Sugar Is Toxic – My Journey

We all know that sugar is bad for us. Yes??
If you didn’t then maybe you have been hiding under a rock! Remember the Dentist telling you how sugar can hurt your teeth?
Sugar is toxic For our bodies, our teeth and our overall health!
 Unfortunately sugar is in almost everything!!
This past month while on an extended vacation in Maine I realized so much about how Sugar affects me and my son especially since we have been 99% Sugar free now for three years. I figured I am on vacation why not enjoy.  There were birthday parties, dinners out, and of course staying in someone elses home. My control was a bit limited.

I  tried to be careful on what I ate but many times it was a challenge. The only thing that I introduced into my body that I had not had in a long time was food with Sugar.  It made me sick in ways that I have not felt in years. I was hurting my body, and yes even my sons. I should have been a stronger person but now that  I know how it affects us It will never happen again. 

 
It is now one of my top priorities and a passion of mine help spread the education of this toxin to others, my family, my friends; on the dangers of consumption of sugar.
I am by no means an expert but what I will be sharing with you on my experiences over the next few weeks will hopefully help you to think twice about the foods you are purchasing, and consuming.
I will be doing some videos and blogs in the coming weeks sharing my journey with and without sugar with you all when I return home.
Like body aches, mental fog, exhaustion, digestive issues just to name a few!!

I see so many people that I care about that are trying to live a healthier lifestyle, yet sugar is everywhere in their home, in their lives!

We all have heard the research, maybe even seen a few videos but if you are still consuming it then you are putting you and your family at risk!

I want to share with you some research and a documentary that I found while doing some research!!
