Can I have raisins or other dried fruit?

One of the Bright Lines is no sugar of any kind. Dried fruit, such as dried figs, raisins, dates, prunes, and dried cranberries, to name a few, are concentrated fructose (sugar). When we eat them, that sweetness goes right from our tongues to our brains and sets us up for cravings. Also, as we digest them, because they are concentrated sugar, the body produces insulin, which blocks leptin (the hunger hormone), and our bodies think we are still hungry, even though we just ate a meal.

Module 1, Video #7 explains this beautifully!
