Sugar Eating Competition Results

Share on Facebook0Tweet about this on Twitter0Share on Google+0

Here it is folks!  The official day has arrived (although you are welcome to compete on Saturday or Sunday if you are unable to compete today for some reason).  Please record the number of grams of sugar you consume in no more than a 60-minute period in the comments section below.  With that, include your estimated body weight in kilograms (Pounds to kg calculator). And finally, divide the number of grams of sugar by your weight in kilograms to calculate your sugar consumption in Lustigs…

Example:  600 grams sugar/60kg = 10 Lustigs

The winner will be declared on Monday.  May the best man and woman NOT win.  It would actually be cooler if the man and woman with the most visible abs won, to help settle some fructophobia.

3 Titles will be given.  1 for Male with the most Lustigs, 1 for Female with the most Lustigs, and one for most total grams of sugar consumed.  More about the competition in the video below, including some top sugar-smacking tips, and in the LAST POST.

  1. My kids thought the bleeping was super funny and made the video way interesting. Now they want to eat the BLEEP out of some BLEEP. Nice.

    I’m pretty sure I can’t give anyone a decent run on sugar eating as recently I start to feel so full and almost nauseous after eating just a little (relatively) of anything. But I bet these boys sitting around me could take some BLEEP downtown.

  2. What’s the point of this? Honestly, what good are you actually doing?

    • The point is to make a mockery of this anti-fructose bullshit. Mostly. And to have fun. What’s the point of your comment? What good are you actually doing?

      • Mostly to spit in Lustig’s face. I hope he sees how many people here are consuming 300+ grams of sugar thanks to his interview.

      • Hey Matt I’m wayyyy off topic but i need your advice. I dropped all vegetable oils, white sugar and flower and gluten out of my diet, I just use potatoes, rice and fruit for carbs, coconut oil with the carbs except for fruit and eat lots of eggs, sea salt and little meat.. Ive lost 10 lbs in 4 days and I was about 12% body fat with a decent amount of muscle, I don’t know what my bf % is now but I couldn’t see my abs before and now there VERY visible. But i feel like my body might be in a stressful state, my heart rate is high and my body gets cold very fast when I go outside,( 40 degrees or so ) I love it because my skin is clearing up, and my body fat is wayyy down but am worried i might be damaging my metabolism, by the way I’m 20, male, five foot eight and now weigh 146 lbs and haven’t been cutting calories, I did the math and am averaging 2300 cals plus per day. Whats ur take, why would my body react so adversely to all these carbs proteins and good fats by killing my fat stores? and raising my anxiety levels.

        • It all sounds good, but you just need to eat more. You might need to throw in some more hyperpalatable food into the mix. Whatever sounds tasty. But someone of your age, height, and weight needs to be at least at 3500 calories per day.

          Reply
          • 3500 wow I was wayyy off, Thank you so much for the advice, your the best!
            P.S I regularly participate in crossfit challenges and love sporting my custom paleo slayer t-shirt. After I Grape everyone I sit down with my 1.5 gallon bowl of rice, and watch them suffer through the rest of their workout while I stuff my face full of delicious carbohydrates. If you give me the ok I will have a 180degreehealth t-shirt made and wear that instead. Have a good day Matt!

        • Sounds about like what my diet is mate. No dairy, no gluten, and also no corn as much as I can manage. I eat mainly rice, potatoes and as many root vegetables as I can like sweet potatoes, beets.

          All that weight you lost? In four days? WATER mate. Your body flushed out because food intolerances were causing you to be inflamed and thus retain water. That’s my best guess. Stick with it and just eat starch all day. The Polynesians would literally snack on poi ALL DAY. It kept their weight up nicely as they are a very fit people (modern processed foods really did a number on them though, as they do on all of us).

          Reply
          • Hey thanks for the information, I did not know inflammation caused water retention.

    • Hey Ian- Can I have your phone number? I want to make sure I invite you to my next party. You sound like a blast!!

  3. I have triumphed once again in my own primal way. I was able to create a paleo style deer gut and fish bone drip system that simultaneously put pure sucrose into my veins and my anal area for a warp speed delivery to my strong muscle laden torso. This, combined with my leaned out physique, enabled me to achieve maximum absorption, maxing out at 149.9 gms of pure sugar.
    I declare myself not only the Champion of Frutose Friday, but the true leader of the free world.
    Now if you will excuse me, I feel the need to do several body weight exercise, some hill sprints and perhaps, an enema of pure ocean water. After all, we all know that what I did to my body is sure to induce INSIDIOUS weight gain.

