Watch Out For Liquid Calories
“that big gulp will make you big”

Soft drinks and high sugar fruit juices will kill your weight loss plan. They contain huge amounts of sugar and calories and are easily consumed since they are in liquid form. A 44 ounce super big gulp of coke contains a whopping 415 calories of pure sugar. This amount of sugar causes a massive insulin spike and causes you to get hungry very soon after drinking it. By simply switching to diet soda, you can cut a huge amount of excess calories and start losing weight. Although this is a good start, you ideally want to switch to water for your primary liquid source.

Make sure to always check your fruit juices for high amounts of processed sugar. Look on the ingredients list for "high fructose corn syrup" which is another name for sugar and see how high it is on the list. The first ingredients listed usually contain the largest amounts. The majority of fruit juices on the market are nothing more than flavored sugar water. A great alternative is to buy a good juicer and make your own fruit juice. This will provide the highest level of freshness and nutrients when compared to processed versions. Juicing using real fruit provides the natural source of fruit sugar called "fructose".

What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon or 4 tablespoons of unsweetened cranberry juice 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.

Have an excellent week.

YOUR MIND

If You Really Really Want It, You Can Have It!

Max Steingart

If you're willing to pay the price, any of your circumstances will change. If you want something badly enough, you're sure to get it. The key to success is desire.

Obstacles don't matter very much. Pain, circumstances or other challenges can be there. But if you want to do something bad enough, you'll find a way to get it done.

Your desire will in time externalize itself into concrete fact. Your reality will form around your commitment to succeed.

You only have to love a thing greatly to get it. Desire is the fire of life.

YOUR BODY

Weight Loss Take Patience and Focus

Be patient and don't get discouraged if you're not losing weight fast enough. Remember, it didn't take you 3 weeks to gain those extra 20 pounds so it sure as heck will not take only 3 weeks to lose it!

Create a smart plan of attack and focus on losing the correct kind of weight, which is body fat. You should set a weekly goal of 1 pound per week. This way you will have a much better chance of keeping the weight off for a lifetime.

YOUR SPIRIT

Feed Your Soul

"Certain activities, attitudes, foods, and persons support the cultivation of an unconscious life. They draw us away from our center. They throw us off-balance. They deplete the soul."
-- Patricia Lynn Reilly

Some activities we think are restful are, in fact, draining. Set an intention to really become aware of how you feel after you’ve engaged in different activities. Solitude and awareness help us make better choices for ourselves.

"Enlightenment is not about imagining figures of light but of making the darkness conscious."
-- C.G. Jung
