Hi Kristina You’re right it’s a tough habit to break.
Carbs are sugar and most of us are addicted to sugar. Grains aren’t that healthy to begin with and modern processing, refining, bleaching, enriching, etc. them makes them super bad for you.

Hi Moriah! Thank you very much! Am I afraid? No. My decision was a calculated risk based on the dismal success rates of chemo and cancer reoccurrence, and my research on survivors who used alternative therapies. I was more afraid of the lethal consequences of taking chemo, than not! There’s a post on my site that explains this in detail called Why I Didn’t Do Chemo.
