Most of you know that in addition to being a healthy recipe creator, blogger, productivity teacher (i.e. efficient expert wanna-be!), tutor, and curriculum author of over one hundred books, I am also a hope dealer—bringing happiness and health to people as a Gold Ambassador with Plexus Worldwide.
I have never spent money on my health—unless you count prescriptions for monthly cycle issues, leg and feet problems, sleep and restlessness situations, and heartburn type of symptoms. Never. I bought alfalfa a little bit to try to tone my skin as I lost weight several years ago…but I have never spent money on my health.
So I get it. I understand fully why people think supplements are just an extra expense that they don’t need to buy.
But now that I’m on the other side—investing in my health every month through Plexus products, no longer taking anything else ever, exercising four to six times a week (through T-Tapp, walking, Aqua aerobics, and ballroom dancing)—everything feels different.
I had always heard so many terrible things about sugar. You know them. Sugar spikes blood sugar and causes Type 2 Diabetes. It causes you to crave more and more unhealthy foods. It “feeds” cancer. It causes obesity. It is as addictive as this drug or that drug. And on and on.
But nothing deterred me. I just couldn’t do it. I tried the “normal” tips—switch to honey (still the blood sugar spikes and calories); eat fruit instead; just go cold turkey; eat peanut butter or apples or sugar-free candy (aspartame and sucralose!) instead; cut fat not sugar (i.e. low fat angel food cake or graham crackers or Weight Watchers cookies, etc.); drink Diet pop in place of the sugary treat; eat more protein; just cut portions; etc. etc. etc.
But I still ate like a ten year old and craved sugars and starches all the time. I couldn’t just eat two cookies. I always ended up eating six or eight. I couldn’t bypass my favorite donut shop. I couldn’t skip the candy at the gas station. Sugar was controlling me! (more…)
While the title might seem a little bit heavy on the hyperbole, as I’m sure this article will not contain every single thing that everybody wants to know about Plexus Slim, I do think you will get many answers here! Don’t be overwhelmed by the magnitude of this post. I’m nothing if not an organizer, so it is broken down neatly for you to find everything you want. (And you can always follow the hyperlinks in the “Index List” to scoot right on down where you want to go.)
