Sugar is not “addictive”, it’s just necessary for you to survive. It’s a legitimate craving and the happy response in your brain is a legitimate response to receiving nutrition it was craving, unlike drugs that give that response artificially. You eat more sugar, you stop wanting so much after a while. I do think exercise is also critical to health, you can’t eat ding dongs all day and not move. Our bodies are meant to eat and our bodies are meant to move (except for periods of healing, as when refeeding for a while, sickness etc.). Eating sugar helps you move more!
We cook with coconut oil and eat real butter and we cook our meals for the most part. We do get a domino’s pizza once a week. :) But I do try to limit the pufa’s but a few here and there I don’t worry about. Main thing we haven’t done is start making our own mayo. I keep meaning to.
