Are Refined Carbs Really That Bad?

Updated: Jan 31, 2020


I experimented having refined carbs for a few days to see what difference I would experience.

And the results were astounding. I could not believe the experiences I was having.


As a child, I suffered with skin problems, migraines, allergies, my mouth full of cavities and just numerous illnesses. I was so sick that I used to miss half of my school year. I remember having excruciating abdominal and back pains that I could hardly stand. I don't remember my parents finding out what was causing all of my symptoms.

But then, I realized that’s how I used to live 24/7.

No wonder I had to go running to a medical doctor and psychiatrist for numbers of drugs! I was a mess! I cannot believe that’s how I used to live!



Ok, so here are my experiences for 6 days:


Day one


Noticeble changes in moods.

I mean not good, in a bad mood. Already? Yah. Already.


More stressed and feeling bloatedness.


Day two - three


Skin condition’s changed.

Pimples popped up and causing blemishes continued to worsen before my eyes.

My mood got worse and worse as I experienced more stress and mood swings so it seems to be a vicious cycle at this point.

Yes, I have to admit that I am quite sensitive to stress and usu
