Everyone wants to know more information about dieting as there is a tremendous amount of ignorance in the world as how to properly run a diet. To get good and not great results you do not need to actually know all that much. It is common sense that sugar is indeed not good for dieting, but many people simply rationalize the decisions they make so their world makes sense on their own terms. I was once one of these people who were totally addicted to sugar and therefore blinded to the rationalizations that I made. Conquering weight loss can very often lead to other great changes in our life as... Read More
