Sugar, is it worth it?
Posted On May 7, 2020
Sweeteners, however low in calories have no health benefits whatsoever. First, the brain has neurons and smartness to detect that you are cheating it, so you will crave and consume more calories than you have saved. Second, side effects can be a dull thyroid, memory loss to cancer.
Obesity is not a result of eating sugar from the sugar cane, but a result of lifestyle. Inactivity; TV, Video games, processed food, irregular meal times, etc. promote sedentary lifestyle, which causes obesity. Activity; a combination of weight training and cardio with good nutrition will help you fight disease. So yes, it’s worth having it without going crazy. Recommended amounts by the World Health Organization (WHO) and American Heart Association (AHA) is 5% of your daily calorie intake. That’s about 9 tsp for men and 6 tsp for women. United States Federal Drug Administration (USFDA) recommends 10% so that’s double of WHO/AHA, but then do you really wan to follow FDA guidelines?
Some benefits of sugar cane:
- Enables your body to be in positive nitrogen balance, so your body doesn’t use muscle to produce energy.
- Provides fiber, minerals and vitamin B, which keeps the digestive system strong.
- Contains glycolic acid, which if applied to skin prevents damage.
- Diabetics use it to recover from a hypoglycemic attacks. So does sugar cause diabetes or diaobesity?
Honey is it better or worse?
It has its’ own place, use it in the morning in warm water with lemon to kick start your digestion and provide warmth. Have it raw for colds, soar throats. It is even used on wounds for healing. Honey should never be heated or cooked, this is against Ayurveda beliefs.