  5. I can’t participate but figured I’d share what I would eat in this case…and I could…

    1. A whole box of Honey Smacks (hands down the more sugar laden cereal in existance)
    2. At least a quart of Snickers ice cream
    3. Nutter Butters… ’nuff said
    4. Many, many, many raisins (to hell with the post-raisin intestinal discomfort!)
    5. Dozens – yes, dozenS – of cookies (with milk of course).

    Looking forward to the winners!!!

  6. Ok, so how about 6.08 Lustigs. This morning I had 3/4 of a box of soft black iranian fresh dates, and two-three cups of OJ. I worked it out to be around 347g of carbs, and my bodyweight is about 57kg.
    A measly attempt? Probably! Felt just right without getting to the puke stage!! I felt pumped all day and will probs dig into a new date box tonight.

    Reply
    • Hey, that’s a formidable first score. It probably will be beaten, but it is respectable. Nobody’s gonna call you a sugar-phobe with that kind of score. I’m thinking anything over 5 Lustigs is impressive. And yes, part of the point of this is to have people experience how freakin’ juiced (pun intended) they will feel from the sugar hit. Some will feel pretty gnarly right after, but the day after should feel pretty loaded with energetic goodness.

        • Yea deb, I’m not tapping out yet, I’ve eaten 2 kg bag of peanuts (sucked really bad) I imagine raisins would be doable even though I kinda like peanuts and raisins look like dried boogers to me. 1 kg would give me 600 grams. I wonder if I don’t chew the raisins if it would allow me to dodge the eating “wall” for a longer amount of time. I was half temped to see how much pepsi I can rock but I think that wold be epic fail in the 300 to 500 range tops. I have one really stupid but full proof idea but I’ll wait till its time to reveal. now if I could figure out a way to hump, chop wood and push a car out of ditch at the same time right before the sugar power hour I would definitely build a serious need for sugar.

  11. I’ve just gobbled a large banana and washed that down with about 3 1/2 teaspoons of my boyfriend’s man juice. 23 grams of sugar in the banana + an estimated 700mg fructose in the juice = 23.7 grams for me. I weigh 48 kg so I make that 23.7/48 = 0.49 Lustigs.

  12. Why is it that 200 years ago a very low percentage of the western population developed type 2 diabetes, but nowadays it is common?

    Reply
    • The answer to that question is hundreds of items long. And no one knows exactly why. There is only speculation.

      Reply
      • That question can be asked for every single disease known on earth, but even just 100 years ago disease rates were lower on a percentage basis.

        A few things that come to mind…

        Pesticides, chemical fertilizers, soil nutrient depletion, estrogenic chemicals in food packaging, processed food chemicals, mercury amalgams, mercury in HFCS, mercury in vaccines, nuclear radiation exposure, antibiotics, air/water/soil pollution, water fluoridation, “EMF smog” and the list could go on for a while.

          • clever screen name deserves a half o’ lustig for the aim in the right direction.
            While all of the issues mentioned by Cameron do factor in, these issues touch nearly 99% of the population yet 99 % of the population is not affected by these problems/diseases. Contrarily speaking 99% of the population is not doing a job they hate or living a pointless life.
            I know tons of hfcs guzzling, antibiotic dropping, fluoride infested people who are by all accounts disease free and typically lean. Speculation or not, life itself has changed more than our food has in the last 100 years, even more so in the last 15 years, and the disease/obesity rates correlate nicely. It’s not more HFCS consumption fuelling a nation of increasingly obese people, it’s a nation of increasingly obese people consuming more HFCS because it’s readily and cheaply available to meet the demands of a fatter population. If HFCS did not exist it would be whatever the cheapest possible carb source available everyone would be statistically blaming. If they were right I certainly would not be able to lose weight eating like a champ while downing more pepsi than the national average. Don’t get me wrong I’m no more pro sugar than anti sugar it’s just no one single item is to blame.

          • “I know tons of hfcs guzzling, antibiotic dropping, fluoride infested people who are by all accounts disease free and typically lean.”

