Low-Sugar Diet and Losing Weight

One of the biggest reasons why you may have trouble losing weight is usually sugar. I know you’ve heard this before. If you look at how many people have type-2 diabetes, it’s rampant. Today I’m talking about how a low-sugar diet is a key to weight loss.

The obesity rate is rampant. It’s sugar. If you start reading labels, you’re going to realize that sugar is in almost everything you buy. By the end of the day, you’ve consumed so much sugar. That is actually stopping you from budging with your weight, no matter how much you work out. It’s down to spaghetti sauce. I mean, that even has added cane sugar. All the bars and the granola bars, even chips. It’s like, they literally add cane sugar to everything.

Added Sugar in Foods and Good Sugar

Now, cane sugar isn’t the only kind of sugar you need to watch out for. This is because there are some sugars that are better. Coconut sugar is better, but we’re talking about how is that responding in your body? You want your insulin levels to be nice and smooth all day. If you are eating sugar all day, this is how you feel inside. You’re up and then you’re down. Then you’re up and then you feel like crap, right?

You want to be energetic throughout the whole day. You don’t want to feel low. Then you eat, you get the energy, and the next thing you know you’re tired. So if you’re tired by 3:00, I’m telling you right now: that is a blood sugar handling issue. If you’re waking up in the middle of the night between 1 and 3 a.m., on a daily basis, guess what that is? That is a sugar handling issue.

Eat a Low-Sugar Diet by Reading the Labels

So, the best way to combat this problem is to read the labels. Cut out the sugar because there are alternatives without sugar in them. I promise you because that’s how. If you watch my video about all my snacks in my pantry, those are no sugar. None. And they’re natural ingredients. And this is also for your kids. You guys, your kids cannot be eating sugar all day long. This causes behavioral problems. I mean, we’re talking depression, anxiety, being maniacs 24/7.

Yes, kids have a lot of energy, don’t get me wrong. I have two crazy animals. But you will notice if you reel in the sugar, your kids will behave much better and will be much easier for you to handle. This goes for yourself as well. We will get emotional feelings from eating too much sugar. The point is to read the labels. Start pulling back on the sugar, and you will notice that it’s going to be easier for you to get to the weight you want. That was my take on why you need a low-sugar diet to lose weight.
