"Vegetables are unlimited, but one can eat sweet vegetables such as carrots and beets in moderation.

It is best to eat sweets after a meal and limit yourself to one serving a day or less. Proteins and fats do not elevate your blood sugar unless they are prepared with a sweet sauce. Eat a Variety of Nutrient Groups at One Meal Each nutrient group—proteins, carbohydrates, and fats—are digested at different rates."

"Now the way standardization works with orange juice is that if a manufacturer finds that a batch of oranges is not sweet enough, they'll blend that batch with a much sweeter batch to bring it up to the "ideal" sweetness. If that same batch is too acidic, they'll blend it with a batch that's less acidic, until their testing shows it's reached just 'An herb being defined as "any of various often aromaric plants used especially in medicine or as seasoning." the right level of acidity."

"AVOID the super-sweet fruits—grapes, pineapple, very sweet apples, oranges. ?HANG ON—you may have a brief period of withdrawal and detox, when you feel very bad and are sure you NEED sugar! ?Use tea sweetened with STEVIA—you can also cook with it (plus small amounts of malt syrup or fructose). ?MINIMIZE very contractive foods like meat and salt, which will call for sweets for balance. ?REWARD yourself with luscious organic fruits and veggies, and remember, they will taste sweeter and sweeter the longer you're OFF THE SUGAR!"

"Discover, as I have, that no amount of sweet snacks or carb "treats" can hold a candle to the awesome exhilaration of exercise. It's impossible to exaggerate the mood lift, sense of well-being, and upswing in energy you get from joyfully moving. 18. LAUGH IT UP EVERY DAY. Starting today, chuckle, laugh, and lighten up often. There's no need to be morose, glum, or sullen just because you're kicking an entrenched habit. Instead, crack jokes, read comedy books, or even poke fun at yourself as I did.

"Why is that sweet so tempting and why am I consumed by it? How will eating this harm me?" 10. REMEMBER: IF YOU STRAY, YOU CAN GET STRUNG OUT. Be realistic. Prepare for challenging days when you may find yourself standing motionless in front of a candy store, bakery, or pizza place—with no support nearby. Before you succumb, run a movie in your mind of how giving in will affect you. Trust me, this kind of Sugary Soul-Searching will help you to quit salivating lickety-split. By tuning in to your feelings, you'll come to your senses and stop yourself."

"Then, while consumed by her sugar habit, Marianne admits, she had "zero sex drive." Becoming amorous was the last thing on her mind. "All I wanted to do was sit around and eat candy, not make love. I tried to keep our sex life up enough so that he wasn't miserable and insecure, but I just didn't have much interest." Soon after stopping her sugar sprees, however, Marianne discovered a surprise benefit—a big rise in libido. "My sex drive improved a lot. I also began to have more energy and fewer headaches. I just felt better all around."

"Never add it to your food, if you must satisfy your sweet tooth, use Stevia, a safe sweetener from the South American "sweet herb" plant, you can cook with it, too. Another way to control your sweet tooth is to satisfy the dietary need that makes you feel that you need something sweet. Chromium picolinate supplementation (200 meg daily) has proven effective for this by helping the body metabolize fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, it can also give you increased energy and suppress appetite."

"I started using saccharin from the pretty, pink Sweet'N Low® packets years ago when I, like many people, believed that it could help me manage my weight. Saccharin is said to be 100 times sweeter than sugar and one packet sufficed in a cup of coffee. After reading stories about cancer in rats I was soon turned off by the product. Market competition brought us another chemical, aspartame, with more pretty packets to choose from with Equal® and NutraSweet®. It wasn't long before stories about tumors related to aspartame started popping up."

"Sugar is the devil. Sugar is kiddie cocaine. Watch kids at a birthday party. The girls are crying and the boys are turning something into swords." —Marilu Henner, actress and author of Healthy Kids "How can doctors deny it? Physicians are losing credibility because parents are picking up this information on their own. Nobody knows a child as well as the parent," says Dr. Rapp, author of Is This Your Child?, Allergies and the Hyperactive Child, and Our Toxic World: A Wake-Up Call. "Sensitivity to sugar is genetic," asserts Dr."

