Connie Bennett, an anti-sugar advocate who runs the online support group sugarshockblog.com, insists candy and chocolates are not ideal gifts for Valentines Day.
Bennett says theres a segment of the population that sugar can turn into moody, irritable witches, souring even the best intentions on Valentines Day.
She says a lot of folks arent even aware sugar has this type of hold on them.
Even worse, Bennett says, some people who consistently eat sweets are more prone to a decreased libido.
In Bennetts words, Who wants to hang out with someone wiped out on Valentines Day?
According to Bennett, those whom shes surveyed on what theyd like in lieu of candy say theyd rather get poems than sweets from their sweetie.
