Sugar and Your Metabolism


“If we are creating ourselves all the time, then it is never too late to begin creating the bodies we want instead of the ones we mistakenly assume we are stuck with.”
Deepak Chopra

Sugar is primary and quick source of energy. Sugar is a carbohydrate and the absence of it is the most powerful trigger to fat burning

The average American consumes 12 teaspoons of sugar a day. It is equal to two tons of sugar during a lifetime. The more you eat sugar the more you'll crave and ultimately the more you'll need to eat to get those same pleasurable feelings. This sugar addiction can actually re-wire your brain, not to mention make you very sick. Of all the molecules capable of inflicting damage in your body, sugar molecules are probably the most damaging.

Keep in mind that while it's perfectly normal for your blood sugar levels to rise slightly after every meal, it is not natural or healthy when your blood sugar levels become excessively elevated and stay that way, which is exactly what will happen if you're eating like the typical American, who consumes on average a staggering 2.5 pounds of sugar a week!

And when you add in other low-quality carbohydrate-rich foods such as white bread, sugar, pasta, pastries, cookies, and candy, which also break down to sugar (starch is broken down into glucose) in your body and often contain added sugar as well, it's not so difficult to see why so many Americans are in such poor health.

Sugar is the form of energy your body is designed to run on. Every cell in your body uses sugar for energy, and it's metabolized in every organ of your body; about 20 percent of glucose is metabolized in your liver. Sugar is the most important factor impacting your metabolism. The body will ALWAYS choose sugar as a preferred fuel over fat. This means; in order to burn fat, you can’t have any sugar in the diet.

We are not designed to eat strait or refined sugar and burn energy quick. We are designed to release energy slowly. When you eat sugar you get a little spike of energy and then go down fast and you store sugar as fat. You bypass the liver ability to digest food by doing that. Any time you bypass the process you have consequences; your sugar will be converted into fat.
