I quit sugars, soda, candie, cookies ect... January 2010 because my bones and joints, bottom of my feet, especially my upper spine would hurt and they would feel swollen too. I noticed it would bother me more depending on how much sugar I had. To me it looked like the start of Diabetes. I had avoided it in the past because of the phyisical work I did at the airport. My Dad and 2brothers got Diabetes or found out they had it about 1999 and 2000. It was finaly catching up with me. It scaired me so I quit all the man-made sugars I could and also quit white rice and white breads and quit eating yogurt and quit drinking milk. After reading '50 Secrets of the World's Longest Living People' I learned that by chewing my food better I was able to almost got rid of myhypoglicemia. So I thought 'I can finally be a Vegitarian again'. Then after reading 'The Rave Diet" I decided since I'm already lactos intolorant, I shouldn't have dairy anyway. And learning how our bodie sees dairy and eggs just like meat because of the toxens in them, then I became a Vegan. Then after continualy reading more books on health and diet I am slowly going Raw. January I was 185lbs, I went down to 132 lbs then up a bit to now I'm about 140 lbs. I haven't felt this good in 20 yrs. Now I'm reading the book 'The Live Food Factor' and soon I'm going to get some books by Dr Douglas Graham.
