So, whilst I wait for more bloods to come back I've been revisiitng all the info on where some believe this all starts.
A history of poor sugar metabolism. You know the hype, consumption of sugar leads to spikes in insulin, leads to overworked adrenals, leads to exhausted thyroid (not to mention depleting oestrogen as we age thrown in for good measure).
So, I want to try one week without any form of sugar at all and see if there are any particular changes. That will mean no cows milk (or sweetened alternatives), fruit (unless berries), sucrose of any type etc. No biscuits, sweets, cakes, pastries, honey or otherwise so on and so forth. (Even those cans of beans with sugar or ketchup!)
I'd really like to run this alongside someone else who felt brave enough to give it a go. Can't start immediately as there are too many nice things still in my cupboard!
But would anyone like to give this a try alongside me at the same time?
Disclaimer: Please don't consider this if you have any blood sugar problems at present, or feel that this may cause you any distress whatsoever, or if you are feeling very low already as I understand that this can cause some feelings of low mood and irritability if you are used to sugar in your diet!
However, if you would like to try this as an experiment with me then please do get in touch.
P.S. If there are no takers then I'll report in on how snakey I'm feeling as it goes along! Plus, any revelations too! Plus, no worries if you get 24hrs into it and the temptation becomes too great - I'm making no promises myself!
