Calorie Choices

Posted in Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition

We live in America where many things are abundant.  Sometimes it is hard to say no…  Food, stuff and more stuff, eating out, staying up….  I had such a hard time with discipline when I became an adult, plus there is this thing called addiction. Sometimes we just can’t muster up self discipline to accomplish control. There is always help. No one should be ashamed to say they need it, we all need it from time to time. I had an addiction to alcohol when I was young and that created a snow ball of bad events, over and over. I am sober now 28 years and I thank God for that. Many people have this same addiction, it is hard to admit, but that is the first step. Remember your life does effect others. I took the following information from Sunshine Sharing, a publication put out by Nature’s Sunshine, a company that makes quality supplements. “Alcohol is, essentially, a pure, refined carbohydrate, which contributes to hypoglycemia (more on that next time). While a moderate amount of alcohol (such as a glass of wine with a meal) does not seem to cause any serious health problems, excessive alcohol consumption does. Over-consumption of alcohol damages the liver and brain, destroys personal relationships, and is the number one cause of traffic accidents. If you do drink alcohol, consume an extra glass of water for every alcoholic beverage you consume. Alcohol acts as a diuretic and is dehydrating, so you need extra water if you consume it. It also helps to consume it with food, which helps keep you blood sugar more stable.”
