Sugar High–A Real Phenomenon

Last night, after eating a sugar free dinner of bratwurst, sauteed onions and peppers, cottage cheese and corn on the cob we had desert. Lately that desert would have been something sweetish and natural. Dates, fruits, no sugar added. The desert last night was one ice cream sandwich. Grandma had went to the store with our granddaughter and bought her her choice of ice cream for after dinner. The sweetness of it was overbearing. It was ‘Birthday Cake’ flavored ice cream with a vanilla cookie, and there were colored sweetened sprinkles in the ice cream.  Right after finishing it my heart began to beat harder, I sweated a little bit.  I could actually feel the chemical of it spreading throughout me, making me uncomfortable. To think that just over a month ago I would have eaten this sweet treat and not had any significant reaction to it makes me wonder. Is it possible that when you are under the influence of sugar that your system is always in a state of reaction to it, so that you don’t notice at all when you eat it? That must be the case with me. In my case that reaction has made me not look forward to the next time that I eat an ice cream sandwich.