            Just curious: Are any of those people over 42?

            That seems to be about the age where the heavy costs of industrialized civilization, bad nutrition and all the other mental, emotional, spiritual and physical factors start to really show up in a person.

          • Many that are even in their 60’s Cameron. I’ve been studying this a long long time. I once believed it was 100 percent diet. I’ve heard the ” youth can get away with it” argument before. Alot of that difference comes down 42 year olds tend to sit around doing nothing and 24 year olds are out and about. 24 year olds are full of life while Many 42 year olds are stuck with a 9 to 5’s, kids, responsabilty, a lifestyle focused on where the economy is heading, terrorist scares, and other pointless stuff like heavy brand marketing to consume junk they don’t need.

          • Yes! This is why Chief Roks.

            I too’ve been studying it for a long, long, long time. And my findings have been the same.

          • I definitely agree that activity levels and lifestyle, including the internal and external stressors are really important, and often overlooked factors. Getting good nutrients into the body is important, but is only one part of the equation.

            Your description of hfcs guzzling, junk eating people that thrive reminds me of a local wood cutter I know. He climbs and falls trees all day, guzzles mountain dew, eats whatever is around and is going strong well into his 40s.

            Congrats on your beastly score in the contest, too!

          • As one of the >42 set that you are referencing, I have to say that hormones are playing a HUGE part in my health issues. Its been staring me in the face for 15 years but i never snapped. I think that we haven’t even scratched the surface regarding the impact of Xeon estrogens in our diets. There’s plenty of slothful under 42ers that have the same issues-it’s not age. So there.

          • No age-oriented offense was intended, Melissa. :-) It’s just that people seem to display more ill-health symptoms as they get over 40.

            Xeno-estrogens and general hormonal imbalances are definitely a huge factor to address. Less physical activity seems to speed up the rate of decline, as you pointed out, and plenty of 30-somethings are in bad shape, too.

            I would wager that chief’s hfcs guzzling friends are quite physically active.

        • When Weston A Price first began documenting the ‘western’ diseases in tribal cultures, was there anything more than refined sugar and flour?

          Reply
          • Yes, jimba besides white flour and sugar there was this pesky thing called civilization. :)

          • As I am coming to understand it, basically anything that causes inflammation and a stress response in the body. All of the above but sometimes even more powerful are our own thoughts to create this reaction in the body. I am enjoying probably the best metabolic rate I have ever had in my life but am under some pretty stressful conditions at work and have gained around 20lbs over the past few months no matter what I eat or don’t eat (I am eating lots of yummy food now to help my body the best way I can through this time). Our moods and our thoughts are perhaps the greatest factor involved in our health…

        • Don’t forget the advent of antibiotics, hormonal birth control which upped the value of babies by reducing their numbers, so that now children with poor immune systems are preserved through medical intervention instead of dying, and thusly they make it out of childhood but perhaps are not really hardy enough (purely in terms of health, not character.) to be as robust as they might have been otherwise. What has happened is we have intervened to a point where Darwinism is skewed. Those with weak immune systems are propped up and survive. Women are discouraged from having lots of babies and so they really can’t afford to let one (I don’t mean to imply that anyone was really ‘letting’ one die in the past, I mean that in the past we didn’t have as many effective medical interventions at our disposal.) die.

          The truth is that neither myself, nor my brother, nor my mother should have survived. Our mothers would have all died in child birth. We probably would have died as a result. All of us were emergency c-sections. We have value as people, but in terms of genetics, maybe not.

  13. This morning I hit merely two Lustigs (about 1 and 1/2 cups of marshmallows and four chocolate covered salt caramels, approx 130 grams of sugar, 64 kg weight). But in my defense, I didn’t know about the contest til now. It was just a regular binge.

  15. Okay okay, I did it. I have completed my hour of sugar hell. The dates + grape juice approach seemed easy enough, but the person on youtube who warned me that my stomach would be very unhappy when those dried dates expanded was totally right! Anyone thinking of trying this approach… ABORT! ABORT! ABORRRTTTT!!!

    Okay, so I shot for 578g of s%gar and came up 100g short. So that’s 478/95 = 5.03 Lustigs.

