9 Tips for rebooting your body and kicking sugar addiction (Plus a great recipe)

8. Put out the fire (of inflammation)
Studies show that inflammation triggers blood sugar imbalances, insulin resistance, pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes. The most common source of inflammatory foods other than sugar, flour and trans fats are hidden food sensitivities. And the most common culprits are gluten and dairy. Quit these for ten days. Getting off them isn’t easy, but after just two to three days without them you’ll have renewed energy, relief from cravings and see many of your common symptoms disappear.
