30 Day Get Healthy Challenge, Day 10

day 10

That sweet tooth of yours is souring your health.

Everybody likes a sweet treat now and then, but when it becomes a daily habit, or worse yet the capper of every meal, it can really derail your health and fitness plans.  Over-consumption of refined sweeteners has been linked to obesity, diabetes, cancers, and a whole host of other chronic diseases.

If you feel you must have a sweet with every meal, start by substituting with locally sourced raw honey, fresh fruit, or berries.  As you begin to cut back on refined sugars, you’ll grow to appreciate the natural sweetness in foods.  And as your cravings subside, you’ll gradually be able to cut back on the number of sweets that you’re eating.

Your palate is diverse and requires a wide variety of tastes and flavors to fully experience the beauty of food-sweets included.  But with a little practice and discipline you can dump the refined sugars (and your bodily inflammation right along with them) and satisfy your sweet cravings naturally.