    5 Lustigs in an hour is more impressive than it sounds. My stomach is the size of a freakin’ watermelon 3 1/2 hours after eating it. I regularly sit down and eat 2,500 calories like it’s nothing. But this? The date/juice combo.? Brutal.

  16. I was not planning on competing, but last night I decided to have a snack and inadvertently ended up with 3L.

    3 cups Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream
    1 pint OJ
    1 pint warm, flat root beer
    1 cookie
    2 cups salty duck fat popcorn

    ~250g/81kg = 3.08L

  20. My temp was a little low this morning, so I decided to give the contest a shot. It was much harder than I expected. I ended up downing 550 grams of sugar / 95 kilos = 5.78 lustigs.

    Sources were blackstrap molasses & organic sugar dissolved in warm milk. Also included was some maple syrup and PANCAKES to have something dry that needed to be washed down with the maple syrup and syrup-like milk. I measured everything carefully so I’m pretty confident in the numbers, and I included the small amounts of sugar in the milk and pancake mix into my calculations.

    Never in my life have I consumed so much sugar in one hour. I probably won’t try it again, either! I hope to earn a couple of style points since I incorporated pancakes, a non-sugar item into my meal plan. There were moments where only the dryness of a pancake would allow me to dip into the syrup or drink more of the insanely sweet milk/sugar/molasses concoction I made up. The molasses was somewhat for flavor, but mainly for minerals, because I wanted this to be a nutritious meal :-)

    Reply
    • Damn. Serious style points there. Crushed me into oblivion that’s for sure. That’s unofficially worth an extra Lustig for sure.

      Reply
      • Wellllll, I only barely edged you out, but I’ll happily take the at unofficial lustig for pancake style.

        Honestly, without the pancakes I don’t think I could have done it. The sugar milk started to get really hard to drink after about 6 ounces, but once the pancakes started coming, I got a lot more of it down. I had hoped for more maple syrup than just the 1/4 cup that I ate, but it wasn’t gonna happen today.

        I felt kind of queasy for the first 90 – 120 minutes or so after I gave up, but now I feel pretty good. I’m even messing around with some yard work and feeling plenty of sugar-fueled energy…in fact, I better get back out there.

  22. Just finished a little over an hour ago and i am jacked right now!

    I went with kool aid for the drink, 1 cup of sugar to 24oz of water. Started with a Caramel and sea salt Talenti Gelato for my proteins, after that i had three bananas and finished with 6 slices of dried pineapple. I was going to go a more candyish route but i tried a bag of licorice and a bag of jellybeans the day before and that made me pretty sick so i decided for a more whole foods approach and i gotta say im feeling pretty good. I think im going to start doing this once a week after a seriously heavy weightlifting session and try to improve my Lustigs.

    Finished at 503g of sugar, weighed in at 118 so came out to 5.13 lustigs.

Fasting alternately has shown to increase lifespans just as good as starvation even when calories are higher than baseline. If it was cut and dry like that competitive eaters would be dying Left and right, younger than child soldiers do.

  23. With sugar and flour in the diet what is everyone doing to improve their health? It doesn’t seem like anything improves my health.

    Reply
    • My personal goal these past couple months has been to eat and do anything that reduces my overall stress levels. Example, lately I’ve been eating a lot of cereal. I got tired of cereal the other day and decided consuming high fat, especially salty beef is what I wanted. The next day? Back to cereal and I felt even better. A social example would be that there is a friend of mine that I’ve known since High School. He is a good guy who did a lot of good for me when I was younger, however, these days we are increasingly unagreeable people. I do my best to respect his lifestyle choices but this isn’t enough for him. If I’m not joining him in his hourly pot smoking when I visit then he gets irritated. Instead of fretting about it, I merely accept that we have different goals in life and decrease my frequency of going out of my way contacting him. Is this a good thing? Not a clue, but I feel more relaxed and am more enjoyable to be around than I have in 4 years. I would think that is what we each should be aiming for in the long term. My only personal rule is “no” stimulants such as coffee, chocolate, drugs, etc… which honestly isn’t a boundry I feel should be set the more I reflect upon it. If my body decides a cup of tea is what it needs, what makes that any less of a legit dietary choice, caffeine be damned? However, there’s that whole slippery slope thing. “Well, marijuana is OK, why not cocaine?”, so this is definitely something with many layers to expose.

