Sugar Your Life Away

Sugar is one of the biggest causes of ageing.

Sugar is one of the biggest causes of weight gain and ageing, the next is the fats and oils that we all use daily, either our own use or through the over-consumption of pre-packaged or junk foods.

It is the problems that the consumption of sugar causes that are shortening the life expectancy of a vast number of people in the Western world.

N.B. It is now being stated that our younger generations life expectancy rates are reducing, in other words they will be living shorter years than their predecessors (parents and grandparents). Overconsumption of Sugar is on the top of list for this unwanted effect to our siblings!

The table below reveals some of the alternate terms/names for sugar:

Sugar Aliases.

 Dextrose – Fructose – Glucose – Maltose – Sucrose

Maltodextrin (dextrin) – Brown Rice Syrup

Cane Sugar – Molasses – Corn Sweetener

Corn Syrup – Cane Juice – Fruit Juice Concentrates

Barley Malt – Caramel – Ethyl Maltol – Panocha

 Note: Ingredients that contain any of the above words (names) can be considered a sugar product as well.

 

Excessive sugar consumption causes insulin resistance which in turn causes diabetes.

Diabetes, apart from having a restricting affect on a person's lifestyle can also reduce life expectancy and bring with it many other health problems such as loss of eyesight, heart disease and arterial problems amongst other things.

Obviously these problems are going to reduce life expectancy so the need to reduce the consumption of refined sugars that are found in low value foods such as breads, cakes, biscuits, sweets and other such products is necessary.

When you consume excessive amounts of sugar the body stores the extra as fat and the weight gain that this causes places more demands on the organs of the body.

Many products are labelled as sugar free but they contain sweeteners such as aspartame, saccharin and sucralose and these ingredients when included in any of the products you buy will still cause problems with the burden they will place on the liver thereby accelerating the aging process.

Another problem that sugar causes due to the process whereby the glucose binds to other proteins rendering them less flexible is with the wrinkling of the skin.

Yes, most people don't realize that sugar consumption will make their skin wrinkle faster as the process of glycosylation affects the collagen. Not only will it affect the collagen in the skin, it will also affect anywhere else in the body where there is collagen and that includes the arteries, lungs and tendons.

 The affect that it has by making the arteries less flexible is increased hypertension and all of the problems that are associated with that health problem.

Along with Sugar being a major problem, the next health problem is the use of Fats and Oils!

7 Handy Tips

         To Stopping Your Sugar Cravings.

Sugar cravings are difficult to ignore. What is worse is that sugary treats are so easily available everywhere which makes it harder to ignore your craving. If you’re always craving for sugary snacks, you are not alone. Eating lots of simple carbohydrates i.e. sugar may only give your body a short-term energy boost, but they will always leave hungry and craving for more. So here a few tips to stop your body for craving for more sugar.

  1. Replace it with fruits. Keep fruits around when sugar cravings hit. Fruits are naturally sweet and full of fiber and nutrients. Bring fruits to your work or and fill up your kitchen with fruits such as apples and pears. Those are easy to eat instead of fruits that require you to peel.
  2. Go for a walk. When you get a sugar craving, get out of the house and go for a walk. If you are at work, take a rest from your work, and walk about for 10 minutes. This will take your mind off the food. 
  3. Eat regularly. If you don’t have three square meals a day, you may be craving for sugar because your body is low on sugar. So accompany your fruits with nuts, seed and dried fruits. These are protein and fiber rich food. For your three regular meals, increase your protein intake. Add an egg in the morning for your breakfast. 
  4. Remove temptations. Go through your refrigerator and get rid of all the sugary treats. When you go grocery shopping, make a list of the things that you have to buy and stick to the list. After you are done, pay for it immediately instead of lingering around the sweets section. 
  5. Read labels. Before you start buying food, be sure to read the label. Start being aware of content of the food that you purchased. Being aware of sugar contents can help you avoid high sugar food.
  6. Improve your diet. Eat more protein and fat. A well-balanced meal will do your body good. Have small frequent meals to keep your blood sugar level stable. Take a daily multivitamin. This will help keep blood sugar stable.  
  7. Lastly, if you really do have to satisfy your sugar cravings, go for quality instead of quantity. Eat a small piece of dark chocolate instead of candy bar. This treat will be more satisfying for you.

                   Not Your Everyday Sweetener

Sweeteners can be used to “liven” up our food and give us the sugar fix we’re looking for without actually having sugar.

Raise your hand if you have a sweet tooth?

Oh c’mon, I know you do. LOL.

My hand definitely shoots right up. I love sugar in its fullest, from cereals to candy and chewing gum, I pass my daily dosage of sugar early in the morning. Why is it we love sugar so much? Our taste buds are so accustomed to the sweet tastes that we drop on them all the time that regular food is downright boring to the palate. We owe much of this to our excessive sugar intake, but we can do something to curb and, maybe even, replace the extra intake of sugar. There are plenty of sugar substitutes that can help bring us a healthier and more balanced diet.

