I've cut out sugar now, other than a thoughtless slip or two. I think I've cut it out before, but I was never really a stickler about it. When you're a nonnie, you eventually learn to be a stickler on almost everything, because the difference is so amazing. I don't know why or how, but my heart palpitations are now much less frequent or forceful. Now that I look back, I can see the link. They started during my first pregnancy, and my diet wasn't great, I ate plenty 'o sugar, among other things. They improved a year ago when I got serious about the nonnie diet, but came back with a vengence during and after the holidays. Then they improved a bit before my birthday, only to start keeping me up at night after so much birthday cake. Hindsight! You never know what a "food" is doing to you, before you really investigate. I knew of a long list of reasons not to eat sugar...but didn't yet know MY reason.
When I meet Dr. D'Adamo, I think I'll record him saying "I told you so" so I can replay it for myself every time I realize I should have just done what he recommended in the first place!
