Well this has been a hectic week for me so far, and it's only Tuesday! I'm going to keep this post short by directing you to an interesting video on youtube called Sugar: The Bitter Truth. It's a little bogged down by biochemistry... which I'm going to pretend I understand slightly. Overall it gives a logical reason why sugar is so unforgiving in our body, especially over a long period of sugar addiction abuse. Definitely worth the time to take a listen, but maybe fast-forward through the chemical reaction breakdown to get the nitty-gritty info. When he is talking about sugar in the diet he is meaning added sugars such as white sugar and high fructose corn syrup, not the natural sugars found in fresh and dried, unprocessed fruits. Hope you enjoy!
Another interesting thing to take a look at is this article talking about how fatty foods could be neurologically as addicting as drugs such as cocaine:
What is your opinion of added processed sugar in the diet? Do any of the processed or convenience foods you own NOT contain some form of added sugar?
