11 Weird Things Sugar Does to Your Body

11 Weird Things Sugar Does to Your Body | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Sugar might help you get through those hill sprints, but in excess, this sweet carb wreaks a bunch of not-so-great stuff throughout your body.

Via Institute for Responsible Nutrition
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that excessive sugar consumption causes a cascade of metabolic injury to your body? Most people are now ingesting about 20 or more teaspoons/day or 150 pounds of sugar/year. This is insane.

 

Your body wasn't designed to handle the insulin spike that happens very quickly when you eat highly refined processed food stuff loaded with hidden sugars, high fructose corn syrup, and/or artificial sweeteners. Back in the Paleolithic days, your human ancestors ate starches aka complex carbs in the form of tubers, roots, fruits, and veggies.

 

Mother Nature is smart as she developed taste buds to detect the presence of starch. Starch was very important as it was a fuel supply. It released glucose into the bloodstream slowly. And here's the catch. The taste buds detecting the sweet taste of starch covered two-thirds of the tongue.

 

For the hunter-gatherers detecting sweet starch was critical for fuel and it also helped them with food safety. Poisonous plants are never sweet. But you and millions of other people live in a different age where sucrose (table sugar) is digested by enzymes in saliva and raise glucose levels in a few seconds. And the supply is unlimited.

 

Being on a sugar roller coaster not only ages you, but causes chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, obesity, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease. Sugar affects all your organs, including your brain. You may experience mood swings, brain fog, poor memory, fatigue, anxiety,  headaches, and depression.

 

Health tips: Isn't it time to switch from sickness to zestful-living? Try plant based real whole food and eliminate or greatly reduce your intake of sugar and all its derivatives. Learn to make your own food and avoid highly processed non food stuff. 

 

Grow your own sprouts, eat more dark leafy greens, add some algae, sea veggies to the mix. Eat ripe fruit if you're healthy and eat more veggies, legumes, nuts, seeds, and some whole grains. The more of these types of food you consume, the more your taste buds will crave these plant foods.

The Sugar Cancer Connection Doctors Aren't Telling You | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
What is the harm of sugar addiction? Get the truth about the sugar cancer connection and why it contributes to diabetes, obesity, and declining health.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that no matter what you call it,  sugar and all its derivates, including hybrid fruit (unripe) when over consumed can be deadly to your health?  Sugar feeds and causes cancer.

 

Many of you  use agave from the plant thinking this is a better alternative. Think again. Agave is 50-55% fruit sugar, but the way it's eaten today it becomes 90% fructose. There is no raw agave, And no matter the name, fructose is still fructose. It goes straight to your liver and stresses your pancreas, heart, and liver.

 

Here's some interesting facts for you. Table sugar is called sucrose. White sugar is 50% both sucrose and glucose. Brown sugar is the same. Maple syrup is 60% sucrose. Xylitol is essentially the same. It comes from white birch trees. Honey is 30% sucrose and 40% fructose. Date sugar is similiar. Coconut sugar is 70% sucrose and 30% glucose. this information comes from Dr Brian Clement, Nutritionist,  Hippocrates Health Institute.

 

Health tips:  A little of any so called healthy sugar goes a long way. If you are healthy with no chronic diseases, no candida, then eating whole fruit is best. Use liquid organic, non-GMO Stevia in teeny amounts for your beverages, desserts.

 

Are you aware that when you eat potatoes, pasta, and bread, you're eating sugar?  Same with grains. Soak and sprout your grains like quinoa, buckwheat, millet. You can even sprout your greens and drink the juice.

Why You Should Avoid Splenda

Why You Should Avoid Splenda | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Recent research has caused some of the scientific community to officially turn their backs on Splenda. It was recommended that consumers avoid sucralose altogether.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that artificial sweeteners are just as harmful as sugar and hidden chemically laden sugars in processed food?  In case you're thinking, "a little is OK". Think again, there is no moderation when it comes to consumption of these addictive ingredients. Sugar feed cancers, end of story.

 

When has anything artificial ever been good for your body?  It's best to stick to the tried and true real whole plant based fruit and spices like cinnamon and carob.

