Yes I totally share your problem. And I'm annoyed to see that "pure" packaged meat includes sugar together with a few "E's".
Some research claim that sugar (carbohydrates) signals the body to store fat.
Which you can see in nature, when the brown bear eats a ton of berries in fall and gains a fat storage for the winter.
And fat which have been so bad for the last 60 years. From my experience; If you eat enough fat, the body will react as if its in no shortage and therefor, in my case, I lost weight, even if I ate more than usual.
Which again is a contradiction to the theory that if you eat 2000 calories a day, you need to burn all of that or you gain weight. The body is not a car...
There's a lot of research on all these fields, and a lot of argues of what is right and not. But from what I see, they fail to take into account that we humans actually have different blood types and how we react to different foods is different. But somehow I've never seen much of this research out in public media.
Personally I turn to dark chocolate and kiwis. If I let my self taste milk chocolate, there's no stopping.
The only way to avoid sugar is to buy everything raw. Even spices should be seperate, if you buy a spice mix, there will be sugar in it...
I'd like to hear more opinions on this!
