Wow, I can't believe the effect sugar has had on me!
I've been largely sugar-free this past year but I'm no paleo purist, I do imbibe in artificial sweeteners pretty regularly. Well, there was a sale on Pepsi products this week and I picked up what I thought was a case of diet Sierra Mist. I had 10-12 cans before realizing that it was Sierra Mist 'Naturals' which isn't diet at all, they just use real sugar vs. artificial sweeteners.
They used a white can too, it's almost like the bastards did this on purpose to confuse people!
Well, before coming to this realization, I noticed that I've had a very stiff back this week, and that some of my joints have been a bit sore too. It may be a stretch, but is this a reasonable connection to make...sugar consumption and my body stiffness?
Any info. regarding the connection between sugar consumption and joint pain is appreciated.
