      Wheat and grains. I can't eat a whole lot of sweet stuff. It was sort of a mechanism to make me stop. There was no off switch with bread/pizza/pasta.

        For me it would have to be wheat. Wheat contributed to destroying my digestion for a couple years. I can eat rice with no problems. Sugar I can control and I never really had a sweet tooth. But wheat definitely takes the prize for me.

        People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

          The research coming out about wheat consumption and arteriosclerosis and heart disease is concerning... I would say wheat since it's still labeled a "health" food, where common sense tells you too much sugar is bad.

            grains...no question.

            sugar may not be the food you want to run to if you're trying to lose weight, but at least sugar comes in forms we can readily eat from the wild (fruit, honey, etc.). grains on the other hand require some sort of processing or preparation, generally contain gluten and more lectins, and you can just keep eating and eating it.

                My first reaction was "why does it matter? they're both evil" But, yes, grains are crippling in the system while sugar can be metabolized.

                  I can eat candy and feel nothing from it, but bread has a noticeable inflammatory effect on me personally. So, grains.

                      Wheat and grains are definitely worse. I know they promoted inflammation in my joints, which ceased within 6 weeks of me giving them up. Sugar is not so bad in moderation.

                        For me personally, they are equally bad, since they each act as a gateway to the other.

                          I usually don't use sugar directly, but it will be in foods when I eat out. If I do barbecue, sugar is often in the sauce so that's my 20%. Otherwise, I don't get much sugar in my diet.

                            Wheat is just bad on every level. It's just empty calories that trigger all sorts of problems. At least most people know that sugar is bad for them.
