Sugar is the Devil

Read this to find out why you should be working to diligently eliminate refined sugar and artificial sweeteners from your diet:

As detailed by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin in their book Skinny Bitch, sugar adds no nutritional value to your diet--it's just empty calories--and it's addictive. The more you eat, the more you'll crave. If you want to eat less and reduce caloric intake, you have to reduce to a minimum the amount of sugar you ingest.

And, it's not just refined sugar, corn syrup should be avoided at all costs, and don't think you're doing yourself any favors by switching to some chemical laden artificial sweetener.

Work to banish sugar, corn syrup and artificial sweeteners from your everyday diet. It's OK every now and again to enjoy a fresh homemade cookie, ice cream, a really fabulous dessert at a top notch restaurant, or a piece of cake at a party.

But your goal should be to gradually eliminate all three from your everyday diet. I say gradually, because as I noted above, sugar is addictive. If you try to eliminate it too quickly your cravings for the sweet stuff may sabotage your plans.

If you have a sweet tooth (and who doesn't) stock your house with maple syrup, stevia, honey and molasses. And, by maple syrup, I mean the real stuff they gather from trees. The artificial syrup is nothing more than boiled down refined sugar with maple flavoring tossed in.
