🍩 🙅 This is probably the most important, but also painful topic for many people. Sugar is your enemy. It is an enemy for your waist, at least. Why people are fatter nowadays (no offense, but fat is just a word that defines… well, fat. If you have more of it, then you fatter, then somebody who has less of it. Simple), then they used to be? Yes, less physical activity, but researches show that consuming sugar is the biggest factor here. If you have enough willpower to eliminate most of the sugar from your diet, you will be slimmer and healthier in no time! Yes, healthier too, because sugar is not good for your liver, might cause diabetes and even cancer. For people who is interested in more details, you can take a look at this article here, which is one of MANY examples of how bad sugar can be.
Now, now, did you start crying already? There is some good news too – of course, you can have some sugar *pat on a shoulder*. If you really want a candy or a chocolate bar, have it during the first half of the day. The earlier, the better and try to never eat sugar after 4 p.m. That is when our body normally start to store sugars, instead of burning it. However, you still can’t have a lot, because sugar is added almost in EVERY thing that you can buy at the store: souses, canned goods, fruit juices and even some of cooked meats. Unless you cook everything from a scratch at home, you will never be free of sugar, so you need to consume sweets as little, as possible. By the way, consider not to eat any of those sugar containing meals for dinners too! And yes, you heard it before, but I will repeat: soda, like Coke or Fanta are the worst! I really would recommend to eliminate this products from your diet FOR-EV-AH. I am serious. Pure liquid sugar – is doesn’t hydrate and leaves a nasty aftertaste in your mouth. Get a sizzling water instead!
Okay, now some of you might have dry your tears and tell me with a smile, that there are “zero sugar drinks!” or diet Coke…. No! NO, NO, NO, and NO one more time! It is even worse!!! Why you think it is sweet? Not because it is so healthy and doesn’t have any sugar. It doesn’t contain a real sugar, it contains chemical substitute – aspartame, which your body does not recognize. What does it mean? It cannot make anything useful of it, so it just stores those chemicals in your body as fat and increase your risk to get diabetes and cancer in times! There are more harm to it, so if you are interested, you can read this article. Read until the end though! (P.s. I love Nerd Fitness. I am part of Nerd Fitness Academy myself.)
Conclusion: real sugar in smallest amounts and only before 4 p.m. is your best bet, if you can’t stop consuming sugar whatsoever. However, stop drinking soda, even diet or zero calories one, because it is terrible for you. Just terrible. Period.🙅🍩
