Words I repeat over and over in my head as I scurry quickly past the window full of beautiful, sweet and not so-innocent-looking cupcakes. Thank god for Manduka mats they make such excellent cupcake shields. Do you think they may want that for their next ad compaign?
” Yoga teacher and Manduka ambassador Angela Kukhahn pioneered the way to better health after dicovering that covering ones eyes with the Manduka Black Mat while in the prescence of sugary delights greatly reduced ones chances of shoveling a cupcake into ones mouth while walking to yoga class.”
Manduka Mats also make great ‘sugar shields’, who knew?…simply, Brilliant!
Why sugar is bad (further evidence that Mrs Beasley and the devil may be in cahoots…as I always suspected…)
I gleaned some info from the author of this website macrobiotics.co.uk/sugar.htm
Of all the foods consumed today, refined sugar is considered to be one of the most harmful
Sugar contains no fiber, no minerals, no proteins, no fats, no enzymes,… only empty calories.
To digest sugar ‘borrows’ from your perfectly healthy cells since it is void of enzymes and nutrients leaving your body robbed of the building blocks of good health. (This is no Robin Hood think Cat Bugular…)
Likewise, the teeth are affected and they lose their components until decay occurs and hastens their loss.
Sugar is highly acidic creating a breeding ground for disease in the body
Sugar causes toxic waste to accumulate int the blood, the body and the brain speeding up cellular death.
Sugar makes the blood very thick and sticky, inhibiting much of the blood flow into the minute capillaries.
Sugar eventually causes Diabetes when the pancreas can no longer produce adequate insulin. Diabetes is what happens when the poor ‘lil ‘ol pancreas throws in the towel. I can just see a my ‘lil pancreas marching in a stomping its angry ‘lil pancreas foot saying “I have had it with you and Yogurtland! One more episode and I’m outta here!” (Not that i like Yogurtland that much or anything, I mean I am just saying…)
Sugar leaves you with that “tired” feeling when the pancreas releases too much insulin. (Wow sounds fun…Good times!..not!)
Sugar causes and upset in the minerals in the body causing gallstones.
Sugar causes a variety of mental problems. Our brains are very sensitive and react to quick chemical changes within the body. It leads to a confused mental state and has also been linked with juvenile criminal behavior.
