I’ve been stepping back on the sugar and started by getting rid of the high-fructose corn syrup stuff. And you know what I’ve learned? I don’t crash when I have real sugar, only with the HFCS.
For instance: I can have pancakes with real maple syrup for breakfast, and it doesn’t make me want to crawl back in bed.
I can have a Stewart’s soda with pizza and my blood sugar doesn’t crash.
And most important, I can have ONE Pepperidge Farm Milano cookie without wanting to finish the entire package.
So I’d guess that HFCS is what drives a constant cycle of binge and crash. Interesting…
P.S.: Wawa chocolate milk is made with cane sugar. Yay, Wawa!
