You are addicted to sugar
Is it hard to give up sugar? - any addiction takes a little effort to give up and you may have to try a number of times!
My blog page has the story of why I have started this website and what has influenced me in my journey to sugar free (and seed oil free).
Brief synopsis: Table Sugar is made of glucose and fructose, the body converts foods we eat into either glucose or fat. The body knows how much glucose it has in its system but cannot recognise fructose so converts any added fructose to fat. Fructose disrupts the signal from the gut to the brain to say "I've eaten enough - stop eating!", so the body runs as if it is 80% full and looks for more food. Fructose is also addictive so the body is also looking for something sweet - that extra biscuit or cake or dessert! Fruit contains fructose but with all the fibre and other content the body can cope with it as long as you eat it as whole fruit - juicing destroys the protective properties of the fibre in the fruit and gives you high concentration of fructose.
Seed Oils are polyunsaturated fats. Our body only needs less than 10% of these oils as most of our cell construction is with saturated and monounsaturated fats. The body will use polyunsaturated fats if it cannot get the other fats. Polyunsaturated fats oxidise more easily and cause cell damage which leads to cancer. Fructose feeds cancer cells.
Explore the website - I have put together links to information, reading material, recipes and more to help you get sugar free and seed oil free.
The more people who go sugar and oil free the greater the consumer base requesting products that are free of sugar and bad oils.
