Turns out Gwynnie and Jorge Cruise are thinking on the same lines! I thought it was really important with right up front addressing sugary foods as addictive. It goes on to support this claim and mention many similarities that Jorge mentioned in our online class. The article recommends eating whole foods low in sugar and eliminating artificial sweeteners, although it does suggest using fruit to curb sweet cravings. There are several supplement recommendations, including L-Glutamine. While the article did not give any specific guidelines for how much sugar was considered "too much" I found it a great introduction to a low sugar lifestyle.
The Belly Fat Cure is the only low sugar book I've found that actually sets limits in the grams of sugar we should have. All other articles and books I've seen are very vague on the details of how much is too much. But it is very interesting to see more and more information on low sugar diets and their benefits. Just think, Low Sugar could be mainstream one day soon!
As a low sugar dieter for more than a year now, I found the article very useful. I think a newbie would really get a lot out of it too. You can check out the full article HERE and GOOP in general HERE. Her newsletter is also very useful if you plan on antiquing in Paris or are having dinner in Italian country side (she knows just the pace to go)...
