Awww...thanks Sheila.

I have been doing research, and I believe the reason these high sugar, high carb foods are bothering us is because they are sending our blood sugar through the roof! I know it makes me tired, irritable, and my belly aches. Also, most of the time, they constipate me too.

Anyway, the medical reason is called insulin resistance. It basically means that whenever you eat high sugar, and/or high carb foods, your body has to secrete an abnormally large amount of insulin to bring your blood sugar back to normal range. THEN, it overshoots and secretes so much that when you come back down from your adrenalin/insulin surge, you are left tired, irritable, and craving sweets like crazy because you have lots of insulin still running through you and your blood sugar has rebounded and dropped below normal range...so you need something sweet to counteract that. THAT'S why you crave sugar so much about an hour or two after lunch(at least I do!). Then, you do it all over again, and it's a viscious cycle!

I tell ya, I feel MUCH better since I gave up sugar and flour! I also gave up white potatoes. I eat them VERY rarely, and in VERY small quantities AFTER a low carb meal. I feel better than I have in a LONG time!! I will NEVER go back to eating a high carb/high sugar diet again!! I didn't even realize the harm I was doing to my body. I felt AWEFUL!! Crampy, gassy, exhausted, irritable, fat, bloated, constipated. What a miserable existance.

That may be WAY too much info, but I really find the human body extremely fascinating!! Must be the nurse in me.
