Sugar: The arch enemy that we often overlook. All of those cravings for sweets, crisps, chocolate and even those for breads, ready meals and yoghurts they all have one thing in common, even if you don’t realise it. Yes, they all have that dreaded five letter word packed into them:
We hear things like, ‘a little bit won’t hurt’ and ‘I need an energy boost’ often from people and our clients trying to justify their addiction to sugar. But how much sugar are you actually packing into your diet? Without realising it?
Let’s put it into proportion, how often do you have?
1 can of coca cola
A few squares of chocolate
2 slices of white bread
A ready meal in the evenings
Cereal for breakfast
Often? That’s a lot of sugar isn’t it? Even foods such as cereal, salads and wraps covered in dressing and the quick and easy “healthy” ready meals (that are probably low fat) are filled with sugar.
You probably do not even realise just how high the amount of sugar is that goes into your daily meals (and we’re not even talking about the weekend!)
What are the effects of sugar?
With the exception of sugar within fruits, sugar by itself contains, no nutrients, no protein, no healthy fats and no enzymes. Basically meaning it is just empty calories that will cause problems within the body with digesting foods resulting in fat gain.
How to watch out for sugar?
Beware of the labels in foods changing the name of sugar. Sugar is a bit of an identity fraud disguising itself with many different names normally ending in ‘OSE’: “Dextrose, fructose, and glucose are all sugars! The only difference between them is how your body metabolises them / breaks them down.
So what should we beware of?
Look out for high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), agave as well as the renowned detrose, fructose and glucose.
What about sweeteners we hear you ask? Well, xylitol, glycerol, sorbitol, maltitol, mannitol, and erythritol are sweeteners however, don’t think you’ve hit gold just yet! They are also incompletely absorbed from your small intestine, so although they provide fewer calories than sugar they actually result in problems like bloating, diarrhea, and flatulence. DAMN!
We have the answer though… if you think you are one of thousands with a sugar addiction and sugar craving and if you experience problems associated with sugar such as: fat gain, headaches, acne, rashes, high blood pressure and more then it is time to do something about it.
