SugarShock Blog Writes about Effects of Sugar

I'm currently out of the country traveling in Turkey and Kenya, so replies to comments may be delayed until I return home. If you'd like to see my pictures from the trip, you can do that by following me on Instagram or Twitter.

I consider Kalyn's Kitchen to be a food blog hybrid, combining my foodie obsession with all tasty and unusual foods with my commitment to lower carb, lower glycemic eating. In my own eating, both those things are equally important to me. On the blog, however, I write mostly about good food simply because even though I'm committed to lower carbs, what I am mostly interested in is creating great tasting food. It's that simple. I will not eat boring, bland, or bad tasting food just to lose weight. Food is too important to me.

I do read a lot of blogs where they talk mostly about reducing carbs, and not so much about the food. One of those is SugarShockBlog, written by a very attractive woman named Connie Bennett whose life changed dramatically when she quit eating sugar and other refined foods. SSB recently featured a guest column by Nancy Appleton Ph.D. called 146 Reasons Why Sugar is Ruining Your Health.

Every person who eats any significant amount of sugar should read this article. I know for me personally my whole life changed when I eliminated sugar and other high carb foods. I feel healthier now than I have for at least 15 years. I have tons of energy (enough to write a blog at night after teaching fourth grade all day.)

Make your own decision about eating sugar or not, but do check out the article in SugarShock Blog.

  1. Thanks, Kalyn, for the mention of my www.SugarShockBlog.com on your blog.

    I'm always happy to hear of others whose lives also have been changed by kicking sweets!

    Nancy Appleton's guest article -- to which you link -- really is an interesting one, I believe, and I'm grateful to her for letting me post it. (I need to add to her list of ways sugar can harm your health. While working on my upcoming book, SUGAR SHOCK!, I came up with additional research.)

    FYI, I just mentioned your blog on my blog.

  2. Wow, that was an eye-opener. So many things on that list I'd never heard of at all, and I thought I was fairly well-informed in this area.

    Of course, informed and doing something about it are two different things entirely, and I've been bad bad bad lately about my suger consumption. And you know what? My energy's been in the dumps and I never even made the connection! I've signed up for Connie's yahoo group, and I'm going to nag Chopper to look into more low-glycemic recipes like yours.

    Thanks tons for the link and for your attention to this topic!

I'm so happy you're taking the time to comment on Kalyn's Kitchen! I love hearing from people who stop by, especially if you're sharing feedback or asking questions about a recipe I've posted here.

I've recently changed my comment settings so people can comment without signing in, but you will need to check the box to show you're a live person, and comments on older posts won't show up until I publish them. Thanks for understanding!
