What holds you back from having the body you’ve always wanted? Is there one clear answer? At Nimble Fitness, we know that there usually isn’t. There are a lot of different factors that contribute to your overall health and tone. You are a unique system. Let me ask you a simpler question: What is the ONE habit you can create that will make your body healthier today? If your answer is to cut your sugar intake—you get an A plus! The first step to better health and a leaner body is that simple. Let’s investigate what that entails, and what supporting habits require action on your part. Here’s a game plan for eliminating the sugar from your food choices:
- Don’t Miss Meals! Skipping meals affects our metabolism, energy and emotions, and limits the glucose supplies that reach our brains. And guess what your brain craves first when you are over-hungry—sugar! This also sets you up for eating too much at your next meal, because you are so hungry. Eating regular meals makes cutting sugar easier.
- Eat for Your Metabolic Type. The Metabolic Type concept is a book in itself, but to simplify and act on this, we just have to get to the heart of what type of nutrients best serve you. In other words, what combination of proteins, fats and complex carbohydrates (mostly found in whole plants) leaves you feeling your best? Eating an optimal combination will leave you feeling satisfied and with less sugar cravings.
- Now Skip the Sugar! If you’ve taken the steps of eating regular meals and getting a solid combination of protein, fats and complex carbs, then you’ve set yourself up for success in eliminating sugar. The final step is creating a stronger “why.” Use your imagination—let your mind overcome the drug-like attraction of sugar! Remember the byproducts of consuming sugar are inflammation, depression and weight gain, just to name a few.
You can do it! Start taking action on this habit today. And make sure to contact us at Nimble Fitness if you have any questions or want help on your healthy journey!
