Do not get too excited upon hearing that sugar is a health food. We live in a society where publicists get rich by making the public believe that a thing is good for you even if it isn’t. It is actually easy to mislead people that sugar is just amazing—it has zero fat, makes food taste and you feel better. These qualities are enough to make you go gaga about sugar.
In reality, sugar is bad for you. But it is just too easy to forget about that especially if you are constantly bombarded by misinformation. Add the addictive sensation of sugar melting on your taste buds, it is indeed hard to resist. However, today’s world cannot go on without sugar. It can be considered a necessary evil.
Knowing and fully understanding how sugar harms our bodies is the only way we can prevent it from destroying our health.
Sugar is everywhere and often in disguise
Sugar is a constant presence. The obvious ones are from desserts, candies, and soda but they are also found in foods that are not naturally sweet like pasta, bread, milk, and even fat-free substitutes—they are simply everywhere. Once consumed, your body absorbs the sugar into your blood in the form of glucose.
It doesn’t mean that if it is not sweet, it does not contain lots of sugar. So, avoiding sweets does not ensure that you are off from sugar. Take this for example: A slice of white bread, even if it tastes almost insipid, still converts to 12 teaspoons of sugar. No matter what, sugar is sugar and the body responds to it the same way every time.
What happens when sugar enters the body?
There is a direct relationship between sugar consumption and insulin production. Once ingested, it is quickly digested and enters the blood. The blood-glucose levels shoot up which signals your body to produce a hormone called insulin. Keep in mind that the amount of sugar you consume will dictate the amount of insulin your body will produce.
Yes, zero-fat sugar will make you fat.
Greater amounts of insulin in your body mean that you are in “fat-storage” mode longer. That’s a universal biological law we cannot dispute. This why foods labeled “fat-free” are not enough because sugar can still hinder your weight loss aspirations.
How to deal with sugar in the real world
However, let’s be practical and realistic. Completely giving up sugar is almost impossible. Can you imagine your dietary life without it? I don’t think so. But don’t lose hope—despite the impossibility of sugar-deprivation—with the right strategy and dietary choices, you can diminish the bad effects of sugar in your body.
To put it briefly, you can still consume sugar but still lose weight and maintain good health. The strategy is mainly about blood-glucose level management. If you are able to master the highs and lows of sugar levels over time, you can curb your cravings and lose weight. On top of all these, weight loss and well-maintained blood-glucose levels lead to curing and preventing diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases.
