|But, it really hurts me to see you use the term "nazi" to describe a parent who doesn't want her child to eat some certain food. For one thing, it's not a good practice to use "nazi" about people who aren't actually nazis!|
|I did mean refined sugar-free. Sucrose that is, processed, white, granulated...etc. The stuff that's in junkfood, desserts, etc. Well, I guess even cane sugar, honey, etc. Basically sucrose - that gets metabolized by your body too quickly, that causes addiction, that makes your blood sugar levels roller coaster...|

Really??!! That surprises me. It sure doesn't *feel* like I metabolize the Krispy Kreme glazed and the bunch of organic green seedless grapes the same! I feel much much better after the grapes than after the donut, but perhaps that is psychological or a conditioned response?
|ut here's the rub: sugar is sugar is sugar, at least in terms of how our bodies process it. So, at least in terms of how we metabolize it, it really doesn't much matter whether we're eating a doughnut or eating a grape.|
