— From Diet Doctor, one of my favourite low-carb websites, comes the inspiring story of My, a self-confessed sugar addict who lost 208 lbs (94 kilos) on a low-carb high-fat diet. Her story’s from 2016, but her wise words bear repeating: “Food should only be fuel for us addicts, not a treat or a consolation.”
— Fruits and vegetables were small, fibrous, and much less sweet before we domesticated them.
— Is sugar the world’s most ubiquitous drug? This great article was suggested by a reader — thanks, Diana, G.! The article also mentions a book that sounds interesting: Why diets fail (because you’re addicted to sugar) (2013). If you’ve read it, I’d be interested to hear your thoughts.
