  1. I’m a believer. Gave up processed flour over a year ago. Had terrible withdrawal symptoms for several weeks, then began to feel better in a subtle way (more consistent energy, lower bodyfat percentage, etc.). Then I gave up processed sugar 4 months ago as well, which was also difficult. My bodyfat fell in to the 10% range, athletic performance went through the roof, and I easily maintain the weight I always dreamed about.

    I realized that I’ve probably had an addiction to sugar and other simple, processed carbs for years. Powerful stuff. Oh, I should mention that I did it without any “dieting” or calorie restriction whatsoever. If I’m hungry I eat (and I eat tons)- just not processed sugar, processed flour, sodas, or fast food.

  3. Yes, I for sure agree that cutting (or at least dramatically reducing refined sugar and sugar in general from what most people have is much better than what America and most other countries had at around 1900. Although it is true that our brains need a little bit of sugar to survive, that amount can all be derived from having healthy levels of fruits and vegetables. No added sugar needed. Even the sugar in a once in a while chocolate brownie is probably better than the Tropicana or other Ocean Spray brand fruit juice that most people drink every day.
