Even if you are not participating in the Paleo Challenge you should still be avoiding sugar. It is the devil and is literally more addictive than crack. Don't eat it. 

What is sugar?

Wikipedia defines sugar as: an informal term for a class of edible crystalline carbohydrates, mainly sucrose, lactose, and fructose characterized by a sweet flavor.

Why no sugar?

Sugar depresses the immune system which opens the door to a host of diseases.  It does this by disrupting your insulin response which leads to a well-known condition called silent inflammation.

What is inflammation?

When a foreign object invades the body, or the body performs a heavy lift (for example), the immune system releases hormones to either fight the infection or alleviate the stress of the event.  Afterward, the body returns to its hormonally balanced state.  This is a normal process but the addition of large quantities of sugar (and carbohydrates) to a person’s diet causes this hormonal response to get out of balance.  An excess of pro-inflammation hormones create a state of hyperinsulinemia, an ongoing state of inflammation.  Inflammation is now also used to describe a type of nonspecific immune response. Hyperinsulinemia leads to a host of diseases such as heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, depression, and Alzheimers.
