Sugar’s out for me — for now

My doctor went ballistic on me today and demanded that I go on a no white foods diet at once — and I got concerned about desserts because I have always been a sugar freak and now I am not allowed to eat anything with refined white sugar in it.

So now I understand that moderate amounts of honey and maple syrup are my go-to sugar alternatives. I do not know how true that is but in my book it is better than nothing and so I am going to try it.

I am also a lover of ice cream so now I am supposed to be looking at these substitutes for my beloved ice cream:

Sorbets
Yogurt
Popcicles
Frozen bananas
Gelatin desserts

I am beginning to wonder if there is any justice left in this world at all.

If white refined sugar is that all-fired bad for people like some doctors are saying I am wondering why the government lets it be sold so freely on the markets, and if sugar is as addictive as some other people claim, I am wondering why it has not been classed as a drug available only be prescription?

Any thoughts?

  1. I don’t have sugar in drinks, and I rarely eat any sugar added to food, or sweets, chocolate, and ice cream. But there is so much sugar in almost every product I purchase. Bread, Pizza, Sauces, Packet Mixes, and so on. Then there is the way the body turns things like wine and fruit into different sugars.
    It seems the only way to escape the intrusion of sugar in our lives is to eat an incredibly bland diet.
    Life has to have some fun in it though, along with all that sensible stuff.
    Best wishes, Pete.
