Sugar and Fat: The lethal combination?
Reduce or avoid as much as you can the combination of sugar and fat since it is lethal!
According to a study made by two twin British doctors, sugar and fat by themselves are not that weight increasing. But the combination of them both make us gain weight all the time. The same study also found out that the “most delicious” cakes, cookies, doughnuts, desserts and bread are the ones containing the same amount of sugar and fat this is 50% sugar and 50% fat.
Throughout this Blog, we have been stating over and over again that we should cut sugar as much as we can since it damages our overall health. It is not mandatory to completely avoid sugar our bodies need sugar to get energy and they also need fat to function properly. The exact amount depends on our lifestyle whether it is a passive one or a very active one. If we like working out and going to the gym and practising some sport regularly, then we need to increase our sugar and carbs intake to obtain enough energy. On the other hand, if our life is pretty much sedentary, we should try to stay away from sugar and carbs as much as possible.
Listen to your body it knows best what to do!
