If someone would have told me what wheat and sugar can do to you a long time ago I might have saved myself a lot of misery. Once I stopped eating grains and sugar and ate real actual animal fat I felt like a normal person for the first time. I actually got a little angry that I had spent so many years blaming myself for having such a weak willpower and being such a glutton, but really it wasn't my fault. It was just all the chemical reactions to wheat and sugar. So it makes me mad when people say stupid shit like "moderation" and count your calories and whole wheat is healthy, because for many of us if wheat or sugar are in the picture, there can be no moderation and willpower only lasts so long.
