Man Cuts Sugar For Year, Health Improves

Rick Foster recounts in the Huffington Post what happened to his health markers after cutting sugar for a year. Amongst other things, he reports:

  • Weight: 25lb reduction without dieting
  • Blood pressure: 137/88 –> 105/72
  • Triglycerides: 141–> 78
  • Glucose: 109–> 78
  • Other: Rick notes other improvements in everything from energy levels to focus to sleep.

While these are all expected results of a low carb diet, it’s a nice surprise to see such positive results solely from cutting out sugar.   Kind of makes me wonder what the rest of his diet is like.
