1850 Delon Wright Jersey , the average American consumed about twenty pounds of sugar every year. Today, the average American consumes 141 pounds of sugar (an SUV-full) annually. The 2011 USDA approximates the average American ingests two tons of sugar in a lifetime. Yes, that’s per person.
Most of this sugar comes from high fructose corn syrup which is the main ingredient in most processed foods. But, if you read the nutrition labels, you’ll promptly notice that sugar is either added or exists naturally (such as in dairy and fruit) in over 80% of the produce in the grocery store. Soda pop, juice drinks, milk Pascal Siakam Jersey , and pure fruit juice are the leading sources of sugar from drinks.
Your body can’t tell the difference between fructose from apples, lactose from milk, galactose from potatoes, or sucrose from honey. Because their molecular structures are nearly identical, these saccharides are all metabolized by your body in the exact same way. Additionally, all fruit and starchy carbohydrates such as grains, legumes Jakob Poeltl Jersey , corn, and potatoes, will immediately get converted into glucose in the bloodstream. According to Harvard Health Publications, pizza, mashed potatoes, raisins, popcorn Norman Powell Jersey , and Grape Nuts (a supposed “health food”) all have a glycemic index (glucose = 100) above 70 which is 15 points higher than a Snickers bar. Fructose (from corn and fruit) is one of the worst kinds of sugar because it’s very glycating which can be very damaging to your tissues. A spiked glycemic index brought on by the intake of these carbohydrate foods eventually leads to insulin resistance and candida overgrowth.
Insulin is a pancreatic hormone that assists the body metabolize blood glucose by binding with receptors on cells (much like a key fits snugly into a lock). Once the insulin hormone has “unlocked the door” into the cell and glucose is inserted, it is then either burned for fuel or stored as fat in the form of glycogen. Every time you consume excessive carbs, the pancreas has to produce an unnaturally high amount of insulin which eventually becomes toxic to the cells. Eventually, the cells need a break from the insulin onslaught. So, what does your Intelligent Body do to compensate fo this? Well, it downgrades the number of receptors so that the cells don’t have to receive the insulin as often. This insulin resistance causes type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure Jonas Valanciunas Jersey , anxiety, hypoglycemia, ADHD, and systemic candida.
In the gut, the ratio of “unfriendly” bacteria to “friendly” bacteria is about 15% to 85% in a healthy body. Although, when you base your diet on foods and drinks that are high in carbs, the Intelligent Body counterbalances by shifting from an oxygenation process to a fermentation process. And Voila! Your gut gets altered into a yeast manufacturing plant that creates billions of candida fungi every time you eat a plate of pasta or half a banana. You’ve just added yourself to the every-increasing trend of people who are unwittingly addicted to sugar.
Besides sugar OG Anunoby Jersey , it is wise to abstain from all artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose. Studies have shown them to cause fast weight gain (despite their zero calorie claims), increase your risk for cancer, and have been associated with numerous other diseases. The only sweetener I’ve found to be safe is pure Stevia (no ingredients added).
