Today I just wanted to share a few tidbits and funny things that I thought you’d enjoy. ;)

Here’s an interesting fact that really drives home how eating high carb and low fat is the opposite of what we want to do.

“According to a study published in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, young Sumo wrestlers eat on average 1003 grams of carbohydrates per day, but only fifty grams of fat.” - Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt in Low Carb, High Fat Food Revolution

Wowza! That’s a lot of carbs and very little fat! I definitely don’t want to look like a sumo wrestler!

…Sugar is essentially an addictive drug. Studies show that sugar activates the body’s endocannabinoid system — the same system that strong painkillers and heroin use. It’s no wonder that a sudden loss of the sugar “drug” causes you to have intense cravings. - Rami Abrams in Keto Diet for Dummies

Did you know sugar triggers the same receptors in your brain that heroin does? I sure didn’t! People don’t realize how addictive sugar is but that should make it clear how addictive it is!

And now for a couple of laughs. ;)

Happy Monday! :P
