Last week In sugar and weightloss part I video series, I covered:
✅ 4 common types of sugar (glucose, sucrose, fructose, and HFCS -> High fructose corn syrup)
✅ Other sources of sugar such as starchy carbohydrates and how different macronutrients are metabolized in the body
3 reasons why sugar is not good for you
✅ High in calories – 46 calories per teaspoonful
✅ Causes elevated glucose and insulin levels in the body
✅ Disruption of metabolic functions, causes weight gain or impedes weight loss and creates dependency #sugaraddiction
🔹️Did you know that hidden sugars are found in these food items? salad dressings, baked beans, bbq beans, breakfast cereals, Tomato sauce/ketchup, Tomato sauce for pasta, flavored water, sports drinks, dried fruit, Muesli/Granola, Granola bars, Nut butters (peanut butter, almonds butter, etc), Jam, marmalades, marinades, yogurt…the list goes on and on and on😱😱
Sugar is hidden is a lot of items and disguised with fancy names such as dextrin, maltose, dextrose, maltodextrin, saccharin, diatase, ethyl maltol…just to name a few. Why so many names for sugar and why are they not good for you?
In the Sugar and Weight Loss Part 2 Video series, I discuss the 4 types of healthy sugar. These are types that are good for diabetics and help in managing glucose levels and for the average person that wants to lose weight without giving up the sweet taste in tea, oats, coffee and such.
✅ Stevia extracted from the Stevia rebaudiana plant
✅ Erythritol – fermentation of yeast from simple sugars
✅ Monkfruit – fruit from Asia/China
✅ Yacon syrup made from a South America plan
What makes the 4 types of sugar above healthy? How do they support weight loss and where can you find them? Why is honey, agave, maple syrup not as healthy. How about artificial sweeteners – splenda, canderel etc? Are these healthy?
