The Real Difference Between Natural and Added Sugars Will Blow Your Mind (VIDEO)


Unless you already track your sugar intake and know exactly what types and how much sugar you consume, I bet you eat far more tablespoons of sugar per day than you think! Food manufacturers are sneaky and add in sugars for foods like orange juice and ketchup.

Some people may be surprised to learn just how much sugar they’re consuming, and it’s time they wake up! Refined sugar, white sugar, and high fructose corn syrup are not items to be eaten lightly. Added sugars likes these have been linked to heart problems, weight gain, leptin resistance, cancer, and addiction. The problem stems from our modern diet that relies so much on a demand for packaged, processed foods that can be eaten quickly and maintain a long shelf life. These products are often packed with way too much sugar.

Are you ready to see the truth? This video breaks down the difference between natural and added sugars.

Sugar in whole fruit is not the problem, unless it's dried fruit which is very concentrated. The problem comes when you strip the fruit of its fiber. Fruit, with its fiber, slows down the digestion and doesn't cause such a rise in blood sugar that drinking juice or other sugar-laden food and drinks do.

I'm currently a sugar free vegan as I gave up sugar for lent and it's a nightmare trying to buy any kind of ready made food pretty much everything has sugar added into it.
