You wouldn’t give your family narcotic drugs, would you?
Because it’s addictive?
Because you know it causes long term damage?
Because it does more harm in the long term than bring happiness for that “high”?
Because it’s Amoral?
Then why, do you keep stuffing sugar down your family’s throat?
Oh you don’t? are you sure?
How many times in this week have you given your family anything which contain the following?
- Honey (used as an additive in several dishes, drinks and syrups)
- Sugar (every desert and candy)
- High fructose corn syrup (many of the flavored drinks have this)
- Starch/Carbohydrates (Oatmeal, potatoes, rice, chips, canned foods, etc)
- Fruit juice (including the naturally /freshly squeezed ones)
Do you think this much sugar, in this much variety, with such easy access, and at such affordable prices was available to the common person before 1920?
This reputed 5 min long video from ted will break it down for you, after which, we’ll give you the first steps you need to take to make a change, but only if that’s what you want. We are not forcing you, it’s your choice.
The human brain triggers a pleasure response as you consume sugar, in the same way nicotine, alcohol and other hard drugs do. Sugar is far more widespread, hidden in many food products and is addictive. It’s also messes up the body’s receptors and keeps forcing the body to store more fat.
We don’t advocate a Lifestyle low in carbohydrates for everyone, we’re simply pointing out that the disproportionate use of sugars and carbs in their many forms have become the norm and it’s literally killing your family slowly and painfully, setting them up for a bad future.
Yes there is a solution to this and it’s through a very healthy shift in your diet, lowering the consumption of carbs and increasing your consumption of healthy forms of fats.
Yes! there are healthy forms of fats which actually help your body when included in a balanced meal plan.
Here are a few things you need to do:
1. You need to make the shift permanent in your entire household.
This means that you have to maintain a strong resolve for your family. There will be a few complaints and inconviniences in making the transition, but it pays off in the long run when everyone gets slimmer, fitter and lowers their risk of heart disease and diabetes. There are many ways to prepare tasty, different, low carb meals, which make sure you get the nutrients your family needs. We’ll be adding many recipes on our site.
2. Go “cold turkey” and eliminate all the sugar inside the house. (including the fruit juice)
With our busy, hectic and stressful lives, we are programmed to eat what’s conveniently available close to us. The logic is very simple, make tasty low carb foods available in your kitchen and watch your family make the switch naturally.
You’ll always get some complaining until they eat something like a delicious meal of well cooked stake, gravy and mash.
For those of you who still have doubt’s of going all out in the house, and right now you’re thinking something along the lines of:
“but whats the harm in keeping just a “little bit” of juice around the house?”
Ask yourself if you’d also keep just a little bit of narcotic hard drugs lying around the house?
Would KILLING your family be okay if it’s “just a little bit at a time”?
Our point is that, your kids, parents, roommate and partner will be forced to consume sugar when they go to school, office, and to work, especially when low carb alternatives aren’t available to them.
3. Lead by example.
Show your family and your friends what you’ve done.
Show off, flaunt your success and make them envy you.
Eventually more people will follow in your footsteps.
Just don’t go stuffing it in other people’s face like Mr Mackey from southpark.
