NEWS FLASH: Dr. G also said yesterday he is now persuaded that carbs and sugar can cause cancer to grow. The reason behind his thinking? PET scans measure glucose uptake; cancer cells take up glucose at a faster rate. Glucose is basically sugar. Therefore cancer likes sugar.
Today I started a low-carb, no sugar diet, except a daily square of dark chocolate. In our house, we call chocolate vitamin CH: gotta have your daily dose.
As it turns out, the incredible lunch I had between doctors' appointments was just about the perfect last meal of all that's bad for me. I went to Cafe Presse and had a baguette sandwich (carbs) with pate de foie gras; a salade verte with hazelnuts and delicious vinaigrette; black coffee and chocolate mousse (sugar) with freshly whipped cream. Delicieux!
Maybe I will lose some weight on this low-carb, no sugar lifestyle. Wish me luck!