 

Health tips:  If you're a fan of Stevia, use it for your beverages. Otherwise you can use whole, dried fruit or fruit paste in all your recipes. There's also coconut sugar, lucuma, grade B maple syrup, and blackstrap molasses. If you prefer a plant based sweetener not listed here, go ahead use it. Just remember with all these plant sweeteners, a little goes a long way.

Do Artificial Sweeteners Affect Blood Sugar and Insulin?

Do Artificial Sweeteners Affect Blood Sugar and Insulin? | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it

DArtificial sweeteners are synthetic chemicals that stimulate the sweet taste receptors on the tongue. They are often called low-calorie or non-nutritive

Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that when you avoid buying processed food, you can completely eradicate consumption of artificial sweeteners and other sugar derivatives? the reason is two-fold. Sugar and its derivatives feed and cause cancer and other chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Artificial sweeteners and other sugar derivatives are prevalent in almost every highly refined processed food.

 

Are you aware that Aspartame is associated with an increased risk of depression? A number of studies have shown a correlation between artificial sweetener use and weight gain.

 

Health tips: Drink filtered water throughout your day. Add lemon/lime slices or frozen cut up fruit, or herbs. Use dried fruits like raisins, and dates, figs or whole fruit for snacks or in your treats. A little grade B maple syrup, coconut sugar. blackstrap molasses works also.

8 Deceiving Names for High Fructose Corn Syrup

8 Deceiving Names for High Fructose Corn Syrup | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
The food industry is attempting to hide the ingredient "high fructose corn syrup" from the public by renaming it “fructose.”
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that food manufacturers are trying to fool you again by changing the name of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) to just "fructose"?  "Fructose" manufactured this way is still HFCS and not the same as fruit which also contains fructose.

 

Fruit has essential fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals in addition to the fructose. The fiber helps to slow down the rate of fructose entering your bloodstream. Just remember to eat fruit in moderation and not eat for example four apples or bananas at one time.

 

Sugar and its derivatives feed and cause cancer as well as cause your blood sugar to spike, malnourish your brain and lead to chronic diseases.

 

Health tips:  Be sure to read labels carefully. If anyone of the substituted names or just sugar is listed in the first five ingredients, buy another product. If possible, reduce your consumption of processed food and buy ingredients to make your own plant based meals.

Ten foods that CLAIM to be healthy that are packed with sugar and fat

Ten foods that CLAIM to be healthy that are packed with sugar and fat | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Australian dietitian Alison Ginn has revealed the top 10 foods you think are healthy that are actually bad for you, including 'healthy' flavoured water, breakfast biscuits and low-fat yoghurt.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that big food manufacturers play sneaky word tricks on packaged processed food to deceive you into buying their product/brand? Don't be fooled or your health will suffer as a result. Fight back with your purse/wallet. Get in the habit of learning their lingo so you know the difference between "fake-food-speak" and real whole plant based food-truth.

 

Health Tips:  Anything with the words "sugar, HFCS, sugar free, ending in ose" are to be avoided. Sugar and its derivatives (artificial, hidden) feed and cause cancer, cause your blood sugar to spike, malnourish your brain, and are connected to so many of today's epidemics. Your best bet is to opt for whole fruit. 

 

What about vitamin water, fruit juice, gatorade, energy drinks you ask. Skip all of them. Again sugar and all sorts of chemical additives, toxins, and tons of caffeine are lurking inside that fancy dressed up bottle, can, or cup. Just drink real filtered water, homemade green juice with lots of fresh ginger root and one fruit. If you want coffee, make it yourself and take a thermos to work. Same with tea. Many of the commercial teas are loaded with GMOs. Buy loose leaf certified organic.

 

Skip anything fried because you really don't know what oil was used and of course the same pan is always used. Pan fry or sauté in camelina oil which has the highest smoke point and is rich in omega-3s. Healthy fat is good for you. Stay away from vegetable oils like corn, soybean, cottonseed, safflower, fake canola as these are GMO derived and contain omega 6s. Consuming too many omega 6 fats and not enough omega 3s causes inflammation.

 

Stay away from yogurts filled with GMOs and sugar. You can make your own yogurt with any of these plant based foods: coconut meat, coconut flakes, buckwheat (ancient grain), or raw nuts and use a high quality probiotic. Add fresh cut up fruit or chia seeds.

 

Do you like vegetable chips? Make your own and bake them or dehydrate them. You can make beet, sweet potato, kale, carrot, squash chips using camelina oil and nutritional yeast. Absolutely delicious.

Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that  a new study funded by the National Institutes of Health conducted by the University of Texas found what we already have known for years that high sugar consumption and the Standard American diet (SAD) are directly linked to cancer and other chronic diseases? Time to wean yourself off your sugar habit.

 

Sugar is connected to so many of today's epidemics from diabetes, heart disease, obesity, metabolic disorder, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, dementia, to cancer. The SAD is composed of non food, toxic chemicals, hidden sugar and high fructose corn syrup.

 

This high dose of sugar affects your brain as it becomes malnourished and shrinks. Imbalanced chemicals in the brain can express themselves in symptoms such as moodiness to brain fog, difficulty concentrating, to depression, rage, and instability.

 

Health tips:  Try to avoid these foods: sugar, artificial sweeteners, gluten as in wheat, simple carbs (white flour, commercial baked goods, boxed popcorn, salad dressings, etc), dairy, processed food, alcohol, soda, energy drinks, and too much caffeine.

The Scary Connection Between Sugar and Breast Cancer

The Scary Connection Between Sugar and Breast Cancer | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
A new study reveals an alarming link between diets high in sugar and a skyrocketing risk of breast cancer.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that what you consume plays more of a role in determining what diseases you may or may not get than genetics does? If you're eating tons of highly refined processed food and sugar, you're odds of getting cancer are greater. 

 

Health tips:  Consume real whole plant based food with little to no processed food and no sugar. Consider adding a new green, veggie, and fruit to your meals each week. Find a recipe you like and prepare it using your new choices. Mix and match your foods.

 

For example in place of beans, use lentils or chickpeas for protein. Add rutabaga and parsnip in place of carrots and celery. Add arugula in place of romaine lettuce. Have baked apples and figs with cinnamon for dessert. You decide your choices and your possibilities are endless for delicious nutritious goodness in every bite.

Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that recent studies are showing that sugar, specifically fructose and sucrose accelerate growth of breast  cancer and may spread to other body areas?  These findings support other studies that infer that people, maybe like you who consume more of a Standard American diet (SAD) of processed highly refined non food and large amounts of sugar, have a higher risk of cancer.

 

Health Tips: In place of sugar in your porridge, add loads of cinnamon, a few raisins, or frozen berries, nuts, carob, and slivers of dark chocolate with no added sugar. Cinnamon and coconut milk make every cup of unsweetened cocoa a special treat.

 

Eat one new whole fruit a week and create ways to use it in your meals. Eat more savory and spicy foods to up level your tastebuds. Add more grated ginger to your foods for a top of the day bite sure to please even a finicky eater.

This junk-food-funded elementary school curriculum is bonkers | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Kids are learning that they can exercise away Big Macs and Pepsis. Scientists beg to differ.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know there's no way on this planet for you or your kids to exercise away a junk non food regimen? Don't tell that to the Big Food corporations who are bankrolling a so called health foundation which is promoting an educational campaign on energy balance to school districts and other organizations. And their mission is to "help reduce obesity".

 

Sounds good, right? Guess again as the theme is "there are no good foods or bad foods - just keep eating all the fake sugary  food you want. "Too bad there's no real science connected with this program.

 

Health Tips:  There is no moderation when it comes to consuming sugar and highly processed refined non food. These ingredients all lead to chronic inflammation which then leads to chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, obesity, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and cancer.

 

In the new year make a health conscious decision to radically reduce these items from your meals. Then stick with it. and don't beat yourself up, if you have a little relapse. Start again and keep on with it as this will be the very best gift you can give yourself and your family.

 

Begin with your swapping out highly processed for lightly processed or make it yourself. In place of sugar, eat fruit, raw, cooked, dried in small amounts. Use cinnamon, vanilla bean, carob, lucuma, maple syrup, coconut sugar, Stevia to add more sweetened flavor, again in small amounts. You can use more cinnamon as this spice is highly rich in antioxidants. you can also use spicy herbs for a different taste sensation. 

 

Yes do continue or start an exercise program and move throughout your day. Drink lots of filtered water as water fills you up and helps your body's elimination process.

