Fight Sugar Cravings With This Natural And Healthy Sugar Substitute

Primal Power Method Monk Fruit1

 

Every once in a while I find a product that I like to share with all my fans and followers. While at the Natural Food Expo West this year, I ran into a product that looked like it had some great potential to help people fight their sugar cravings and addiction. As most of you know, I discuss sugar and sugar addiction in-depth in my book: The Simple Life Guide To Optimal Health: How to Get Healthy, Lose Weight, Reverse Disease and Feel Better Than Ever

The company I found is called Lakanto. Lakanto makes a great monk fruit based sweetener that has zero calories and doesn’t negatively impact your blood sugar… sounds great to me.!

Heath Squier of Julian Bakery was also with me, and found the product as amazing as I did. Matter of fact Lakanto sweetener is included in his new low carb cookie and brownie products. I must, I couldn’t tell the difference between Julian Bakery’s low carb cookie and brownie from the sugar loaded version in grocery stores. They are incredibly tasty, but remember they are still a cookie and brownie so don’t be scarfing them down like a out of control hungry caveman. Remember my famous saying “An organic cookie is still a cookie.”

– Migraines
– Chronic fatigue syndrome
– Cancer
– Diabetes
– Alzheimer’s disease
– Parkinson’s disease

In a recent study titled: Gain Weight by “Going Diet?” Artificial Sweeteners and the Neurobiology of Sugar Cravings, published in 2010 found:
