Food should not make things better - remember that we eat to live, not live to eat! And if you are on a quest to lose weight, rewarding yourself with food for hitting your weight loss goals will just perpetuate the 'one step forward, 2 steps back'.
There are plenty of seemingly healthy foods that PACK in the sugar. I chose 6 of what I see the most when I meet with clients. I literally cannot imagine eating 4 or even 2 teaspoons of straight sugar, can you?
So what should your plan be? Prevention! When it comes to health - I try to support holistic approaches when possible, rather than over-the-counter temporary solutions. (Shocker.) Start with a healthy diet. There are so many natural immunity-boosting foods and drinks that can help fight off illness and keep you going with your busy life despite dropping temperatures.
