How I broke up with processed sugar

Saying goodbye to my lifetime frenemy helped me lose weight, gain more energy and sleep better

The term “frenemy” probably conjures up images of Regina George from Mean Girls or the famous Sex and the City episode that introduced the concept of a friend on the surface who is really a backstabbing rival. I know my frenemy all too well – it is processed sugar. For much of my life, I turned to sugary treats for stress relief or celebration, basking in the burst of fake happiness from the initial rush that inevitably turned into an energy crash shortly thereafter.
