Why is sugar bad for you slideshow

  1. 1. Why is Sugar Bad For You? Even The Chinese Have Known That Sugar Is Bad For You For Over 1000 Years
  2. 2. FACT: Sugar causes diabetes, obesity, heart disease, premature aging, oxidative stress and degenerative diseases
  3. 3. FACT: Consuming a diet high in carbs, (read, "sugar") makes the cells of your body send out hunger signals and tends to trigger excessive eating habits. And hence the reason why the more processed foods you eat, like doughnuts, crackers, pasta and many others, the more you crave them.
  4. 4. FACT: Eating whole, unprocessed, "one-ingredient," foods reduces your tendency to over eat calories.
  5. 5. FACT: Our body prefers to use FAT as it's primary fuel source, NOT carbs.
  6. 6. FACT: Eating too much of anything, even no- carb foods like eggs, beef or chicken will result in higher blood sugar, weight-gain and other sugar-related diseases. Watch your portion sizes!
  7. 7. Sugar And Diseases Author William Dufty wrote in his 1975 book, "Sugar Blues," that there is a strong correlation between sugar and many diseases.
  8. 8. Sugar And Diseases We all know about diabetes, but excessive sugar consumption also puts you at risk of both cancer and psychosis. Dufty points out in his book that the proliferation of insane asylums coincided with the availability of cheap sugar.
  9. 9. Sugar And Diseases He also points to a study that showed one country that had the highest sugar intake-per capita of sugar and also the highest cancer rates in the world.
  10. 10. Sugar And Addiction Dr. David Reuben, in his book, "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Nutrition," compares the sugar molecule to that of cocaine. (It's no wonder it's addictive, but we'll get to that in a later video)
  11. 11. Chinese Medicine In the year 752 (that's right, over a millennia ago), Chinese medical practitioner Wang Shou wrote about diabetes in his book, "A Collection of Diseases."
  12. 12. Not Just Diabetes When we say that sugar is bad for you, we're not just talking about diabetes.
  13. 13. Not Just Diabetes We are talking about obesity, cancer, psychosis, dementia, heart disease, skin disorders and yeast infections --- just to name a few. Sugar is making us sick and killing us.
  14. 14. Foods That Contain Sugar When we use the term, "sugar," we are not just talking about plain old white table sugar that you put in your coffee.
  15. 15. Foods That Contain Sugar Yup, despite the Food Pyramid fiction that we've been subscribing to, fruits and grains contain sugar and are bad for you.
  16. 16. Foods That Contain Sugar It doesn't matter very much what the fiber content is (although the fiber does slightly reduce the sugar-per serving), just the overall percentage of calories that are sugar.
  17. 17. Foods That Contain Sugar We'll show in a later video how to calculate the percentage of carbs in your food.
  18. 18. Foods That Contain Sugar Other foods that contain sugar are, as author Tim Ferriss in his Slow-Carb Diet puts it, "anything that's white or might be white."
  19. 19. Foods That Contain Sugar With the exception of cauliflower (Duh!), it's generally a good idea to avoid or reduce your intake of these foods:
  20. 20. Foods That Contain Sugar ●Sugar (obviously all junk foods like candy, donuts, crackers, cookies, chips, ice cream, sweetened yogurts, fruits) ●Breads and Pastas and Cereals (even whole grain) ●Rice ●Potatoes
  21. 21. Do We Even Need Sugar? The conventional wisdom is that we need carbohydrates (read: "sugar") in our diet. The fact is, our bodies prefer to burn fat as it's primary fuel source.
  22. 22. Your Takeaway From This Video ●Sugar Causes Many Diseases ●Sugar Is In a Lot More Foods Than You Realize ●We Don't Need Sugar or Carbs In Our Diets ●Watch Your Portion Sizes
