What if I told you there was something you could do to decrease your depression, level out your mood swings, get better sleep, lose weight, fight disease and improve your overall health? Most of us would spend loads of money on whatever pill we had to take to get these results, am I right? Now what if I told you that the change is totally free? Too good to be true! What’s the catch? The catch is there is nothing you can add to medicine cabinet that could help you to achieve all of these results. It isn’t anything you can add at all, but something you must give up. Sugar. I know, now you’re thinking, “Great another health nut here to preach about diet fads”, but bear with me. I am not here to preach at all, simply to let you know that if you are struggling with depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, disease or weight issues (I think I just described the entire population of America..) Sugar could be the cause of some, or all, of these symptoms.