Sweeteners can be used to “liven” up our food and give us the sugar fix we’re looking for without actually having sugar. In the past, artificial sweeteners have been the main source to use as sugar substitutes, but many have not been able to mimic the taste of sugar. These artificial sweeteners cannot be used for baking and do not have the same feel or texture as sugar. For that and many other reasons, we quickly give into our sugar cravings and go back to the real thing. The most commonly used sweeteners are saccharin and aspartame. These have been “sufficient” for many people, but we continue to seek for better alternatives that taste just like our sugar friend.

Xylitol is a naturally occurring substitute that many people do not know about. It looks and tastes just like sugar but doesn’t carry the unhealthy side effects such as tooth decay and cavities that come from excessive amounts of sugar. It’s healthier for us and is an easier way for us to cut back on calories and will help satiate the sugar cravings we all get. Xylitol can be used to bake all your favorite foods and is in crystalline form just how we are used to sugar.

Sugar is a huge part of many of our lives but causes problems when eaten too much. Diabetes in kids is a growing problem and is partly due to eating too many sugary foods and a lack of exercise. Weight gain among children and adults can be attributed to sugary and fatty foods. Sugar poses a problem for all, but if consumed in proper doses, then it is not bad for us at all.

Other than Xylitol, there are many other natural sweeteners we can turn to that will give us the sugar we need. Honey, fruit juices, maple syrup, and fructose are other alternatives that many use to substitute for regular sugar. Natural sweeteners are a healthy alternative to regular sugar. Remember that consumption is the key. Any food, including sugar, consumed in moderate amounts is not harmful.

So it’s up to each person to take care of their body and watch the amounts of sugar eaten. Sugar is in most foods and that’s why we like to eat so much.

We can be responsible in the amount of sugar that we consume and have artificial or natural sweeteners if desired.

 

Acidic Versus Alkaline Diet

What is the theory behind an alkaline diet?

The idea is that certain foods, namely wheat products, refined sugar, meats, and processed foods will produce acid in your body, which is supposedly bad for your system. If you instead eat foods that are “basic” or “alkaline” in nature, the body will lose weight and you will generally feel better.  

Basic Science In Your Body

Your body has a pH of between 7.35 and 7.45, which is slightly alkalinic. A pH of 7 is considered neutral. Our bodies fight to keep the pH within this range by changing our respirations and by using the kidneys’ filtering processes to hold onto bicarbonate or excrete it so that your body can stay within the alkaline range. The idea is that when the body eats too many acidic foods, it makes the kidneys have to work harder to keep the pH in the alkaline range.

The problem with the alkaline diet is that it really can’t change the pH of your body very much. You can eat all the acidic foods or all the alkaline foods you want, and the body will be able to compensate for the dietary change.

Perhaps the reason why the alkaline diet helps you lose weight is that alkaline foods are often naturally low in calories and fat. It may be a mere coincidence that by eating alkaline foods, you eat more fruits and vegetables, plenty of water, and avoid calorie-containing sugar, processed foods, and alcohol. This will naturally improve your weight, energy levels, and health, regardless of the actual pH of the foods you take in.    

Acid Foods

Acid containing foods include things like cheese, meat, bread and processed foods can cause uric acid kidney stones. By eating alkaline foods, you can improve brain function, lessen pain in your low back, decrease your risk of colon cancer, and maximize your heart health. Muscles and bones remain strong on an alkaline diet.

Is there scientific proof that these things really are connected to eating alkaline foods rather than acidic foods? Not really. 

Alkaline Foods

If you are still thinking that trying an alkaline diet can’t hurt, go out, and make sure that your kitchen is filled with fruits and vegetables, tofu, nuts, soybeans, seeds, and legumes. These promote an alkaline bloodstream, so you can eat as many of these as you want on your alkaline diet.

Foods to avoid are prepackaged foods, dairy products, meat, grains, canned foods, and eggs. These tend to be more acidic and should not be consumed on an alkaline diet. Caffeine and alcohol are acidic as well, so you should avoid these as much as possible.  

Does It Work?

Of course, if you cut out processed foods, sugar, meats, and dairy products and instead eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, there is a good chance that you will lose weight. The actual pH of the foods or what it does to the body (turning it alkalinic or acidic) may have nothing to do with the effectiveness of eating these kinds of foods.

On any diet, it is recommended that you exercise regularly so this, too, can help you lose weight.

The biggest change in eating an alkaline versus an acidic diet is that now you will be eating a vegetarian diet and exercising more—all things that promote good health and a loss of weight. Is this a good thing? Of course it is. Eating natural whole food that is low in calories and fat will promote a healthy weight and good health. 

An alkaline diet is, for the most part, gluten free, so that it is a good diet to adopt if you have gluten intolerance
