    Apparently, your sugar craving is directly related to your last sugar rush, the bigger your last “fix” of sugar, the bigger your next craving will be…food for thought-no pun intended…enjoy your trip!

  2. Just stopped by your blog for the first time…I found it on a post from KERF. I like your thoughts on health and being healthy; I, too have an “athletic” body and once tried to become skinny. Needless to say, I got there, but my friends and family didn’t like how I looked. I am 5’5″ and 140 right now, but would like to get back to 120-125. I know my biggest problem is sugar and added sugar. Do you have any suggestions for me? Any cool workout ideas? Thanks and love your blog!

      All of my ‘recipes’ are refined sugar-free. They don’t necessary have less calories than sugar-options but your body will be nourished and fueled instead of depleted. I have a post called “Sugar Alternatives” that lays out the nutritional benefits of swapping sugar out for dates, honey, molasses, and stevia. As far as exercise goes, check out the post links on the I Move page…lots of ideas, especially for interval workouts which will boost your metabolism more than steady state workouts. Thanks so much for reading-and commenting!
