Having a Healthier diet Part 2( Sugar and you!)

3 May

Ok so I want to start off by saying this from the jump my next post will be about body image, weight and women because we as women can be soooooo ugly to one another. Anyway that will come up another time, right now I want to focus on the consumption of sugar and how it affects our weight/health.

Ok so if you have a sweet tooth and you know it raise your hand *clap clap*, if you have a sweet tooth and you know it raise your hand *clap clap*. Ok so I have both hands and feet raised at this point because I have an extremely bad case of having a sweet tooth or sweet mouth sweet teeth whatever you want to call it. Anyway, I know someone out there may be asking, “what’s so bad about sugar?” Or something along those lines right. Well here’s the thing there isn’t anything wrong with sugar. It’s great for making yummy desserts and treats but the problem comes when we use 4cups of sugar in one of our yummy desserts and then we try to eat said yummy dessert by ourselves.

For example, if you make a chocolate cake today and you are the only person in the house that cake should not be finished in two days. In fact, if you finish the cake before it goes bad you should reevaluate some things. The only reason I’m saying this is because chances are, that cake isn’t the only sugary thing you’ve had today….think about it…that iced white chocolate mocha coffee with the danish this morning for breakfast, the cereal bar for lunch with a lipton iced tea cause you’re “watching your weight” then your afternoon snack is a slice of chocolate cake that covers half of the plate…..yes you are certainly watching your weight……watching it grow exponentially. So although it may see that one slice of cake you have a day is harmless, keep in mind how much sugar is in all the other food you are eating and the drinks you have.

Keep in mind, there are different names for sugar. Some names are sucrose, fructose, dextrose, maltose, high fructose corn syrup, just to name a few! There are lots of different types of sugar so do your research!

Well, that’s all for now love bugs!
Stay sweet,
KL
