Wednesday, October 10

I have to remind myself a lot that I live in a health and fitness bubble. I am surrounded by people that care about what they eat and how they exercise most of the time, so it’s easy to forget that there is a world out there that does not pay attention to this stuff.

Luckily, I get to go on vacation every once in a while and see the other world that’s out there, and it’s a nice reminder that we have a lot of work to do to continue spreading the knowledge of a healthy diet and exercise routine.

This video popped up on Youtube the other day and I liked it because it’s not from a personal trainer, coach or nutrition expert. It is just normal people that decided to quit sugar for 30 days.

They give a good, honest assessment of what it is like to quit sugar and how they felt throughout the process. It’s not easy to quit cold-turkey, and you’re probably going to feel bad for some of the early days, but it is worth it.

Doing an experiment like this doesn’t mean you can never have sugar again, but it will help you see how much added sugar is in all of the processed foods out there. And, once again, it’s about having the knowledge to combat the food industry that is trying to get you addicted to their foods.
