Is Sugar Evil?

By | Behavior Change, Uncategorized

Everywhere I look and everywhere I read, I have been seeing articles, and studies that are continually showing strong evidence to the fact that sugar is possibly the #1 cause of the obesity and health related illnesses.  Over the past 30 years we have consumed quite a bit less fat in our diets, and that obviously hasn’t helped lower obesity rates.  But the amount of sugar that we have been eating has become staggering.  It is in everything we eat.

I have written many articles on the sugar subject.  Below you will find a couple links to previous articles.

The bitter truth: This blog post and video have probably helped more of my clients lose weight than any other article I have posted.

Confessions of a sugar addict

Within the last week I have come across two very well written articles on the problems with sugar.  I share these with you in hopes that you will read them and will become more and more knowledgable about your body and how the foods you put in it, directly affect your health.

This first article I am going to share with you, was sent to me from my good friend Dr. Isaac.  This article, gets a little bit chemistry heavy towards the middle, so for those of you who have taken biochemistry, you will really enjoy it.  🙂  If you don’t care about the science so much, then just skim through those couple pages.

I found it extremely interesting how the different carb types affect the body, and how some lead to obesity more than others.

The second article was sent to me from my client Aimee.  This is a New York times article that takes a very good look at sugar in our society.  It is extremely well written.

It is my hope that you maybe think twice about drinking sodas or eating candy on a regular basis.  Just like anything else, moderation is key and a little sugar probably won’t do you any harm.  But if you can start to shift yourself away from sugar, I can almost promise you, you will lose weight, have more energy,  have less aches and pains, and sleep better.

I want to challenge those of you who have a sugar problem to try to not eat added sugar for 14 days and see how you feel.

Cutting Out Sugar = Fat Loss

I have probably shared with you well over 1000 tips on this blog throughout the past year to help you lose weight and get in shape.  As we enter 2010 I tried to come up with one that trumps all the others if you are looking for fat loss, and quick fat loss at that.  I also looked at everything unhealthy we do in our lives to create sickness and disease, and it comes back to the same topic

Sugar!

I already know you know that sugar isn’t the best thing for you, but I don’t think you know just how bad it is and how it is making you fat as well as harm your body.  If you struggle with too much sugar watch this 30 second video 10 times in a row and ingrain it into your mind

Now that you have a disgusting image of what sugar is really doing to you,  I would like you to try to find some extra time and sit down and watch this lengthy video (maybe over the weekend).  Break it up into 3 30 min chunks if you need to.  This is the most scientifically backed presentation I have ever seen on the affects of sugar.  The presenter is making some very bold statements and has research to back it up.  I always try to find some middle ground in the argument and say that you can have sugar in moderation.  The problem is sugar is in almost EVERYTHING!  So it is very tough to have moderation.  The guy who is presenting is far smarter than me when it comes to this topic, but I want to let you know that for 100’s of my clients who have nearly eliminated sugar, and for myself when I do so before my fitness shows, I can tell you there is no simpler and quicker way to lose fat and feel amazing!  I guarantee that!
