This doesn’t mean you wont get any desserts, I promise!
Cutting out the refined sugar, means processed candy bars, candy, desserts, ice cream, gum-things that contain the refined sugar. There are options in ALL of these that do not have the refined white sugar, so all is not lost. Refined white sugar is the white sugar that you are used to buying from the grocery store.
Refined sugar is not from a natural source and has been through several processes to refine it and make it what it is today.
Here is the problem with the refined white sugar:
- First because of the process in which it is refined it becomes a poison in the body. This feeds the bacteria, fungus and viruses in our body’s such as candida which causes an array of health problems. It is making us sick. If you have not watch this great documentary FED UP on Netflix it is really good. Here is the trailer below:
- Second is the AMOUNT we eat. We think what we eat is normal because that is what we grew up with. What are parents ate is normal because their parents fed them that way. Year after year the amounts increase.
- It weakens the next generation. Our system and pancreas gets weaker and weaker with the amount we eat. We then pass on that weak genetic code to our posterity. With each generation getting a weaker genetic code and then the “normal” amounts of white sugar increase. We have kids now that have been given body’s that CAN NOT handle the amounts of sugar and they are going diabetic at young ages. The refined sugar intake is what is causing the diabetes and blood clots that cause heart attacks to increase.
The reason to switch this out is because this is not a natural form of sugar.
It has been bleached and refined, and like the white flour. When something has been refined again and again to take it from its natural form the worse it is for you. The further anything is from its natural form the lower the frequency and the more toxic it is.
Like it was discussed earlier, the amounts that we think are normal are not normal and our body’s are not made to handle it. Check out the chart to see how much we are consuming. On average it is about 130 lbs of sugar a year according to the US National reports.
There are solutions! I did tell you that just because you cut this out does not mean you get no desserts.
You can make cookies, cakes, ice cream, have gum and anything you want by making a switch to other sources such as raw honey, organic maple, raw agave, molasses, coconut sugar, and stevia.
You can get stevia in a powder or liquid drops, it is the only sweetener that does not feed candida or fungus in the body and is the most natural.
The sweetener I choose depends on the recipe.
You can find dessert and snack recipes on the Food Recipe page. Switching this one out will change your health in so many ways and keep you and your family from developing diabetes.
Enzymes Are So Important
When you eat refined white sugar, your body needs the enzyme Lipase to digest it. When you body no longer has this enzyme your pancreas shuts down and can no longer help regulate your blood sugar levels.
Helping your body by switching out the refined sugars will help take the pressure and stress off of your pancreas. Take a proactive stance in your health so that you or your family do not develop diabetes or weaken your immune system. Help the next generation be stronger not weaker!
