We here all this stuff about sugar in our diet we know it’s bad many of probably don’t know why other than it’s bad and not to eat too much of it
There are lots of different sugars that are in our everyday life and in nature. However out of Alllllllllll the shugga’s in the land Glucose is on top! Glucose is fierce because this is where we get instant energy so that our muscles can move around and our brains get wired so lots of fun chemical reaction stuff goes on.
When it comes to being in what is called a “ pre-diabetic “ stage our body’s blood glucose level is higher than normal but not high enough to be considered diabetic. So that is why diagnosing pre-diabetes is crucial! Lifestyle Changes especially in our diet of what we eat and exercising have been proven to beat the onset of diabetes with people who have pre-diabetes.
Remember that sugar is a Carb one of the 3 sources of energy in our body the other sources are protein and fat so we need it to live.
When choosing sugar it’s always best to get it directly from the fruit than from juice. There is sucrose which is our table sugar and then there is fructose that comes from fruit and veggies. Between the two our taste buds require less sucrose and fructose to get the same level of sweetness that glucose provides.
Fructose is low-glycemic it slowly releases into your body whereas sucrose releases sugar into the body and immediately gives you a spurt of energy and then just as quickly as your sugar goes up it comes crashing down! Which overtime can create toxins in the body. Which overtime can turn into chronic diseases like diabetes.
When we eat low-glycemic sugars it releases energy to the body in moderation and it helps avoid the big sugar crash! # not a good look for a diva!
