I’m fascinated with dietary changes and as I found out over the weekend, the topic of sugar is one of the best conversation starters.
A few weeks ago I read this article about Sarah. After playing with the idea of eliminating sugar from her diet, she finally took the plunge. What surprised me was that her diet was actually pretty healthy and very similar to mine, yet in reality, it all added to a whopping 25 teaspoons of sugar a day! She usually went for honey, fruits, dark chocolate, yet she still felt like she was on a constant roller-coaster of sugar highs and lows. As soon as she stopped eating fructose, she noticed that her energy, skin and wellness improved drastically so she just kept going - 4 years later, she is healthier than ever.
The subject of a sugar free diet is close to me, since last year 3 of my friends quit fructose and it amazes me how much heather they feel. One of them quit sugar after a nutrition specialist told her that her 3pm energy slumps and a sudden waist weight gain was due to sugar.
What do you think? Could you do it?
P.S: Vegan before 6pm?