How Aspartame Effects the Brain

How Aspartame Effects the Brain | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Various effects of artificial sweeteners, including neurological effects, have been suspected. For example, aspartame—the chemical in Equal and Nutrasweet
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that Aspartame, (NutraSweet) AminoSweet, Splenda, and saccharin (Sweet N Low, Equal) have been poisoning your brains for years, not to mention the effects to your gut? These artificial sweeteners contain a combination of chemicals 1. aspartic acid, which is an amino acid with excitatory effects on brain cells 2. methanol, and 3. phenylalanine, which when broken down produces a compound that is a potent brain tumor causing chemical.

 

Aspartame consumption causes a variety of symptoms including panic attacks, slurred speech, depression, and migraines. All these sweeteners are found in most processed non food product including sodas, sugar free products, yogurts, chewing gum, flavored water, cereal, sauces, and the little packets in restaurants.

 

Health Tips: Avoid these artificial sweeteners like the plague, and while you're at it, eliminate all processed refined toxic non food from your home. This advice may sound like a broken record or in today's lingo, a broken DVD, but the message is clear; the more real whole plant based foods you consume, the healthier you , your body, brain, gut, organs, heart will be.

 

Remember there's always plant based stevia, coconut sugar, maple syrup, and small amounts of dried and fresh/frozen fruit to sweeten your food. Vanilla bean, cinnamon, lucuma, raw carob, and coconut butter sweeten as well.

Does Sugar Promote Heart Disease and Cancer? - Herbs Info

Does Sugar Promote Heart Disease and Cancer? - Herbs Info | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
High sugar consumption, Fructose in particular, has been implicated in the development of both heart disease and cancer... [read more]
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Sugar whether you love or despise it, it's ubiquitous in our culture today. It's found in almost every commercial processed refined food. High consumption of sugar for the average person  eating all this non food causes massive health problems. Even for people, maybe you, who eat towards the healthier side of the plate, sugar can be toxic.

 

Glucose is the fuel your cells use for energy. When it's in your blood, it's known as blood sugar. During digestion, glucose seeps through the intestinal wall and enters your bloodstream. However, cells require insulin to convert glucose into fuel. Insulin is produced by the pancreas and is released into the bloodstream when your pancreas senses that glucose levels are rising, usually after meals, so that more cells open up to let in the fuel they need.

 

Diabetes 2 results when your cells don't respond to insulin efficiently. when glucose levels are consistently elevated, this means that insulin isn't working right and your pancreas makes more of it. When cells don't open up in the presence of insulin, then you have what's known as insulin resistance. This is the first stage of type 2 and when this happens, your cells don't get enough glucose. You may experience varying levels of dizziness and fatigue.

 

Elevated levels can also cause excessive urination. Through this loss of water, sugar becomes even more concentrated in your blood. Concentrated glucose is a toxin that can damage your heart, eyes, kidneys, blood vessels, and other organs. Excess sugar in your blood also combines with protein and increases oxidation and free radical damage, which speeds up the aging process. This is why people with diabetes often look much older than their biological age.

 

Health tips: Be carb smart and eat healthy fat. Fat is not your enemy. Sugar is. Load your plate with heart healthy organic greens and veggies, nuts/seeds, legumes, ancient grains.  Have fruit for dessert or in the morning with your porridge, green smoothie, or salad.  

 

Swap out white rice, gluten bread, white potatoes for quinoa, homemade raw carrot cake, sweet potatoes. These are just some examples of foods you can easily substitute to lessen your sugar load.

 

Consider eating more raw and sprouted foods, and more fermented food. Hearty plant based real whole food soups like bean, lentil, split pea make warming nutritious meals for these seasons of Fall and Winter. Plant based real whole foods are nutrient dense, proving your body with key vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.

9 Reasons to Avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup like the Plague | Care2 Healthy Living | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Discover the serious health damage that eating HFCS causes--by best-selling author of 60 SECONDS TO SLIM & WEEKEND WONDER DETOX, Dr. Michelle Schoffro Cook, PhD, DNM.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that no matter how you view it, sugar is sugar is sugar? High fructose corn syrup, hidden sugars in processed refined non food, table sugar (sucrose) are all harmful to your body. Sugar and toxins have destroyed the lining of your gut by eating little holes in the epithelium, allowing for leaks onto your bloodstream.

