The Life s Sugar by Fiona K (Paperback) - Lulu

If we look at the latter, two bad boys which seem to pop up more than most are ‘ Sugar ‘ and ‘ Fat ‘.

People who opt for ‘Low Fat’ or ‘Low Sugar’ produce are usually not doing so because they prefer the taste (and even if they find out they do, that wasn’t the reason they started with).

So I love to experiment , that and setting myself lots of challenges (with most of the former including an element of the latter). So, when I read Tim Ferriss’ 4 Hour Body book about the ‘slow carb’ diet (I also love to read), despite having zero interest in diets prior to that point, I looked down at the middle-aged spread that I’d been starting to cultivate and felt that it would be a good thing to try out.

'I have often wondered how English people can go out into the West Indies and act in such a beastly manner. But when they go to the West Indies they forget God and all feelings of shame, I think, since they can see and do such things. They tie up people like hogs – moor them up like cattle, and they lick them, so as hogs, or cattle, or horses never were flogged.'

The plantation economies of the Americas were built almost exclusively on slave labour. Crops such as tobacco in Virginia, rice and indigo in the Carolinas, cotton in the southern states and sugar and mahogany in the Caribbean and Brazil helped build economies that enabled the plantation owners to become very rich.

Africans were responsible for this wealth, not least in the knowledge they brought with them from west Africa. Their knowledge made it possible for instance to grow more rice per acre in North America.

And it is TOTALLY a weird person thing to say and do, and I know you’re thinking the same thing right now, since you know me for my love of chocolate chip cookies and brownies and chocolate chip cookies and brownies together in one dessert. Which I still love. Like, hi. This is a monumentally bizarre situation.

A few months ago, a nice person named Jacqueline emailed me and asked if I had any interest in joining her course called Go Sugar Free . I said NO WAY NEVER EVER (in my mind). Then I said THIS COULD BE INTERESTING (to Bjork). Then I said SURE I’D LIKE TO CHECK IT OUT BECAUSE I’M INTERESTED IN SEEING HOW YOU RUN THE COURSE (to Jacqueline). I specifically told Jacqueline at that time: We are not really into this whole sugar free thing. That’s just not us. We won’t be participating, but I’ll just follow along in order to do some “market research.”

And so then the lessons started, delivered to my inbox every day in the form of a nice, concise, and extremely information-packed email. It was such a wealth of information that even after just three or four days I was crazy curious about this whole sugar free lifestyle. I would come home from work and just talk Bjork’s ear off through an entire Office episode about Jacqueline-this-and-sugar-that and isn’t this all so interesting?! One day, my curiosity reached a tipping point slash I became a new, open-minded person and I told Bjork I was going to participate with the course and commit to living sugar free for 60 days. He said: Okay, I’ll do it too.
