So, you come home after a long day at work. Kids demanding. Pressure’s on. You reach for the first quick thing that comes to hand (a chocolate bar) just to give you the energy to get food into their bellies and do the evening routine, when all you feel like doing is watching the news with a hot drink (or something stronger) in your hand.
Later on, kids in bed, housework done, you realise the level of sugar and junk food you’ve had to eat through lack of time and think “no wonder I can’t lose weight, even though I’ve been trying to lose it for ages.”
When the pressures of work, home, kids, partner (or lack of one), family get on top of you, it is no surprise that there is no time to consider a balanced diet.
And when your energy reserves are low, it’s all too easy to go for that slice of cake to give you a little jump start to help you through your day.
Yet, eating sugar at the meteoric levels many of us do these days, is seriously bad for your long term health – science is now reaching the conclusion that sugar is responsible for the most common causes of death in the western world: obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer.
Coupled with the fact that sugar is hidden all over the place to make bland foods taste better, and the fact that your body treats refined flour as sugar anyway, then you have a serious situation with sugar overloading your body.
To top it all, as Robert Lustig a famous medic who treats obese teenagers, says, sugar is arguably the most addictive food on the planet.
We can’t get enough of it.
This rate of sugar consumption just has to stop.
But how? It is so deeply integrated into our lives.
Raw Energy’s mission is to educate and support people to make improvements in lifestyle and diet that lead to better, healthier, more fulfilled lives. We help people take control of the sugar they are eating, that allows weight to fall off naturally – we literally transform lives.
Imagine having so much energy all day that you can cope with whatever life throws at you!
Imagine having a toolbox at the ready, full of techniques and ideas to make easy healthy decisions all throughout the day – at the points that really matter (when you’re tired. Stressed. Run down….)
Imagine feeling empowered to make the healthy decision every time, with ease, and look and feel better than you have in years!
This is our mission for each and every one of the people whose lives we touch. If we can improve lives one at a time, then collectively, we have a healthier planet, making healthier decisions, which are less about wars and separateness and more about inclusion and cooperation and sharing the great things the world has to offer.
