Today's article focuses on sugars in our diet. The hidden sugars in the food we eat can actually contribute to fat gain. Excess sugars causes us to gain excess calories that eventually gets converted to stored fat.
Where does Sugar in our Diet Come From?
Sugar provides "empty calories" (calories with no nutritional value). One teaspoon of sugar contains 20 calories and not much else.
Consuming too many beverages and food high in added sugar can lead to:
* Excess calorie intake: It also spoils your appetite for nutrotious food.
* Tooth decay: especially if oral hygiene is neglected.
We get our sugar from two main sources: 1) what is found naturally in food such as milk, fruit and some vegetables 2) what is added to food during processing or preparation.
There are different forms of sugar and no one form is healthier than the other. Always read food labels to detect the added sugar. If you see any of the ingredients listed below as the first few ingredients, the food has high added sugar content.
