Beyond the likelihood of flour to contain gluten, genetically modified grains, pesticides, and unpronounceable ingredients, it promotes blood sugar instability that looks a lot like irritability and anxiety.

  • Researchers from Boston Children’s Hospital found (in a double-blind, randomized way) that those who ate a meal high in refined carbohydrates had depressed blood sugar, increased hunger, and stimulated addiction-related brain regions 4 hours later.
  • For a powerful change to your mood, anxiety, sleep, and metabolism, and to stop craving carbs, eliminate all sugar-added and grain flour-containing foods (rice, corn, wheat, etc) for 2-6 weeks. You’ll feel different in one!
