Lent Wellness Challenge Day 42

Lent Wellness Challenge Day 42

Yesterday we opened up the concept that sugar can be just as addictive as cocaine, tobacco or alcohol.  I was at a nutritional conference with Dr. Dan Murphy and he pulled up much research to support processed sugar is a significant contributor to plague n the arteries.  He suggested we consume sugars from natural food sources such as fresh fruit.   He wet on to say, while consuming fresh fruits and vegetables it is best for us to choose those high in antioxidants.  Antioxidant help neutralize “free radicals” rich cause aging and cancer. Blue berries, pomegranate, broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, and carrots are great foods for this.  Dark chocolate and red wine also provide antioxidants.

Murphy went on to say that many of our meats are grain feed and when we eat them we are eating corn and soy, (sugar source) which is linked to free radical production.  He suggested making sure our meats are grass feed or “free range”.

Sugar is everywhere!  A big trigger is over hungry.  If we allow ourselves to become over hungry we are more likely to feel we need sugar. (Feeling a sugar addiction)

The best way to prevent a sugar addiction is to concentrate on eating a well-balanced, natural diet high in fruits, vegetables and lean proteins.  Murphy suggested 10 servings of vegetables a day.  He said if you do supplement choose natural vitamins and grind them up for easy absorption.  Attack a sugar addiction.,
By getting in all your nutrients daily.

Knowledge helps us stay on track.
1 Colossians 1:10 “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in knowledge of God.”

How do you get in your proper amount of nutrients? 

Be fit and be blessed,
