I went off all refined sugar for about a month in the summer. I did not go off of fruit or grains. I was light headed for about 2 weeks from the detox! Scary that sugar does that to you. I eat it now in moderation. I don't believe in doing something extreme over long periods. It's not sustainable and it's not really living in my opinion. But i don't eat it like I did before the sugar fast. Life is too short not to eat a chocolate chip cookie or bake gingerbread men at Christmas. But I am very careful about all the way sugar gets into my diet now.

I'm glad i had a doctor who knows about this stuff coaching me through it because the light headed feeling for that long was scary.

What I know about sugar my body tells me - if anything aches it makes sugar makes it worse. I notice a big change after about 72 hrs. of not eating any. That's my hurdle - to keep my sugar consumption very minimal. For me it is "eating clean". Working so far! I'm doing ok on a 13 week 13 lbs. challenge.

I was just reading a book about the food industry and he said that they are required to list actual sugar at the top of the ingredients if it is in the food in a high amount, but other forms of sugar can be put at the bottom no matter how much is in there. So food companies will use alternative forms in addition to sugar to make it look like there's less sugar than there really is because most people don't know all these other names for the derivatives.

Sugar is sugar, to a point, but many of these chemical laden sugars are far worse for you than regular sugar. Calorie wise, yes sugar is sugar, but in terms of changes to your DNA, cancer cauasing properties and endocrine disruptors, all these chemical sugars and franken-food sugars are far more damaging to your body.

Sugar is sugar is sugar

No matter what type of sugar it is the body recognizes them all the same.

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

The author of this list is Jeremy Goodwin, who is a Houston, Texas chef keeping a Facebook page under the name of "Single Man's Kitchen". Jeremy cooks simple food from local, natural, sustainable sources. Here's his mind-boggling list of the "undercover" names for SUGAR:
