The #1 Worst Carb Ever (Don’t Eat This)By Coach Josh Under General Health Tips, Nutrition Tips
Interesting video wasn’t it?
Let’s face it… excess sugar is a tasty, disease-causing, toxic “treat”.
The American Heart Association recently came out with a “warning” to Americans, published in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association. Lead author Rachel K. Johnson, Ph.D.,M.P.H., R.D., professor of nutrition at the University of Vermont in Burlington, concluded that:
High intake of added sugars is implicated in numerous poor health conditions, including obesity, high blood pressure, and other risk factors for heart disease and stroke.
1. Added sugars and solid fats in food, as well as alcoholic beverages, are categorized as “discretionary calories” and should be eaten sparingly.
2. Most American women should consume no more than 100 calories (25 grams) of added sugars per day; most men, no more than 150 calories (37.5 grams).
3. Soft drinks and other sugar-sweetened beverages are the number-one source of added sugars in the American diet.
How much sugar is okay? With new research, like the study I just mentioned by the AHA as my reference point, and to make it simple, I recommend that men, women, and children who are interested in losing belly fat get no more than 30 grams of sugar a day (this includes natural sources from milk, fruits, and vegetables, too).
This isn’t a lot of sugar when you consider that the average soft drink contains a whopping 40 grams of the stuff. That’s more than the amount of sugar that one should have in an entire day right there.
Cut down on the sugar and replace those empty calories with nutrient-dense vegetables and organic meats for a flat belly.
Best of health!
P.S. Speaking of losing fat, research shows that eating a very specific type of fat can actually help you burn MORE body fat every day:
In fact, one study showed that by simply eating this one odd fat a group of 180 overweight men and women lost 9% of their total body fat WITHOUT any other dietary or exercise changes.
