Let’s get the boring science but stay out of the way shall we? Carbohydrates are one of the macronutrients that your body needs to survive. Along with proteins and fats, carbohydrates are part of the building blocks for every cell and thus functions in your body. Moreover, like everything else in our lives, carbohydrates are classified into two types: simple and complex. Individual differences is the number of molecules of sugar (I promise to not easily provoked later) on the chain. For example, simple carbohydrates only have one or two sugars while complex carbohydrates have three or more sugar. Therefore, it makes sense that complex carbohydrates take longer to break down and digest while just opposite true for simple carbohydrates, they are digested and absorbed very quickly. You need both however, is the source and how much you get matters.
Simple carbohydrates, sugars, aka the most popularly known as clear as candy, soda, and fruit “juice”. But it is also important to understand the simple carbohydrates are also known as white, bleached, enriched flour, white rice, white pasta, (note the connection yet?), And alcohol. Well is not that just suck! Yes, it does. Actually do it. Most of us grew up with this kind of food. We not only have fun over the years but we still young in our thirties and so we could only see the uh, changes in ourselves. “Unexplained” changes. Also sugar in fruits, vegetables, and milk. So if we eat these things all day long we we get a fairly simple carbohydrates in our diet. Something more efficient, equitable and store excess fat in the body. Does this mean you should give up the fruit for some candy? I’m not even answer that question.
Fruits, vegetables and yes, even milk (I have mixed feelings about milk I will discuss in another article) is an essential nutrient associated with it. Remove them in your diet eh … Atkins, depriving your body of essential nutrients needed.Complex terms of carbohydrates such as whole grains, “perfect” which means grain provides vital nutrients, brown rice, some vegetables such as broccoli, and beans consist of peas, lentils, grains etc. Complex understand their bodies and therefore does not create a spike in your blood sugar. Simple carbohydrates do. Because it is absorbed quickly, they create high blood sugar quickly, the pancreas work extra hard as organ had to give insulin to help stabilize your blood sugar. Moreover, taking the place of the body needs sugar and give all the profits to the liver where it is stored as fat and is responsible for causing the liver to produce more cholesterol. What? Sugar is also responsible for high cholesterol? Who knows … A diet high in sugar is a major concern for us right now because almost everyone has sugar in it.
Sugar is almost disguised as high-fructose corn syrup or corn syrup alone. A very cheap, very robust concoction was established in 1970. A great discovery for food manufacturers (long shelf life, low-cost alternative to sugar, just a little more sweet) but it is bad for human health. When sugar is a major cause of obesity and “adult onset” diabetes type II (in quotes because children as young as five were found to have symptoms of this debilitating disease). It is also responsible for internal inflammation – this is a topic for another time inflation is a major contributor to various physical problems, including cancer and autoimmune diseases.Sugar will most affect you. Have you noticed you feel really wonderful after you eat a Snickers bar and wash it down with some Mountain Dew? I know I always do. We got sugar “high” but so unreliable as Newton said, “what goes up must come down”. Spectacular crash you think about an hour later because of the infusion of insulin in your body just put out to help stabilize your blood sugar. Now you’re ready to tired, cranky, moody, and irritable.
It is just not worth the high. What most people do in a situation to win more sugar. Sounds like a drug addict. Although sugar acts like a drug and actually “sugar addicts” out there. Are you one? What now? Here are five ways to ensure that you do not have excess sugar and live way.
1.) Avoid white sugar. Try to put the natural sweeteners such as raw honey, brown rice syrup, blue agave syrup, maple syrup, and Stevie. Beware, however, with syrup. They contain a lot of fructose and you have to use sparingly. Once you start to get the white stuff out of your system and your taste buds back to normal, you just do not want to see something so sweet and enjoyed eating foods in their natural state.
2.) Avoid white flour. It is difficult because it covers all the pastries, bagels, donuts, cake, cupcake, cake, bread, and the list goes on. Not really no substitute here. Need to reduce the item before you completely eliminate them. For better to just say no!
3.) Say no to booze. Too many fermented sugar alcohol. When you ferment the sugar, you make wine. Moderation is the key, but: I’m not trying to take all the pleasure you. I want you to realize the truth and if it is to stay away from sugar, then you should include all alcohol.
4.) Now there is very little white rice and sugar thoroughly, brown rice has more. It is the fact that the brown and white rice contain mostly carbohydrates so you want to limit the amount. I have no problem with eating rice and as we all know is not the healthiest people on the planet population Okinawa. But you have to choose the healthier of two, one of which have not been stripped of all goodness and sent through processing plants several times. Choose brown or whole grain rices.
5.) Reduce intake of milk. Consists of about lactose milk. Lactose is the sugar. When you add cream to your coffee sugar increases your sugar. When you eat cheese pizza, you eat sugar on top of sugar (crust). Away, and reduce as much as you can.
6.) Read the label. This is the most important piece of advice everyone should follow. As I said before the sugar in everything, even the newborn infant formula. You have to read the labels for all of your purchase. If it contains high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup or other sugars, which in any way that ends in “ose” is a sugar, throw it away! For example, maltose, dextrose, sucrose, lactose All sugars.
These not so simple in theory but simple changes that will have a huge impact on your health and therefore life. Although you can not remove all of it, just know every step in the right direction is a step forward measures aimed at a more healthy and happy life. If you have children please share this information with them. It is the children who suffer now and our responsibility to ensure that they live longer than their parents because it is the first generation of children who are expected to die before them.
