    I have a reductionist take on it: I eat monosaccharides glucose and fructose, basically. In moderation.

    what about xylitol? Sounds artificial, but it's not.

    Thanks for reading. I don't use xylitol because it is processed and because now that my family is super clean with food, xylitol causes us stomach distress, which was new information for us!

    Interesting post! Pretty much my conclusion too, except for the sweeteners. None is definitely best, but what about maple syrup, coconut/palm sugar, and dried fruit? The only thing I've used recently is dried plums, dates, and apricots, because though I'm using them as sweeteners, they're still technically whole foods.

    I wasn't quite sure how to rank the others against honey, because though honey is more whole, it does have a lot of fructose. Do you know how the others measure up?

    Hey Alyssa. I don't use any of those other sweeteners, except dried fruits. I agree, those are the best, but sometimes they just aren't right for what I am trying to do...at least I don't think they are. Guess you have inspired me to play around with them!

Dr. Price's research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health generation after generation only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.
