"The Refined White Sugar Super Lose It Diet"

Updated on December 4, 2013

That Single Can Of Coca-Cola (Find Correct Answer at End of Hub.)

How many teaspoons of sugar does just one full red can of Coca-Cola contain?

See results

When you drink a soda. . ...

Refined white sugar robs the body of nourishment; in particular the water soluble B vitamins: But a process much more sinister takes place as this sweet, white poison weaves its way throughout the body.

Ingesting refined white sugar generates a particular surprisingly intense reaction within the human brain. It responds, "I am being over stimulated!"

A savage cycle then takes place.

Hunger pangs develop and this urge is NEVER satisfied. Eating additional refined white sugar make the cravings even more robust. Consequently, the apparent fix is to ingest even more and more sweet poison "treating" the stimulation.

The problem: Until balance is restored, this cycle repeats daily, and this is when the body begins to add pounds and inches. Most Americans' weight gain solution is a continuation feeding of Tony the Tiger in futile frustrations to quell his incessant roar. They could not be more dead wrong!

The Free Breakthrough Weight Loss Lifestyle

I am about to lay out the exciting details of a totally free, breakthrough lifestyle change guaranteed to help you achieve optimal weight along with incredible loss of inches!

You must first know weight loss is a multi-billion dollar industry, so naturally, these competing companies will tell you any- and everything in efforts to steal, er, I mean gladly receive your money.

They will make you feel as though you can't lose weight without their help.


I read the weight loss sales fliers; I watch their bogus TV ads; and I hear their spew on the radio.

It's all BS!

You need only do one thing and your health will dramatically improve—just 1 thing!

Fourteen months ago I owned the following physical stats:

  • WEIGHT: 295
  • WAIST SIZE: 48
  • BLOOD PRESSURE: 156/98 (average - mostly much higher!)
  • AILMENTS: Low back, acid reflux, chronic fatigue, high blood pressure
  • OUTLOOK ON LIFE: Depressed

I took a long and hard look at my food choices, and I shortly found the culprit... refined white sugar.

This white, crystalline substance was running and ruining my life, so I TOTALLY eliminated it from my diet.

NO cokes, NO cake, NO pie, NO SWEETS.

Fourteen months later, my bodily stats are:

  • WEIGHT: 220 (a loss of 75 pounds)
  • WAIST SIZE: 36 (a loss of one FOOT!)
  • AILMENTS: Occasional back pain
  • OUTLOOK ON LIFE: Positive

(I am 6"2", and although 220 pounds may sound high, I spend a lot of time at the gym. Most of that 220 pounds is muscle, and muscle weighs more than fat. 220 pounds is my ideal weight.)

Those are eye-popping statistics that yet impress to this day: But, does cutting only one specific item from your eating plan generate similar results?

I KNOW it will!

Fructose, Sucrose, Corn Syrup

You will find these three ingredients hidden in hundreds of foods and, yes, they are all cleverly concealed sugars.

Fructose, sucrose and corn syrup are just a bit friendlier to your health than the white, toxic crystals a.k.a. refined white sugar, but all three affect the body in similar ways. If losing weight is your goal, eliminate these three items from your sugar-free lifestyle.


Some Fat Stats

America is eating more refined white sugar in 2013 than any year previous, and the obesity data reveals genuinely shocking specifics.

The smallest, factual percentage of total over weight Americans shows approximately 60% . . . The highest, and more accurate figure, is 85%. Primary cause? REFINED WHITE SUGAR!

If you reside in the typical American grouping, you shovel 32 teaspoons of refined white sugar down your pie hole EVERY day. Extrapolating this number a bit further shows you are ingesting more than 115 pounds of this sweet poison a year!

Kicking the Refined White Sugar Addiction

Habits are formed early in life, and most parents reward their children with doughnuts, cake, pie, sodas, ice cream . . . even bubble gum (the dental profession loves that one) .

Americans accept feasting on these sweet treats as normal and most parents believe serving this sweet drug is a form of showing love for their children.

The refined sugar brain trusts have sold America a gigantic bill of goods!
The fact remains: Refined white sugar is killing America's citizenry at breakneck speed.

Most medical professionals proclaim occurrences of diabetes, strokes, and heart attacks are exploding.

What they won't tell you is WHY these numbers have reached chart-busting levels.

The medical community is unable to tell you because they do not know!
Does that surprise you? Then read on.

The average Primary Care Physician (PCP) never learns preventive medicine while attending med school. Their curriculum revolves around 'how to cure'. The CAUSE for your ills is never addressed.

The sugar cycle begins at an early age, and by the time children reach age 20, this seeming harmless behavior becomes an addiction. The average consumption of sugar has risen 40% since 1952, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Eliminating refined white sugar from one's life is easy once the decision is made to quit. As one who successfully stopped this deadly behavior, I can tell you it's truly NOT difficult to
eliminate sugar.

Within a very short period of time, refined white sugar tastes sickly sweet; like being married to the wrong person, once the divorce is over, you'll never think about it again.

