HOW TO OVERCOME SUGAR CRAVINGS??
Eat fruit!! .
For so long I have kept my distance from fruit....well eating too much fruit. Or I would only eat berries because they were low in sugar. I actually believed there was no point to eat bananas because they were too high sugar.
Instead, because of dealing with chronic digestive issues for over 15 years now, I chose to stick to a more Paleo lifestyle and doing my best to follow a pretty gluten free diet while also keeping my sugar low.
Did it help? It did with some of my symptoms because I was cutting out a lot of processed foods. But today, I am now dealing with autoimmune... #hashimotos .
I am now re-educating myself on the power that fruits have to heal. They grow in abundance for a reason. Their sugars will not harm us. But yes, eating processed sugars and junk food will. It is absolutely different. Our bodies need these precious minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and purified living water from fruits.
My body feels so good eating a meal like this. It seems to cool it down and bring it back in balance. Plus fruit tastes so good and I don't crave the junk I once did. Tell me, what's your favorite???

Step-by-Step Shoulder Opener at Wall:
For the standing variation
1. Face the wall and extend your right arm out parallel to the floor, with your palm flat against the wall.
Slowly rotate your body open towards the left.
Take one full inhale and exhale, and then go deeper.
Do not rush.
Go to the point that feels juicy and hold for 5-10 breaths then switch sides.
2. Place your forearms on the wall parallel to one another below shoulder height, keeping your elbows shoulder-distance apart (you can measure this by grabbing opposite elbows).
Take a few steps back from the wall and allow your head torelax down between your arms. Breathe here for 5 deep breaths.
***open the shoulders, giving you more flexibility and allowing deeper backbends.
THE STRONGEST NATURAL ANTI-INFLAMMATORY KNOWN TO MAN⚡️
Autoimmunity means a consistently revved up immune system. In attempt to protect you from foreign invaders, this immune response results in chronic inflammation--- this is the groundwork for the constant pain, swelling and fatigue that #autoimmunewarriors feel on a day-to-day basis.
One way we can reduce this inflammation and help to modulate the immune system is by incorporating the cruciferous veggies (Brussel's sprouts, broccoli, broccoli sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, arugula etc.) into our daily food intake.
These vegetables work to reduce inflammation via the enzyme myrosinase. Myrosinase is the precursor to the strongest natural anti-inflammatory known to man, SULFORAPHANE.
Sulforaphane is the most potent after the myrosinase has been frozen. This allows for breaking down of the plant tissue and a higher release of the enzyme. While all cruciferous vegetables contain myrosinase, the highest amounts of found in broccoli sprouts. Put fresh broccoli sprouts in the freezer and add them to your smoothies daily for the strongest impact.
Cruciferous vegetables will further help by feeding your friendly gut bacteria (fibre) and by increasing the amounts of L-glutathione (strongest antioxidant in the body) which helps promote detoxification and removal of toxins.
There is no magic pill or magic drink. If there was, then everyone would be skinny. Everyone finds what works for them. When I first started Herbalife, I was only buying not coaching. I thought to myself, I already drink protein drinks, these have better nutrition, why not just swap them out. So I did. First I noticed that they taste way better lol. I even feel fuller longer with them. They are stevia which is a bonus for me. Herbalife is not a lose 10lbs this week but it's a process to get all the old junk out and the new healthy in. An average person that loses weight healthy is to lose 1 to 2lbs weekly. This way you won't gain it back as easily as a crash diet. So I did lose a lot of bloat at first but now I'm working on toning. Herbalife has a product line for this and mixed with energy, which I love. This is what works for me! #work#workout#nutritional#nutrition#love#protein#proteinshake#rebuild#strength#fitfam#fitfam#fitnessmotivation#fitness
