Nine Reasons To Avoid Sugar As If Your Life Depended On It

English: Turbinado SugarI tell people I gave up sugar the day John Lennon was shot.
There’s no reason his death influenced it, it was just a coincidence.

That, along with giving up aspartamine (I’m allergic and its another excitotoxin like MSG) has probably done wonders for me.

Yes I do eat sugar; its cooked into breads and much more. You can’t absolutely avoid it without purging your diet. Then there are many
fruit sugars of differing glysimic index. I use chopped raisins as a sweetener in my cereal, for example.
