Sugar is as ADDICTIVE as CoCAINE and Sugar Makes you FAT!!!

There are two main types of sugar, sucrose (table sugar) and fructose.

Sugar is ADDICTIVE!!!!!sugar-03

James DiNicolantonio is a cardiovascular research scientist at St. Luke’s Mid-America Heart Institute in Kansas City, Mo.  He recently published a comprehensive review of dozens of studies in which he contends that sugar is more dangerous than salt when it comes to risk for heart disease. He says that refined sugar is similar to cocaine — a white crystal extracted from sugar cane rather than coca leaves — and that studies show it can be even more addictive than the recreational drug.

SUGAR makes you FAT!!!

Sugar (sucrose) and high fructose corn syrup contain two molecules: glucose and fructose.

Glucose is absolutely vital to life and is an integral part of our metabolism. Our bodies produce it and we have a constant reservoir of it in the bloodstream.  Every cell in the body can use glucose for energy. If we don’t get glucose from our diets, our bodies produce what we need out of proteins and fats.

Fructose, however, is very different. This molecule is not a natural part of the metabolism and humans do not produce it. When we eat a lot of sugar, most of the fructose gets metabolized by the liver. There it gets turned into fat, which is then secreted into the blood.

Eating more fructose sugar sets up an extremely powerful biochemical drive to make you eat more, burn less and get fat. Trying to exert willpower over this powerful drive can be next to impossible.  Excess fructose consumption dysregulates short-term energy balance on a meal-to-meal basis AND throws long-term energy balance out of whack.

 

So my question to you is…  Whatcha gonna do?
