DID YOU KNOW? Artificial sweeteners may be holding you back from losing excess weight – and could be causing you to gain weight!
Artificial sweeteners affect your food cravings and your ability to manage your body’s signals for hunger and fullness. These sweeteners are very addictive unlike natural sweeteners that leave you feeling more satisfied.
So, if you tend to use artificial sweeteners or refined sugar products like Splenda, agave, aspartame or sugar, I highly recommend replacing these with unrefined natural sweeteners like maple syrup and raw honey.
Unrefined natural sweeteners contain higher levels of beneficial nutrients, antioxidants and enzymes.

I’m officially obsessed with my morning Pumpkin Spice Latte. It’s to the point where I wonder how I survived all the other seasons without it!
I like to make my lattes rich and creamy by using canned coconut milk which has a higher fat content.
You can also add collagen powder if you’d like. It’s a simple way to boost this warm and comforting beverage with nutrients that support your bones, joints, skin, nails and gut! It also makes this latte super satisfying, so it tames a hungry belly in a healthy way.
