With all these silly thoughts you keep having you should probably go and lie down before you hurt yourself.” The theory that bread is fattening probably stems from the fact that it spikes your blood sugar more aggressively than Coca Cola does (Really? Yes! Check out this experiment – CLICK). […]

Righto. Sugar, particularly fructose, is not friendly to most people. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. 🙂

Sugar is metabolized 80% by the Liver only whereas starches, bread included is a far better energy transport to all the body’s organs.
This is actually proof that sugar is bottlenecked in the liver promoting fatty liver disease.

It’s possible that you can reduce some of your out-of-control urges for sweets by getting enough sleep on a regular basis. Not getting enough sleep leads to trouble with your metabolism. I don’t know what your sleep behavior is like, but it’s just a thought.

I’m glad to hear you’ve had so much success with Chris Kresser’s Personal Paleo Code program. The hardest part of dealing with any behavior you want to change is changing the thinking that’s associated with the behavior. Most smokers are unsuccessful at quitting smoking because they really don’t want to. The love the feeling of the throat hit, the gentle rush after a puff, and the temporary stress relief they experience. Trying to change a behavior without changing your thinking first, is an exercise in futility.

Thanks for sharing your experience, Dee. Stay strong and stay inspired!

Cheers!

Comment on Quitting Sugar – Extreme Edition! by Scott Milford http://quittingsugar.com/2014/04/16/quitting-sugar-extreme-edition/#comment-13098 Tue, 22 Jul 2014 23:33:22 +0000 http://quittingsugar.com/?p=504#comment-13098 Casey,

Those are great questions and observations. I only did meat and water for a month, but I kept going with the zero carbs for another 3 months. So, in total, I ate zero-carb for 4 months before starting to add carbs back in. Most days, I’m getting around 10 grams of carbs or less, except on weekends when I eat more veggies. During my meat and water experiment, I was not consuming organ meat, etc. If I were to repeat this experiment, which will likely happen in the future, I’ll do some planning and maybe get blood work done before and directly after to see a real-time snapshot of the results.

Thanks for coming by. 🙂

Cheers!

I might have that data somewhere, but I can’t find it right now. I’ll have to look the next time I’m at the grocery store. I haven’t repeated the experiment, but that’s a good idea. It’s a good experiment, but it’s not a scientific study. I still have questions. Like, if I exercised the night before, would the results be different? How would the results vary if done the morning after a full night of sleep versus not getting enough sleep? Would a healthy meal, the night before, effect the numbers? I think it’s worth repeating this experiment. Have you ever tried it?

Thanks for your comment and for stopping by.

Cheers!
