Daily I see head lines, blog lines, suggesting low sugar, low carb, paleo ways of eating neglect carbs, that we need carbs. These are typical strawman arguments, for all these diets are about staying clear of processed faux-foods that are filled with cheap sugars like HFCS, and sticking to the healthiest carbs, those from nature: berries, vegetables, nuts.
The latest evidence of worry in the agri-biz world is that Coca-Cola is now buying scientists to try and tell us to just exercise more, and keep on drinking their totally empty calories. No reputable exercise physiologist agrees; while exercise is important for health, it does make you hungry. Further, no one need ever consume such junk!
The sugar-pushers don’t give up, and neither will we!

Back again, and only more dedicated to making sure people know that sugar is truly addictive for many, if not most, people. Further, it is a lifelong struggle.
I took a long break since we had a lot going on for several weeks with grandchildren visiting for a month, vacation, and lots of business to deal with. I found that having kids around does make a challenge for those working to stay away from sugar. I definitely had a few caves, and ultimately gained about eight pounds. The real struggle was to get the sugar-starch-artificial sweeteners cravings under control. A week off may mean a month of struggle.
More coming up about sugar addiction, and how a high fat diet may be the ultimate solution.