      Also, Matt, I know you are trying to keep things “accessible”, but I feel you are dumbing down a tad too much. Not that I don’t understand your urge to simplify, I do that every bit as much as you. I’d rather see you as the NPR rather than the NBC of health blogs, you know?.

The less people think about what they are eating, and the more in tune they become with what their body is directing them to do the better. I’m having a difficult time even engaging on that level, as I don’t even really think that way anymore. I feel it’s more of a trap and have been working on a post called “Internet Health Disease.”

        • Almost any thinking about health is a trap. I don’t see how you get around it. Almost everybody thinks “oh I shouldn’t eat too many cookies” or “we all need to eat more real foods”. These are all slippery slope type of arguments that lead to the dietary prisons we’ve all been in.

          • I have had trouble getting around it. I’m reading more about exercise lately, my next trap, haha. Or, my 2nd visit to that trap I should say. It’s true though. Mental interference is more of a liability than an asset in many situations.

  24. I ate 12 oz. of raisins, 15 peeps, 16 oz. of orange juice, and 6 ferrero rocher chocolates which comes out to 526.5 grams of sugar/78 kg = 6.75 Lustigs. My hands and feet were so warm it was almost painful. It took me several hours to recover.

    I won’t have the time to participate today, matt but I would like to do it at some point next week ! I would be able to smash it, no doubt !!

    I think I would eat jam. I’m sure I could eat more than a 1kg of the stuff, easy.

    You should invite durian rider for this and forward it to Furious Pete too ! I’m sure Furious could reach 20 luztigs !!

        • working on my results as we speak, got to remove the damn raisins that i tapped out on from the total. should post up within the hour and I should have time to get the video up by tomorrow. I gotta go look at labels and what not. I didn’t check and I was rushed to get my sugar in because I had an important supper to attend and it required alot of time to get ready and I needed to chop some wood. still managed to eat 2 plates of veggies and moose meat steaks about ten minutes after my sugar challenge. felt quite buzzed 30 mins into it. I set my goal pretty high and I don’t recommend shooting higher than 800 grams for the non trained/non 80 10 10/non orange juice juggin’ vegan types. this type of thing is pretty rough to jump into on the fly. Considering I’m coming off of the relatively high fat fried chicken n’ pizza type up until last night I think I did good I’m pretty sure if I prepared for a few weeks I could double the my final amount without getting grossed out and potentially quadruple it if given more than an hour.

  33. Drink a little pomegranate juice. 27g

    Cylinder of frozen pineapple juice thawed just until soft enough to stir. Pour in some heavy whipping cream and stir, eat the top part and add more whipping cream and stir etc.. Makes a creamy texture, very good, sort of like sherbet. Eat that very quickly. 156g

    Next I Try frozen apple juice, but when it melts it forms crunchy ice. Add whipping cream to the slush. Sort of like a slurpee. Eat that less quickly. 156g.

    Thirsty, Drink a little milk. Milk sugars contain no f***tose so I wont count it.

    Ready for a break.

    Had plans to eat maple syrup mixed with milk, but just looking at the bottle makes me queasy. Typing “syrup” makes me queasy.

    Break will last a little longer.

    Finish with 12 thin mints with a mouthful of milk each. 58g.

    Total: 397g / 70.3kg = 5.647L

    Nausea and unpleasantness for several hours.. Increased breathing and temperature.
    Also, sugar causes osmotic pressure. Will not be doing this again.

    1 gallon OJ — 336g (being an ex-vegan comes in handy!)
    1 box Girl Scout thin mints — 70g
    1.5 pint Americone Dream — 150g (was aiming for 2, couldn’t manage in the 1 hour)
    Total: ~800g
    At 93kg we have: 800/93 = 8.6L

    • Lawd have mercy! This could be the winning scorecard right there. Ex-veganism is huge. Playing around with a high fruit diet is what made this competition seem like no big deal to me. Others seem to think this is crazy. But damn. There’s a cult out there a lot bigger than 180D that eats like this for every meal.

        The ex-vegan underworld is the same except the vampires count the calories in the tomato more carefully because they ate an egg earlier in the day.

