Lately, thanks to David Perlmutter, M.D., author of Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar — Your Brain’s Silent Killerswe’ve been hearing a lot about how Carbs Can Kill Your Brain.

In short, sweets and carbs can make you fuzzy-headed, confused, and scattered.

What we don’t hear about often enough is that Carbs Can Make You Cranky.

To prove my point, I’ll introduce you to the frazzled, brain-foggy, sugar-addicted Connie of 1998.

carbs make you crankyActually, I’m  answering a FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) here.

That’s because people often want to know what I was like back in 1998, when I was in the throes of my sugar and carb addiction, before I let sugar go.

Okay, maybe I didn’t literally gorge on red licorice while cowering in closets  but this embarrassing image certainly captures the flavor (pardon the pun!) of my one-time addiction. Anyhow, now that I’ve kicked sugar, I urge others to discover the power of living sugar-free.  —-Connie Bennett, “Sugar Shrew No More!” & Sweet Freedom Guide, © Copyright 2014, Sugar Shock Blog, (Feel free to share this, but kindly make sure to include the proper attribution.)
