Question About Sugar and Food

I was just curious. Doesn't Fruite Have Sugar? Is it health to eat fruits as snacks or on a regular bases.

Also is there a diffrence between natural sugar and the white stuff you get from the store?

1 Last Question. If I cut out the Sugar from my diet will that help in my weight loss?

Thank You.

Re: Question About Sugar and Food

the Answer to your questions are Yes and No and maybe.

Yes Fruits have sugar. Cutting out sugars Might help you lose weight.

Regardless of what some people may say...Sugar itself does not make one gain weight.. Too many Calories do. but Most High sugar foods are also high in calories. So when cutting them out you will usually cut down on calories. Also most high Sugar foods are not as Filling thus you tend to eat more.

All Carbs that you eat are treated in basically the same way...they are get converted to glucose.

The Only thing that really truly matters is Calories.
Weight Loss can be Quick! But Fat Loss takes Time!

We are OverFat...Not OverWeight!

Yes, fruit contains sugar.

Some fruits (particularly berries) contain significant amounts of antioxidants. Almost all diets recommend at least one or two servings of fruit per day . . . some allow for more than that. IMHO, it is somewhat individual how much ought to be included in your eating plan.

Chemically, sugars are all very similar. But a piece of fruit has nutrients and fiber that help lessen the impact of the sugar is contains on your system; the white stuff does not, of course.

There is no nutritional requirement for refined sugar, so cutting it out of your diet certainly cannot hurt!
