Not so sweet

Simple table sugar is highly processed, with no nutrients or fibre and totally concetrated....

Unfortunately for us our bodies love the stuff! Its gives us energy and drives our metabolism  

But this isn't what we naturally should be craving.... sucrose (fructose & glucose) has a harder hit on our system and can actually cause cravings, increase fat storage and cause disease! 

For this we need to cut down on soft drinks, sweets and processed foods - replace with whole foods, totally avoiding processed food that use sugar or corn syrup to make us addicted

Instead go for fruit high in water content like berries and melon. 

Alternatives: Honey, date sugar, stevia, coconut sugar, pure organic maple syrup
