It’s the sugar that makes you fat, not the fat.
Why can’t people eat or dink something without it being sweetened? You go to any coffee shop and people aren’t usually ordering coffee. They are ordering dessert with some coffee in it.
Every “nutritional bar” has sweeteners in it. The newest ones that are “designed by nutritionalist” use “organic agave”. But didn’t they see the independent research coming out about how agave sweeteners are just as bad as HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP (HFCS)?
HFCS is much worse than refined sugar. And so are most of the ingredients in any diet soda and most “no sugar” processed foods that use sugar substitutes.
There is even added cane sugar in “organic” chicken or beef stock. Why??? Why do we need sweeteners in our chicken or beef stock?
Sugar should be classified as a controlled substance. The human race is hooked on it and it is probably one of the biggest causes of problems like obesity and other major diseases in the US. It should be taxed to help with our health care (I want to call it disease care) system.
If you eat healthy fats in a whole food form and you are active your body should use it to burn for energy, for hormone building blocks in the body and more.
When you eat sugar, or it’s substitutes, your body starts burning sugar for energy and starts storing the fat. Let me say this another way also just incase you didn’t get it. When you eat a diet that regularly contains sugar (this includes carbohydrates like bread, pasta, potatoes, cookies, muffins, pastries, etc…) your body is going to burn sugar to function and not the fat. It will then store the fat because it is not using it for energy.
So remember, just because you get your vanilla, hazelnut, latte with non-fat milk doesn’t mean that it’s going to help you shed pounds. Even if you get it with splenda instead of sugar you are going to be using sugar instead of fat for energy and thus storing fat. Even if you eat a low fat diet-your body will store your other foods that you are eating as fat. That is just the way it is.
If you think about how we might of eaten hundreds of thousands of years ago, the only sugary foods that we would of encountered are fruits that were in season and maybe honey. Think this way to eat right.
