For years now, I have called the 5th of July Sugar Freedom Day. There is something about Summer in the USA that makes it easier to replace sugar, grains, seed oils, and the cheap junk foods that are made from them with the un-processed foods that are available locally.
In our county, the farmer’s markets are open, and locally raised meat and eggs are plentiful. All of the ingredients of the Sugar Freedom food plan can be found in the outer aisles of your local grocery store as well.
In the garden, we’ve planted tomatoes, zucchini, radishes, carrots, and herbs, plus the blackberries will be ripe in a week or two. Once the appetite increasing, craving causing processed foods have been crossed off of your menu, natural local foods will taste simply wonderful, and they will satisfy your hunger without leaving you craving second helpings or a late night snack. Many of the videos I have posted at: YouTube.com/c/sugarfreedom reveal the science behind sugar cravings, addiction, and overeating. When you cut out sugar, grains, and seed oils inflammation heals, hunger hormones like leptin,ghrelin, and cortisol get back into balance, and eating a healthy diet becomes simple and natural.
An omelet made with local eggs at breakfast, a fresh tossed salad with roasted chicken at lunch, and a rib-eye steak with broccoli for dinner Is so satisfying that the sweet, starchy foods I used to crave are simply forgotten. With Sugar Freedom, my readers and I have been able to not only change what we eat, we have been able to change what we want to eat. That has made all the difference.
