Feeling the need to up my total caloric intake for today (from a measly 400 cals including lunch), I just sucked down a 16oz high-calorie-sugar smoothie that consisted of 7 Medjuls, 8oz. coconut water and 3 bananas. (@ 700 cals?) It tasted so unearthly-good that I naturally feel that I must be doing something horribly bad for my body, since this goes against everything that I have learned about nutrition in the past 20 years. That said, I invite anyone to share their thoughts regarding the sugar from dates, and espcially this kind of sugar loading with "datorade" because I am so heavily programed to think that I am kicking the crap out of my pancreas.
