Do "sugarphobes" also avoid drinking any alcohol?

all ethanol is created by the fermentation of glucose, sucrose, and/or fructose.

the resulting ethanol is nothing if not highly refined and processed sugar.

that makes it bad and off-limits to sugarphobic people, right?

i wonder how many people who insist that table sugar is "teh debil" are intellectually consistent enough to be teetotallers as well.

    Ah ha...that's why booze is sooooo goooood....

    Also, I'm not going to be surprised if sugarphobes do in fact avoid alcohol...they probably have lots of phobes and unhealthy relationships with all kinds of foods and whatnots....

    I think the sugarphobes intentionally avoid consuming anything they may enjoy, because they have convinced themselves that things that actually taste good are automatically bad.

    Some of the crazier ones have managed to convince themselves that these things that taste good actually taste bad. It's a fascinating psychosis.

    Maker's mark, sugar water, lemon juice. I just blew your mind. I will accept tales of drunken shenanigans as payment.

    This one does... I don't drink...

    And I tend to avoid all forms of refined sugar, using 100% fresh from the local bee farm honey and 100% maple syrup if sweetener is needed.

    Natural foods are sweet enough. No sugar is needed. *said as I fall face first into an apple.... mmmmmmm

    I wonder if people who avoid eating pure sodium and pure chlorine also avoid eating sodium chloride.

    There's a difference between fructose and sucrose.

    paleolithic man didn't have developed language skills, so even if one of them figured this out, there's no way he could have told the others.

    I don't hate kittens... or puppies.

    Ignorant people who don't realize that most "paleo people" follow the paleo diet mostly for medicinal reasons, I do though... stop lumping all of us "paleo people" into one category of religious fanatics... some of us eat this way out of necessity. Thanks.