 

HFCS goes directly to your liver and massive consumption by most people world wide leads to fatty liver disease. HFCS is the main driver behind the current epidemic of obesity, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, heart disease, cancer, and dementia.

 

Most of the corn in high fructose corn syrup is GMO. Scientists estimate that about 93% of all conventionally grown corn is genetically modified. What a scary combination; toxic sugar and toxic GMOs. No wonder so many people are so sick today.

 

Health Tips:  Take back your health because your the only one who can. Mainstream docs just don't know about nutrition and are overworked. Hospitals tout chemo and drugs (more toxins) and give patients sugary foods after surgery. The esteemed FDA isn't going to help anytime soon if you follow their track record.

 

Decide today to cut back on your consumption of sugar and buy organic to avoid GMOs. Purchase more plant based real whole food and very little processed food. Choose organic fruit for dessert or use fruit in  place of sugar in your desserts.

 

Here's an easy peasy delicious nutritious dessert anyone can make:

organic hemp seeds, raisins, cinnamon, raw cacao/carob

mix by hand or in FP until a ball is formed

roll into smaller balls

eat and enjoy

Are You Addicted to Sugar? - UC Davis Integrative Medicine | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Are you addicted to sugar? We are here today to explore the issue and take a closer look at sugar’s addictive qualities and give you some tips on ho
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that sugar is an addictive substance which causes changes in your brain's chemistry similar to what happens with drug use? Sugar stimulates the pleasure and reward center of your brain by increasing levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine. The more you consume this sweet poison, the dopamine sensitivity diminishes and you need to eat more each time to feel the same pleasure/reward.

 

Consuming this much sugar and/or all its derivatives, including processed food stuff,  containing hidden sugars, and artificial sweeteners sets your body up for a metabolic disaster. Your body was never designed to handle the onslaught of sugar consumption.

 

Sugar is acidic, feeds and causes cancer and other chronic diseases including diabetes, heart disease, obesity, non alcoholic fatty liver disease, and Alzheimer's.

 

Health Tips:  Consume plant based real whole food. Eliminate processed non food stuff. Eat more root veggies like carrots, beets, and swet potatoes to get your sweet taste. When making desserts add in vanilla bean, cinnamon, carob, a tiny drop or two of organic liquid Stevia, or a small amount of grade B organic maple syrup. Consume some ripe fruit if you are healthy. Remember to drink filtered water throughout your day. Add a lemon/lime slice or a drop of liquid Stevia to your filtered water.

 

If you're just starting to change your eating habits, understand that your taste buds will adapt as you begin phasing out sugar and processed non food. It takes about three weeks or so. Don't beat yourself up if you consume sugar. Just continue on your wellness path.

U.S. adults consume about 150 pounds in a year while children consume about 200 pounds. These are scary statistics and especially when you consider how many of these adults and kids are getting chronic diseases including diabetes, heart disease, and obesity much earlier in their life.

 

Highly processed non food stuffs contain these sweet poisons as well as dangerous chemicals, additives, and pesticides. Think GMO which have never been tested by any agency of the government.

 

Health Tips:  If you are healthy you can eat organic ripe fruit. If you have a chronic disease, avoid all sugar (table sugar, aka sucrose, high fructose corn syrup aka HFCS, hidden sugars, and artificial sweeteners, plus avoid unripe fruit. According to Dr Brian Clement, Hippocrates Health Institute, "when you remove sugar from sick people, they improve".

 

Are you aware that fructose is metabolized in your liver and is more fat producing?  Fructose acts like fat in your body, reducing much needed oxygen.  Insulin doesn't get produced and the  hormones leptin and grehlin don't function properly. Leptin tells your brain you're full, stop eating, but it fails to work when you consume fructose. Your brain thinks you're starving even though you're full, and so you continue eating. 

 

Do you like wine? Well consider, wine has massive amounts of sugar. Try opting for organic green tea or filtered water with half a drop of liquid organic Stevia. Stevia, a plant  is a safe alternative which is 300 times sweeter than sugar. Because it's so much sweeter use just a tiny amount to avoid an aftertaste.

 

Here's another tip for you. When you feel the craving to have sweets, chew four (4) tiny Chlorella pills which will take away that craving. Chlorella is an algae. Algae is very good for your health.

Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that sugar is a metabolic disaster waiting to happen to you when you consume  too much of this sweet poison?  Sugar and all of its derivatives are not your friend.

