Tips for combating sugar cravings

    Two weeks ago we spoke about why you shouldn’t always be looking to replace your favorite foods with sugar free options. For some of you, though, it’s not simple enough to say “I’m going to stop eating so much sugar” as sugar is so addictive and helps many people get through their afternoon hump or is their go-to after a long stressful day.  Why is this? Sugar creates a surge of energy and feel-good brain chemicals. Like a drug, your body craves that initial high more and more.    How can you work towards eating less? Start by looking for patterns. A lot of people tend to have certain times of day when they crave it more. Maybe it’s at 2 in the afternoon as you’re starting to need a pick me up or maybe it’s at night when you’re sitting in front of the TV. Whatever it may be, you must first understand when it’s happening to understand the underlying cause.   If you NEED sugar or an unhealthy snack to get your through your afternoon, chances are you’re either not eating regularly enough or you’re not eating enough nutrients. Be sure to eat every 2-3 hours and aim to eat 1-2 serving of vegetables at every meal. This will help make sure your blood sugar stays stable throughout the day and you never have that feeling of ‘I need to eat NOW’ which often leads to making poor food choices.  If you tend to eat large amounts of snack foods during times of mindless activity (watching tv, driving in the car etc) part of the... read more

You’re going on a diet!

You’re going on a diet. Immediately the cravings hit and you want to go for your favorite snack or soda. Not wanting to break your diet you notice some sugar free options are available that will give you your fix without killing your progress. But are they really worth it? Consider this thought before you head for the sugar free food. I could launch in to the potential long term risks that eating sugar free foods could lead to, but I assume most of you know this already. If you don’t, perhaps you could do some research. Instead I’m going to talk about how they affect your taste buds and future progress. If you have a lot troubles with consuming too many simple carbs (white breads, pasta, cereal etc) and too much sugar, you likely have a bit of a sugar addiction. Sugar is highly addictive. That’s why when we go on a diet your automatic reaction is to try to replace it with something equally as sweet. Maybe the sugar free options don’t have the same caloric affect, but the affect on the addiction is just as (if not more) damaging. Sugar free foods feed in to your sweet tooth and soon the foods you eat need to taste sweeter and sweeter to satisfy your craving. I know quite a few people who go on big calorie cuts and do so by loading up on sugar free foods. They lose the weight, but as soon as they’re done they go right back in to the bad eating habits they had previously (sometimes even worse than before). Why? Because... read more

The Fittest Community on Earth

The Fittest Community on Earth “The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth™. They are world-renowned as a grueling test for the toughest athletes on Earth as well as a thrilling experience for spectators. Since its inception in 2007, the CrossFit Games have become “one of the fastest growing sports in America,” according to Forbes. The Games were created to fill a void—no other true test of fitness existed. From Ironman triathlons to the NFL, all other athletic events neglected to accurately test fitness. Even decathlons, while testing a relatively wide range of abilities, missed vital components of physical fitness. The CrossFit Games events are made up of a broad range of functional movements. Functional movements move large loads, long distances, quickly. These movements also form the basis of our exercise program. Make no mistake—the CrossFit Games are designed to test, not train, fitness. The goal is to find the fittest athletes, not to produce an easily replicable workout program.” This is what the CrossFit Games are on paper but they are so much more than just a test of fitness. They highlight the true community of CrossFit. Thousands and thousands of CrossFit members and fitness fanatics gather every summer to watch the fittest athletes in the world compete. There is no bigger gathering of like minded individuals then the CrossFit Games. A community of people with one general understanding of being the best possible human being you can be. There is no other sport in the world where the last place finisher receives the loudest cheers and their fellow competitors come over... read more
