    Default Eating and Drinking Poison

    YouTube - Sugar: The Bitter Truth

    Sharing a lecture by an academic on the poisoning of the American food supply.

    The man makes a strong case as to why everything we thought we knew about diet and health is completely wrong.

    Depression? Obesity, cancer, heart disease, diabetes type 2? ADD

    The solution is simple and might be found in the content.

    Enjoy!

    Is Sugar the New Cocaine? - Wellsphere

    It's scary. But I'm not quitting my precious candy. I'M NOT! *runs off to cry*
    I'm not clever enough to have a signature.

    Enjoyed the Wellsphere article. Ever since I cut out sugar and refined grains, my energy level is up...shedding pounds without much effort. Coffee and beer consumption is way down.

    I can't say the same about myself. I cut out refined sugar and grains years ago, the weight does go down without much effort but the energy level is the same or I'd even say that it's gone down a notch or two. Even though I don't regularly consume sugar now, I don't bend over backwards to avoid it either, I simply don't feel any craving for it. When it comes to energy, I'm mostly close to lethargic either way. Even with exercise.

    The good thing is that after a few weeks of cutting down on sugar, you don't crave it at all. At least I don't. Which was not the case when I ate sugar regularly. Addiction feeds the addiction.

    I get a lot leaner and have much more energy when I take out the carbs. It does make me more aggressive too, which has it's good side and bad side.

    I try to avoid that crap. But trying to find something without it can be frustrating. Hell, it's even in products you wouldn't think have/need sweetener.
