Really made me think about how sugar controls me. In our world and society, I think it would be next to impossible to totally eliminate sugar and junk carbs. But greatly cutting down made me drop three pounds in a few days, and feel more clear-headed. The health implications of causing your blood sugar levels to wildly fluctulate, thus causing your pancreas to pump huge amounts of insulin into your bloodstream, is staggering. This author believes that the obesity and diabetes epidemic (among other diseases)in our country is caused by sugars and "simple" junk carbs (i.e. white refined flour, corn sweetners, etc.). The book is well documented. Scary.
