listen to doctor mercola.
stay away from sugar and corn syrup.
it's hard. even more so if you are a kid. EVERYTHING has corn syrup. even the labelled "natural" products.
also, agave and even honey - especially if you have cancer - are equally bad. glucose makes cancer tumors increase when injected into cancerous mice. this includes honey.
if you (like me) are absolute sugar addict and the cravings set in, try a little fresh fruit first.
whatever you do, don't have it straight up. in my case, one jelly bean can lead to the entire easter basket and a bad headache.
