Notice I do not insist that you remove sugar. I am being realistic, although it would be great if you can. Sugar is deeply embedded in our own lives. It is everywhere, hidden in sudden foodstuffs like tomato sauce, mayonnaise, and sauerkraut, and it is a significant part of the rituals surrounding foods and social exchanges ( serving a luscious dessert, bringing candy to a hostess). More importantly, it is loved by us. Sugar is an addictive substance, no easier. Cutting down on it’s tough. So to bolster your resolve, consider whether the muffin in the morning’s enjoyment is worth suffering pain for. Or a bowl of granola (even”health food” cereals are full of sweetener)? Or a piece of cheesecake or glass? Quantify your enjoyment of these trees from your desire see which weighs in the scale, and to eliminate your pain.
Sugar attaching to the proteins in the fascia, triggering a chemical reaction which makes these proteins stiff and hard – the opposite of what you are trying to accomplish with the stretches. The body views the tissue as foreign and attacks it, resulting in an inflammatory reaction, if this process goes on for quite a long time.
Start looking for one of those ingredients on the label, if you can not live without some sweet.
Stevia comes from the leaves of a naturally sweet plant and is available as a liquid or powder. It far sweeter than sugar, use a bit to prevent an unpleasant aftertaste.
Inositol is a naturally sweet nutrient found in many plant foods. You can get it as a powder.
Harden your resolve, go through your cabinets and throw out everything that resembles biscuits, doughnuts, cakes, soda and juice ( even health food juices). These products have sugared content that is sky-high. If you have to have fruit, eat fruit the way nature intended it to be eaten by you. ( Never eat fruit that is frozen or packaged in cans, which usually has sugar added to it).
It is difficult to live without dessert. However, you don’t need to. I do my desert shopping finding products that use sugar substitutes that are healthy. Rather than Danish or a muffin in the morning, try a bowl of oatmeal that is with about a dozen and a few drops of stevia. Not only will you spare your body some sugar that is inflammation-promoting, but you will also receive without having a snack.
