I am almost a week “post” my 21 Day Sugar Detox. I am doing great and still seeing great results. ***Can I just say, there is nothing sweeter than having people “notice” I am making progress again!!! #WIN!!! But I am not quite at my goal yet! Getting closer everyday….and plan to stay there when I get there! 🙂
This week I have stuck to my “post sugar detox plan”, meaning I added a variety of fruit (mainly berries) and allowed myself some potatoes or corn every now and then (starchy veggies I am limiting greatly but not excluding). I have only had rice thin crackers once (at the Super Bowl party), so I am still very much considering myself as eliminating my sugar/starch intake. With this being said, I have decided to start using Plexus Block when I have “starchy or sugary occasions”.
I am not an advocate of diet pills or fad/diet supplements. But I do supplement where I feel and see the need (usually based on what my doctor says). However, because I struggle with self-control when it comes to my starchy/sugar carbs, I am very pleased to have this supplement to aid me in my struggle. I haven’t been using it long, but I do love it so far. I used it over vacation to help me with my portion control…..knowing I was going to eat whatever I wanted (and whatever my mom made—cos her cooking is GOOOOOD!). I am now using it post detox to not only aid in portion control but to help with my glucose levels.
Plexus Block was created to “block” starches/sugars from changing over to glucose in the body. Why is this a big deal? Because glucose is one of the leading contributors to our overall health. After reading Grain Brain, I have learned that our brains operate on glucose levels. If there is a steady blood sugar (glucose) level feeding our brains, we will experience an enhances state of mind and body wellness.
Plexus Block is said to do these things…..
-Slows conversion of glucose to fat*
-Minimizes free radical damage/oxidative stress*
-Helps reduce glycemic index of ingested foods*
-Beneficially modulates starch and table sugar digestion/absorption*
-Inhibits enzymes that convert starches to glucose*
-Promotes healthy weight control*
The main ingredient in Block is InSea2 Brown Seaweed blend. Its a type of seaweed that “delivers a dual mechanism of action against digestive enzymes. It inhibits alpha-amylase (like white kidney bean extract) and alpha-glucosidase, the enzyme that converts table sugar to glucose.” What this does is protect against blood-sugar levels that are unhealthy, unstable, and can cause mood swings and weight gain. *** SIGN ME UP PLEASE!!!!
Like I said, I only take this when I take in starchy carbs (or wine). I do feel like it helps me with portion control if I take it a half hour before these treats. And I also know that I am still losing inches and weight while using this product. It seems to be working well, so far, for me!
***So if you are coming off a Sugar Detox….or tend to struggle with these foods, as well….check this product out! I have liked it enough to tell ya about it! :-).
