In all fairness, so am I, although it's better than it used to be. At one point the needle of the scale was flirting dangerously close to the 300LB line. That's too much man to stay among the living for long. It's been almost 5 years and over 70lbs since those amazing heights.
So, how did I get so fat? I'm a sugar addict. Hardcore. I'd make donuts disappear faster than Steve Tyler could snort lines. And once that first insulin spike hits you better just get out of the freakin' way, the binge is on and it's not going to end well for anyone who tries to stop it.
So, it's a daily battle to keep the sugar to a minimum and replace it with healthy foods. It's not that I don't understand the nutrition - I know more than 98% of the population about the intricacies of nutritional biochemistry. But that's the thing about addictions, they don't behave rationally.
So it's no surprise when I see just how much sugar we eat as a nation. Feast your roving eyes on this sweet data, and see if it doesn't help you control the urges just a little bit.
