Sugar Preacher's Experience
I have had at least six out of nine of the above side effects from sugar. Due to the elimination of refined sugar in my diet, I feel less irritable, I don't binge eat, I have maintained a healthy weight, and have reversed some of my cavities. A few weeks ago, I visited the dentist to get two teeth filled, however the dentist informed me these teeth no longer need work. I was taken by surprise but relieved of the $200 dentist bill. The reduction or elimination of refined sugars will reap vast benefits.
