Sugar as a remedy

Sugar as a remedy

Has your blood sugar dropped, leaving you with no energy?

Light a sugar cube, and it will burn instantly. Light fat, and it will keep burning for a long time.

So, you need fat, not sugar.
Unless you want sugar to become a necessity rather than a pleasure.

Do we need to continue writing?

You are familiar with the principles of the LCHF diet; everything has already been written about it.

The principle is simple: less sugar, more fat.
Studies have shown that 75% of sweet lovers feel tired every day, and 56% of them lack motivation to carry out daily tasks.

Sugar irritates the nervous system, causes depression, mood swings, and decreased concentration because it has a pronounced rebound effect, meaning that after the initial pleasure and excitement comes discomfort and an energy drop.
Sugar is addictive, just like any other drug, but unfortunately, it’s a legal one. Consuming too much sugar in your diet leads to the formation of proteoglycans in the brain, reducing nerve impulses and slowing down your thinking and memory.

If you’re treating an illness and still eating sweets because you want a little bit of sweet every day, your treatment is in vain. You can’t treat any illness if you don’t eliminate sugar from your diet.
Every disease begins in the pancreas; that’s where the treatment should start.
Insulin resistance and the body’s inability to control blood sugar levels lead to disturbances in the functioning of all other hormones, reducing organ activity as a result.


So how will sweet lovers lose weight?


42% of them are depressed. Regularly consuming sweets causes depression. What does regularly mean? Every day, at least a little bit of something sweet.
A depressed person lacks motivation. This is how a vicious circle forms.

I ate sweets a few times a year until I was 20. A few times a year. I know what that feels like.
And I know what it feels like when I constantly nibble on something.
Daily consumption of sweets is unnecessary and excessive. And it undoubtedly leads to illness.
Acne on the face, frequent bladder infections, or fatigue might not seem like significant symptoms, but they lead to serious diagnoses, accompanied by reduced work capacity and decreased life motivation.


We all know that sugars are harmful, but what’s the problem in practice?

– Bad recipes – too many ingredients in one recipe.
Most people have weak digestion, a weak enzyme system, many toxins in their bodies already, and a large number of different ingredients in one recipe overload digestion, hormones, and create stress. Cortisol is released during stress. If we eat like this for long enough, cortisol will be chronically elevated, creating the foundation for hormonal imbalance. We lose energy, and our bodies seek a quick way to replenish it.
Of course, the easiest thing is to eat something sweet.
Don’t fool yourself; even if you eat healthy foods, it doesn’t mean you’re eating healthily.
“Healthy cakes,” dried fruit, and similar items are no less harmful in the long run than unhealthy ones.
*This is related to the glycemic index. The whole sugar story and the entire food story are related to the underestimated and rarely mentioned glycemic index.
So, some foods contain simple sugars, quickly activate insulin, and rapidly increase blood sugar. Similarly, such food causes a sudden drop in blood sugar, which can be observed through loss of energy, strength, concentration, and mood changes. This is food with a high glycemic index.
Food with a low glycemic index contains complex carbohydrates, and the concentration of sugar in the blood is more stable and sustained. We don’t experience sudden hunger attacks or decreased energy; we have a good mood and concentration.

– Incorrect food combinations, such as combining multiple types of proteins or combining proteins and grains.
Wrong food combinations in a meal cause the same problems as combining too many ingredients in one recipe. If we eat a salad first, then just meat, and then boiled vegetables, our bodies find it easier to digest.
A food item that contains both plant and animal proteins is difficult for the body to digest or may not be digested due to different biokinetics, and as a result, high-quality proteins are not absorbed.
In practical terms, this means that you can eat super-healthy food and pasture-raised meat, but if you cook that healthy meat with cheese, you will end up with a lot of undigested proteins, which means toxins, and the valuable proteins from the meat will be difficult to absorb. So, you’ve consumed a quality piece of meat and cheese, but you’ve received toxins.

– Having an irregular eating rhythm, with regular meals and no snacks, is the most optimal rhythm for maintaining blood sugar levels under control. Even the smallest bite of food (snacks, cherries, a piece of chocolate, a mouthful of something) triggers insulin secretion. Then, fat cells receive orders to store, and fat storage begins. What do proper meals look like? Proper meals vary from person to person, especially depending on whether you are healthy or ill.

– Discrepancy with individual constitution – some people are thin and energetic, some are sluggish and overweight, and some are muscular and aggressive. Such people are born this way. This is their constitution. Sluggish, overweight people should avoid dairy products (if they consume them, they often have sinus or asthma problems). Thin and energetic people should not eat a lot of legumes (otherwise, they have problems with stool, nerves, etc.), and muscular, aggressive individuals should not eat too much meat, eggs, or salt (otherwise, they may have problems with blood pressure, skin, eyes, etc.).

– Existing hormonal imbalances that trigger food cravings – if you have the idea that you need to eat something sweet every day, your insulin has likely been elevated for years, you may have insulin resistance, and you may have noticed symptoms like polycystic ovarian syndrome, chin acne, or thyroid problems. If you treat polycystic ovaries with hormones, you will never cure them.
You need to start by removing sugar from your diet to stabilize blood sugar, insulin, and stop food cravings. But you should be prepared for withdrawal symptoms, like any addict.

