My Diet Update:

I had another good day.  I think I am getting the hang of this diet.  I am having good results and feeling better.  I will be looking forward to the weigh-in this week.  


  1. Hi Betty - Over consumption of processed and refined sugar is killing us, as well as prematurely aging us. Great informative post!

  2. I have been slowly eliminating sugar from my youngest daughters diet.... I know the awful effects..:-/

    1. Yes, I know! My 18 year old gave up sugar about 5 months ago. He feels so much better. My grandsons are constantly wanting sugar. My daughter is a pediatrician so she limits it. All their friends are eating sweets so they want them too!

  3. Sugar IS like crack. My kids are proof positive of that with the way they behave after eating something sugary. They're off the wall.

    1. I watched one video where they let a young child have all the sugar cubes he wanted and watched his personality change with the consumption of the cubes. It was amazing. I didn't realize it could happen so quickly!

  4. That was a great video. Thanks for sharing it. I plan to use it in my teaching.

    1. I am glad you enjoyed it and find it useful. I have been watching lots of videos lately to help me make my lifestyle changes. I feel like the more information I have the better choices I will make.

Thanks!!! Betty
