No sugar added… Did I really just say that … I’ve done no sugar for 30 days before. But I always let it back in via honey, or organic cane, or coconut palm. But year. I must be crazy. In her recent book Year of No Sugar, Eve Schaub avoided any sweeteners containing fructose but allowed herself those that were fructose-free (so glucose and dextrose were OK). I have decided in 2016 I am going to do the opposite. The glucose in sugar is the real big problem for me in my opinion. So I have decided I am going to go low gl/gi, and no added sugar. More or less a full on #Transform365 if I may. Going to be the scariest and yet most brilliant year of my life I believe. I will also the almost insignificant amount in my Complete shake into my diet only because I know that it would be the same if broccoli and apples came with an ingredient list. It is about the fiber to sugar ratio which lowers glycemic load – rate at which sugars enter blood, and so I am not considering that to be ‘added sugar’ in my diet. Just so that I don’t have to answer that question over and over again this year.
Also I am also going to focus on going low glutamine which means sticking with the no animal fats diet, and then working out because you can usually get enough glutamine without taking a supplement because your body makes it in a healthy body that is moving every day. So if you are looking at your daily foods, stay away from animal fats, raw spinach and raw parsley (cook these instead). I know that people have a real misunderstanding of this and are actually taking more of it in my circle for leaky gut and for bodybuilding.

And if you are using bone broth to heal your gut, for the glutamine, then I would recommend you add turmeric to it before you drink it and reduce the time you are simmering. The turmeric is reported to interfere with gluconeogenesis, and glutamine content increases in bone broth with increased simmer time. From whole raw chicken to bone broth should take no more than a few short hours—as opposed to overnight or longer. Just a little FYI. The year of a really focused Paleo Vegeo nourishment and shining brilliance is on. Care to join me?
