Did you know that consuming less sugar on a daily basis is just as harmful for your body as consuming more sugar daily? Sugar itself is the problem as there’s no nutrition, no essential fiber, nothing your body can use for its functions. Anyway you look at it, sugar is bad news.

 

Yes sugar tastes sweet and gives you a quick rush which is one reason so many people are hooked into this sweet poison. Food manufacturers know that now that the long kept secret is out that sugar was the problem all along and not fat, it’s time to reduce the amounts of sugar in their products or lose market share.

 

It will be interesting to watch to learn what new fangled ideas big food develops as is the case with Nestle and its new formulation. Reading this article, it seemed as if the new formulation was couched in doublespeak. Sort of sounds like the way many political folks talk today.

 

Almost all processed highly refined and even organic food contain sugars, artificial sweeteners and a host of other lab created carcinogenic toxins which decimate your gut bacteria. Your health is influenced by your bacteria. When the balance of the food you consume and your gut changes, this affects your blood sugar, type 2 diabetes, and many other diseases plus Alzheimer’s disease.

 

In a study older people with no sign of dementia were given sudden increases of sugar, the tests showed these people were heading towards dementia. When you consume simple carbs, devoid of prebiotic essential fiber, you are burning sugar as an energy source and this increases inflammation. Inflammation when it becomes chronic, leads to a myriad of diseases and ages you.

 

Health Tips: You can be doing everything right in terms of the food you’re consuming, but if you’re still eating sugar, then you’re burning sugar and harming your body. Candy bars are not real food that your body can utilize. Neither is any other so called food which contains sugar, artificial sweeteners, and hidden chemical induced sugars.

 

Guess what? Sugars touted healthy are also to be avoided. David Perlmutter MD, neurologist said it best “I don’t care if your bee is living in an ashram, honey is still sugar so get off all sugars.”. Brian Clement, Nutritionist, Co-Director of Hippocrates Health Institute wrote “Sweet Disease” and has helped thousands of people to change their food choices and discover wellness.

 

Organic liquid Stevia a few drops, yes a few, not the whole bottle. Stevia is 300 times sweeter than sugar and will have an aftertaste if you use too much. If you don’t prefer Stevia, then use organic cinnamon, carob, vanilla bean to flavor your treats. Or flavor with a little cayenne for a zesty taste.

 

And do some form of exercise 5 or 6 days a week for 20-30 or more minutes a day, Aerobic, resistance, weight lifting, high or low intensity all help your gut bacteria.

 

Get a good nights sleep 7-9 hours or 6-8 hours. Sleep issues affect your gut flora.

 

Stay hydrated with filtered water and eat avocados and organic raw nuts/seeds for healthy fats. If you like coconut milk and/or oil, use a little. Coconut oil is wonderful as a moisturizer.

11 Weird Things Sugar Does to Your Body

11 Weird Things Sugar Does to Your Body | Healthy Eating News | 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.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, April 27, 2016 8:48 PM

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.
