Who never sugar could be a "poison?"
Thursday, April 24, 2014
Came from the Dr. today to get the latest kidney and liver labs. I told her I felt I was very careful in my eating but sweets were a downfall, even when I made sure not to go over my daily calorie allotment. She told me sugar was "almost a poison" to some people and that my liver was NOT handling sugars, carbs, fats, or processed foods. I have to be on the most stringent eating plan I've ever been on...absolutely no fats, no sugars including limiting fruit to two servings only a day, nothing processed, nothing white. I can have loads of vegetables but no potatoes, and "clean protein" which she ok'd my soy protein powder in the mornings for my breakfast. I had NO idea, and I was a nurse for 25 years! Today beloved and I bought a book from Costco, "Grain Brain" all about wheat, carbs, and sugar--your brain's silent killers. Eye opening!!!
