Hi there! I'm Luma from Argentina, and I just started to use this app. I started this year with a new goal I'm trying to live without sugar for at least one month. I've read that sugar is extremely dangerous for our body, and that people will be more healthy if they keep away it from their life. So it's what I'm doing, to see if that works. And I've lost 4 pounds!. Now what I want to do is to challenge those who are reading this, to see how much you can improve your body. And if you want, you can share information and good vibes with me, because I know sometimes it's not easy by your own. Having said that I wish you a great day, bye
I have cut out sugar in my coffee. There are so many foods that contain sugar it's hard but I'm giving it a try this month too.
He is right so much food is processed and has hidden sugars. Sugar also changes its name such as fructose, corn syrup, etc.. And definitely stay away from artifical stuff. I am really trying to do some clean eating and its hard, but it can be done.
I did no sugar for 6 months last year and lost 40 pounds. One month should not be that hard.
In vegetables as well.
That's where the sugars come from.
So... What is the point of avoiding sugars?
And what happens?
Does anybody knows what is (s)he doing by avoiding the sugars?
Or it done for sale of avoiding sugars?
Eat wisely and avoid sugar is not same.
Avoiding sugars does not = eating wisely.
Eating wisely = eating all king of different ingredients at reasonable amount. (Sugar included)
So far... No answer, anyone could bring on the "table".
Alex I believe what they're talking about is simple sugars. Found in processed foods, the sugar that is in fruits and veggies your body can easily break down and use as energy.
Problem is that nobody gives any answer for the question "why should you avoid sugar?" And those nutritionists... Oh dear.
Kristen, you have great idea of their talk.
I'm afraid that they don't know the topic itself.
I'm Both - curious and testing.
In my opinion, people should do things, they are aware of.
For example, - your table sugar thing.
Your body is sweet enough already, and therefore it is accumulating sugar as fat.
Do you understand how human get their fat?
I'll tell you the story, which in Estonia (Yep, that's where i'm from) is known by everybody, who finished 6th grade in the school. "how the fats are getting into human body?"
Here we go.
Your body is liking sugar, since it is highest energy food available.
Leftovers of the energy are always accumulated in human body as fat. (This is most efficient way to store the enery. Beside, it is protecting you from cold and minor injuries).
But, since, not everybody will react in the same way (yes, we are different), there are varieties of the consequences of absorbing sugar.
And believe me - some really need it.
Conclusion: You should measure your blood sugar level and speak with your doctor in general. It may come out that you're doing absolutely nonsense work (avoiding sugars).
Anyway, to be fair, avoiding sugar is not bad at all, but might be just useless activity. (Unless you get it in extra large amounts. And yes, we do make jokes of americans on that matter.)
So did you workout as well or just laid off the sugar in obvious things like candy, cupcakes?
Good luck with that honey. Lol