"If you feel deprived of the taste of sweets from these guidelines, realize you are a sweet addict and have succumbed to the marketing ploys of the vested-interest trash-food monopoly. You have become a pawn in their game of profits at the expense of your health. They are controlling your brain. After a few months of following the Five Rules, you have the chance to recover from this addiction and become normal again. In the meantime, find something else to do besides eating sweets or using sugar alternatives. The problem is your abnormal sense of taste."

"The tongue has leptin receptors on it that are tuned to sweet taste. When leptin is out of balance, the desire for sweet-tasting foods can be overwhelming. This includes cravings for junk sweets and chocolate, or it may involve cravings for complex carbohydrates such as bread products (especially if they have some kind of sugar on top). Junk-food processors frequently add hidden sugars to their products, which are covered up by other flavors."

"Starchy vegetables include winter squashes, corn, potatoes, cooked carrots, sweet potatoes, yams and pumpkins. Since they are more calorically dense than the non-starchy vegetables, they are limited to one serving daily for those who need to lose weight. It is convenient to place whole grains, such as brown and wild rice, quinoa, millet, and whole wheat in this category too, but keep in mind that the colorful, high-starch vegetables such as carrots and sweet potato are higher in nutrients compared to the grains."

"When anything sweet enters our mouth, the body assumes it is sugar, and thus secretes insulin to deal with it. When no sugar follows, and the two stimulating amino acids in aspartame (phenylalanine and aspartic acid) also kick in, you are basically creating hypoglycemia, and thus a craving for carbohydrates to feed the brain, (a perfect way to create the many undesirable symptoms associated with hypoglycemia, and contribute to weight gain as well). Most people assume that, as NutraSweet?contains no calories, they can drink all they want, (and they often do). Another ingredient in NutraSweet?"

"Americans, in particular, have a huge sweet tooth. We consume over 33% of the world's sugar, which amounts to over 10 million tons annually.1 It is no wonder that America is suffering from an obesity problem. This chapter will teach you why it is important to choose natural sweeteners while avoiding the refined and artificial ones. What is the most common sweetener used? The sugar most used today, commonly available at grocery stores, is white refined sugar. The refining process of sugar involves stripping the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients from it."

"During the process of switching from one chemical sweetener to another, it occurred to me that where I was once satisfied with one pink packet of chemicals, I now needed three of the yellow packets, which was said to be twice as sweet as the other artificial sweeteners. Increased dependency was a major clue to this chemical addiction for me. As my usage increased beyond the multicolored packets and into a variety of other products promising to keep me thin, my short-term memory deteriorated. Initially, I attributed my fading memory to age. My wife implored me to use raw sugar."

"They even erected a statue to the man, Sokan Noguni (now known as Lord Sokan or the Imo King), who first brought the sweet potato to the island. The tuber is incredibly healthy, extremely high in vitamin C, fiber, and beta-carotene—an agent shown to have cancer-fighting properties. "No," she snorted. "I ate imo for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for 50 years. I got tired of it." "No one really eats it anymore," Craig said. "It largely disappeared from the diet when the American food culture took over after WWII. It's hard to make a case for it being a longevity food."

"He displayed a very sweet manner toward the jury, regularly asking them how they were holding up, if they could hear everything being said from the witness stand, if they needed bathroom breaks, and so on. He fussed over them much like a grandfather with his grandchildren. At the same time, he was hard of hearing, and tended to speak loudly, adding to the paternalistic effect. He was also visibly aggravated with the attorneys on both sides of the case, especially the defendant's attorney when he was so roughly cross-examining me."

"We ate sweet potatoes three meals a day, and maybe some fish. Once a year, during the lunar New Year, we'd slaughter the family pig and eat pork. Mostly we were hungry, though." He chuckled. "Then the war came. There was no food. We ate miso and drank rainwater. When the American troops landed here in April 1945, they ran up the beach firing machine gun—tot, tot, tot," Shigeichi mimicked machine gun fire. "Battleships shelled us from the sea. Over half of the people on the island died." "Does it feel strange to have an American in your house?"
