Life of a brown without sugar? Doesn’t seem really cheerful, yet! We kinda “try” restricting ourselves with the oh-so-sweetness-in-our-life by believing in some of the myths about the poor, sugar.
In earlier eras, fat was the foe, and we were eating Snackwell’s treats full on. Presently the pendulum has swung and sugar is the demon, while we’re eating coconut oil by the spoonful. Like seriously? So confused about the poor sugar’s actual role, LOL!
Let’s just hold for a moment and understand this: Not all sugar is made the equivalent. But when I say there’s nothing intrinsically amiss with sugar, I’m not giving you a permit to eat a whole lot of your favorite maybe KitKat all at once and then once more!
The issue with sugar is that nowadays it’s additional to everything from organic products juice to pasta sauce. To help out better comprehend this extremely convoluted subject, Here I have summed up 5 Biggest Brown myths about sugar:
‘Natural’ sugar is healthier than refined sugar
Sugar is still sugar. Regardless of the fact that it is less refined, it still contains the same calories as white sugar and is metabolized in the same way. These natural sugars do contain some minerals, but you’d have to eat a LOT of the sugar in order to reap any nutritional benefits… which kind of defeats the purpose of using a natural sugar. The bottom line is that desserts made with natural sugars are still desserts and should be consumed in moderation.
There’s no sugar in this product
Just because it says so doesn’t mean IT ISN’T IN THERE, and labeling laws can make it tricky to identify if that’s the case. And then some brown people believing this myth will confidently use and invite others too for “Arey jee “DIET COKE” hai! No sugar!” and everything’s ruined here. Sugar comes with different names and formulas on food labels, such as dextrose, fructose, glucose, invert sugar, maltose, corn sweetener, corn syrup, lactose, raw sugar, sucrose, sugar syrup, cane crystals, cane sugar, and crystalline fructose. That’s a lot of words for basically the same thing! So start learning some of the synonyms for sugar too and help yourself.
Brown sugar is healthier than white sugar
We all believe this myth and feel satisfied that we aren’t using white sugar and instead using brown sugar into our Chai. The idea that brown and white sugar have big differences is another common nutrition myth. Brown sugar is actually just white sugar with molasses added back into it. The nutritional difference between brown sugar and white sugar is blur.
Avoid eating too much fruit
Fruit contains carbohydrates, mainly in the form of the naturally occurring sugar, fructose. Vegetables also contain carbohydrates, but typically much less than fruits, and therefore they contain fewer calories. The idea that fruit is loaded with sugar needs to be put into perspective. Yes, there is sugar in fruit, but it’s not like it’s a sack of empty calories for goodness’ sake! And “wesay bhi” It is practically impossible to overeat on fruits, so be sure to keep them in your diet.
Sugar Is The Enemy
A lot of people are like “no matter what you say, you are taking sugar in your diet na? You’re ruined”. No please! If you are eating a healthy whole foods diet year around, but eat a slice of cake on your birthday, you will not die. Just don’t eat it each day! Your body does need sugar to survive. To keep it healthy, simply take sugar from fruits and 100% whole grains full of fibers, vitamins, and minerals and you will be super good!
Now you are supposed to be a little less afraid of the sugar as you know that the above mentioned are just myths! Obviously, these myths are so “trendy” among brown people that you commit believing them; Not your fault! Nutright is at your service to lessen these fears; giving you the best of diet plans so that you need not worry about the calorie count or whatsoever.
