We’re coming to the finish line of our 21-Day No Added Sweetener Challenge! How did you do? How did it feel? What did you notice about your cravings, your hunger level, your energy level or your weight?
Remember that by decreasing your intake of added sugars, research indicates you are lowering your risk of weight challenges, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, certain cancers, and depression. (Check out the research studies here.) While the Challenge officially concludes this Sunday, why not continue reading food labels for these ingredients and limit or avoid added sweeteners most days of the week? By avoiding or limiting added sweeteners most days, you can continue to have those great health benefits all year long! If, after having a slice of cake at a birthday party or enjoying chocolates over Valentine’s Day, you find your motivation to get back to low-sugar eating waning, remind yourself of the core values you identified. And most importantly, know we are hear to support and guide you whenever you need. Call our office anytime to schedule a one-on-one appointment with our weight loss and healthy eating experts. We’re here to help!
Congrats on your success thus far and wishing you even more health and happiness!
