I gave up sugar (refined and white) and i gave up all type of refined foods including refined white flour as well. I saw improvements to some extent from both initiatives. Also, i saw improvement by reducing carbohydrate foods. I had to do that because sugar and refined foods made me dizzy.
When i started taking medication i didn’t see any problem with a moderate amount of sugar and with more carbohydrate. I didn’t see problems with those foods when i was a smoker (for 19 years) and before being a smoker.
After complaining to my doctor all of my psychological and physical symptoms, he diagnosed me with add and anxiety. He said that ADD from which i have been suffering from my childhood is the core of my all symptoms.
• I don’t know whether these links of refined foods and carbs with symptoms are direct or indirect.
** Abruptly giving up sugar may have some withdrawal symptoms.
