Re-Think Your Drink Educational Table
The average American drinks one sugar sweetened beverage each day…that equals 40 pounds of sugar a year! Whether you are trying to lose weight, tone your muscles, strengthen, or rehabilitate from an injury, sugar gets in the way! Sugar and processed foods cause inflammation, disrupt hormone balance and damages your metabolism. A high intake of sugar prompts a spike in blood sugar along with triggering an increased amount of the stress hormone cortisol. This impedes the body’s healing and repair ability whether for rehabilitation or getting fit and strong.
