of salt
1/8 cup Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a dash to taste of
Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder


Quantities can be fudged, this is a very forgiving recipe.

Make sure to buy 'raw' nuts and not roasted. If it doesn't say 'raw', it is roasted.

Soak nuts overnight by simply putting nuts in glass jars and fill to the top with water. Soaking releases enzymes.

Drain nuts and put them in a food processor. Blend thoroughly until it is smooth but not too smooth.

Put the nuts and the remaining ingredient in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Form balls and shape into cookies.

Dehydrate at 105ish degrees (to maintain raw enzymes) for probably 24 hours or desired consistency. If you don't have a dehydrator no worries. Simple set your oven to warm with the door cracked.
