Some of us may or may not be struggling with tiredness and clarity throughout the afternoon. Although fruit contains many nutrients and antioxidants, it also has our favorite friend, Sugar in it. Heather R. has been following paleo for many months now, but has taken fruit out of her daily diet with a positive response.
“If you think about how kids react when they get candy they are bouncing off the walls for a few hours then they crash, then you give them a cookie and they are crazy again then they crash. It’s kinda like that with natural sugar- you eat a banana (or multiple bananas) and you’re on this “sugar high” for a few hours and then you crash, and maybe you have a paleo treat and then you’re up again and a few hours later you crash (and by crash I mean your emotions or energy level)- but if you take the sugar out- you’re at one level all the time!”
