Here’s how to CUT OUT harmful sweets and sugars now that the holidays are over

Natural News) We get it: Those holiday sweets and treats are often very difficult to pass up, which is why we tend to pack on the pounds during the final month of the year. But you know what you have to do now, right?

Right. It’s time to give them up, though we grant you, that may be easier said than done.

And why is that? It’s because sugar is very addictive, and intentionally so. Junk food makers rely on it to keep you coming back for more. In fact, as Natural News has reported, sugar has been named the “most addictive and dangerous” substance of our time.

In addition to piling on the pounds, high sugar diets “are linked to increased risk of a number of health conditions” like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

But despite knowing that, it’s still hard to give up those sweet treats and then follow through on your plan, which — if successful — will give you better concentration, increased energy, better sleep, clearer skin, balanced hormones, and of course weight loss.

If you find yourself needing a little help shedding your post-holiday sugar urge, try these suggestions to help you start the new year lighter and healthier, as reported by the U.K.’s Daily Mail:

For instance, do you begin your week sticking to your dietary plans but the weaken as the days go on? Eat sweets at the office? Do you like to snack late in the evening? Once you figure out your triggers you can address your weak moments.

After you drink a can of Coke … here’s what happens to your body

A reminder from Natural News of what sugar does to our bodies. 

“Cleaning a toilet is cheap and easy with a can of Coca-Cola. After the Coke sits in the toilet for an hour, the carbonic and phosphoric acid gets the job done, leaving behind a scum-free toilet bowl!

When that same can of Coke is poured into the mouth and down the esophagus of a human being, a much more complex chain of events occurs. After burning its way down the throat and leaving behind a film of caramel coloring on the teeth, the Coca-Cola begins its nutritional destruction on the inside of the body...”  Read More
