Three Tips for Sugar Addicts

Three tips for sugar addicts
  1. Like many addictions, there are physical problems driving your sugar cravings. This simple quiz will identify your addiction type ― and simple treatments can then eliminate the sugar cravings and leave you feeling much better!
  2. Do you get "Feed me NOW or I'll kill you" moments? These reflect exhaustion of your adrenal stress handler glands. Instead of drinking a soda (3/4 spoons of sugar per ounce) which will put you on the sugar roller coaster, just put 1-2 tic tacs (or 1/2-1 packet of sugar) under your tongue and then eat a high protein snack (e.g., eggs, meat, fish, cheese, nuts). The sugar in two tic tacs is enough sugar to break the attack without putting you on the sugar roller coaster!
  3. Are you tired and reaching for "energy loan shark" drinks to keep you going? Instead, make a morning energy drink with a good vitamin powder (e.g., the Energy Revitalization System vitamin powder) plus one scoop of a special supplement called ribose. Our recent study showed that ribose increased energy an average of over 60% in three weeks!
