Sugar has taken over the modern diet, and only recently have doctors and the medical community started to try and turn that tide. The research reveals most of us consume far too much sugar. The rise of diabetes as a common medical ailment confirms this, particularly since most modern diabetes patients contract Type-2 diabetes, which is entirely preventable with proper diet and exercise. The sugar in our food, always boosting our blood sugar, is literally making millions of people sick.
There’s been something of a rush to demonize sugar. And, to be fair, excessive sugar is undoubtedly bad for you. There’s no arguing that. But sugar isn’t poison; it’s a natural substance. And some levels of it are useful to the body. It’s one of the most concentrated sources of energy for the body, for example. In fact, the human body has evolved to even convert non-sugar substances into forms of sugar during digestion. Which is part of the problem when health conscious people try to restructure their diets to something better.
Carbohydrates come in many forms. Some of the most common include breads and pastas, but even some starchy vegetables, like potatoes, are rich in carbs. And when the body processes those carbs, it converts them into glucose. For this reason, it can be harder than anticipated to cut the sugar out of your diet. But it’s worth the effort.
Too much sugar is bad for you, but that doesn’t make it a demon. Look at sugar constructively. #HealthStatus
