Sugar

Get off the ‘Sugar Rollercoaster’.  Sugar is a ‘simple’ carbohydrate.  It has no nutritional value whatsoever.  It causes your blood glucose level to rise.  When the level drops it stimulates hunger for more sugar.  This is how it becomes addictive.  Your blood glucose levels go up and down like a roller coaster.  Any excess glucose is converted to fat and stored in your body making you obese.

Significantly reducing your sugar intake can have a positive health impact within days.  Once you have reduced your sugar intake you will recognise sweet foods and be able to avoid them.  You will have no need for artificial sweeteners.

Sugar, grains and other carbohydrates also foster inflammation in the body, not only in the arteries but the brain, liver, digestive tract and joints leading to many of the chronic diseases we see today which are supposedly ‘incurable’.  Many people report relief from all the above in a relatively short time after reducing carbohydrates.

Most soft drinks, energy drinks and flavoured milk exceed 10 teaspoons of sugar per serving !

Myths Busted

Recent medical studies have found that these ‘myths’ are no longer true:

  • Saturated fat is bad for you.  It is ‘converted’ into cholesterol.  It is a primary cause of high
    blood pressure, heart disease and obesity.  (Keys, 1953)

  • The major portion of food intake should be from the ‘Bread, Cereal, Rice & Pasta Food Group’.
    Sugar may be added to anything.  (USA Food Pyramid, 1977)

  • Eating cholesterol and saturated fat raises cholesterol levels in the blood.
    High cholesterol in the blood is the cause of heart disease.
    Statins save lives in healthy people without heart disease.

  • Lowering cholesterol has no effect on memory loss, brain function, muscle damage, diabetes,
    low immunity, hormone production and fighting infection.

  • Eating ‘skim’, ‘lite’, 'low fat' and ‘fat-free’ food reduces your weight.
    The best way to lose weight is to exercise. 
    Low fat food reduces your risk of heart disease.

  • Seed oils, such as margarine, do not contribute to heart disease.

  • Eating 'whole grains' is good for you.  Sugar is not addictive.
