Reduce Your Refined Sugar Intake – Womens Bootcamp in Maidstone

Refined sugars they are not good for anyone whether you are planning to lose weight or not.  However, when you are trying to lose weight it is critical that you reduce your refined sugar intake.

The key to losing fat is to reduce your fat intake along with your refined sugar.  Back in the 1980s, we were told fat intake was the reason for our bigger waist so “fat free” foods hit the market hard.

These fat free foods claimed to be much better for the waist.  What they didn’t tell us is that they replaced the fat with refined sugar. Refined sugar is a carbohydrate but it is the worst kind imaginable. It not only isn’t good for the waist it is responsible for many other ailments.

If you do nothing else, remove refined sugar from your diet.  The average person consumes over 150 pounds of refined sugar in a year.  That’s incredible.

Refined sugar is very unhealthy.  Not only is it a major contributor to body fat it increases the bad. 6It also suppresses the immune system, depletes the body of needed minerals and growth hormones. It is the cause of many food allergies, and a major contributing factor in hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia.  If that’s not enough, it’s even been associated with the development of some cancers.  Are you ready to get rid of your refined sugar fix now?

So when you see a label that says fat free be sure to read the entire label.  In 99% of the cases, you will find that the fat has been replaced with refined sugar.  Don’t just read the list of ingredients, which might show a low gram weight of sugar.  Read the list of ingredients and note whether the sugar is refined or a sugar substitute such as aspartame, which by the way also has health risks.  You also need to check the carbs to see if they are good carbs or bad carbs.

We all know that eating more calories than your body is using are the main reason for weight gain.  Therefore, it makes sense that you would want to reduce fat intake.  But refined sugar seems to slip through the cracks because it is a single carb, and often not referred to as refined sugar but rather as a carbohydrate, which is much easier to ignore.

Refined sugar has no nutritional value, no vitamins, and no minerals, no anything other than a bunch of empty calories.  Because refined sugar is so processed, a lot of calories can get packed into a very small serving.  In fact, the small the particle size of the food item the higher the calorie count and the faster it is absorbed by the body.  You will not lose a single pound unless you watch your refined sugars.

Let’s say you’ve done all the right things.  You’ve increased your activity level, reduced your daily calorie intake, and yet after a few weeks there seems to be little change.  By now, you’re becoming very frustrated.  Now’s the time to have a look at your carb, intake and I’ll bet you’ll very quickly discover that many of the carbs you’ve been consuming have refined sugar in them.

So even though you’ve reduced your caloric intake, the refined sugar calories are absorbed so quickly that your fat cells are actually growing rather than shrinking.  It’s a common and easy mistake to make.

So remember complex carbs combined with good simple carbs such as fruit + protein + minimum fat intake + a high level of exercise = weight loss.  Are you ready to shed those pounds?
