There are times when I wish I had a better understanding of the science in the body so I could explain this better. But I don’t so I muddle through it as best I can. My heart went back to regular a couple of hours after I got out of the pool and was fine the rest of the day. Then, swimming today completely confirmed that my tolerance for refined sugar is next to nothing. Today’s swim was powerful and all out. I swam with the fast folks in the fast lanes, and though I had a heck of a time keeping up, when it was over I hopped out of the pool and felt like my lungs were huge.
Further, an alcoholic runs the risk of damaging the liver. So I guess my theory is I have a body that is telling me through the MS to stop consuming sugar. Now that I’ve drastically reduced it and the effects of the MS are slowing waning, my body has found a way to really let me know when I fall off the wagon……it messes with my heart.
Though I’m not a scientist, now I have to work to prove or disprove my hypothesis.
