Removing all white refined carbohydrates and added sugar from your diet is pivotal! If there is one thing for you to take home from these 8 weeks it is that sugar can be the leading “non-nutrient” that is keeping you from reaching your goals!
Refined carbohydrates and added sugar can lead to nutrient deficiencies and create cravings for other sugar rich foods, which can lead to weight gain and blood sugar issues. The goal is to keep our blood sugar steady throughout the day and we do that by eating foods full of fiber and complex carbohydrates, which don’t cause such dips in our blood sugar!
Focus here is on quality, wholesome foods from Mother Earth!