 

Health Tips: Get off the highly refined processed non food roller coaster and start eating real whole plant based food. Consume a small amount of plant sugars including whole food dates, prunes, raisins, and grade B maple syrup, or coconut sugar for baking. For beverages add lemon/lime slices or cut frozen fruit like berries. If you like Stevia, use a very small amount. Buy organic.

Then there's the simple carbs. You know all the store bought cookies, pastries, flours, etc.  Your body thrives on complex carbs like produce.

 

Yes even the vegetable oils like fake canola, and soybean, cottonseed, safflower, corn. These heavily GMO sprayed oils are high in omega 6. Your body needs more omega 3s like coconut, olive, camellia oils and other healthy fats like avocado.

Here is why Aspartame is the Most Dangerous Substance Added to our Food Supply. | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Here is the reason why Aspartame (and other artificial sweeteners) can make you sick and diabetic.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that artificial sweeteners as well as sugar, fructose, and hidden sugars found in highly refined processed non food cause inflammation and chronic diseases? These are all sweet poisons which are addictive at high levels of consumption. 

 

From this new study published in 2014, comes the research that  found that "depending on your gut microbes , you are either able to handle artificial sweeteners, or you react to them in a negative way".  The view that the artificial sweeteners couldn't be digested has radically changed.

 

Health Tips:  Liquid Stevia is a far better replacement for your beverages. Use small amounts of organic grade B maple syrup and dried fruits for your homemade nutrient dense desserts. Or just eat a few pieces of organic fruit.

Sandi Cornez's insight:

Are you still drinking sodas? After watching this video, you just might want to reconsider your beverage of choice. Drinking filtered water with frozen berries and/or Stevia is a better choice.


  No matter which way you down it, sugar and other artificial sweeteners are bad news. From constant cravings, dizziness, weight gain, to blood sugar spiking to diabetes, heart disease, obesity, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, tooth decay, and cancer, this is one refined food you need to ditch quickly.


Health Tips:  If you change just one habit, make it to stop buying and drinking soda.  Instead, eat real whole plant based food and drink filtered water with herbs, frozen fruit, Stevia, lemon/lime slices, or plain. Eat more cold soups. Make yourself a delicious chia seed pudding with fruit and eat that in place of drinking sodas.


Homemade Green smoothies and green juices are good choices  to have in place of commercial bought drinks. And also stay away from those so called nasty energy drinks which also contain too much sugar and caffeine.

Here's a diet that actually works—and has the science to prove it

Here's a diet that actually works—and has the science to prove it | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Unlike low-fat regimens, which a giant new study finds are pretty worthless.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that by consuming plant based real whole foods daily with no processed refined fake food, you don't need to be on any diet, whether low fat, high fat, low carb, high carb? Most diets don't work anyway, but they do cause the yo-yo effect - fat off, fat on again and other health issues.

 

The article makes clear what we now know that fat isn't the problem, but sugar is. Of course there's differing camps on which fat is the healthiest. Yet all of these groups agree that trans fats (formerly known as hydrogenated) are dangerous to your health. This curation site promotes only plant based healthy fats like camelina, extra virgin olive, hemp, and coconut oil, avocados, and raw nuts.

 

Health tips: Are you aware that sweet potatoes can be stuffed and eaten as a main dish? Use one small sweet potato, add cinnamon, and nut butter and you have a tasty dessert without using any sugar. There are oodles of healthy plant based recipes using only fruit and/or spices online. Try one or two new recipes a week with no added sugar to help you cut down on your sugar usage.

Viral Alternative News: This Poison Destroys Your Bones but Everyone Drinks It (Even Daily) | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with the intake of soft drinks? "Drinking just one can of soda a day, appears to raise the odds of getting fatty liver disease by 45%". This information comes from Dr Michael Greger and his new book "How Not to Die".

 

The NIH-AARP study which followed hundreds of thousands of people for ten years found that frequent consumption of sweetened beverages may increase the risk of depression in older adults. Even adding sugar to your beverages may negate the positive effects on mood of the tea or coffee. Adding aspartame found in NutraSweet and Equal appeared to increase the risk of depression.

 

Sugar in all its forms from high fructose corn syrup to artificial sweeteners causes free radical damage which leads to chronic inflammation which then leads to chronic diseases.

