I don't usually watch TV, but a friend invited me to watch 60 minutes with him as he's just waking up to the sugar syndrome. He was blown away by the studies' findings, and I told him that I've been telling him the same stuff for ages. (selective hearing?) A recent blood test revealed pre-diabetes range and he's drastically cut back his imbibing of soda and other demons (desserts). I think he got to the problem just in time.
I've continued to try to impart other things I've learned from SPark and elsewhere, but until he hears it from the experts, it'll probably continue to fall on deaf ears. But I'll still continue trying cause it's tough to watch loved ones in the process of making themselves sick.
As for me, I don't crave sugar anymore. It's funny, I have more trouble fighting caffeine urges even though I didn't really like it that much. Fortunately, it's only occasional urges that bug me and they are getting less frequent. I think I'll always track my progress as it makes me proud after a lifetime of struggling with them
Wishing all a good day.
