Do you ever wonder if your body is addicted to sugar? How would you know?
When we eat foods with a high glycemic index our blood sugar gets spiked, causing a dopamine rush in our brain - also known as a 'sugar high' or 'sugar rush'. Although this may feel good at the time, it does more damage than we may be aware of. This spike in your blood sugar causes immediate fat storage, typically in the belly.
We want to help you fix this cycle by replacing some of your daily diet habits with new ones. Did you know it takes the body 3-4 weeks to adapt to a new habit? The body typically does not respond well to 'cutting' habits out, so we would rather replace the bad habits with good ones.

Feeling weak, anxious and unconnected to my body lead me to start exercising. I joined a dance class once a week and after every dance class I had a glow about me, and it wasn't just from the sweat that I built up in class, it was something more. I realized it was the endorphins that were being produced from the physical activity I was doing. Join me and start moving and feel the difference. Read my blog to get motivation, try the exercises I've posted, contact me for personal training, bootcamps, workout cards or just go for a walk. Any activity is good activity.
