My ticket to the finish line
Submitted by ctmiller on 11/21/2011 - 11:38
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve paid more attention to the amount of sugar I consume by following the advice of Jorge Cruise’s book, “The Belly Fat Cure.”
I’m starting to believe this might be the ticket to finally losing these last few clinging pounds – pounds that are clinging to my middle. I’ve never been one to put sugar in my coffee or on my cereal or even over-indulge in high sugar sweets, but just checking the labels of everyday foods proves I really consume more sugar than I thought. Understanding how our bodies respond to sugar and how it affects the storage or use of fat makes it all the easier to say no to the remaining pieces of Halloween candy or a bedtime snack of seemingly innocent fat-free yogurt (with its 26 grams of sugar in a 6 ounce serving).
Other than a few short walks, I haven’t exercised much this week. So, when I stepped on the scales and saw that I’ve lost 3 pounds, I couldn’t help but exclaim, “SWEET”. Pun intended!!
