Hey babes!! ❤️🤗 I’m so sorry I’ve been away from the blogging world for the past two weeks. I’ve been studying my 🙊 off, but I’m so glad to be back!! That’s until my next test 💁🏼. Lets get down to business shall we. Sugar…. how much is too much!! The American Heart Association suggest men consuming 37.5 g/d and women to have 25 g/d.
So for myself, 25g/d would be about 6 teaspoons a day.
How sugar can effect you:
- Weight gain
- High blood pressure
- High blood sugar
- High levels of triglycerides
- High levels of uric acid levels
- You can become insulin resistant (type II diabetes)
- It’s additive
- No essential nutrients
- Fructose overload in the liver (fatty liver disease)
Did you know:
Fruit contains natural sugar, but also is packed with disease fighting vitamins and minerals. Within the correct portion size (2 1/2- 6 1/2) cups per day, fruit is a major food group. Let’s not forget it’s also recommended by the USDA 😉
Don’t forget it’s all about portion size (diabetic patients ask doctor).
Have a great day guys!!
