Sugar consumption is an interesting topic worldwide, full of misconceptions, beliefs. Industries now try to sell other products which are switching you from sugar to much worse like artificial sweateners.
The “Whole food industry” is a religion too and vegetarianism both, with other ones. But no arguement here, it is your choices to eat what you want. And if you feel good it is ok, but later after years you may have defficiency problems. You don’t need to follow groups, just your body and lifestyle. Common sense is very non-existent in people these days. Sugar is NEEDED to function properly but the method and amount is the problem.
I’m a perfect example here, I’m in my early 30’s being tall, lean but muscular type man in genetics. I’m eating sugary stuffs since my early childhood and never ever had a serious problem with it. If I take into consideration that I should eat it in not massive amounts (lol well many times it is hard to not do it, I admit). Keep balance yeah.
My brain and metabolism using it up as fast as it can, so no real big problems. It is sometimes bad if I make wrong choices and grabbing it too often from the shop’s selves. Maybe I have just some little issues about it like a little brain fog, that’s all, I can deal it. It is up to me to change my diet to a degree that I eat more protein and less sugar. I don’t take it so seriously.
Choices are up to you, what to eat. Also life style in the end. Somebody with active lifestyle will need more protein.
What other’s are telling You what is GOOD for you – totally wrong!
Never try to follow other people’s meal plans and diet. You need to experiment with the food combinations and what is good for your body and metabolism. Certain people can’t digest certain types of foods. But you can try out what is better for you. Those advices are just for try some aspects and if it works, use it.
Be aware with allergies and “no foods” because chances are, you are being indoctrinated. In what? To believe that certain foods are bad for you. Beliefs are very strong reality changing tools starting with your body!
If you crave on sugar and being lazy like me, chances are you don’t take in enough protein for your energy levels daytime. Muscles can’t stay strong and for your brain being in balance and not in tiredness. You can consume sugar and eat it in balance with other stuffs. I won’t say you, DON’T consume sugar, it is not fair. You can eat it, but in moderation.
Our body is very adaptable and can handle it. But by the time you will lose minerals like Vitamine B’s, Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamine C and some more. You should eat wisely and considering your body’s lifestyle. Fat is the leasts needed one, we are not in the wild, hunting for prey and storing up fat in our body to survive winters. Protein with vegetables is the best many times, japanese people have the best recipe for the body.
Useful fats are needed like butter, Olive Oil, Cononut Oil and similars. Don’t cling on Omega 3. You need a good ratio of Omega 6 : Omega 3 = 2:1 or 3:1 and that’s all. Nobody tells you this ratio, mainstream only hungs up on Omega 3. And don’t take it seriously like measuring it daily for your intake, just don’t do it. Just eat it if you want to. Eat wisely, don’t overdo it.
The importance of water
I found out that if I try to drink more water while I’m eating chocolates (some swallows), it can cause a little delay on releasing sugar into my blood vessels. It is a personal observation but it can help you.
Water is very important, especially pure mineral water. Now I don’t recommend anything other than some mineral spring water, which doesn’t contain fluoride and chloride, but have magnesium, calcium and potassium for your muscles, brain, bones etc. You can still use tap water for washing your teeth or rinse a few times, wash hands but it is unsafe in many countries. It can be full of chemicals, byproducts from washing it back like hormones and drug residues. I guess we can count up almost every countries for unsafe tap water. You have only control over tap water if you filter it by yourself with knowledge.
There is a myth, people in my country used to say. “You should rotate your brands” of mineral water because of some strange build-up theory of minerals… ah comeon! This is just BS again. I know my body uses up what I take in, you can’t overload them. Until you are making personal powder or capsule intakes more often and too much for months. If you consume sugary stuffs, you can be sure, some mineral levels are less than normal, don’t worry. Otherwise, rather protein intake is low.
How to rather use up Sugar the Smart way?
Exercising almost daily is needed to maintain balance in your muscles and blood flow to various parts of your body, especially to your brain. You won’t die of course being just in a sitting job or sitting at home. I know I’m lazy like hell, but I can take a run for some kilometers nearby. Or just ride my bike, take dumbbell exercises at home, whenever it is needed.
It is better to use up plant sugar (fruits) or just sugary stuffs after workout or jogging. You muscles are weak at that point, use it with protein to regain damaged muscles tissues and store glycogen in it. Eat vegetables with protein, again. Sugar will give back the energy.
Daytime? Use sugar rather at the middle of the day. In the mornings you need protein after sleep, and sugar is the less wanted thing before bedtime. It will accumulate as fat and your brain may have a bad bedtime over night without restfull sleep.
Sugar also releases happiness “hormone”. It causes you to feel good after ate some bars. But you can feel yourself weak and hungry if you don’t eat nothing else. Same for breads and baked goods without any value of nutrition. Hunger comes from lack of protein again.
You can mix it with protein once again and try to maintain a balanced diet. You can eat crap too like fast food but in minimal amounts. Those chemicals are stored in your body and need time to clean out. Vitamine C is a good thing to use, it cleans you out used with minerals or with protein. But never mix sugar with Vitamine C! You don’t want kidney problems or may not but it is just stupid.
You can read about dosing Vitamine C here.
Sugar is bad if…
Well if you are only eating sugar all day long. Or if you THINK it is bad and you fueled this thought for a long time. If you have certain health issues like diabetes, I have a story here, to see it is caused by yourself (mostly!). I knew a man who has it BUT he can eat sugar, chocolate, sweets! I made him believe (ok, tried to liberate his mind) he has no problems at all. And he can consume it in little amounts of course. but his problem is caused by himself.
He thinks he doesn’t worth his life and he had bad relationships with women. He is just torturing himself directly and he also knows it, and doesn’t want to change his mindset. A certain view of his reality in this life causes the trouble. Well that is his life, if he wish it, it can be reality. So the actual end result is generated over years in the pancreas.
Old people can have diabetes too, full of life problems mentally and beliefs from decades ago. Now imagine how hard is to cure them… They can only rely on specialists like “doctors” and can’t help themselves – well why should they if they are as brainwashed and as “intelligent” as their parents from the last century. They BELIEVE in external help and what is said in TV. To support the elderly circle, there are highly intelligent people too, I don’t want to label them, I know some personally too.
Don’t listen to others! WHO knows what is good for you? Only you know that. If you don’t know, you should closely observe your thoughts about certain things in your life. How do you feel about them? Change that belief and experiment with it.
Finally, don’t be afraid of sugar, it is spreaded widely how it is bad or your body is in trouble from it. Use it in balance with real foods and don’t overconsume it. That’s all.
If you think you can’t eat sugar because it is harmful, now that is a belief construct, which you gave power and became your reality. You can reverse it! If you decline sugar in your life – meaning the sweatness (not just this kind of), like watching a movie, it will cause to decline everything which the mainstrain brainwashing tells you. You can enjoy eating a bar of chocolate, do it and don’t feel guilty.
Eat more protein, less fat and less sugar, but don’t just decline them. Your lifestyle also needs it if you are more active in body but if you don’t eat more protein than those, your body will degrade much faster. Your muscles will weaken, lose muscle mass, also your body and brain will suffer.
Sugar doesn’t cause cancer, You are causing it. Not genetics, not sugar. But it can fuel damaged cells and help them spread. Nothing complicated.
It is like going to the doctor to take a pill for certain problems. You can’t heal yourself, forgot it, this way you are going for external help and giving belief to a pill that it will finally heal your problems. Many times it can’t, your belief is weak again. Surprise : ) But sometimes our beliefs are weak and need that pill, well it is an interesting self-programming game.
