Mythbuster: is Sugar da devil?

April 2, 2020

Sugar? The Devil?

Calm down, Bobby Boucher.

Sugar is very easy to demonize. People say it causes obesity, or it's the sole reason you can’t lose weight. Yada Yada Yada.

The reason sugar sucks is because it is so easy to consume a TON of it and not feel full.

The sugar that absolutely sucks, the one that we have all heard of, is the high fructose corn syrup.

This stuff is so processed and so broken down that it takes no effort by your body to break it down for use.

"So sugar is da devil?"

No Bobby.

Not all sugar is bad.

One source of sugar is fruit.

Fruit is incredible for you and SHOULD NOT be avoided because of the sugar content.

Wait, what?

What gets lost in the conversation when it comes to sugar is what else is included in the food you are eating.

Fruit is an amazing source of FIBER.

Fiber is like a snow plow for your digestive system. It picks up a ton of stuff along your GI tract. But because of this, it slows down digestion.

When the digestion is slow, you feel more full.

It would be easy to say "just don’t eat sugar." But that clearly is missing a lot of context.

Avoid the added sugars and all the processed types, but don’t fear fruit 🍏🍎🍉🍑🍅🍒🍌