  39. Emergency call here.
    Matt, I have been reading off and on and very interesting stuff and have been chewing on the info for several months and have now found myself in a crisis situation 3 states removed from home with my brother and a very rare cancer diagnosis, skin cancer of the bladder, looking at a major surgery in a few days, weight dropping, insulin dependent diabetic, blood glucose so high last night that the meter said “high” meaning over 500. My brain too tired to think, dealing with someone who only does what the doc says, have heard that at temp far below 98.6 is normal so much and we are surprised you are not running a fever with your white blood count so high (23,000 upon release from the hospital to go home wait for path report).

    Matt, finances right now and energy for me trying to anything I can do to make him comfortable and being away from home and work and trying to raise my own body temps to heal, I need help with this. Any advise, not confusing, what foods to put together that keep blood glucose from spiking, are you in Jackson, MS this week I pray?!?!

    God bless everyone on this site and the many more to come. I am praying for knowledge and understanding and I need it quickly. I see a man that Friday weighed 118 at the doctor’s office not adding any weight and maybe dropping and scared and I am the little sister, becoming the mother fast and want the best for him.

    Will watch for comments as often as I am able to access the internet which is not very much these days.

    • At 118, the first thing to respond to is probably going to be the urine. I’m sure he’s urinating every 10 minutes, at least at various points during the day. If you can find the right blend of sugar/salt/fluid/fat to give him that keeps color in his urine, and give him food at very frequent intervals, it’s a start. I think you want to start simple, see a little progress and the weight loss reverse itself, and then try to build on that.

    • Hi CaregiverSister,

      I would check out gerson.org as they have a great track record of healing cancer with a natural diet. The diet consists of flooding the body with easily digestible and assimilable minerals in the form of juices and veggie soups ect. This way the body gets high amounts of nutrients, but doesn’t have to use all its energy in breaking down hard to digest foods since the body is in such a weak state at that point. If you check out their website they give you an outline of the diet. There would be an investment in the juicer you would need to buy, but they give you an alternative to the Norwalk they recommend for the program. You could buy a champion juicer and use it as your grinder and then buy a separate hydraulic juice press. this would run you a little over $500.00 as appose to the $2500 you would pay for a Norwalk. You could also contact Promise Outreach and see if they may be able to help you. They use the RBTI approach in healing through individualized body chemistry. They are wonderful and are also amazing at healing all kinds of illness. Again, there are so many options in natural healing that WORKS! It’s just up to your brother now how he’s willing to attack it! I’m praying for you both and wish you two the best in your journeys back to health.

      God Bless,

      Jennifer

      • Dear Jennifer,
        I left a reply to your comment the other day and I just realized there was a reply button where the posts are so if you feel like it, it is very near the bottom.

        Thank you so much. I feel so helpless in the natural. I cannot get my brother to try anything that the doctor does not approve and I cannot even get them to call back most of the time so my hands are tied. I have been to both web sites that you you suggested. I will continue to research. Taheebo Tea, which I had brought from home and just the other day researched and found specifically the type of “C” that he has and where it works and according to a dear lady in Canada there are 5 documented cases of it curing cancer and I cannot even get him to drink a taste. I have learned that it is what someone puts their faith in and “I” cannot change it. I am waiting to see him reach out and grab hold of the healing that is there for him and not by the hand of man. I am praying that you have reclaimed your health too!

  41. Hey Matt

    So my 30th day of RRARFing coincided with the sugar eating competition..unfortunately I was not watching & missed it. I was wondering if you’ve considered dextrose & corn syrup. I had “given up” fructose before coming across your site, but didn’t want to give up all sweetness. Ironically (in the face of HFCS) pure corn syrup is supposedly 100% glucose as is dextrose (made again from corn).

    Anyway, I think might win a competition of who came into this deal the most metabolically dead. Anyone beat 94.3?

    After years of extreme dieting, distance running (including a marathon), and just before finding your site I had finished day 60 of p90x doubles except on reduced calories while breastfeeding all to the result of having gained weight including an inch in my waist. My starting temps were in the 94’s (after my longest run of sleep being 4 hrs at a time thanks to said baby) but I am only now in the upper 95’s (perhaps bc I can now sleep longer my body is further at rest?).