What's the BEST way to kick the sugar addiction?

Cold turkey! It's the only way.

The subconscious part of your brain is going to win out over the left and logical part of your grey matter every time. And once you know the REAL facts about sugar, you will be so pumped about seeing the "new you" in a month or two, you will have NO separation problems.

Remove ALL sugar-related products from your home.

That means your garbage can will be filled with:

  • Ice cream
  • Doughnuts
  • Cookies
  • Most cereals (Shredded Wheat is OK, it contains no sugar)
  • Pies
  • Cake
  • Candy bars

Get rid of these poisonous products. You don't need that strong temptation around when beginning the quitting phase. Eventually, you'll walk past these "food items" without giving them a single, lustful thought.

You must retrain your palette to first, accept eating foods you would normally season with sugar to taste bland, because it will! This is temporary.

In time, you will enjoy new tastes and, believe it or not, find enjoyment with this new way of life. Within weeks you will look, and more importantly, FEEL 100% better. Perseverance is the key to success.

Your conviction to quit eating refined white sugar MUST be strong enough to defeat the subconscious mind, and if you are absolutely serious, you will destroy a habit that is slowly, yet definitely robbing you of real health.

Saving the important for last:

Eliminate alcohol, in any way, shape or form! ALL alcohol is brewed, aged, or fermented with? You win the million dollar prize—the answer is sugar.

When we consume alcohol, we ingest tons of sugar (calories), and quite often, the act of drinking leads to getting the "munchies." We feed that lion and our weight numbers expand—just like our mid-section!

Sugar Is the Main Ingredient In The Manufacture Of Alcohol

Health is Impossible When You Are Eating Refined White Sugar

True health is impossible as long as you make sugar a daily part of your life. But there is GOOD NEWS!

Stop eating it and watch your body naturally transform itself to what and where it should become. It is a truly amazing process to behold! Within days, you will notice more energy, weight loss, and inch reduction; and as the Men's Warehouse owner says, "I guarantee it", - the slogan fits perfectly.

When you eliminate refined white sugar, your brain will seek out "something" to eat if for no other reason than to 'fuel up' for energy. Think about it: The ONLY sugarless foods you can buy at the grocery store all contain nutrition.

When you eat these foods, your body now gets what its been craving all along. The over stimulation messages disappear and your sugar cravings then automatically vanish. Whenever this process begins, expect seemingly magical weight and inch loss events.

Why? Because your body is now in balance.

"Childhood Diabetes on the Rise"

It's sad; it's true.

Refined white sugar is, in 2013, causing diabetes in today's child. American children are stricken for three main reasons:

1. Too much time sitting in front of a computer or the television

2. No exercise

3. Eating refined white sugar from the time they awake until their heads hit the pillow at night.

Makes sense, right? The sweet eating 115 pound/year figure is considered just a good average. The vast majority of people eat MUCH more!

Many parents are innocent drug pushers, supplying their kids with a steady supply of this seemingly harmless "dope" all day and half the night.

It's no surprise some children take legal drugs, like Ritalin, to help them unwind. Refined white sugar causes huge fluctuations in mood swings, and sugar intake makes most children extremely hyperactive.

So what happens?

A trip to the doctor, only to return home with a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)... give me a break! Remove that child's supply of refined white sugar, insist on daily exercise, and watch the transformation.

You Make The Decision

The REAL truth is: YOU hold the key to health and wellbeing.

YOU need not spend a plug nickel on ANY weight loss program to achieve your ideal weight. Starting right now, simply eliminate refined white sugar from your diet.

One last, very important issue: Avoid substituting the "chemical sugars" like aspartame as an alternative. ALL of these artificial sweeteners are WORSE than a steady diet of refined white sugar! Stay away from them as you would back off from a partner with bad breath!

Your good health is the most important factor in the "happiness in life equation" . . . As the saying goes: 'You don't know what you got 'til it's gone.'

When you eat refined white sugar, you're playing Russian roulette with your good health and subsequent joyful living.

Is that a wager worth risking?

      Hey, Hendrika - You would really be amazed at the change in your life's outlook if you eliminated sugar, but I know it's hard to lose the comforts wine and sugary desserts provide. I don't know if your last sentence was written in jest, or is a reflection of your true outlook on life. I truly hope it's not the latter. Please know this: It's NEVER too late for making positive changes. I wish you the best!

      Oh I know you are soooo right, but life feels pretty boring without some wine at meal times and dessert!! I once tried the cold turkey and I must tell you going cold turkey with drugs are nothing compared to the feelings with sugar. I'm old, fat and depressed and I have decided to die like that.

      rebeccamealey - I read the same book. I knew then, the information was spot on, but I continued to devour refined white sugar products (up to, and including 6-7 Cokes/day! I am now totally off this crystalline poison and feel 100% better for doing so! Thanks for your comments and the share.

      Great information. Even with all the recent publicity of the dangers of certain sugar, scores of people, my husband included, keep chugging down the cola and other drinks that have aspartame or sweeteners proven to have adverse affects.
