“Sweet, white and deadly” is how my father used to describe it.
I remember reading years ago, in a book called The Sugar Blues, how bad sugar is for you. But it’s one thing to know it and another to act upon it.
Then around this time last year I read the book Sweet Poison by David Gillespie and better understood the devastating impact sugar was having on my body.
Because it is basically a drug. Very addictive. Very toxic. Very deadly.
What’s really important is to understand the different types of sugar. The basic ones are glucose, galactose & fructose.
Yet when specific combinations are made using two of these we end up with maltose, lactose, and sucrose.
And it’s the excess consumption of fructose (one half of sucrose) that’s doing all the damage.
When I did go on a “no sugar” diet I managed to lose several kg which was great.
But unfortunately the results didn’t last because I got hooked again.
So I intend to make it a priority with this program to stay away from added sugar but it is only one small yet significant component.
