I am getting a little frustrated here...
It is my belief that every "body" is different and that each of our bodies is the result of many, many years of various experiences, thoughts and habits.
You can debate the science until the end of time (and you just might), but I think there is nothing as beautiful as listening to your own body. In fact, that's what led me to primal.
I asked a question about sugar-free bacon for my own, personal reason. I got some great answers. When it turns into seven pages of opinions (and even judgments in some cases), however, it reminds me why I've not been hanging out here so much lately.
I wanted some bacon to sprinkle into a broccoli salad. Oh, and I don't eat white sugar (or most other forms of sugar). That's my conscious choice and I enjoy the (positive) consequence of that choice.
Funny, how so many people formed an opinion of me and others over some bacon sprinkles sans sugar.
I don't know if you can do this elsewhere but I can go to the butcher shop and buy what they call "sliced pork"; something like that. It's bacon that hasn't been cured or smoked. It's usually frozen. I'm the only one in the family that likes it but it tastes more like Canadian fatty bacon.
Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?
One of my local markets filled an entire refrigerated case with products from this company, one of which was bacon without sugar. I passed by that food every week for a month and it didn't look like anyone bought any of it. Then it went into the freezer section where it sat for six months before becoming MIA. It was high priced and people didn't go for it. Several online sources exist if you don't want to make your own.
I just checked the nutritional info for Honey cured bacon. Turns out it has a whopping 0.8 grams of sugar per 400 calories of bacon. That's about 3 calories. 3 EMPTY CALORIES! I'd be more worried about the large dosing of AA and whatever other nasty things that pork can contain.
