There is a 95% chance that you eat too much sugar every single week. Most people think of sugar as being the white sugar you would put into a dessert recipe. But that is only one type of sugar, and what we will learn today is that your body responds to certain foods as if they were sugar.
The problem with sugar is how your body responds to it. Your blood sugar quickly rises and then your body releases a hormone called insulin to bring this high blood sugar down. As this takes place, the sugary food you ate quickly becomes stored as body fat, and then your brain thinks you are hungry again, so you eat another sugary food.
But some foods mimic sugar, and your body responds to them in a very similar way to white sugar. Some examples of these foods are: breads, pasta, chips, some fruits, cereals, and potatoes.
The major problem with eating these foods frequently is that they make you fat. They raise insulin levels chronically, which is terrible for your overall health. High insulin levels are associated with many health problems. There are better ways of eating and healthier alternatives to these imitators of sugar.
We can show you what foods to avoid, and what to eat in place of them!
