Once you substitute generic flour & sugar-filled desserts with the real deal, there is no going back! Your body will become cleaner and more sensitive to the effects of the ‘fake’ stuff, and if you were to have it again – blah! Yuk, that fake sugary aftertaste and that yucky heavy tired feeling afterward as all the toxic fats float through your blood!
Your body has become far more sensitive to the true effects, which is a good thing!
