Sugar is an artificial stimulant that, over time, damages your body’s ability to produce its own energy. (Pert, Candace, PhD. Your Body is Your Subconscious Mind (audiocassettes). CO: Sounds True, 2000.)

White sugar and white flour burn up vitamins and minerals without replacing them, lower immunity, foul up the digestive tract, and complicate diabetes, kidney stones, osteoporosis, and cause fatigue. (Editors Prevention Magazine. Complete Book of Vitamins: All New Edition. p 597. PA: Rodale Press, 1984.)

Study: After eating candy, the energy level dropped even lower within an hour and was associated with feelings of tense-tiredness. (Restak, Richard, MD. Mozart’s Brain and the Fighter Pilot. p 130-131. NY: Harmony Books, 2001.)

Eating sugar gives a quick rush of energy followed by a big drop as the body reacts to the excess sugar by driving down blood sugar and energy levels. (Fox, Arnold, MD, and Barry ox, PhD. Wake Up! You’re Alive! p 62-64. FL: Health Communications, 1988.)

The human body primarily gets its energy from metabolizing sugar (closely related to sucrose or common table sugar). It is transported to the cells in the form of glucose. Metabolism is an intelligent act. (Chopra, Deepak, MD. Ageless Body, Timeless Mind. p 124-130. NY: Harmony Books, 1993.)

Eating sugar gives a quick rush of energy followed by a big drop as the body reacts to the excess sugar by driving down blood sugar and energy levels. (Fox, Arnold, MD, and Barry Fox, PhD. Wake Up! You’re Alive! p 62-64. FL: Health Communications, 1988.)

Although the brain is only about 2% of the body’s entire weight, it can consume 20%-30% of the body’s entire energy. The brain stores so little glucose or energy that it would be all used up within 10 minutes if not replenished. The type of sugar (glucose) that circulates in your blood is critical and is largely determined by what you eat. (Carper, Jean. Your Miracle Brain. p 106-107. NY: HarperCollins Publishers, 2000.)
