:unsure: About a few weeks ago I did an experiment. I am a sugar fanatic (literally) I love sugar in everything....I used to eat it like wow! so I stopped for two weeks..I saw that I didn't break out as much, I was surprised..then after the 2 weeks I started to eat the sugar again....breakouts like crazy...Now..no matter how much I love sugar...I have to LET IT GO.....I can not afford to have these pimples anymore...If I have to eat sugar..or something..It will be once in a while for now GOOD BYE SUGAR!!! no more pop, no more sugary stuff cry.gif

I went on an m and m binge a few days ago and ended up with 2 new pimples. But when I ate a whole crapload of ice cream, nothing. I really don't know what o think anymore!

Tracy, you might be right. For me, I (luckily) don't think it's sugar but some great advice I got was to cut down on sugar anyway (good for your health overall) and use a herbal supplement called Stevia. You can get it at health food stores in tablet form or powder and it's like a natural sweetener, it's very sweet, one little tablet is as sweet as one teaspoon of sugar and I use it in my tea or anything I want to sweeten rather than honey or sugar. It's extracted from a herb that is sweet and bitter apparently - so they just take out the sweet part - and some people even report that this improves their skin at the same time.

I got some news for ya',

You need sugar to live, it is energy!

What exactly are the foods you eat?

Pop and soda is a NO NO!

You DO NOT need sugar - where did you get that idea from?

Your body does need glucose to function properly however, and
sugar converts to glucose very rapidly. Which is the very problem
with sugar - since it causes such a huge glucose response it will also
cause an over-production of insulin to dispose of the glucose, which
will cause a crash 45 minutes to an hour after eating sugar, as well
as increasing the chances of gaining fat.

All foods convert to glucose in some form or another - for health purposes
people should stick to foods that cause a modest yet prolonged rise
in blood glucose.

are you talking to me evigrex? I'm confused since I totally agree with what you said.

in order to combat the sugar fall, follow sugar (best absorbed through fruit) with high fatty foods like some avocado, or extra virgin olive oil or brazil nuts. fat is a longer but less energizing fuel.

............

Having a normal blood glucose level
is always preferable to having it high. High BG has been associated
with many health problems that manifest themselves later in life.

By the way, do not combine sugar and high fat foods like that.
That will make you fat easy if you don't have fast metabolism.