 

Health Tips:  Eat real whole plant based food and get your sweets from small helpings of dried fruit and whole fruit. Drink filtered water plain, with flavored Stevia,  or with sliced lemon/lime or frozen fruit pieces.

You Asked: What's the Healthiest Sweetener?

You Asked: What's the Healthiest Sweetener? | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
Why sweet and good-for-you might not go together

Via Institute for Responsible Nutrition
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that the healthiest sweetener you can consume is just a very few organic dates and raisins? This information most likely isn't the answer you were expecting. If you are among those people who eat more plant based real whole food, exercise and have adopted  a healthier lifestyle than chewing on a few fruits probably won't make much of a difference for your body's health.

 

However if you're in the sickness/chronic disease group that the majority of people around the world find themselves today, then you want to do everything possible to avoid consumption of any type of sugar, whether it be high fructose corn syrup, sucrose, artificial sweeteners, and even fruit. Yes fruit.

 

According to Dr Brian Clement, Director of Hippocrates Health Institute, "you can't eat fruit if you're fighting a disease". This information flies in the face of many other health professionals who advocate consumption of fruit is fine. To be more informed and educate yourself, read Dr Brian's newest book, "Sweet Disease: 

What Sugars and Other Artificial Sweeteners are Doing to Your Health”. This subscriber is in no way receiving any monetary payment for this recommendation, It's to help you educate yourself.


In 2014, the percentage of people in the U.S. who were obese was up to 37.7%. Folks there's an epidemic occurring and people need help. A huge way you can help is to stop purchasing processed refined, GMO food. High Fructose Corn Syrup is GMO as well as deadly for your body. Write to your Senators and call them. Sign petitions for Labeling of GMO foods. About 93% of all corn and soybeans in the U.S. is GMO. Big Food companies will listen when their bottom line is decimated by you the consumer. Stand up for your right to eat #CleanFood. If not now, when?


Health Tips:  One of the best ways you can begin to slow down your sugar habit is to adopt a more plant based real whole food regimen, excluding fruit and not buying any or almost any processed refined non food. Yes, this isn't easy, but you have to start somewhere. Take baby steps at first and work with a good nutritional health advisor and/or Functional/Integrative health professional. Dr John McDougal has good information on his site that is Free.


Clean out your kitchen cabinets/pantry. Eat as much raw greens and veggies as you can. Steaming lightly and or dehydrating food works well. Add sprouted organic food and fermented food to this new food lifestyle. Add organic herbs and spices to flavor your food and give it zing. Involve your family and friends and make it a supportive fun activity. Your taste buds will acclimate to the new food you're eating very quickly.

Study Says Sugar's Harm Is Not About Weight, It's Just 'Because It's Sugar.' Is This True?

Study Says Sugar's Harm Is Not About Weight, It's Just 'Because It's Sugar.' Is This True? | Dangers of sugar consumption | Scoop.it
This has certainly been the decade of jumping the sugar ship – and largely with good reason. The studies to illustrate what excess sugar can do to the body keep rolling in. And a new one in the journal Obesity goes a little further by trying to tease apart the difference between cutting out sugar and losing weight. It argues that sugar isn’t bad because it makes you gain weight. It’s bad because it brings about other, more sinister changes to the body – metabolic changes that are distinct from weight.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the U.S.  A FaceBook post said that "there's always room for more than one piece of pie" on Thanksgiving. That may be true, depending on what ingredients are in the pie.

 

If you've been reading this curation site, then you know that excess sugar consumed on a daily basis doesn't just cause you to gain weight. It causes a metabolic disaster in your body which leads to fatty liver disease, obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, and heart disease.

 

Health Tips: Did you know you can prepare delicious sweet tasting pies, cakes, sweetened breads, cookies without using cane sugar and dairy? Your friends and family will ask you for your recipe.Your recipes and be baked or prepared raw.

 

Ingredients you can use:  a small amount of grade B organic maple syrup or coconut sugar, or raisins, or dates, or mission figs, or bananas.  Add ins:  carrots, or pumpkin puree, sweet potatoes, and spices:  cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice.

Just like an artist, you have to try different foods, ingredients, techniques. Involve your family. Your kids will love it and best of all, they can lick the bowl.
