If you’re like most Americans you’ve spent a lifetime training your body (and being trained) to use sugar as a primary source of fuel. The problem is not only does eating that way spike your insulin creating cravings for sweets, but it also keeps you from burning fat efficiently.

The secret is out! You have to eat fat to burn fat. In the fullness of time, the idea of a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet turned out to be a really bad idea. It all started in 1977 when the McGovern Report was issued showing a low-fat diet as preventative for heart disease. It further escalated in 1992 when the USDA Food Guide Pyramid was introduced showing “6-11 servings of bread, cereal, rice and pasta” as the basis of a healthy way of eating.

Despite the system’s downplay of the sugar issue, I’ve noticed that the “Big Sodas” have been making changes in both their recipes and container sizes. So they appear to be aware of the need to cut back on the sugars and are willing to comply. I guess they realize that the public is armed with the internet now and can find out the truth on their own!

Not that this is much different from regular wheat flour, which–from what I understand–turns to sugar faster in our bloodstream than anything else. Ah well, we do the best we can.

      • True! Good plan to tackle one aspect at a time. My hubby has just started cutting back on his sugar habit, since he thinks it may be behind the acute itchy skin on his torso that he’s sporadically & mysteriously been suffering with since 2013. Wow; if he’s right, then that would be another illustration of my 2nd point in my Three Parallels post!
