Something to think about: a vicious cycle

Did you know this about Sugar Addiction?                                                             

You may have noticed feeling cravings soon after starting a diet plan. As you begin to take in more alkaline foods you start to leave highly acidic and sugary foods behind. Since your body has become so accustomed to these substances, it feels it needs them and thus begins to signal this through food cravings. You will notice from studying your alkaline food chart that sugar is extremely acidic. This creates a nightmare within your body by messing with the body’s normal way of using sugars.

A Toxic Cycle

Sugar and glucose are essential to providing immediate energy needs and vital energy for your brain. The body’s normal response to a drop in blood sugar levels is to tell the liver to use its reserves to make glucose and to tell the brain to trigger the hunger mechanism. But when the environment within the body is too acidic this cause certain yeasts to quickly multiply. These little yeasts have huge appetites and start to eat and ferment the glucose, robbing from your body for its own use. This cycle repeats itself as the yeast excrete toxic wastes and contribute to even more acidity, which in turn keeps allowing more yeast to be produced and so on. This is an unending cycle as long as one continues to consume too much sugar.

Soft Drink Addiction

One craving you may have difficulty with comes from letting go of colas. If you were use to having one with every meal you have definitely thrown off your body’s PH level and encouraged the yeast cycle to develop. Along with being loaded with sugar, soft drinks also contain phosphoric acid which is highly acidifying. Taking in a lot of empty calories with no nutritional value is another reason to cut out soft drinks from your daily diet. Many feel that sports drinks, energy drinks and vitamin waters are a healthy alternative but these too are just as acidifying as colas. Even more harmful are diet and zero calorie drinks as these are full of artificial sweeteners, which do more harm than good.

A Natural and Alkalizing Alternative

Stevia is a natural alternative sweetener unlike chemical sweeteners such as aspartame. It comes from an herbal plant and is available in dried leaf, powder, or liquid form. It is significantly sweeter than sugar and is practically calorie free. The least refined powder forms are brown or green in color. White powder can also be found and is more refined. When choosing to use the liquid form make sure that it is not an alcohol based dilution but a water based extract or concentrate as these have better concentrations of nutrients. The best quality of Stevia leaves are the ones imported from Mexico and South America. Along with helping alkalize your body, several studies have proven that Stevia naturally regulates blood sugar levels.

System Recovery

Basing your diet needs according to an acid and alkaline food chart can help your system recover from a damaging acidic environment and lead to a more balance alkaline one. As you begin to alkalize your system with alkaline water, juices, and foods, you will begin to create an atmosphere that is detrimental to the growth of harmful yeasts. This is not a one-time crash course but a way of living that must be maintained. We should constantly be alkalizing our bodies to keep on drawing out the toxins and acidic wastes.

Your high alkaline food chart can help guide you to optimal health by prompting you to recover from your sugar and soft drink addiction and search for genuinely healthier alternatives. Along with Stevia choosing fruit as snack can help you combat sugar cravings. There are also a variety of fruit drink recipes you can find with alkalizing benefits. Begin your search today for these better alkaline food choices and experience all the ways your body will respond to being healthier.
