Low sugar diets and proper sugar intake

We enjoy of it, practically, we are born loving it, and the savor for sugar never seems to go away. But if you've been observed that more people are debating about problems of the sugar, you've presumably discovered that, like many delightful things in life, a little sugar is a delicious thing, but a lot of sugar can be very bad. Sugar, makes us fat, leads us into diabetes and occasions cravings we can't live without. Besides consuming foods low in sugar it is also important to looking for low-fat foods reliable for reducing cholesterol levels and cancer risks. Avoidance of all sugar (besides natural sugars found in fruits) has constituted the basis of some of the latest diets, helping people lose weight for a time, but frequently resulting in ling term crankiness and sometimes even constipation. Do we need sugar? How much is too much? So, which are the correct ways to put a temporary restraining order on the vast amounts of sugar most of us periodically consume? Proper sugar intake
1).- Meditate about it. Most people don't have any idea of their sugar intake. Who has time to read the labels on spaghetti sauce, pudding, fruit filled yogurt? When you read, you may be aghast to find sugar-and lots of it-in baby formulas, "healthy" cereals and nearly any prepackaged food you can name. You should do this: see and read all the labels of your products in the kitchen, and make a list of the ones that don't contain sugar. You may find it's a short list.

2).- Soda pop is a huge perpetrator in the sugar wars. A 12 ounce can of any soda has average 35 grams of sugar and 140 calories. If you gave up one daily can of soda, you'd save 980 calories a week, and at the end of a month, will have saved over 3,500 calories, or one pound of weight. The worst thing about soda is that don't have nutrients, so it isn't really a solution for the problem of hunger.

3).- Cut the sugar cravings. Head them off at the pass by eating real foods containing complex carbohydrates such as whole grains, proteins from meat, eggs and cheese and fiber found in vegetables. Try substituting a handful of almonds for a bag of M&Ms : you'll get protein and fiber that will ease your hunger and last awhile.

4).- Eat low-sugar sweets. Who says you should give up chocolate? In fact, dark chocolate contains healthy components; anti-oxidants shown to prevent cancer, enhance well-being and satiate hunger. But buy the good stuff; the dark chocolate whose ingredients include cocoa mass, cocoa liquor, sugar (yes, sugar) and lecithin. Don't buy chocolate whose first ingredient is sugar; it's been so watered down by the cheap addition of white sugar that its natural benefits are annulled.
