bitter foods become sweeter, fruit tastes like heaven and all flavors taste richer and more exciting
start sleeping better, less mood swings throughout the day and I can think more clearly

Here's an idea. cut out sugar, including fruit, and use aspartame instead.

RavySnake

@Sharpcharm
Nah, when I say sugar I mean excessive/added sugar. So not eating sugar laden desserts or snacks and not eating food that has sugar added to it artificially. Fruit is full of sugar but your body still needs it to function and fruit gives you a lot of other good stuff on top of the slowly absorbed sugar hit so it's fine.

@Evil_kitten
It's exactly how it works. Refined, added sugars enter your bloodstream much quicker than sugar contained within fruit, as the fiber in the fruit slows the process, thus you get a lower insulin spike and your body is not rushing to store everything you eat as fat. I'm not suggesting the calories ingested from the sugar become inert.

@haveahappyday
so eating a muffin made of refined carbs filled with a ton of added sugar and a few blueberries is like eating nothing

This is how retarded you sound

I can eat nothing for two days and feel as normal as possible.

Depends on how much you're eating/drinking. 40 grams is the upper limit for men, and that's how much is in one soda. A lot of people don't realize how much sugar they're actually consuming. But if you have it in smaller amounts it's fine, people have been eating honey and making fruit syrups and things like that for a long time but now it's so cheap that a lot of people eat way too much of it.

Kempner rice diet, all sugars all good.

They got healthy, and stayed that way until they died of old age.

It generally takes time for these to affect you, however, everything in your body is connected so improving your diet over a period of time, sometimes even just for a few days or a week or two can make people feel better.

There are a lot of other factors involved too. Its complex.
But at any rate, you shouldn't be eating complete garbage.

Either that or you're not eating as unhealthy as you think.

Its not just "willpower".
Your body gets used to having sugar in it. You'll have to work harder, but don't just give up. Replace a few simple things. Diet is about making sustainable changes to your diet over time.
If you keep focusing on willpower, you won't get any where.
I'd say more, but I'm only like 19% body fat and wasn't that unhealthy to begin with, so I can't really give you advice if you're taking in a great deal of unhealthy calories regularly...
I don't think I can I say I fully know what that's like, but I know at least that willpower with food seems to be more about focus than anything else.
Try not to even look at unhealthy food, but you can still have it like once or twice a week once you get the rest of your caloric intake in order.

Dreamworx

By "sick" people you mean overweight people? Being overweight takes a serious toll on your health even if you're only eating healthy foods. Some guy lost weight by mainly eating Twinkies and staying under his calorie limit and his blood work improved.

Also I could at least understand more if they ate brown rice and whole fruit, but white rice and fruit juice won't keep you full and you'll probably lose muscle mass from a diet low in protein.

Sick as in "on deaths door" kidney disease I believe.

Kempner treated a bunch of people with high blood pressure, kidney disease and maybe heart diseased people as well.

It was a low protein, low salt and low fat protocol that worked remarkably well.

As people got better, meat and veggies were added to the diet, but it stil was based on it being almost entirely sugar.

I think he might have been a nazi, and I think he had to beat some people with a strap to keep them on it, but ithe diet worked.

Google Kempner diet in images...

America is
I'm getting sick of this meme.
Yes, America is very high up in obesity ratings, but the main factor really is just not being a shit-poor country and being able to drive a car.
People get fat because our society requires something different from them, not because they're murrican
Also, the United States is big.

Need_TLC

@Need_TLC
obesity
that's not the problem

Americas literally eat recycled garbage. Their taste buds are destroyed. They've forgotten how to eat real food. If it's not processed food, with box instructions no more complicated than add water, they don't eat it. Virtually nobody knows how to cook and enjoy vegetables. They get meat, but only because it's so easy to cook, and the majority of the time they eat hamburger or other processed meats blended with grain anyway.

It's all Kraft Mac&cheese, white bread, instant noodles, candy bars, "hamburger helper", pizza rolls, chinese take-out, Oreos, and fried foods. The slow turnover of Restaurant menus just make more of the same, since Americans won't order or like food they're not familiar with, and all they're familiar with is garbage. "What is a brussel sprout? Oh you mean some of the darker leaves in a SALAD?"

To 90% of America, chicken soup is that condensed Campbell's Chicken soup garbage. The Veeky Forums types who enjoy food are a rarity. The average American won't get a whole carrot from a grocery store. To the American, a carrot is a pre-cut "baby" carrot out of a plastic bag and served on a platter next to ranch dip. He sees it about once per year at Thanksgiving. When he tries to eat "healthy", he knows of carrots(and only carrots) and buys carrot strips and eats them directly from the bag while drinking Diet Coke.

The USA is truly in a dark age of eating.

America does have an obesity problem, but people like to make it sound like its nearly the whole country when in reality its only 30%. Yes thats a large number when Canada holds at 14.3%, but you still have to consider there's more to it than just this fat America meme.
The majority of Americans are still not obese, so yes, most Americans can cook and its only a 6~7% difference between America and the United Kingdom.

Oh another thing, that shit is based on BMI. So if a person has a lot of muscle, they'll also rank high on BMI so the fuck does any of this mean any way
All it proves is that we have a lot of food readily available so people tend to get bigger, so its thrown off by people who actually have muscle as well as some other factors that could even just have to do with shit like racial composition.

It's not like an acid - the moment it touches your teeth it'll start dissolving them. It is oral bacteria acting on the sugar which produces the dental plaques etc. Brush your teeth (or mouthwash to swill around your mouth) regularly and you can eat a moderate amount of sugar fine.

not eating as unhealthy
During feast week I literally eat only cake and bread. Seriously, I eat entire cakes in one sit, have 10+ brioches for breakfast or eat an entire can of dulce de leche with bread. My daily caloric intake is easily over 8k kcal in feast week.
read /fit/ sticky
Also I recommend people to read advanced human nutrition because it is very interesting, specially the topic about fiber.

I live with >40 g/day and nothing happens. I drink 5 cups of coffee a day plus 3 of tea and nothing happens.
