Weight Loss Scripture Daily Devotionals For Motivation
Did you know that it is better for us to have healthy snacks between meals? The reason is we want to keep our blood sugar levels even so we don't find ourselves with an appetite that is craving too much food. Healthy snacks will also help us to have more energy throughout the day.
Here is a snack I eat almost everyday. You can buy hummus or make it yourself in a blender or food processor. Hummus is made from beans which are a high quality carbohydrate rich in fiber and is scientifically proven to stop sugar cravings. You can add fresh herbs for added robust flavor like chopped basil, chives, or celantro just to name a few.
I love the cucumber hummus bites for afternoon snacks or early evening. i generally buy up to 3 long english cucumbers a week. When I know I will be away from the house for 4 or more hours I always pack a tupperware container with 1/3 cup hummus and a dozen or more cucumber slices. This is so quick and easy to prepare. For added satisfaction include up to 12 raw almonds and you are sure to crush your cravings for sugar.
If you have been avoiding eating beans because of the gas like I use to try this:
add 1-2 tsp apple cider vinegar to 1 cup water and sweetened with 3 dashes of stevia. Drink 15 minutes before eating beans.
Forget the junk food and enjoy eating optimal food created by God, cause God doesn't make junk! I love you.
To Your Health!

The answer is YES! The real culprit that is taking down our health and destroying life is SUGAR and any form of food containing a combination of wheat, sugar, and fat. Truth is, America does not RUN on Dunkin’. We ONLY run into trouble with our health and the consequences can be fatal. When we eat sugar out blood sugar spikes and when we crash, we want more. Some people have a genetic condition related to the elevation of serotonin causing a vicious cycle of the sugar fix that is scientifically proven. Some people have to go to great lengths to stay away from these addictive foods.
I am a recovered sugar-aholic since attending my first Overeaters Anoymous meeting at age 11 in 1972. I had many thoughts of pain and struggle. It’s something you never forget. That’s why I have a deep passion to help people find their path to recovery. Here are a list of thoughts that go through an individuals mind who struggle from food addiction:
INSIDE THE MIND OF A FOOD ADDICT:
Eating until I’m stuffed or drugged to sleep.
Not able to predict when the binge will stop.
Knowing i am sick dieing scared and angry.
Craving sticky greasy food. Eating to feel better and always feeling worse.
Feeling helpless and hopeless.
Eating for comfort and believing food is my friend.
Lying to myself and others.
Hating how i look and feel.
Full of shame and hides to eat treats.
Questioning why i am so weak.
