Low Carbohydrate / No Added Sugar for Better Health AND for More Stable Mood

I was overweight and often tired while taking Olanzapine.

Olanzapine is infamous for increasing risks for diabetes.

Having been off psych drugs for about 8 years I felt safe from any significant risk of being diagnosed with diabetes. During 2019 I allowed myself to eat more carbohydrate and more refined sugar. I was then shocked that a routine blood test showed I was heading towards diabetes.

Diabetes goes with excess blood sugar so I decided to cut back on high carbohydrate foods known to raise blood sugar and then eliminate all added refined sugar as well.

Most days I now have less than 100g carbohydrate and most days zero refined sugar.

Here is what I am talking about shown graphically. Basically, low carbohydrate and zero refined sugar can work very well for reversing diabetes.Changing to lower carbohydrate early in December 2019

What I am keen to know is whether almost all the benefits I have gained from low carbohydrate (defined as under 130g/day) and zero refined sugar could be gained just by cutting out the refined sugar. I say this because Dr Robert Lustig has presented evidence that seems to me to make it clear that refined sugar is the main culprit for diabetes and obesity, while my own experience is far more stable mood when having zero refined sugar.

Are you interested to see how you feel when you switched to having only foods with no added sugar?
