I've started cutting out sugar today. My parameters are--no foods with sugar in the first three ingredients, not white pasta, white rice, or white bread products, no foods with high fructose corn syrup at all. I'm keeping grain or starch servings to one serving per meal (if that), but other than that not getting to crazy about portions other than only eating until satisfied. I am still eating fruit and drinking milk. Any thoughts or advice? I'm hoping this will improve my general health and more specifically help with weight control and joint inflammation.
