So i have know about paleo for a few years now and always try to stick close to that type of diet but i have also been eating a lot of sugar and processed carbs. I wouldn't say more than the average American, actually probably less. But recently for the past month I have only been eating, lets say the amount of sugar in half a cookie a day. I have also been pretty strick on not eating grains too. But when i do have cheat meals or any time that i have lets say a full cookie i get a really bad soar throat. Then if i continue to eat refined sugar i get a runny nose and lots of mucus built up, just like a common cold. It usually last till the end of the day and by the next morning the sickness has mostly gone away. So i was wondering whats going on because i have no clue what it could be. I used to eat sugar all the time and had no problem but when i lay off sugar then have a little bit my body gets sick!?! Why???
No announcement yet.
Effect of sugar?
