Most of us eat a lot of refined carbohydrates, and white sugar. White bread, white rice, sugar etc. are all processed foods and the processing is a process of removing all the nutrients in the food!
God gave us potatoes, we made fries. God gave us sugarcane, we created white sugar. Cane and other fruits are good for you, but High Fructose Corn Syrup and white sugar are not good for you.
Unfortunately the human body has not evolved as much as we think it has. The simplest way to eat healthy is to think ‘did this food exist 10000 years ago?’. If the answer is yes, your body knows how to deal with it. If the answer is no, it is likely to contain too much of sugar and other preservatives. In India there is not enough research to find out how much of sugar we have been consuming over the past say 100 years. However even to the untrained eye the consumption of packaged foods is visible, is it not?
Artificial sweeteners are worse than sugar, and is completely avoidable.
You can reduce the cravings for sugar by increasing your intake of proteins…and by avoiding white rice, maida, and by watching labels carefully. When in a shop LOOK for words like Maida, refined wheat, sugar, …and avoid them.
What is an anti sugar post doing in a finance blog?
Eating sensibly and healthy can save you tons of money later on. The impact of sugar on your wealth is just as bad as the impact on your health! We will soon be the diabetes capital of the world, and it is an expensive ‘disease’ to treat. Apart from this the impact of sugar is so bad that the world is going away from sugar. A few Indians are, but the speed at which we should be running away leaves a lot to be desired!
