This is an interesting topic and worldwide, full of misconceptions, beliefs and groups, who try to sell other products which are switching you from sugar to much worse like artificial sweateners.
Whole food industry is a religion too and vegetarianism both, with other ones. But no arguement here, it is your choices 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.
I’m a perfect example here. I’m almost 31 years old, 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).
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, but maybe I have just some little issue about it like a little brain fog, that’s all, I can accept it. It is up to me to change my diet to a degree that I eat more protein and not more sugar. I don’t take it seriously.
Choices are up to you, what to eat.
What other’s are telling you what is good for you – totally wrong!
Never try to follow other people’s meal plans and diet, but you need to experiment with the food combinations and what is good for your body. 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.
If you crave on sugar and being lazy like me, chances are you don’t take in enough protein for your energy levels, muscles to 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 eat sugar, it is not fair. You can eat it, but in moderation. Our body is very adaptable, 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.
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.
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, pure water. Now I don’t recommend anything other than some mineral spring water, which doesn’t contain fluoride and chloride, but have magnesium, a little 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, and full of chemicals, byproducts from washing it back like hormones. I guess we can count up almost every countries for unsafe tap water.
There is a myth, people in my world used to say it to me too, that you should rotate your brands of mineral water because of some strange build-up theory of minerals… 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 consumes sugary stuffs, you can be sure, some minerals are less than normal, don’t worry. Otherwise, rather protein intake is low.
How to use up sugar?
Exercise almost daily is needed to maintain balance in your muscles and blood flow to various parts of your body, especially to your brain. 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 use up plant sugar (fruits) or just sugary stuffs after workout or jogging. You muscles are weak, use it with protein to regain damaged muscles tissues and store glycogen in it. Eat vegetables with protein.
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.
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 some time to clean out. Vitamine C is a good thing to use, it cleans you out used with minerals or with protein. I may post another blog about using Vitamine C in a perfect doesage. But never mix sugar with Vitamine C, you don’t want kidney problems, or may not but it is just stupid.
Sugar is bad if…
Well if you are only eating sugar. 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! I made him believe (ok, tried to liberate his mind) he has no problems and can consume it in little amounts of course, but his problem is caused by himself. He thinks he doesn’t worth his life, 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.
Old people can have diabetes too, full of life problems mentally and beliefs from decades, now imagine how hard 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. To support elderly, 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!
Sugar is needed by our brain, simple sugars, but any of them can help 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 are the only one, who feels what do your body need. And if you feel yourself well from it, that is the best!
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 fast, your muscles will weaken, lose muscle mass and 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 it. 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.
