Nutrition Note Day 12: Sugar 101. Sugar is a carbohydrate, and it’s found naturally in fruits, vegetables and milk. During the digestive process, all carbohydrates are broken down into a simple sugar called glucose, which our bodies then use for energy. So, sugar isn’t inherently bad – it’s actually essential to human life! The problem lies in society’s addiction to sugar, and the fact that it’s an ingredient in most processed foods and beverages. Excess sugar can lead to weight gain, insulin resistance, and systemic inflammation. During this challenge, one of our goals is to break you free from sugar cravings. To accomplish this, avoid all dairy and added sugar, and eat fruit in moderation. If you need a treat, go for 85% (or higher) dark chocolate and a handful of berries. If you’re really in a pinch and need to eat some sort of processed snack, choose one with less than 5g sugar per serving. And, if you haven’t watch this Jack LaLanne video on Sugarholics, do yourself a favor and watch it. It’s one of our favorites.
