Added Sugar is The Single Worst Ingredient in The Diet. Period. Hot

“Did all of a sudden the entire world just become a bunch of gluttons and sloths? All at the same time? I mean, get real.” – Dr. Robert H. Lustig

There are many things wrong with the modern diet… but the massive amounts of added sugar may just be the worst.

Numerous studies show that sugar, more than any other ingredient in the diet, may be driving some of the world’s leading killers… including heart disease, diabetes and even cancer (123).

The video above (hat tip to Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt) – is from ABC’s Catalyst, a popular science program in Australia.

The Low-Fat “Revolution” Gave Sugar a Free Pass

Glass Full Of Sugar Cubes

The first dietary guidelines for Americans were published in 1977, giving birth to the low-fat “revolution.”

At this time, the main public health message was that people needed to eat less saturated fat and cholesterol… that is, less of traditional foods like meat, butter, full-fat dairy and eggs.

Unfortunately, the food industry complied and brought a plethora of low-fat “health foods” to the market.

But removing the fat from foods makes them taste horrible.

That’s why the food industry added a whole bunch of sugar to their foods to compensate for the lack of fat.

Although sugar wasn’t actually endorsed by public health guidelines, the primary emphasis was on reducing saturated fat, essentially distracting people from the stuff that actually matters.

Today, people are eating massive amounts of added sugars, usually without even realizing it.

According to Dr. Stephan Guyenet, in the year 1822 we ate the equivalent of a 12 ounce can of soda every 5 days.

Today, we’re eating the equivalent of a 12 ounce can of soda every 7 hours.

On average, Americans are eating about 22 teaspoons of added sugar per day, or 355calories. This amounts to 70 pounds (32 kg) per year (4).

Keep in mind that these are averages. Young males are eating about a 100 pounds of sugar per year… and many individuals are eating much, much more.

Bottom Line: When the low-fat guidelines first came out, food manufacturers removed the fat from foods but added a whole bunch of sugar instead.

Most People Are Eating MUCH More Sugar Than They Think

The thing is… most people don’t have a clue about how much sugar they’re actually eating.

They’re not pouring 22 teaspoons per day in their coffee or on their breakfast cereal, they’re getting it from conventional foods.

These days, almost every processed food has sugar in it. Just go to the supermarket and look at the labels, you may be surprised… even many so-called “health foods” are loaded with sugar.

Food manufacturers often use confusing terms (like “evaporated cane juice”) for sugar, in order to deceive the consumer and hide the true amount of sugar in their foods.

Even foods that are often considered healthy, like many breakfast cereals and low-fat yogurt, have so much sugar that they’re not much different from a candy bar.

The worst part of it is… sometimes the mainstream health organizations actuallyendorse these seriously unhealthy foods.

For example, the Australian Heart Foundation puts their “Tick” of approval on various high-sugar junk foods like breakfast cereals, low-fat yogurt, breads and others.

How are people supposed to have a chance of eating healthy if the organizations that are in charge of protecting the population’s health are literally advising people to eat this crap?

Bottom Line: People are getting a lot of sugar from conventional foods, without even realizing it. Many of these processed, high-sugar foods are endorsed by health organizations like the Australian Heart Foundation.

Sugar Goes Way Beyond Just Empty Calories

Junk Food

Added sugar can have severe harmful effects on metabolism (5).

The main reason is that it supplies a large amount of fructose, a simple sugar that is metabolized strictly by the liver (6).

In the context of a high-calorie, high-carb Western diet, this is a complete disaster.

The sugar get turned into fat in the liver, leading to insulin resistance and a host of metabolic problems (7).

It is well known that fructose is uniquely efficient at causing the buildup of visceral fat, that is fat that collects in the liver and around the organs (89).

This type of fat is much, much worse than the fat that builds up under the skin. It actively secretes pro-inflammatory hormones into the bloodstream, wreaking havoc on your health (10).

The ability of sugar and refined carbohydrate to induce insulin resistance and increase visceral fat accumulation is now believed to be among the leading drivers of many of the world’s most serious chronic diseases.

It is also known that liquid sugar (as in sugary soft drinks and fruit juices) has a uniquely fattening effect. Liquid sugar calories aren’t “registered” as food by the brain, so we don’t compensate by eating less of other foods instead (1112).

Sugar is terrible… but when consumed in liquid form, it is even worse.

Overall, sugary soft drinks (and fruit juices) are probably the unhealthiest and most fattening aspects of the modern diet, by far.

Keep in mind that this does not apply to whole fruit, which also contain fiber and make people feel full before they can overeat on fructose.

Added Sugar is a Harmful, Disease Promoting Ingredient That Should be Avoided Like The Plague

Of course, there are many things wrong with the modern diet. No one is saying that it’s only sugar.

Refined carbohydrates, seed oils and processed foods in general are also a huge problem, without regards to whether they contain sugar or not.

But there is now overwhelming evidence that sugar is uniquely harmful, perhaps more than any other aspect of the diet.

If you care about your health and want to live a long and disease-free life, then you should avoid added sugar like the plague.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?

By J. Davis III

Category: HEALTH

trackingRecently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.

Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.

Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.

Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.

Here’s how it works...

“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”

“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”

Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.

Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.

“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…

What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?

Mind blown...

Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”

So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
