Except for the sugar in Mini Eggs…..kidding, of course.
One of the comments of gotten since starting this (a whole 24 hours ago!) is the difficulty, and some reluctance, of giving up sugar. I came across a couple of articles today that talk about what sugar does to the immune system, and how it can lead to diabetes.
Sugar does not do good things to our bodies, especially refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup (which is in so many things where it has no business being).
The first is from Mark’s Daily Apple, a great website with lots of info and recipes.
I just bought his book Primal Blueprint and am looking forward to reading it. Sugar Suppresses Immune System
The second is from Healthy Habits. Another great website that I have spent hours reading, and I follow Doug on both Twitter and Facebook (yes, I do have a lot of time on my hands!). This article explains carbs (sugar) and insulin and the effect it has on your body. Why do I crave carbs?
