Body Transformation Experiment
“Opportunities don’t happen, you create them.”
Hope you enjoyed a delicious breakfast this morning! Considering that this plan aims to keep your carbs and sugars as low as possible-- the secret to success depends on your ability to spot "hidden" sugars and carbs in your food choices. As you go through the next few weeks, you'll see foods that you'll want to try, but you may not be sure if they'll be ok, carb-wise. Of course-- whenever it's possible-- text Kristie or me! But for your own knowledge, here's some terms and ingredients you'll come across on labels that you'll want to avoid, because THEY ALL JUST MEAN "SUGAR"...
Brown sugar, Cane sugar, Beet sugar, Sugar In The Raw, Maple sugar, Date sugar
High fructose corn syrup, Rice syrup, Malt syrup, Barley syrup, Refiner's syrup, Maple syrup
Dextrose, Galactose, Polysaccharide, Disaccharide, Lactose, Ribose, Fructose, Maltose, Saccharose, Glucose, Monosaccharide, Sucrose
Agave nectar, (Evaporated) Cane juice, Molasses, Coconut nectar, Fruit juice (lots of companies will use fruit juice to make you "think it's healthy" - now YOU won't be fooled!)
Rice malt, Coconut sugar, Honey <--- another trick they LOVE
Sweet sorghum, Treacle
This should help you when you're reading labels and choosing ingredients for meals. As you can see, there are a TON of ways food companies can hide sugars in their products, and they're often very sneaky about it. It goes back to what I was telling you about the effect of sugars and carbs on people's appetites-- of course the companies are just trying to get you to eat and buy more product! Now that more people are starting to recognize that sugars are actually making them gain weight- not fats-- they need better ways to confuse us.
But we're always at least three steps ahead, bwahahahahaaaaa! :)
Scrambled eggs (about 4 eggs), bacon (high fat pieces), slice of Swiss and slice of cheddar.
Suggest: 4 oz of especially fat salami and pepperoni, about 2 oz Parmesan cheese
Suggestion: Ground beef sautéed with heavy cream, onions, broccoli, and melted cheese

What was the best thing that happened to me today? What was it that made you particularly proud, happy or grateful? Was there a moment of joy or accomplishment? Relive the feeling for an instant. We want more of those moments in our lives so let’s just think about something really positive and build on that. Too often we take good things for granted. We should enjoy them and be grateful. This question helps us to be positive, happy and appreciative.
