3 ways to kickstart your Halloween sugar detox …..
It’s a few days after Halloween, a holiday beloved by young children and candy manufacturers alike. For the past few weeks, you’ve been exposed to sugar and fat in various formats, with the climax occurring during last night’s Trick or Treat ritual.
It’s a new day, a new month, and time to say goodbye to your sugar hangover.
1. Throw out all the left-over candy. Do this first thing in the morning. Someone smart once said – “out of sight, out of mind”. You can’t eat unhealthy food if it isn’t in your house.
2. Eat home made food today. Make vegetables the star of every meal, whether a tart raita (savory yogurt salad) for breakfast, green-leaf salad topped with lean chicken breast for lunch, or roasted root vegetables with a side of broiled fish for dinner.
3. Drink lots of water. Contrary to popular belief, the kidneys don’t flush out excess glucose. However, every cup of water is one less cup of sugary beverages or juice.
How are you dealing with all that sugar?
