There is no doubt about it… Sugar makes us fat.
In fact, if you recall in my book, Eat Your Way to Abs, I specifically talk about sugar’s effects on weight-loss.
It’s really pretty simple:
When you eat sugar, your blood sugar gets elevated. In response to elevated blood sugar, your body releases a hormone called insulin from the pancreas to store the sugar.
Because your body only needs approximately 5 grams (which is a teaspoon) of sugar circulating in your blood stream.
In other words, insulin gets to work to pull the sugar out of the blood stream and into places where it can be used as energy (muscles) or stored (fat cells). The kicker is, when you have high blood sugar, you will have high insulin levels, and when you have high insulin levels you will never burn fat.
So what I really want people to get is this: The human body was NEVER designed for high sugar foods.