 Untreated intestines – disrupted intestinal function and inflammation in the intestines cause leaky gut syndrome. How does this happen? Add up everything mentioned above, and you’ll get a leaky gut. The biggest problem with leaky gut is that it allows toxins to pass through but often cannot absorb nutrients. So, if you want to be physically and mentally healthy, start by eliminating sugar and snacks from your diet and then actively pursue an intestinal treatment plan.

– Synthetic drugs that change the microbiome – many drugs, preservatives, additives, and toxins from undigested proteins alter the microbiome in a way that “wrong” bacteria are fed. Given that we have several kilograms of bacteria in us, their composition is significant. Since the intestines have a direct connection to the brain, the composition of the bacterial flora determines our behavior.

 The subconscious mind controls the most. The most neglected aspect in people who eat unhealthy food and consume sweets is stress. In addition to the fact that this is not paid attention to, there is little knowledge about how to diagnose and simultaneously and comprehensively solve health problems using nutrition and anti-stress methods for healing. This is especially important during transformation moments, sensitive moments when a person decides to change. Dedication and monitoring by a doctor are crucial in this transformation.

Where to start?
As we know, food is medicine.
Function promotes structure, and structure promotes function.
The more we use an organ, the more capable it becomes of performing its function.
If we cross the limit, the function ceases.
The simplest example is gym training and gaining muscle. Initially, as we use our muscles more, they grow, become stronger, more robust, vital, and we become happier. But if we overdo it, pain sets in, we lose strength, and our vitality decreases.

Taste buds on the tongue. If we constantly stimulate them with sugars, their function to recognize sugar from, for example, spinach, will diminish.

The third example concerns a hectic life that craves goals and carries stress. Stress raises cortisol levels; the adrenal glands hypertrophy. When we overdo it, they start to lose their function, leading to reduced cortisol secretion—a condition often unrecognized or incorrectly treated.

This is also a condition that causes disturbances in all other hormones. But if it’s not treated, we can’t permanently heal other hormonal imbalances.


But what precedes the cortisol secretion disorder? What comes before all health disorders?
A disorder in insulin secretion. Continuous depletion of insulin leads to insulin resistance and elevated blood sugar levels. This means we’ve crossed the line, and organ function decreases, in this case, the pancreas function diminishes.

How can we control this? Can we?
The wonderful news is that we can!

With knowledge of the LCHF diet, which means consuming less sugar and more healthy fats, we need to ensure that our LCHF diet includes foods with a low glycemic index.

Just a few examples of the glycemic index and healthy/unhealthy foods. Here are a few healthy foods that are actually unhealthy if eaten at the wrong time and in large quantities because they have a very high glycemic index:

  • Dates GI 105
  • Cooked carrots, cooked celery GI 85
  • Pumpkin GI 75
  • Cooked beets GI 65


These foods should be eaten in small quantities.

Foods with a low glycemic index, especially if they are organically grown, are desirable in daily nutrition:

  • Avocado GI 10
  • Spinach GI 15
  • Broccoli, cauliflower GI 15
  • Lemon, ginger GI 15


The lower the glycemic index, the better. The threshold is 50. Foods with a GI below 50 are okay (the lower, the better), and foods with a GI above 50 should be eaten sparingly.
Of course, if you want to be healthy and in a good mood.

Foods with a low glycemic index maintain a stable blood sugar level.

Furthermore, you need to learn to taste the sweetness of carbohydrates in every food, not just cakes.
For example, chicken is the sweetest of all meats.
Broccoli, beets, beans, corn, lentils… every vegetable contains carbohydrates.

You need to stop eating sweet foods and start eating slowly to be able to feel it.
This is the sweetness you need, the one that will give you stable and consistent energy.


Moreover, eating speed plays an important role.
If you eat at the right speed, fast food cannot harm you (of course, occasionally, not all the time) because your body will digest it.
I saw at a clinic in Austria how the Fx Mayr method brings quick results, and one of its promoted features is slow eating.

Don’t forget about alkaline foods like broccoli, parsley, lemon, garlic, spinach… which, by alkalizing body fluids, enhance the functions of all body cells.

Cultivate the healthy habit of managing your sugar rather than sugar managing you.


And finally, how can sugar be a remedy?

  1. By obtaining the sugar you need for your energy from foods with a low glycemic index.
  2. By meeting your energy needs mostly through healthy fats, not sugar (one teaspoon of sugar is enough to deplete your B-vitamin reserves!)
  3. By allowing at least a 4-hour gap between meals for your pancreas to rest and avoiding blood sugar fluctuations.
  4. By eating slowly to be able to taste the innate sweetness of food (all healthy food is sweet, and if you come across fruit that isn’t sweet, you can know it’s not healthy because it’s full of pesticides).
  5. By completely removing stress from your life (remember, stress is in your head), as stress craves sugar.


This way, sugar will be your remedy, a constant energy that will carry you through life.

I always want to emphasize that nutrition is individual, and each person’s nutrition plan, with all its characteristics, rhythm, food composition, and drinks, is different.
