Low sugar foods

low sugar

Why sugar is so bad for our organism? Simple, it has no nutrients!

Sugar can be found almost in every common aliment, it can be found in pines butter, ketchup, baked bens and you should carefully read the labels when you go to the store. Sugar can be found in many forms I in the labels and it has many names: glucose, fructose, dextrose, maltose and it contains nothing useful but calories. Unfortunately the body need sugar to function and I’m talking about glucose, which is the result of chemical transformation of sugar by insulin , and the brain can’t survive without it. Too much sugar can lead to diabetes that is a spread disease this days so we should get as many foods low in sugar as we can. Aliments rich in sugar can be found in any store, starting from the common candy, white bread, even in milk that contains the lactose.

Indeed when we eat a sugar based aliment we fell like we have energy, but that’s only for the moment, Because our body uses sugar to get that kind of quick energy, the problem is that when we are consuming excess sugar we get spikes of energy and then really low peek falls and we will feel exhausted, tired and this makes you go for the sugar again. Recent studies shown that we shouldn’t eat more than 10 table spoons a day of sugar, and probably that’s not going to happened because all the aliments that we are consuming a high doze of simple sugar or sugar derivatives For example if you eat a meal with fries and ketchup an 2 slices of bread you will get an approximate of 13 table spoons, and that is what you get from a single meal like that.

High levels of sugar leads to high level of GI witch is glycemic index, normally set to 100. Based on this, we have 3 kinds of aliments : low GI foods (55 and under ), medium GI foods(56 to 69), high GI index (70 and over ).

Low GI foods or low sugar foods category contains food like apples that is actually really healthy and helps us in many ways also like the antioxidants from their composition. For instance: skin milk, yogurt, sweet potatoes, oat bread, precooked rise, lentil, baked bens (kidney bens), oranges, plums.

There are some other foods that are at the limit low-medium GI that should be carefully consumed like bananas, pineapples, brown rise, cous-cous.

So if you want to get a good diet, with low sugar aliments you should pay attention at what you are eating, and as an advice, try to eat as much low sugar foods like fruits as you can and I refer to apples, oranges, limes that have many good qualities, enzymes, antioxidants.

Don’t think that just because they have sugar ,even at a lower level it’s a bad choice, because is wrong. Start replacing high GI foods with low GI foods, sure at first you will have cravings, but in time you will lose them and you will fell much healthy and your life will start improving day by day.