    So I am jealous of these temps in the 99’s. Are these under-arm temperatures?
    Is there a way to uber-RRARF? I’ve been plowing through ice cream. I’d like to get my temps up before I gain 50 lbs. I’ve dropped protein from breakfast and try to have juice right away to get things going. Do you think dextrose might be helpful?

    THANKS!
    Trying to warm up,

    Reply
    • I’ve found that juice is counter-productive for me first thing in the morning. Too much water, I guess. The two things that warm me up fastest in the morning are Pop-tarts and jelly beans. I know these aren’t “healthy” foods, but they sure get me going, and fast. If I drink more than 2-3 ounces of ANY liquid (including fruits, which are mostly water) in the morning, I have to work (eat) extra hard all day to catch up, and never really get as warm and energetic as I do if I skip breakfast drinks. Then I use the rest of the day, especially the late afternoon to early evening to get in my fluids and vitamin/mineral rich fruits and vegetables.

      • try salted OJ first thing in the morning if you are craving juice. That probably means you are dehydrated and the salt will just let you hold on to that water and sugar. should help warm you up

  43. Exactly the same as Danyelle too, except I eat black licorice first thing and then some dry breakfast food and no liquids. I had a sugar crash yesterday and it took me until afternoon today to recover my toasty body temperature. No wonder my breakfast as a kid was boxed cereal, milk and loaded with mega amounts of brown sugar. I am so over feeling guilty about eating so much sugar.

  44. Matt, Jennifer,
    Thanks so much for responding to me. I thought my post had not been entered and have been at doctors appointments and not had time to get back online. Yesterday’s weight was down by 2 pounds. He has a catheter but I do not have a refractometer and they put him on a new antibiotic yesterday that gives wrong urine glucose readings. I am caught in between a rock and a hard place.

    Jennifer, are the lovely lady from Texas that I followed your blogs and I think found Matt through you? I miss you and have prayed for you too and would love to meet you some day. Thank you for the prayers and we need a miracle and quick. Would love to talk to you.

    • Hi Becke,

      Sorry Becke…just saw your post tonight. I’m not the Jennifer from Texas with the blog. I’m the Jennifer from little New Hampshire.:-) I probably should get a blog, but mine would only be good for those who have insomnia. One read of it and they would be out like a light! :-)

      I know what you mean about needing a miracle. This may sound crazy, but check out ibethel.org and click on the tab at the top that reads ministries. Under it you will see a link for healing room ministries. Bethel church is located in Redding, California where it seems to be where frequent miracles of healing take place. They are a healing church. They are not of any one denomination so people of all faiths and religions go there for healing. Anyhow, you can ask them to pray for your brother through Skype or at least contact them to see if they can help you. I apologize if I’ve offended you or anyone else here with my talk of faith…I just know I’ve been through a very difficult time these past 5 years where I had nowhere to turn but on my knees. I hope your family finds healing soon.

      Praying for you and your family,
      Jennifer

        I just today saw your post. Hope you see this! Absolutely you did not offend me! We are believing for a miracle for my brother and he is improving and surprising doctors and friends. From his diagnosis and the fact that his body is feeding off itself and nothing there to feed from and he has had no nutrition in two weeks today and on narcotics and chemicals and is getting better, it has to be supernatural!

        I will check out the info you wrote me.

  48. Hello! I’m new to this site, and everything RRARF-related, so forgive my naivete. I live in the Shetland Isles, a very remote part of Scotland, and the shops here simply don’t cater for weirdos who don’t eat ‘normal food’. So it’s been utter hell trying to be on restrictive diets for the past 7 years, and they haven’t even bloody worked! I’m still just Skeletor with hair and a mood problem. So this diet, if it works for me, is going to be a godsend. Just giving you an idea of how important this is to me. lol. Now, before I start the RRARF, there’s something I’m confused about. I read the free ebook, and I’m kinda lost about this ‘sugar competition’ and the ‘fructose being ok’ thing that I have found on your site. I thought we weren’t supposed to eat sugar on this diet? And it says in the ebook that fructose is bad too. If you could just clear this up for me, I’d be most grateful Matt (or anyone who knows the answer and can save Matt some work by answering for him). Cheers!

      Sugar is ok, but I would concentrate on fruit, real juice, molasses, honey as your source, least refined the better. But plain old white stuff once in awhile won’t hurt if you are eating nutrient/calorie dense foods.
